that's hard. overall 1979 is the strongest single for b sides overall, but can't choose 1 b side.

Loving stellar and DFA at the moment. Great zeitgesit b sides.

1979 disc is superb no doubt. Same with Zero.

STRTJ, TAFH, Hello Kitty Kat, Marquis in Spades, Stellar

I would have to say STRTJ and Starla would have to up there near the top.

Stellar kind of reminds me of older Pumpkins...and I think that's why we all took to it like we did.

Mouths of Babes is another good one.

pretty much everything mentioned so far. I tend to like the zero single a lot. Hello Kitty Kat. I like pissant; i don't see much love for that one.

Tough question. So many to consider, so I'll throw out 4 that I love:

1. Hello Kitty Kat - One of their best songs ever. Would love this to make a live comeback

2. Medellia Of The Grey Skies - Sublime

3. Ugly - I just love the simplicity of it and the way the muted guitar just fits the vocals so well

4. Not Worth Asking - I just get hooked on the chorus for this one

i've always been surprised how much people seem to like STRTJ, it never stood out to me that much.

I'm in a rocking mood, so I will say Hello Kitty Kat

TAFH for me for sure... but honorable mention is the cover of "Dreaming" which pretty much shits on the original and is really beautiful IMO

i just listened to it, dont think its too bad. Although the fact i hadn't listened to it in years says something. French movie theme also pretty shoddy.

I think even if you eliminate all studio album tracks from their catalogue that the pumpkins would still be more impressive than 95% of other bands out there.

Cards on the table i only really became an SP fan in january 1999, however i remember being like 8 and seeing the tonight tonight video and a smashing pumpkins day on some sunday music show where they showed siva and i like that too. Guess i was a late developer when it came to music.

Best Pumpkins B-side, that's like choosing just one type of pizza to eat for life...

My favorites are:

- Blue (acoustic, the version they did on the Westwood radio with the bongos, pure magic... scrap Perfect with Jimmy and play this!)
- Frail & Bedazzled (hell just about anything off Pisces)
- God
- Home (does this count?)
