Hexen may be the greatest thing that Billy Corgan was ever a part of.

HEXEN Song1 1985


I find it comforting to see that all the awkward gawping was there from the beginning and not a later affectation.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

You people have already compelled me to revisit my opinions on Bob Seger and ZZ Top. Now I have to go back and listen to Smashing Pumpkins too?
Oh, good heavens. I didnít realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the OíConnor family.

Not only do I think you should revisit the Pumpkins' music, Grote, I think you and Omar should compete to see if either of you can be the one to finally solve the mysteries of the Machina/Machines of God alternate reality game mystery.
This may be the year I will disappear.

I find about 25 songs from the Pumpkins catalog (Gish through Adore, about 2 songs after that ) to be among the best stuff that came out in the 1990s.  Another 50% of it is very listenable.  It's the last bit, plus the fact that Billy Corgan really can't sing, that turns people all the way off.

I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Wait, what's the mystery, Wes? Corrigan's diagrams couldn't be clearer.



Listening to Siamese Dream and remembering that I listened to it quite a bit in my senior year of college. In my defense, I was very, very high. It does still hold up pretty well.

Also, Kiss! How could I forget that these boards made me revisit Kiss. Though I never really visited them in the first place.
Oh, good heavens. I didnít realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the OíConnor family.

I think Gish holds up very well, better than Siamese Dream. I never really listened to Melln Collie at the time and I'm reluctant to do so now, but who knows what'll happen.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

Bob Seger has some great songs (e.g. Hollywood Nights), but I will never forgive him for "Yellow Beret."

You had an opinion.  Shame on you!

Your board name should be SHIT IN THE PUNCHBOWL.

And I mean that in the nicest possible way.

OR DO I!?

I don't.
