They seem good. I haven't heard a whole lot by them, but I've loved what I've heard. I never heard they were getting back together. Maybe I'll check out some of their new stuff.

ugh

this disgusts me how everyone is focused on their most popular song

*listens to the Geek U.S.A. guitar solo and hopes some one knows what I'm talking about, even if it's on their most popular album*

Billy Corgan does look kinda creepy, but he is a genius

I love the song space boy. gives me chills. But pretty much the whole of Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie are perfect albums. Gish and Adore are great to. Only Machina was a let down.

I have to say, the free and legal thing is pretty awesome. I've only come across one other band that will give you a full album like that, and that wasn't the studio album cut.

Which song would that be? I don't think that people should have to hate a song just because it hit the charts. And if they're the only songs that they like, so what, at least they have some minimal appreciation Laughing .

I was a bit freaked when i found that they had a song called "Hello Kitty Kat", mainly because thats what my friend says every time she sees me. It's like they're... talking to me, or something... Shifty

I seriously doubt that they'd be getting back together, there have been rumours like that for ages.

everyone says, "I love Smashing Pumpkins, I love Bullet With Butterfly Wings"

dude, if that's the case just say, "I only know Bullet With Butterfly Wings, but I like it"
it's a good song and one of D'arcy's best basslines, but don't say you love a band because you like a song
that's like saying you like Radiohead when all you know is Creep and O.K. Computer

I seriously doubt D'arcy Wretzky will recommit
they planned it, then things got messed up again....but Zwan didn't take off and Billy Corgan's solo career certainly didn't take off

Melissa was good with Hole...but there's no replacing D'arcy

Of course. Last I heard, Billy hadn't spoken to neither her nor James for 6 years. I don't know if that's changed, though.

I wouldn't call Bullet With Butterfly Wings their most popular, i think it'd probably be Today or 1979.

But yeah, i agree. But alot of people think that they're gonna get attacked if they dont know everything about a band/ like all they're songs, and they're probably right.

James was in Zwan, they're still cool
it's D'arcy and the rest of the band....especially James
she was going to be in A Perfect Circle until they got James, then she quit

i love the smashing pumpkins!!! they're definatley one of my favorite bands ever.

as far as the reunion goes, i dont really care if the whole original line up is there or not. i mean, what do you think would have a better outcome: the original line up of people who dont all get along, or a couple orginals with some other people who they do get along with and could work better and more happily with? besides, i'm sure they know what'll work better than we do, so i really see know point in all of us whinying about d'arcy and james being in the band, when we dont have any control over it at all.

not that it wouldn't be awesome to see the whole original line up again, or even billy, james, melissa, and jimmy, but, whatever happens happens.

i just hope they go on tour after they release the new album Very Happy

haha, well, honestly, i dont know much about the band other than their music and a little tiny bit here and there, so yeah.

you never know though. they could reunite with the whole original lineup and downright suck, or they could be wodnerful again. or they could have a slightly different lineup and be great too. we'll never know until we hear it, really.

but hey, it's their thing, i say let them do what they want. we're just the listeners, if we dont like it, then we dont have to listen to it.
