A very good alt-Rock band of the late 80's and early/late 90's. Fronted by Billy Corgan who did vocals,James Iha played guitar, D'arcy Wretzky played bass, and Jimmy Chamberlin played drums. It has been a rumor that ever since the group started the band has had tension between them, musically or personally, nobody really knows. And how they lasted for as long as they had is unknown as well. But they are a band that had left an influence on Rock. they touched upon arena Rock that had never been fully touched upon in the 70's. Most people just like their early albums such as Gish,Siamese Dream and Mellon-Collie and the Infinite Saddness. I love these albums but I think their later efforts such as Adore and Machina are very good and complex albums even though they didnt stay true to their original sound. It just proves that the Smashing Pumpkins are a very talented band and can manipulate any genre of rock music. Billy Corgan has one of the most unique voices in Rock and his influence in the smashing pumpkins will be missed.
Also, BILLY CORGAN KILLER ILL KILL YOU DONT DISS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BANDS.
