Memorabilia Monday: Bullet With Butterfly Wings Music Video Prop
October 27, 2015
With the celebration of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness turning 20 years old, we take a look at a piece of memorabilia from the album's first music video, "Bullet With Butterfly Wings". The music video features stars that were hand-cut from copper metal. One of these stars (pictured) is signed by the entire band!
The song went on to win the 1997 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance!
Note: When asked why the band chose "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" for the first video and single, Billy Corgan responded "the record company did a survey of K-Mart shoppers between 30 and 40 and this is the song they came up with". "This is the blue light special", said Chamberlin.
