Suffocate Me was a 1993 extended play release and the debut single by Scottish band Angelfish.[1] While not charting on any mainstream Billboard charts, "Suffocate Me" was received well on college radio, and was followed up in 1994 by the release of Angelfish's self-titled debut album.[1]

The music video for "Suffocate Me" famously aired once by MTV during 120 Minutes, where it was seen by Garbage co-founder Steve Marker.[2] Shirley Manson was asked to join Garbage, and accepted.[3]
