    Agreed. The best song on the album is hummer, though. This album is one of the top 5 I would want on a desert island. Awesome. Rocket is a song that gets it on, too.

    hummer is fucking teats. it's by far my favorite pumpkins song/solo to play (especially midway through the song where the distortion cuts out and it kicks into the trippy dreamy melodic part leading to the solo).

    Dink, it me, Nerd. Remember me?

    I saw Smashing Pumpkins back in the summer of '94 when I was just a sweet, young thing. Getting into them back then defined what I like in music to this day.

    I think that is right around when I saw them. I was a little 11 year old pup, and it blew the doors down for me.

    You must've had badass parents. I was 19 and it blew the doors down for me, too.
