"Bush" were an English alternative rock band formed in 1992. Their debut album was the self-released ''Sixteen Stone'' in 1994.
The name Bush came about because they used to live in Shepherd's Bush, London. In Canada, they were once known as BushX, because the 1970s band Bush, led by Domenic Troiano, owned the Canadian rights to the name. In April 1997, it was announced that Troiano had agreed to let them use the name Bush in Canada without the letter X, in exchange for donating $20,000 each to the Starlight Foundation and the Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund.
Frustrated by the disappointing sales of their fifth album, ''Golden State'' (2001), and the lack of support the band was receiving from Atlantic, the band decided to go on a hiatus. Band members went to work on various other musical projects, most notably Gavin Rossdale, who formed a new band, Institute. In recent interviews, Rossdale said he hasn't ruled out the possibility of Bush getting back together, but says it is on the back burner at the moment.
In 2005, Bush released ''The Best of: 1994-1999'', a greatest hits compilation, and ''Zen X Four'', a CD and DVD which features the band's music videos. ''...
