    He's right. Nirvana is okay, but overrated as hell. Pumpkins destroy just about every other 90's popular rock band, including nirvana.

    dunno if i'd say nirvana was overrated, but pumpkins was definitely underrated. The only thing that's kinda annoying is they have good songs interspersed with bad ones, so I can't just put their album in and listen, I gotta steady skip around

    Its an accepted fact that he is a total dick. He right though. Anyway, I went to see him a couple of years ago and near the start of the show someone yelled "1979". Billy got all pissed off and told the crowd "im not here to play songs you got laid too in high school". The guy is a total egomanic

    Billy corgan did an un-announced surprise solo show at a coffee shop in my hometown a year or two ago. I got a text from my friend and by the time I got there it was too packed to get in, was so bummed.

    He is, everyone knows it. He sued Collective Soul over their song "Shine" claiming it sounded too much like "Snail"(They really don't sound too similar), but Ed Roland was able to prove that the song was written prior to Snail's release. Later, Ed Roland wrote the song "Smashing Young Man", a song about Billy Corgan (clearly a diss).

    x2 for sure, I was lucky to have a brother who was in highschool during the 90s so I got a lot of exposure to the grunge scene from an early age, but man I would have loved to see them in concert.

    QUICKSAND - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quicksand_%28band%29

    Some of my friends and easily one of the best bands to come out of the 90's. They just had 2 reunion shows this past weekend.

    I love this thread, this brings back memories and old songs I enjoy listening when I was a kid. I like slipknot, POD, system of a down.

    Why is it when a band is great someone always calls them overrated. If they weren't as good as people claim they wouldn't have changed music and killed that 80's hair metal ********.
    I do believe alot of people thought Soundgarden was going to be the first band from the Seattle scene to really break through. Nirvana did it, they deserve the credit, more kids listen to Nevermind and want to start a band than they do listening to the Smashing Pumpkins. That's a fact.
    I certainly would've never picked up a guitar if it weren't for Smells Like Teen Spirit.

    I think they just kicked the door down that a lot of other bands were breaking the hinges of in years prior. I think what may bother people with that song in particular, is it became the calling for a lot of people who would have just as well listened to Bush, who came out afterward with their clone song not too long later.

    In the early 90's, I was friendly with the owner of The Beat, a small club in Port Chester, NY. One night my friends and I stumbled in to have some drinks and watch some live music, and as it turned out the band that night was Smashing Pumpkins. I got to watch them play their set from about 10 feet away....lol, on a barstool. Tremendous night.

    However, for me...the song of the 90's was Bone Machine by the Pixies.
