This sweet customized band t-shirt was made using a shirt commemorating Smashing Pumpkins’ hit 1995 album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. This was the band’s third studio album and it debuted at the top of the Billboard 200, in part thanks to the success of the album’s lead single “Bullet with Butterfly Wings”. The band had already achieved mainstream success with their previous album Siamese Dreams, but Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness helped to the propel the group to superstar status, and they became one of the most commercially successful bands of the 1990s.  

Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness eventually went certified diamond and spawned four other hit singles in addition to “Bullet with Butterfly Wings”. These included “1979”, “Zero”, “Tonight, Tonight”, and “Thirty Three”. The album garnered an impressive seven nominations at the 1997 Grammy Awards, including one for Album of the Year. The group actually only managed to win one award at the ceremony. “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” was awarded Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal, but this was Smashing Pumpkins’ first ever Grammy. The album’s legacy continues as it remains a seminal classic of 1990s alternative rock.  

Fits like a modern unisex adult small. This shirt has been heavily altered and distressed. It has multiple holes. The neck and sleeves have been cut into a tank and the sides have been taken in, see pics.
