LISTEN: Smashing Pumpkins — “Rocket” off the Reissued Siamese Dream

Billy Corgan has always contained the mysterious power to pierce deep into ones soul with his disturbingly beautiful lyrics and bawling voice since the beginning of his musical career.

Last month, the Smashing Pumpkins’ 1993 album, Siamese Dream was reissued and remastered containing tons of new extra features. The new reissued addition includes a raw and intimate DVD of live performances and commentary by Corgan, as well as photographs and interviews with the band.

The album is a physical remembrance of the deep and dire impact Smashing Pumpkins has had on the face of rock ‘n’ roll and the American youth culture. The Smashing Pumpkins embodied the angst of a generation, searching and pondering those existential questions pertaining to life, love and growing up.

Their music was and still is a movement that inspires and connects. And influential songs like “Rocket” off of Siamese Dreams represent the dominant yet profound influence of a distinct shift in musical dynamics.

Songs like these can always use a revisiting…so take a LISTEN.
