Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Billy Corgan taking on the culture of social media. He explained to NME: "In essence, being in this culture is about being transparent - if you don't have the flashy pic on your social media and you don't have some cool thing that you're doing every moment of every day, you must be missing out on the party or the selfie at Glastonbury or duh-duh-duh."
