Music Video: Garbage–“Queer”


I’ve always loved this song and remember watching the video back when MTV was still a novelty to me (we didn’t have MTV in South Africa until the mid-nineties).  The video above is the original version of the video and song and is not the remastered version that appeared later on MTV.

“Queer” was the third of five singles from their debut album Garbage and it is my favourite track on the album after “Milk”.  This was one of my favourite albums of the mid-nineties but strangely enough, I didn’t really rate any of their later albums.  Perhaps it is time I bought their greatest hits album Absolute Garbage?



  1. It's been a few years since I last heard this track, great song. I find it amazing that the first time I heard of Shirley Manson, she was playing keyboard and singing backing vocals in Goodbye Mr Mcknezie, she has come a long way.

  2. Thanks! I remember when this came out. Cool tune and I haven't heard Garbage in ages.

  3. @ William: I had no idea Shirley Manson was in Goodbye Mister McKenzie first!!!! You learn something new everyday!

    @ Brent: Yeah, I got their greatest hits after writing this and it is definitely worth it.
