This song was the second and final commercial single from Smashing Pumpkins' fourth album Adore. Upon its release in 1998, this song received favorable reviews by most critics. Rolling Stone noted that the song "picks up on the synth-pop echoes of the 1996 Pumpkins hit '1979.'"
The video for this song debuted on MTV's popular show 120 Minutes on September 16, 1998.
The video for this song was directed by husband and wife team Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, who had previously worked with the band on four other music videos including 1996's "1979." Dayton and Faris would later go on to direct the Oscar-nominated and critically praised 2006 black comedy film Little Miss Sunshine.
In the video, the band can be seen performing for selected fans. The set played at the taping included heavier songs the band was not performing during regular concerts at the time, such as "Where Boys Fear to Tread," "Bodies," and "Pug."
