Rockers Garbage fell victim to an internet prankster on Wednesday (17Oct12) when their Twitter.com page was hacked.

The joker took over the band's verified account and sent out dozens of tweets pretending to be frontwoman Shirley Manson under the influence.

The messages included, "Getting a lot of questions about what I'm drinking. Is it that obvious I'm drunk??? Vanilla Malt and a few coolers..." as well as "There will be whipped cream and Shirley for all."

However, the hacker then told followers, "I hacked this stupid... band and have been f**king with you for ages!" and asked "really attractive girls" to post their pictures.

The real Manson later regained control of the Twitter page and apologised to "every single one of my fans" for the security breach, insisting, "The hacker has tweeted hundreds of times and I cannot remove them all. Bear with me..."
