This band's downfall was complete when they ripped off their own riff from 1995 (Zoom), which at the time was just about considered good enough for a brief slot in a 25 minute jam medley, to use as a lead single 13 years later (GLOW)

Was the song G.L.O.W. named after the 80s women's wrestling league?

Speaking of which, the song "Don't Kidnap" on season 2 of G.L.O.W. sounds better than anything the Pumpkins have released in years, lol.

Hopefully we'll get some of that stupidity with one of these songs.

Howard Stern: Wow, Billy! I really liked every song on the new EP! The song Alienation is especially good. Can you tell me what it's about?

Billy: Well, first off, the title is actually pronounced A-LION-NATION. It's a metaphor for how the country we live in now is made of people who can shapeshift into lions. I know. I've seen it happen.

I support that prediction and your assertion that one cannot help but think of "Seek and Destroy."

Well, to be fair, that was just a bunch of noodling on themes strung together. I wished I could hear many of them in full when I first heard that. There's nothing wrong with pulling from a theme you like and fleshing it out.

Sounds like a Monuments out-take.

I like the idea of Billy sitting down and telling D'arcy..."no, the chorus on glow is come on come on come on can you feel it. FOL is come on and feelaio. Come on let's go says come on let's go.....way different songs. How do you not get this?"

Dude was lyrically bankrupt back then.

I think he was aiming for the Nobel Prize for Literature with that one.
