Rotten Apples

Rotten Apples

"''Rotten Apples"'' is a greatest hits compilation album by the rock band the Smashing Pumpkins. In the US, it was released in 2001 together with ''Judas 0''. The Pumpkins' final recording, "Untitled", completed in the days leading up to the band's final concert at the Metro in Chicago, is the final track on the album, and was released as a single.

The ironic title of the album is the namesake of a popular Pumpkins' b-side that was released on the Tonight, Tonight single and serves as a metaphor for the band's career. Peaking at #31 in the U.S., the album has - as of May 2005 - sold 729,000 units.

There exist two versions of Rotten Apples, one is exclusive to the United States. The US version includes the songs "Siva" and "Landslide" which are replaced by "I Am One" and "Try, Try, Try" in the international version.
