Short Bus is the debut album by American industrial rock band Filter. It was released in 1995 and has sold over one million copies in the United States. It is best known for their hit song "Hey Man Nice Shot". Richard Patrick said in an interview that Trent Reznor had told him he should make his own record while he went off to work on The Downward Spiral. Patrick, while still retaining the industrial element in the music, chose to focus on the guitars, which he felt was something missing when he played with Nine Inch Nails. He also chose not to go with the standard industrial rock look which he felt would set them apart.
