Buzz is one of the albums from Christian rock band Guardian. The album was released in October 1995 and was produced by Steve Taylor. The album takes the band into the realms of alternative music and grunge common of the 90s.

Guardian opened for Taylor in a tour which prompted them to ask him to produce their next album. Taylor was hesitant to do so at first, but then agreed as he became friends of the band.

  • A picture of astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
  • A close-up of a bee hive.
  • A picture of two girls whispering between them (as in "buzzing").
  • A picture of a mother giving a buzz cut haircut to her young son. Note: This picture is actually David Bach's mom giving his older brother a haircut.
