This fucking riff man
The Smashing Pumpkins - Cherub Rock
Corgan is a musical genius
+Andy Dominguez Hatred is easy to get rid of. People just want to be angry. Anger sells music, because people want to know other people are just as pissed off as they are. That is why I don't sell music. I am not angry. My music is free.
siamese dream is their best album, no debating
+Bradley Greenan what's the song called? I haven't really cared for most of the music he's made since Adore. There's the odds song here and there I think is alright, but not great. I'd definitely like to hear this one if it's pretty good for a change.
+Mark Hilston you don't know what you're talking about. Butch Vig is known for overproducing bands. There's a difference between writing songs that are more self indulgent and the music production. The concept idea of Mellon Collie was a grandiose idea, but production wise, it wasn't nearly as overproduced as Siamese Dream. Siamese Dream was mainly just Billy sitting in a room doing guitar overdubs none stop. Even though there are obvious overdubs on many songs on Mellon Collie, most of what you hear is the band playing together. They were recorded live over and over, and just took the best and/or more emotive performances from each isolated instrument. I know a lot about music production, and I have read a lot about the Pumpkins over the past decade. There's also actual footage of Billy and that band talking about how the production of Mellon Collie was nicer, because it was more collaborative, and the focus was more on emotion rather than perfect takes. If you ears can't pickup on the fact that Billy's voice was more naked on Mellon Collie, and that the guitars were stripped down a little to be closer to their live sound, then that's too bad.
tHe sMasHinG pUmPKinS  "Cherub Rock"--Es una canción y sencillo de la banda estadounidense de rock alternativo The Smashing Pumpkins perteneciente al disco Siamese Dream y publicado el 13 de julio de 1993. Existen dos versiones de este single. Esta canción fue nominada a el premio Grammy a la mejor interpretación de hard rock en 1994. "Cherub Rock" fue una de las últimas canciones que se escribieron para el álbum, y la letra habla acerca de la percepción de Corgan acerca de la comunidad de indie rock y los grandes medios.1 La canción es interpretada en afinación estándar con una octava de G sostenido en el 11vo traste, el mismo que es usado por la banda en canciones como "Drown", "Tristessa" y "Starla". El prominente solo de guitarra fue logrado grabando la guitarra en dos pistas distintas, las cuales se hicieron correr simultáneamente, con la velocidad de una ligeramente alterada. Su grabación se caracteriza por contener la técnica del "overdubbing", influenciado por los géneros del shoegazing y el arena rock de los años 70.

Parece q alguém misturo 3 decadas numa música
diria até que de musica pra musica rsrs deve gostar de suruba esse corgan se vc ver o mellon collie la '-' 24 musicas nd haver uma com a outra
Jimmy Chamberlin > Every other drummer from the 90's put together.
Jimmy is definitely better than Danny. Danny Carey can do alternate time signatures and do the "thudathudathudathuda" double bass kick, but Chamberlin was basically John Bonham with a legit Jazz background. Carter Beauford is more technically advanced than either, being the most versitle and has all those fun world-music bells and whistles attached to his giant drum kit. I can't stand Dave Matthews Band to save the life of me, but credit where credit is due.

