Happy Birthday Song of the Day: Suede – Trash


17 years ago today, Suede released Trash, the first single off their third record, Coming Up. For everyone who was wondering about what Suede would look and sound like post Bernard Butler, this was it.

Trash was about as far a departure from previous Suede songs as you can get. Rather then dark and orchestral, it was just… fun. It was a drastic shift in sound for the band, and commercially, it worked. Both the single and subsequent album became huge hits.

While I still prefer the Dog Man Star years of the group, the sheer pop brilliance of the Coming Up era left us with some pretty awesome songs. Trash is definitely one of them.

Happy Birthday!
