*Bullet with Butterfly Wings* is a song by American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins. It was the lead single from the band’s 1995 double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. The song won the 1997 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance. This song was the band’s first Top 40 US hit, peaking at number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was named the 91st best hard rock song of all time by VH1. The song is a playable track in the video game Guitar Hero 5.

Video: The music video for the song, directed by Samuel Bayer, is a performance video with heavy conceptual elements. The visual look of the video was inspired by documentaries about diamond mining, while, in contrast, the band used the video to debut their new glam rock wardrobes – notably, Billy Corgan’s black shirt with the word *Zero* written in Silver, and Silver pants. The video also marks the last filmed appearance of Billy Corgan prior to his decision to shave his head.
