Grass Show (often written Grass~Show®) was a Britpop-inspired indie band from Sweden, active in the mid- to late-1990s. The band released one album in the United Kingdom, Something Smells Good In Stinkville (1997), from which there were three singles, "1962", "Freak Show" and "Out Of The Void". The album contains a cover version of the Ace of Base song, "All That She Wants".

The artwork Grass Show's releases was notable as it often portrayed imagery of 1950s American families, which were juxtaposed with surreal and absurd elements. For example, the sleeve for the "1962" single has images of families cooking trainers.
