I’ll just go ahead and do a giant original-run Smashing Pumpkins one. I think the Machinas are the only ones I have a definitive answer for.

#11

good to see people like their openers as much as me


#12

Teeth Like God’s Shoeshine is probably the best album opener ever written.


#13

Some early voting surprises that caught me completely off guard:

  • Storm leading Lift Yr Skinny Fists
  • Rhinoceros completely dominating Gish
  • A song other than Hummer or Mayonaise leading Siamese Dream
  • Stand Inside Your Love completely dominating Machina

#14

I think Rhinoceros is my fav Pumpkins one overall.


#15

eh, i don’t even like Smashing Pumpkins really but Cherub Rock is an obvious choon


#16

thought i’d be picking No Lucifer here but got a massive urge to listen to Down on the Ground just from reading the poll so it’s won for now.


#17

Hummer has the most lush outro


#18

Their openers make for a very decent intro playlist to the band tbh, could do a lot worse than these 6:

Dramamine - Teeth - Math Equation - 3rd Planet - World at Large - March into the Sea
