The band Garbage — known for hit songs “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy When It Rains” — is out with their seventh album, No Gods No Masters. Frontwoman Shirley Manson discusses the album’s themes of racism and sexism.  

“As a woman, a lot of the time you’re not judged for your work, you’re judged for your beauty and your youth,” Manson says. “For women there is a future beyond your 30s when you develop your first wrinkle.”
