“Out on tour with the Smashing Pumpkins / Nature’s kids, they don’t have no function / I don’t understand what they mean / And I really could really give a f—,” Pavement’s Stephen Malkmus famously sang on ‘Range Life,’ the epic country rock jam off the band’s 1994 album, ‘Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.’ Pavement never actually hit the road with the Pumpkins, but understandably, that didn’t stop Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan from taking offense. “I think it’s rooted in jealousy,” he said at the time, later adding, “People don’t fall in love to Pavement … they put on Smashing Pumpkins or Hole or Nirvana, because these bands actually mean something to them.”

More than a decade later, Corgan’s still talking about Pavement.
