I was searching Wikipedia and I came across this. Ok so everyone knows (well almost :D ) that KHWHD is my favourite song. I noticed that it said that it was a single, but it says,

"Although no videos were released for this album, "Kick Him When He's Down" was released as a single in 1995 to airplay only, probably to promote band's older material after the success of Smash, which had been released a year before."

Does anyone know anything about this or have anymore info? Just curious.. thanks.

Here's the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kick_Him_When_He%27s_Down

First i've heard of it getting played after Smash was released. I'm pretty sure it got played a couple times on collage/indie radio a few times though before Smash.

KROQ played this song back in 1995, and it reached #84 on the countdown list (http://www.rocklists.com/kroq-1995.html).

Yeah, it was released as a promotional single in '95. I'm pretty sure of this.
