Bush may refer to at least 2 artists: 1. A British post-grunge band 2. A Canadian rock band 1. Bush is an English alternative rock band formed in 1992. The group chose the name "Bush" because they used to live in Shepherd's Bush, London. Their first album, Sixteen Stone (1994), was a huge commercial success. Almost overnight, Bush went from playing small pubs in London to headlining arenas in the US, the result of extensive promotion on MTV and non-stop touring. Critics labeled them as an inferior derivative of bands such as Nirvana and Pixies, and this criticism followed them throughout their career as a band.

Bush were considered Nirvana's best students back in the day, before Gwen you-know-who got involved with their name. It's good to see some grunge riffs getting so much airplay these days though, in a song that is about finding your exit in the face of a certain person, some catchy "oh-oh's", a radio-friendly bridge completing this great tune!
