    I became obsessed with the Pumpkins

    when I was 15. A friend of mine suggested them to me. He was older and had turned me onto some cool bands before, so I thought I'd give them a listen. Next time I was at the CD store, I found Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness on sale for $9. I bought it, took it home and...

    Zero

    I like a lot of bands. Sometimes, I don't really care for a band except for a single song they've done. It's very rare when I like pretty much every song a band has done. One of those bands is Smashing Pumpkins. I can't name a song I don't like. I can name a favorite though...

    They were my first favorite band, and still are my favorite band.

    I'm 15, I can honestly say I've never had a "Favorite" band. But around 3 years ago, I heard Bullet With Butterfly Wings on the radio (I know die-hard fans don't like to hear that but it's the truth), I fell instantly in love. I have to say Siamese Dream is my...

    Pumpkins Forever

    I've been a huge fan of the Pumpkins for years.  Seriously the best band of the 90s.

    I'm listening to them right now.

    It's safe to say that they are my favorite band. I can't think of a song by them that I don't like...

    When I Was Little

    My mom basically raised me with the Smashing Pumpkins. When I was 5 or 6, we were at a mall, walking around a store, when one of their songs came on... After hearing it for a few seconds, I looked at my mom, and said "It's the Smashing Pumpkins!"  The sales...

    1979

    Shakedown 1979, cool kids never have the time On a live wire right up off the street You and I should meet Junebug skipping like a stone With the headlights pointed at the dawn We were sure we'd never see an end to it all And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues...

    Great Band

    I have seen Smashing Pumpkins twice in concert and Zwan once. I think I like the dichotomy in the music of dark and happy. Some songs are very dark and depressing and others are so upbeat and happy. I like that they don't pigeon-hole themselves into one "mood...

    Lyrics Are So Genuine

    It's really difficult to find modern rock bands that have such incredible and above all, *genuine* lyrics. Billy Corgan is a true Pisces man, who writes beautiful, bittersweet and dare I say, even romantic lyrics. The Smashing Pumpkins' sound is one of the most unique I've ever...

    How I Got Into The Pumpkins (it's Long)

    One of the first things that people are probably going to think about me when I say that I'm only 14 years old and only in eighth grade is "how could he know and love the pumpkins when he wasn't even around for their most popular days?!" Well all this is true, I have missed the...
