Led by guitarist/vocalist Gavin Rossdale, Bush became the first post-Nirvana British band to hit it big in America. Of course, they became a hit by playing by the grunge rules -- they had loud guitars, guttural vocals, stop-start rhythms, and extreme dynamics. Formed in 1992 their debut album was the self-released 'Sixteen Stone' in 1994. In 1996 they released 'Razorblade Suitcase' and a year after 'Deconstructed' was released. Bush came out with 'The Science of Things' in 1999 and 'Golden State' in 2001. In 2004 the band released a best-of album and their most recent album Zen X Four came out in 2005. Bush has one Gold album and three Platinum albums and have sold over 10 million records in the United States. The band separated in 2002 but the name was revived in 2010 and they began work on a new album, The Sea of Memories, which was released in September 2011. The group chose the name "Bush" because they used to live in Shepherd's Bush, London.
