WARDEN TRACKS... Today's song is not a rock song, but its rock connections run deep.  This band's drummer is the guy who produced two of the biggest rock albums of the 90s / of all time: "NEVERMIND" by Nirvana, and "SIAMESE DREAM" by Smashing Pumpkins.  His name is Butch Vig, he's often recognized as one of the best record producers ever, and his band, with the sultry-voiced Shirley Manson, is called GARBAGE.  The track is "BREAKING UP THE GIRL."  Warning: if you "only listen to rock," then you'll probably hate this tune, but if you want some beats, a sexy voice, and slick, bad-ass production, then you'll dig it!  Buy GARBAGE's music via Amazon here.
