'Swallowed' is a song by British post-grunge band Bush. It was included on the 1996 album "Razorblade Suitcase", which topped the Billboard 200 chart. It was later included on the remix album "Deconstructed", the live album "Zen X Four", and the Bush greatest hits compilation. It was nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance at the 1996 Grammy Awards, but lost to the Smashing Pumpkins' "The End Is The Beginning Is The End".


"Swallowed" was released as the first single from the follow up to their massively successful debut album, "Sixteen Stone" which was released two years earlier. Upon release, the song topped the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks for a consecutive 7 weeks. This is the longest Bush ever stayed at number 1. It was also Bush's biggest hit in their native Britain, where it peaked at number 7 in the UK Singles Chart.

Music video

The music video, directed by Jamie Morgan and released in November 1996, is set in a retro apartment with a myriad of alternative youths. [http://www.mvdbase.com/video.php?id=4763] A neon crucifix (which would later become the album cover for "Deconstructed") is frequently interspersed amongst the antics of houseguests.

The video was nominated for several MTV Video Music Awards.
