I can most definitely help keep this thread going, would love to see what everyone has to share!
There are thousands of brilliant performances by The Smashing Pumpkins that I could post, but here’s a high quality, accessible, enjoyable classic that also shows how likable they were.
And I have to post one of the extended Thru the Eyes of Ruby they were doing on the Mellon Collie tour:
And of course this version of Fuck You from the final show since it’s a classic:
The tuned down version of Zero they were doing on the Machina tour was probably the highlight of any show I’d been to. I love it whenever he screams the final verse of a song.
A few great QOTSA ones. Wish I had gotten to see them live.
Song for the Dead (with Dave Grohl on the drums)
The Fun Machine Took a Shit and Died
Such an exciting band at this time.
Amazing live cover by The Afghan Whigs:
Another personal fav
I like this for the setting:
I like this for the Scots:
I like this for the ridiculously good vocals:
