Fronted by Scottish singer Shirley Manson, rock band Garbage has been slaying since the mid-’90s. Their debut album is home to hits “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy When It Rains,” and “Version 2.0” has “I Think I’m Paranoid.” Five albums have followed including last year’s politically charged “No Gods No Masters.” As for the live show, it’s still pure fire as Manson rules the stage.