Cheap Trick Oo la la la
hate that grunge sound! the guitar just overpowers everything else! Oceania is their best album
"hate grunge sound!" ....why are you even here then?
I know that every generation says "the music back then was better" but with rock it's true. If you turn on a pop station 95% of the music you will hear will be from this year,the other 5% stuff from last year. The reason for this is that current pop music is consistently on par or better than what preceded it so there's not room for the old stuff even if the old stuff was also considered good. But turn on a rock station and it's like a third of the music is from the 90's (25-15yrs old), another third is from the 2000's (15-5 yrs old) which indicates that while new rock music is always coming out, the majority is viewed as sub par to what was out before it. While 90's bands will probably get less airplay as time goes on, I'm pretty sure that in 5 years we'll still hear some SP, Nirvana, etc on the radio, but I know we will not be hearing Fun's "We Are Young" or the Lumineers "Ho Hey"
+714Octor Dude, I'm 16. I love rock n roll.
Some of that it more to do with the fall of mainstream radio as opposed to whether music is still good. There were a TRILLION bad bands in "your day," history has just forgotten them. Keep researching guys, lot of great shit out there.
Billy Corgan is sexy af in this video.😉 I like Smashing Pumpkins.
Just rock out to it. Everything eles is redundant.  
The Smashing Pumpkins have a unique sound, not unlike Pearl Jam or any other band for that matter, but "Grundge" as I understand it, is more of a regional claim to fame.........If it weren't for the accolade, I might consider this group as one from the Pacific Northwest, but I would like to think of them as "Hometown Heroes" even though I am from a suburb of Chicago. They have some powerful blends and great lyrics, a sound of their very own. Timeless masterpieces that will rock throughout time and history. Put it this way, "The Smashing Pumpkins" would be great guests from a distant but familiar land to anybody who might consider themselves "Grundge". I say "Consider" because to me it wasn't about the music so much, as it was a label, stereotype, or generational thing, not unlike "The British Invasion". See, all of the people that made it out of that "Scene" we're above all individuals just trying to cut a record label or something. Trying to get their message out there to anyone who would listen. They were far more interesting individually than people might think, I imagine that it was nice to be part of something for most but for the few I am assuming that "Grundge" in and of itself, if it was anything, was kind of the Caboose at the end of the train whence it came through. Not to be outdone by "The Smashing Pumpkins", but they were a great compliment and might have had a little more musicality when considering their range and type of instruments played. I would hate to be a judge at any "Battle of the Bands" with anyone during that time, remember it was a great time for music in general they are all winners. In fact, it takes a lot of courage just to pick up an instrument and try to play or sing for one person let alone 1 Hundred Thousand!!!!!!!
corgan es lo MAXIMOOOO AÑOS SIN ESCUCHARLA naguara estaba entrando ene l liceooooo que epocaa ams buenaaaaaaaaaaaa y ams nirvanaaa y sound garden y alice inchainssssssssssss los 90ssssss lo mejorrr
Typing instigative comments based of personal musical taste < Actually just listening to and enjoying the beautiful music
this is a my bloody valentine video.
The wall of guitar sound in this song just blows my mind. Play loud to get the most benefit from this awesome song. BTW, the lyrics are NOT about the Chicago music scene but about a HONEY, who was righteous & could guide these rockers to ultimate stardom.
I wonder was he such a massive egotistical asshole back then
I'd say he's gotten worse
dunno! he's nothing special! voice ain't that great
who cares which ones better as long as its safe to say that everyone in this comment section listens to good music.
ONE of the first songs that transformed me from 80's kid to 90's teen.  I started loving them Pumpkins and it took off from there....
siamese dream... best album of the 90's best production on an album ever
Always felt a little weird getting a chubby for D'arcy...but just a little.  She was strangely sexy.
This song always gave me trouble on Guitar Hero. OMG that bridge and end! Music wise, it's a very good song. I enjoyed it, but it does have some difficult riffs in it.
Most metal guitarists don't even use this much distortion. It makes this song better.

Dimensiones ocultas del ser, un espejismo que conduce a lo evidente, a lo real. Todo pasa, el tiempo, la felicidad, la tristeza, la ingenuidad, el enamoramiento. El simple hecho de buscar el sentido de la existencia es tan obvio que nadie cae en cuenta de la magnitud de este cuestionamiento, sólo viven por vivir, no saben para qué viven, se van inventando motivos para darle sentido a su respirar diario. ¿Y si todo el sacrificio, todo el trabajo, todo lo que está haciendo para tener una vida mejor resultara al final inútil ya que lo realmente importante se dejó a un lado por las banalidades convencionales y nada enriquecedoras? El sentido de la vida es la conciencia de saber que no tiene sentido, ya, no hay que buscarlo. Disfruta cada instante, siempre es el último.

Ein Cherub ist im Alten Orient und im Alten Testament ein geflügeltes Mischwesen, zumeist mit Tierleib und Menschengesicht.. Rock, BaBy!! ★★★
Fuck me! I've not heard this in ages. I'd forgotten how good it is!
Tried listening to their newer albums and just couldn't.  The new band members suck and it just isn't the same without the original lineup. R.I.P. Smashing Pumpkins

One of my all time favorite jams. The Smashing Pumpkins - Cherub Rock:
Pumpkins > Nirvana (but with talent)
Crazy to remember how young Billy looks in this video, then suddenly feel old. lol Still a kick ass tune all these later. This album still rocks my socks off. 
Billy Corgan + hair = Gerard Way
esta canción me recuerda a mi infancia jugando guitar hero. Grande pumpkins! <3
pumpkins > nirvana
+Ashwin Narayanan I'm sorry but look at how much longer they were around. Curt only had 9 years in the spot light, died at 27 and only had 3 studio albums. He was a genius when it came to music. I do like Alice in Chains and Smashing Pumpkins but they are definitely not better then Nirvana when you really look at what Nirvana accomplished in the band's short career.
+Kelly M Hey Kelly, while I completely agree with what you said, I just wanted to say that it's Kurt and no Curt. :D I never knew that Incesticide wasn't considered as an official album but it's still my favorite.
Hell yea nirvana and ac/dc hell I evan know a hole bunch of bands I hate rap. I'm a rocker dued
dunno if troll or not
By-Tor And The Snow Dog? haha
Billy is a big rush fan. I always though of the song similar to "working man". if you play it on guitar you can feel the similarities. 
I know, he's a huge fan. He was on the "Beyond the Lighted Stage" Documentary like a hundred times hahaha. And yea, you're right about working man. The songs share those octave shapes and chords.
glad i could make you laugh :D 
+pEf Alien probably it's D'Arcy wrote as a Kailoone)))
"Freak out And give in Doesn't matter what you believe in Stay cool And be somebody's fool this year 'cause they know Who is righteous, what is bold So I'm told Who wants honey As long as there's some money Who wants that honey?"
