You guys, do remember this video being so next level when it came out?

[…]

Like, was it sad for you guys who Believed in the Pumpkins watch them immolerate themselves the way they did. Is it just accepted that Billy C is a douchey?

Was this like Gaga 4 U? I’m not being sarcastic!

I’m pretty sure you’re trolling. But whatever.

  1. No one over the age of 14 “Believed” with a capital B in the Pumpkins
  2. Corgan is mad douchey and it’s always been that way. People who were in college at the time told me the band would routinely get in (verbal) fights on stage from day one. The inevitable self-immolation was part of the appeal.
  3. This video was pretty much like every other alt rock video at the time. That said, seeing it was better than Lady Gaga because nowadays, you can go to YouTube and watch that shit at will. Back in the day you had to sit through at least TLC videos to get one of these—you had to earn it.
