Watch: Smashing Pumpkins Cover David Bowie's "Space Oddity"

As the world falls in love with astronaut Chris Hadfield's cover of "Space Oddity," which he recorded in actual space—7.3 million views in two days!—we're also flipping out over another rendition of the classic David Bowie track.

Smashing Pumpkins performed the 1969 single atop an Austin rooftop at their SXSW showcase in March. High quality footage has now arrived for their heavy, rockin' rendition, part of a live performance TV special, Guitar Center Sessions, that premieres May 17.
