bodies by the smashing pumpkins

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

The weekend after this album came out I spent an entire afternoon jamming out that riff with friends in a garage, and we were so pissed at the kid playing drums for not being able to "do it like Jimmy."

i get so pissed when the only people i know who like the smashing pumpkins only care about gish and siamese dream

when me and some friends drove to NYC to play a show i made one CD of the singles and one CD that was all machina 2 and disc two of mellon collie

except i think muzzle was on it too

This is a really good one. Favorite MC tune is Muzzle though.

Great tune but I'm more of a "Where Boys Fear To Tread" guy. So much 14-year-old headbanging.

You guys current-day Corgan reads threads like this and surmises that people want him to put together a backing band of nobodies and tour as the Smashing Pumpkins. Let's all just agree that they were the best mainstream band of the 90s and let it rest.

i'm not really interested in what he's doing now but i think he's earned the right to do what he wants

i think it has less to do with the personnel he's employing and more to do with him just getting old and having musical and personal interests that are not wholly compatible with his legacy

and honestly i think an internet message board called "hipinion" is just about the last thing on earth i can imagine him wanting to read at this point in his life - i get the impression that trying to work with hip people who do coke in zwan was a miserable, trying experience for him and since then he appears to hold just about everything in the pfork sphere of influence in utter contempt

releasing a new song on a compilation sold exclusively through guitar center, forming a sky saxon tribute band with dave navarro to play douchey LA clubs, dating jessica simpson, being outspoken about christianity and shit, releasing sitar-laced classic rock ballads with cover art that's like a mixture of tolkien and ed hardy

current-day corgan could not possibly give less of a shit about what people like us think about him

he's out

The Doom II sample in WBFTT felt like such a great of-the-moment thing when the song came out and still gives me a chuckle.

With the exception of the James song, every track on there was my favorite at one point or another. Being one of those Gish/SD people that brooks mentioned, I tend to gravitate toward something like Thru the Eyes of Ruby, which feels like the last song of that particular type that the guy ever wrote.

I ride hard for Beautiful and Cupid de Locke, too.

it's weird to contrast corgan and reznor's 00's career arcs

they're both nerds and they've both always made pretty good use of the internet but at some point one dog went one way and one dog went the other way

the clash are probably better than the smashing pumpkins but i love both bands a lot and don't really trust myself to make a call about which one is better that i will be able to live with long-term

college dropout vs. gish - kanye
late registration vs. siamese dream - tie
graduation vs. mellon collie - pumpkins
808s & heartbreak vs adore - pumpkins
my beautiful dark twisted fantasy vs. machina - kanye

astonishingly similar career arcs

Agreed. Although "Beautiful" sounds like it could've been on Adore, he never really made anything as off-the-cuff as "Cupid de Locke" after this album. "For Martha" is prolly the closest thing he did to "Thru the Eyes of Ruby" afterward but he consciously holds back the bombast on that one so...
