About Stupid Girl

"Stupid Girl" is a song recorded by alternative rock band Garbage for the band's self-titled debut studio album. The song was composed and produced by bandmembers Duke Erikson, Shirley Manson, Steve Marker, and Butch Vig. "Stupid Girl" features lyrics about a young woman's ambivalence, and a musical arrangement centered on both a repetitive bassline and a drum sample from The Clash's 1980 hit "Train in Vain". The song was released by Almo Sounds in North America and Mushroom Records worldwide as the band's fourth international single in 1996. "Stupid Girl" became their biggest hit in United States and the United Kingdom, with its performance on the charts driven by an innovative music video and remixes which gained massive airplay across the world. The success of "Stupid Girl" propelled sales of its parent album Garbage into the top twenty of the Billboard 200 and into the top ten of the UK Albums Chart. Reviews of the song were positive, with praise to the production. "Stupid Girl" was nominated for two Grammy Awards, Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group, as well as the Danish Grammy for Best Rock Song, an MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist and an MTV Europe Music Award for Best Song.

You pretend you're high 
Pretend you're bored 
Pretend you're anything 
Just to be adored

All you had you wasted

What drives you on 
Can drive you mad 
A million lies to sell yourself 
Is all you ever had

Don't believe in hate 
Don't believe in anything 
That you can't waste
