In that case it actually is The Smashing Pumpkins though. Seeing it written as Smashing Pumpkins by music journalists stresses me out.

do you have a citation? in the Simpsons, Corgan himself introduces himself as ‘Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins’. the gag doesn’t work if Homer says ‘Homer Simpson, The Smiling Politely’

Editors…Delays…definitely no the

in any event i like how Smashing Pumpkins subtly changes the meaning/image

edit: it actually makes more sense, who has ever referred to a pumpkin as ‘smashing’?

Corgan has directly stated that ‘Smashing’ is a synonym for ‘Wonderful’ or ‘Marvelous’, hence the The.
