This was originally written as a ballad. Billy Corgan explained to MusicRadar.com
: "We actually played it live as a ballad, and it went over great. People loved the song. When they found out we were recording it, they wrote on my Twitter, 'Don't f--k it up!' But we just felt there wasn't as much potential in it as a ballad. It had what we call a 'shoegazer' vibe, like the band Ride or something."
