About Supergrass

Survivors of the ’90s Britpop explosion, rock band Supergrass navigated the hype and continued topping the UK charts as they refined their sound throughout the 2000s.

∙ Formed in 1993, Supergrass debuted the following year with the semi-autobiographical single “Caught By the Fuzz,” which was championed by radio legend John Peel.
∙ Their first LP, 1995’s I Should Coco, debuted at No. 1 on the UK album chart and eventually went Platinum, driven by the success of the single “Alright.”
I Should Coco was nominated for the Mercury Prize, and over the next year Supergrass won an NME Award (for Best New Band) and a BRIT Award (for British Breakthrough Act).
∙ In 1997, In It for the Money hit No. 2 on the UK album chart, and the group’s next three albums—along with the 2004 best-of collection Supergrass Is 10—landed in the Top 10.
∙ Created in collaboration with Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, the video for 1999’s “Pumping on Your Stereo” earned the band their second BRIT nomination for Best British Video.
∙ Nearly a decade after their initial split, Supergrass reunited in 2019 to perform at the Glastonbury Festival’s annual Pilton Party.
