Smashing Pumpkins have vowed never to make another album - because frontman Billy Corgan is sick of fans only listening to their favourite tracks.
The moody rockers split in 2000 before reuniting in 2006 to release a new LP, Zeitgeist.
But the record received mixed reviews - and Corgan has now quit recording albums because he insists fans don't even listen to every song.
He says, "There is no point. People don't even listen to it all. They put it on their iPod, they drag over the two singles, and skip over the rest... Our primary function now is to be a singles band, that drives Pumpkins Inc through singles. We'll still be creative, but in a different form."
The band also plan to turn their back on stadium concerts and only play tiny venues in future.
Corgan adds: "We'll go small and do exactly what we want to do and stop playing catalogue. We'll be like a new band that can't rely on old gimmicks. I'm not stupid. I want people to feel good about what we do."
