Smashing Pumpkins

 The Smashing Pumpkins are an American alternative rock band from Chicago, Illinois, created in 1988. Formed by frontman Billy Corgan and James Iha, the band has included Jimmy Chamberlin, D'arcy Wretzky, Melissa Auf der Maur, and currently includes Nicole Fiorentino, and Jeff Schroeder among its membership.

Disavowing the punk rock roots of many of their alt-rock contemporaries, the Pumpkins have a diverse, densely layered, and guitar-heavy sound, containing elements of gothic rock, heavy metal, dream pop, psychedelic rock, progressive rock, shoegazing, and electronica in later recordings. Corgan is the group's primary songwriter—his grand musical ambitions and cathartic lyrics have shaped the band's albums and songs, which have been described as "anguished, bruised reports from Billy Corgan's nightmare-land".

The Smashing Pumpkins broke into the musical mainstream with their second album, 1993's Siamese Dream. The group built its audience with extensive touring and their 1995 follow-up, the double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart.
