I like their music, but i think Billy Corgan has a horrible voice. Everyone usually disagrees w/ me, but seriously - the guy can't sing...

I like billy corgans fucked up voice! on the album b-sides and rarities, you have some very amazing songs like Lucky13, marquis in spades, my mistake and heres to the atom bomb. Well Smashing pumpkins generally rock id say.

Yep Smashing Pumpkins are really good, Sucks they broke up. That new band Corgan is in (Zwan) isnt good. Favorite pumpkins music is 1979, Zero, Bullets with Butter Fly Wings, Today, and Disarm. There are others but I forgot their names.

Billy Corgan is one of the grandest assholes to walk the earth and he's at the top of his game, again.

his game is over. he disbanded smashing pumpkins because he said they cant beat the pop artists of the world. now he has this zwan band just trying to be in the scene again. he gave up before and now trying to get back. he should never disbanded the band in the first place. they had a huge following. now i doubt it if zwan will make any better.

I'm a basic recap of all the previous comments. Loved smashing Pumpkins. Zwan dissapoints. Bullet w/ butterfly wings is awesome! The world really is a vampire...

damn right! zwan is a disappointment. did you see their video? i dont remember the title. did you see billy corgan with his band mates walking and singing? what a loser.

he's a big name but it will not make zwan do better.

I like messed up voices, i think they give bands a sort of character, White Stripes- can't sing but gives it it's ort of signature, Early november- adorable speech impetement ^-^ and smashing pumpkins, so whiney it's good.

Yeah, no kid. Strutting away, I'd like to destroy all the zwan members now. *sigh* Also. Messed up voices: GOOD! I can't get enough of Jonathan Davis's voice. Yummy korn voice messy goodness....

definatly shouldn't have disbanded. stupid move to break apart a kickass band and join a weak one that will go no where. the pumpkins should reform.

I've got a strange feeling, they gonna miss each other... and Billy's gonna re form even if the whole band doens't agree... They'll form but maybe not the same way the original was!!!

I can't wait to see what happens... doesn't someone have a time machine?
