"Glycerine" is the 4th single from post-grunge band Bush's debut album Sixteen Stone. Bush had increasing popularity in the United States with the band's singles doing well on America. With the third single "Comedown," Bush reached number 1 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart for two weeks. "Glyercine" did the same. The song arguably is Bush's most recognizable song. Thanks to the success of Sixteen Stone, the follow up album Razorblade Suitcase debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200, and sold 3,000,000 copies. The video for Glycerine was notable for being shot in a very short time period when the band was on tour in the United States. The video was shot so quickly because the band's visas had expired. In spite of being very simple and unadorned, the video was highly acclaimed and won several awards, including the MTV Video Music Award - Viewer's Choice from the 1996 MTV Video Music Awards.
