  1. Garbage

    Garbage is an alternative rock band formed in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1994. The group consists of Scottish singer Shirley Manson and American musicians Duke Erikson, Steve Marker, and Butch Vig. All four members are involved in songwriting and production. The band have counted worldwide album sales of over 17 million units. Garbage released a string of increasingly successful singles in 1995–1996, including "Stupid Girl" and "Only Happy When It Rains". Their debut album, Garbage, was an unexpected smash, selling over 4 million copies and certified double platinum in the UK, US, and Australia. Garbage won the Breakthrough Artist award at the 1996 MTV Europe Music Awards. Garbage spent two years working on follow-up album, Version 2.0, which topped the charts in the UK upon its 1998 release and the following year was nominated for two Grammy Awards, Album of the Year and Best Rock Album. Version 2.0 went on to match the sales of its predecessor. Garbage followed this up by performing and co-producing the theme song to the nineteenth James Bond movie The World Is Not Enough. Despite being named one of Rolling Stone's Top 10 Albums of the Year, Garbage's 2001 third album Beautiful Garbage failed to match the commercial success achieved by its predecessors. Garbage quietly disbanded in late 2003, but regrouped to complete fourth album Bleed Like Me in 2005, peaking at a career-high No. 4 in the US. The band cut short their concert tour in support of Bleed Like Me announcing an "indefinite hiatus", emphasizing that they had not broken up, but wished to pursue personal interests.

From the depths of one’s self, a powerful energy of understanding and awareness emerges, everything is rapidly going out.

An endless, contagious laugh and a huge wicked, mocking, malicious smile in the soul and on the face. And from this smile and this laugh, everyone who sees her also begins to smile, and then laugh like crazy, and completely go crazy. All this insight from deep disappointment in everything and everything. Introducing into the lyrical, vital, sad sadness in the soul of man. 4. A race of smiles or a race called: Smile.

Entrance into this world in the form of a smile in the shape of a heart, you enter the human world, into the dimension of laughter, the sarcastic-satirical-ironic sphere of comic, funny pessimism. The way out of this dimension is also in the form of a smile in the shape of a heart. 17. Human reality is an artificial chaos of the subconscious, turned upside down, a made-up world woven from a thousand and a thousand ideas. Where their consciousness gradually mutates, turning them thereby into unknown monsters. 18. Only those steps are holy that overwhelm the madness and chaos in the world. 19.

From the awareness of everything and everything, the smile on the face becomes wider and wider. 35. Creativity is like a butterfly flying, light wings of inspiration will help fly away beyond the limits of human understanding. 36. Pure madness is when you completely stop pretending. 37. Depression is a free fall into the depths of one’s soul. 38. The laughter of rage and the bloody gloom in a smile in consciousness from an evil joke of reality from the fact that you are not worthy to live like everyone else. The ragged strings of the ever-laughing psyche, like the blinking light of madness where there is insight between light and darkness. The interrupted melody of the harmony of the soul. The silence of insight overcomes the mind, the light is visible leading to a new dimension of thinking, because everything is visible through the transparent eyelids of the vigilance of fear, and only unconsciousness temporarily closes our eyes from fatigue in the realm of the subconscious.
