The Aeroplane Flies High: Bullet with Butterfly Wings / 1979 EPs

Frank and Pat finally reach the beginning of the end of the Mellon Collie era with the 1996 b-sides box set The Aeroplane Flies High! In Part 1 of our 3-part coverage of everyone's favorite hypnotic CD suitcase, we'll be tackling the "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" and "1979" singles (both of which contain some of our all-time favorite SP b-sides). We draw parallels between The Cars' and The Pumpkins' underrated influence on today's music, give more love for The Cure and ponder how "Ugly" is a secret metal song. All that plus hot takes on which James Iha tracks should have made the Mellon Collie cut and more Wayne's World references than necessary! Schwing!
