    At least half of 'em anyway...

    Yes, Corgan is a self-absorbed prick, but that doesn't change the fact that Gish and Siamese Dream still hold up. Mellon Collie and Machina a little less so and the less said about Adore, the better. Without D'Arcy and Iha though, it's not really a reunion, it's Corgan and Chamberlain with some stand-ins. Might be good though.

    Congratulations to Billy Corgan, on achieving washed-up cover band status in such a short amount of time.

    Seriously. If his solo album hadn't tanked, this wouldn't be happening.

    I think they should call themselves "Uncle Fester and the Pumpkins" this time around.

    Maybe the new Smashing Pumpkins will open for the new Guns 'n Roses. Then the universe will implode since that much suck should not be allowed in one place.

    I was never too into them but I know they have a lot of fans that'll probably appreciate this, even if it's merit and relevance is questionable

    Most people just go out and get a job when they're broke, not try to reform washed up music groups.
