They are the best band ever, it sucked seeing them brake up but the memory will remain, I will miss the specially Billy Corgan.

The Smashing pumpkins are the best group i've ever heard and there are great! Everytime I hear them it helps me to concetrate on stuff and i escape into this fantasy that i have always had. I listen to them for a long time, in school, at home, and at my friends. Man I love them and even though they dont play together anymore i still listen to them. Well they'll always be my #1 and there just an amazing band or was. I still like ZWAN too, but i dont know its just too different and not the same, but its still OK! I LOVE THE SMASHING PUMPKINS!!!!!!!!!

they broke up because THEY weren't awesome.. 90% of their music was all corgan.. darcy and iha and chamberlain would have a REAL hard time looking you in the face and saying that they were really a part of the production process... corgan was looking to move on, to a different sound, and to musicians who worked... smashing pumpkins were great, and damn it.. zwan is too.

I was 8 i think when i heard mellon collie and the infinite sadness... and these memories cant go away now... I dont know what to think concerning the whole breakup thing, i just guess if they broke up there must have been a good reason for it, who knows ?
if corgan really "owned" all the ideas and things, i guess Zwan is gonna turn out just the same way the Smashing pumkins did, and then... wow, i guess in a few years theyll be really popular and fill up the empty minds of the world with their awesome fantasy..
dont let the kid inside your mind die.

my first pumpkins album was mellon collie. sadly, i had never listined to them until 2002, a year after they had broken up. Any way, The pumpkins rock. Mellon collie and the infinite sadness is the best. Album. Ever. EVER!
And, i think it was a good thing they broke up. not because the music was getting any worse, but they were past their prime. the 90's were their decade. if they had gone into the milennium, the music would have gone stale. best quit while you're ahead.

Siamese Dream is definately the best rock record of all time (only OK Computer comes close). And Billy has got to be the most underrated Songwriter/Guitarist ever. He was easily a way better songwriter than Cobain. And I envy that girl who got to see them live. Lets all keep our fingers crossed for a reunion.

The Smashing Pumpkins are/were AMAZING, the only 2 bands beat them Radiohead and Nirvana. I just love '1979' also I think 'Zero' is one of the best songs of the 90's. There are 2 album's that beat Mellon collie 'OK Computer' and 'The Bends'.
BUT THE PUMPKINS WILL BE REMEMBER FOR EVER.

Pumpkins= best band on earth
Billy Corgan= best lyricist on earth
Jimmy Chamberlin= coolest drummer on earth
D'arcy/Melissa= best looking bassists on earth
James Iha= has coolest dog on earth + he is a great guitarist

Is it just me or did anyone think Billy's voice went more whiney after the Siamese Dream album?
Anyway the first album I got from them was Mellon Collie and I loved it. For those who don't like it, I don't think it's an album you will like if you've never felt angry/depressed/suppressed in the first place. But there is hope with songs like "Take me down" (to the underground... there's a sun it will come...) at the end. In an interview Billy said that there were two things in the world. Love and Not Love. He also said that when they first started out, they believed their direction in rock was the sound of the future and they were right.
Other songs of note that I like are Rhinoceros, Disarm and Landslide.
Unfortunately they went downhill after Mellon Collie. So many bands when they hit superstardom seem to go this way which is a shame. Why is this so?

You are the sun and moon and stars are you.
That should be the clue for all of those who are on the maze (nobody).
Going to Waverly Station, you spot an old friend from your former school. You try to avoid his gaze, but as per usual, you fail absolutly miserably. He waves you over to the other side of the station, and of course you feel obliged to follow his cheery smile.
Barging through clumps of people you discover that there is a massive hole between you and your friend, and that the ground before you is crumbling away at a phenomenal rate.
Suddenly you are forced to plummit into this hole, never to return. What would be your biggest regret?

The Smashiing Pumpkins, were great. I wish Billy didn't go all happy. I loved their depressing stuff. I love Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness album, it's one of their best albums. But Siamese Dreams, from what I can remember of it - I last heard it in full in 2000/1999, is the best. Disarm, Cherub Rock and Today (the only ones I can really remember) are three of my all time favourites, with Disarm possibly being my favourite.

I first heard the pumpkins when i was about 7, had no idea who they were but I loved them, the song was adore and then they disappeared (well they didn't, I just didn't know where to look) and then about a year before they broke up I found them again. My first album was adore which I loved, but I think Mellon Collie has to be my favourite. I was so dissapointed when they broke up cause I'd queued up to get a ticket for their last concert in ireland but they'd sold out.
Does anyone know if the rumours of James Iha's album is true? and has anyone read Billy Corgan's book of poems yet?

Machine is clearly the best album coz it has such fantastic songs - even better than the norm...
>>By Sk8a H8a (Wednesday, 23 Feb 2005 20:40)
No way, that was their worst album by far. They were just trying to hard with that one.
Siamese Dream & Mellon Collie are my favorites, but lets face it, aside from their last album, everything the Pumpkins touched was genius.
>>By Stinkfist (Thursday, 24 Feb 2005 17:44)
deffinately! though their solo careers are nothing compared to them together. Zwan was good but was really just a carbon copy smashing pumpkins
>>By future ruler of the world (Wednesday, 9 Mar 2005 12:11)
The Pumpkins were amazing....life changing, but a word of advice, never listen to the song Shame, if you are feeling lonely, it will destroy you....
>>By pinkfluffybrickmeister (Wednesday, 9 Mar 2005 12:46)
It's not depressing at all! honestly how can people find music depressing?
>>By future ruler of the world (Monday, 14 Mar 2005 17:04)
It's supposed to be emotive
>>By Bitch Fit (Monday, 14 Mar 2005 20:23)
Yeah but not depressing.... maybe I'm dead inside =)
>>By future ruler of the world (Tuesday, 15 Mar 2005 11:56)
aaah not likely, oliver would eat u if you were, but it can really depress people, which is good cos it shows how the pumpkin could relate....
>>By pinkfluffybrickmeister (Sunday, 20 Mar 2005 02:14)
I think music can be depressing, in that if you can really relate to some of the lyrics, it may remind you of something that makes you sad. If the song has a mournful tune to it as well, then that doesnt help. It's still only music though, and you shouldnt let it get you down, no matter how much you relate to it. And you're not dead inside Future Ruler of the World
>>By masterofinsanity (Monday, 25 Apr 2005 12:36)
I think instead of depressing music can be touching for instance the song' For Martha', the most interesting songs come from feelings of sadness and unhappiness as a way of comfort
