Influenced By:
The Cure and New Order

Name Origin:
In an article in the Washington Post in 1993 D'arcy said:
"The name of the band is a stupid name, a dumb bad joke, and a bad idea. Okay? Bill [Corgan] named the band even before there was a band. He was like, 'I'm going to have a band and it's going to be called this.' Smashing is not a verb, it's an adjective. It's not like we like to smash pumpkins or anything. And we are not amused by pumpkin jokes anymore!"

Smashing Pumpkins Quotes:
"Well, when I was 20 and I met D'arcy, my whole thing was music, music, music, 24-7. And i couldn't understand why D'arcy wasn't music, music, music, 24-7. D'arcy was like, 'I have a @#$%& life. It can't be that way.' "

"Gish was the best representation of where we were at the time."

"I don't want to achieve the distance of a rock band that's too cool for you to deal with or too whacked out for you to relate to -- but the exact opposite... I want our music to come across like someone whispering into your ear and going right inside your brain. Instead of letting the sound go from our mouths and our hands through a thousand rock pretenses and Spinal Tap-isms, I want it to be like we're right in front of you. That's the kind of intimacy and trust I'd like the band to achieve."

"It seems to me that references to bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin meant more to me a year ago and all those old things are totally losing importance."

"You give me a @#$%& kazoo and I'll write you a good song."

"Music is 99% of my life. But I know I need a break. Besides, if you give people too much, they start to not want it. We need to restrain ourselves."

"About six months ago, I listened to Siamese Dream. That was the first time I'd ever really heard my own album, because I had separated from the experience of making the record. And it really moved me. It made me cry, it's so beautiful."
