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
You youngsters should check out the Eels- very underrated band
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.

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.
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.
"Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace."-Bill Hicks
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.
