Try watching him in Die Hard 2.

Everything from Gish through Machina 2 is solid Gold. M2 is especially stunning, I'm listening to it right now. It's funny that it was never released officially.

I would rank the albums in this order:

1. Siamese Dream
2. Mellon Collie and The Infinite Sadness
3. Adore
4. Machina 2
5. Machina 1
6. Gish

I have the newer stuff, but I don't really consider that the Smashing Pumpkins.

Huh, must have missed this thread the first time through. I even have a vague idea of what the title is referencing.

Anyway, pretty good band, particularly in small doses (ironically, the one time I listened to Mellon Collie in one sitting, I liked most everything on it, but I don't think I listened to SP again for months). Corgan is a tool and an egotist with bad taste in his own music, but he occasionally justifies it.

Best hit: 1979
Most underrated: Luna. Fucking gorgeous song.

The video for 1979 is simultaneously a trainwreck and one of my favorite things ever. It represents all of the worst music video cliches the 90s had to offer, right down to heavily color-saturated trips through it-couldn't-possibly-be-greener-anywhere fields, as well as the worst adolescent cliches, such as that old standby: convenience store slacking. That being said, I was kinda there, at least to watch crappy videos that sought to represent it, so that just makes this all the more nostalgic for me:
