    One of the most overated bands ever shoved down the publics throat in the dying days of MTV fronted by one of the most pretentious self important douchebags in the history of music.

    first couple of cds were good..then I went and saw them in concert..fucking 45 minute guitar feedback solo...people were streaming out before the show was over. First time I have been to a concert and nobody was asking for an encore.

    I wouldn't say fan per se but I like a couple of their songs. Tonight Tonight and 1979 bring back good memories from High School. Good interview today. I usually give Howard shit but this was a pretty good one.

    Huge fan of the Smashing Pumpkins though I haven't really been into any of their albums after mellon collie. Siamese Dream is one of my personal favorites.

    Like a few of their tracks, but it's hard to stomach a guy who names an album "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness". That's like an emo version of a Spinal Tap album title.

    His solo album was fantastic. I'm glad the Smashing Pumpkins are still around, if in name, at least, but I don't know about this new batch of songs. Hopefully it'll grow on me.

    I'll listen to Cherub Rock or Bullet With Butterfly Wings if it comes on the radio, but that's about it. I can't take his whiny voice...."I used to be a little boy".....STFU. :suicide:

    Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (arguably the most pretentious album title ever) were good albums. Everything else they have done is mediocre. Personally, I have to be in a very specific mood to listen to him and Corrigan's voice can only be taken in short doses.

    No. I think I kinda liked one of their songs once but I can't remember its name. Someone mentioned 1979? Maybe that was it. I'll be in the car tonight so maybe I'll catch the interview.

    How could you have avoided Smashing Pumpkins? Are you twelve? Do you listen to 'urban' stations exclusively? No TV? Do you live in Alaska.or someplace where things take like 20 years to become popular?

    Siamese Dream is a 90's Alt rock masterpiece. Mellon Collie also has some great music. I also love Pieces Iscariot to round out the triple play. Not sure where Billy's head has been the last 15 years but the stuff he has done lately really doesn't move me like the old stuff does.
