Gavin Rossdale Was In ‘Shock’ After Supreme Court Overturned Roe V. Wade

In a recent interview, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale spoke on the band’s single “More Than Machines,” which alludes to the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade. Rossdale said, “Well, it was one of the last songs we wrote for the record. And weirdly, before that song was done, the whole Roe v. Wade issue had arisen. And I was just in shock.”

He continued, “I really felt it — I felt the invasion, and I felt protective of the women who were now being told, dictated to about their bodies. I couldn’t connect to it. Maybe I’m English, maybe I’m too libertarian… I just was, like, ‘What is that?’ It was like a thorn in my shoe.”
