Smashing Pumpkins Zeitgeist T-Shirt

 

The Smashing Pumpkins are an an American alternative rock band which formed in 1988, Chicago, Illinois. Formed by James Iha (guitar) and frontman Billy Corgan (lead vocals, guitar), the band included Jimmy Chamberlin (drums) and D'arcy Wretzky (bass guitar) in its original lineup. It has undergone many changes over the course of its existence, with the current lineup including Corgan, rhythm guitarist Jeff Schroeder and Chamberlin.

 

The Pumpkins have a densely layered, diverse, and guitar-heavy sound, containing elements of heavy metal, gothic rock, dream pop, progressive rock, psychedelic 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".
