I just started listening to "Siamese Dream" and I love Cherub Rock, Today, Disarm, and Mayonaise. I know they broke up but they're going to reunite minus Iha and D'arcy. Any thoughts

I don't really care about Darcy, but they need James.

yeah one of the best bands of the 90s. Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness are great albums. I Hope they get their **** together and go on tour.
I felt like a monster reincarnation of Horatio Alger......a man on the move and just sick enough to be totally confident.

I love the Pumpkins, but James Iha is neccessary for a TRUE reunion, in my opinion.

Yeah, I think D'arcy is pretty much gone for good, now that she can't leave the country. James however, needs to get on board though.

I liked a couple of their early songs, but aside from that, I didn't like the Pumpkins.

So what equirment did Billy Corgan used when he was in samshing pumpkins?
I know he used Fender Strat as his main guitar but a part form that I know very little about it.

If Billy Corgan and Gavin Rosdale made an album together that'd be sweet.

Smashing Pumpkins are definitely my favourite band of all time. Mellon Collie... and Siamese Dream are two of my favourite albums ever.

However I'm not too hot on this whole reunion thing, especially if James isn't going to be a part of the band. He co-wrote some of their best songs! Soma, Mayonaise and I Am One. D'Arcy I'm not as fussed about as at least it'd be Melissa filling in for her although in an ideal world D'Arcy would be there.

New record? I await with trepidation.

I love every track on Siamese Dream, one of the best albums of the 90's if you ask me.

Chamberlin is perhaps my favourite drummer ever, I'd be kidding myself if I said he was the best, but his drumming fit the songs so well that it set them apart from the rest of the songs in the grunge movement.

A reunion would be orgasic, but I'd be very disappointed if James didnt come back. They NEED him.

I love Saimese Dream. I cant find one single flaw, and it is quite possibly the perfect album.

My fave Pumpkins songs at the mo are BWBW, Geek USA, Cherub Rock, I Am One and The Everlasting Gaze.

AWA, that is the coolest avatar I have ever seen.

Oh, and their cover of Landslide. It actually makes me cry sometimes, and I don't usually cry over songs.

Landslide was actually listed in a book of the most depressing songs ever, apparently cos they thought Billy didn't sing it like it was supposed to be sung.

Am I the only one who thinks that "Machina" is their best record?
Hey, I mean with songs like "Try, Try, Try", "Heavy Metal Machine", "The Everlasting Gaze" and last but not least, one of my all time favorite songs, "This time"!

Cheers! I hope they come touring in Sweden!

Hrrmm, someone mentioned 33 as one of their favorite songs...
It that the title of a Coheed and Cambria song too?

Anyways, noone mentioned 1979
I love the video, and I love the song in general to death.

1979 is definately one of the best songs. I was in to them for a week straight it's all I listened to, then dropped offf a bit but the last day has been all Pumpkins again. Fantastic band.

What's everyone's fave song off the second disk of Mellon Collie?
Mine are probably Thirty-Three and Where Boys Fear To Tread.

Is Lily (My One and Only) supposed to be about a deranged stalker, or am I interpreting it wrong?

^I think Billy wrote it about his cat.

I don't rate the second disc of Mellon Collie half as much as the first. 1979 is the stand out track from it, but I also really like Stumbleine and Thru The Eyes of Ruby. Beautiful is cool too.
