Tune in tonight to see Bush perform a special version of “Glycerine” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Tomorrow, the band will appear on NBC’s “Today.”

The English rock band formed in London in 1992. In 1994, Bush found immediate success outside the U.K. with the release of debut album, “Sixteen Stone,” which is certified six-times multi-Platinum by the RIAA. They went on to become one of the most commercially successful rock bands of the 1990s, selling over 10 million records in the U.S. and 24 million records worldwide.

With over 1 billion streams and a procession of No. 1 singles, the band – comprising Gavin Rossdale (vocals, guitar); Chris Traynor (guitar); Corey Britz (bass); and Nik Hughes (drums) – stands tall as rock outliers whose imprint only widens as the years pass. 

“Loaded: The Greatest Hits 1994-2023” (Round Hill Records), Bush’s first-ever greatest hits collection, provides an expansive view of their incredible legacy with 21 tracks spanning nearly 30 years – from their breakthrough hit, “Everything’s Zen,” to their latest single, “Nowhere To Go But Everywhere,” which is already within the Top 20 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart.

Paste Magazine observed, “The gargantuan success of … Sixteen Stone, served as a palpable shift in the way rock music sounded.” Atwood Magazine noted, "31 years into their career, English rock band Bush sound better than ever as they come at life’s fleeting nature with unrelenting passion and zeal, unpacking impermanence in the heavy and hard-hitting ‘Nowhere to Go But Everywhere.’ ” Consequence said, “ ‘Nowhere to Go But Everywhere’ is a heavy grunger with surging power chords and a standout vocal performance from frontman Gavin Rossdale.”

The band also won acclaim for its 2023 tour, with Billboard noting, “(Rossdale) seems driven to connect with his audience and remind them that Bush is not just a heritage act, but very much alive and well and making new music.” Orlando Weekly said, "The energy and sound summoned up the essence of the 1990s, creating an immersive experience that resonated with fans in the building … blending the past with the present in a way that captivated the audience.”
