The most innovative band of the 90's

Smashing Pumpkins.

Hands down. Look at what we got from them in the ten years of their existence:

Gish - 1991
Siamese Dream - 1993
Pisces Iscariot - 1994
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness - 1995
Adore - 1998
Machina/The Machines of God - 2000
Machina 2/Friends and Enemies of Modern Music (unreleased. Well, except for 25 copies )
Greatest Hits w/ Judas O - 2001

Every album is different from the one before and gives its listeners something new and exciting. Their music is both dark and uplifting, and both angry and calm. Unbelievable. They still blow me away everytime I rediscover an older album or a bside long since listened too.
I am not going to sit here and review each album, because frankly I suck at it. You will either agree with me that YES, Smashing Pumpkins were indeed the most innovative band of the 90's or you won't. If you disagree, I want to hear why, and who you feel deserves the honour, and if you say Radiohead, make your argument long and detailed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And for fun: Which Smashing Pumpkins album are you? http://www.pumpkinheads.net/test2/

You are The Smashing Pumpkins album Gish!

t go around expressing your opinions to others,
and it's not like they mind it either. It doesn't matter to
you though. Who needs them. You've got your red pearls.
Oh shit, that blond-haired chick went and glued them to a
piece of cardboard that is supposed to eventually be your
album cover. Aww man, what's next? Is someone gonna
have to play her instrument too?


... and lastly, for Bear:

i'm not really sure who i'd argue for as the most influential band of the 90s. i'm no good at seperating "most influential" and "favourite". and whatever i argue for i could easily argue against five minutes later. i'd have to make a list in no particular order. the pumpkins would on that list, but they wouldn't be alone.

Not Influential. That brings on a whole new meaning. Innovative. You don't have to be influential to be innovative.

"Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins."
"Homer Simpson, smiling politely."

the pumpkins will always be one of my favorite bands. billy corgan is my hero.



You are The Smashing Pumpkins album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness!

You've got a lot to say, and you'll talk until it's all out, and for
some reason, no one tries to shut you up. I guess you actually
make sense most of the time. Almost everyone likes you, and
it's not just because you're cheap. Haha. Cheap as in thrifty, of
course. You get a bit depressed now and then, but who doesn't?
You seem to have a little anger built up inside, but who doesn't?
You like to stare at people through their bedroom window while
they're changing, but who doesn't? You sick bastard.

ya, id have to say the pumpkins.

radiohead would be up there too, IF they had also released kid a in that decade. ok computer isnt enough to warrant such high acclaim.

good choice angel, and THANK YOU for the picture. :winl:

i scared myself last night, as i realized at long last, that i have become truly obsessed with her.

As much as most people would say Nirvana, I definitely wouldnt. In my opinion Nirvana was obviously on the downward spiral musically, and I truthfully doubt whether or not they would have really remained on the scene if Kurt wouldnt have taken his own life.

I have a hard time with the influential thing, but I'd probably go with Radiohead. The Bends and Ok Computer really paved the way for most all of the truthfully "alternative" music you hear these days. I sure would hate the music scene without Radiohead.
