"Mouth" is a 1996 song by British post-grunge band Bush from their second album Razorblade Suitcase. Though not released as a single, it was remixed by Bush under the pseudonym Stingray for the 1997 remix album Deconstructed and was released as a single on October 7, 1997, due largely in part to it being featured prominently in both the trailer and the 1997 film An American Werewolf in Paris. The Stingray remix was the version that made the song popular and received airplay on radio peaking number 5 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. The original version was never a single or been recognized nor it was popular but few radio stations managed to play the original version despite not entering any U.S. or international charts unlike the remix that made the song successful.
