I was angry when I met you
I think I’m angry still
We can try to talk it over
If you say you’ll help me out

Don’t worry baby (don’t worry baby)
No need to fight
Don’t worry baby (don’t worry baby)
We’ll be alright

[Chorus:]
This is the noise that keeps me awake
My head explodes and my body aches
Push it, make the beats go harder
Push it, make the beats go harder

I’m sorry that I hurt you
Please don’t ask me why
I want to see you happy
I want to see you shine

Don’t worry baby (don’t worry baby)
Don’t be uptight
Don’t worry baby (don’t worry baby)
We’ll stay up all night

[Chorus:]
C’mon push it, you can do it
C’mon prove it, nothing to it
C’mon use it, let’s get through it
C’mon push it, you can do it

Don’t worry baby (don’t worry baby)
Don’t be uptight
Don’t worry baby (don’t worry baby)
We’ll stay up all night

[Chorus (3x):]
Don’t worry baby
We’ll be alright
Don’t worry baby
We’ll be alright

Push it
Push it
Push it
Push it
Push it.

“Push It” is an alternative rock song written, produced and performed by Garbage. “Push It” was the lead single released from their second album Version 2.0 and became a worldwide hit in 1998. Incorporating a melodic line from Beach Boys hit “Don’t Worry Baby”, “Push It” was critically acclaimed, receiving nominations at that year’s MTV Europe Music Awards and at the Miami Winter Music Conference. The music video for “Push It” went on to receive eight nominations at the MTV Video Music Awards. In 2007, “Push It” was remastered and included on Garbage’s greatest hits album Absolute Garbage.

“Push It” was written and recorded at Smart Studios during the 1997 sessions for Version 2.0. Bass on “Push It” is performed by Daniel Shulman.

“Push It” contains an interpolation of Californian band the Beach Boys hit “Don’t Worry Baby” which was written by members Brian Wilson and Roger Christian and 1980s act Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It” written by Herbie Azor.

“On “Push It”, it was how far can we go, to just get so intense. The verses are slow and dreamy and pull you in, and then, of course, it gets very confrontational. The Beach Boys thing was a conscious thing, Shirley just came up with the lyric don’t worry baby, and we wanted to try having a vocal chorus answering her. I think it was Steve who sampled the Beach Boys right off the record. So, we had Shirley Manson singing and the Beach Boys answering her. It was amazing.”

Garbage originally sampled the actual Beach Boys vocal track, but it wouldn’t work with the song, so Shirley re-sung the lyric. After debating whether to keep the line, they sent a tape to Brian Wilson, who gave them permission to use the sample, and also said he liked the song and asked if he could keep the tape.
