I believe that if these songs were released on either Siamese Dream or Mellon Collie they would have been regularly played on the radio and considered classics today:
That's the Way (My Love Is)
The Rose March
Hopefully Oceania gets SP some more positive attention worldwide and people (not just longtime fans) will want to listen to them again.
I really disagree. None of these songs except Tom Tom and possibly The Fellowship would have been a fit for radio play at that time. Most of these sounds would never even have made the cut to be on those albums in the first place.
I might also be in the minority but I'm pretty sure That's the Way (the album version) is the worst smashing pumpkins song. I do like it better on acoustic, though.

I like some of the new stuff too, doesn't make his comments any less ridiculous. "Steller", for example, is as good as the 90's material. It still wouldn't have gotten radio play back then, it's not a pop song. It couldn't have been a single. As for the rest, well... come on.
Right. Stellar is a great song but it's not a single type song.
