Top Ten Best Smashing Pumpkins Songs


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Quiet

That incredible solo! That riff! The screaming vocals live! It made me pick up the guitar back in the days and made me a definite Pumpkins fan. One of their best, albeit on their out-of-this world album Siamese Dream, it ain't easy to call it their absolute best. If you love this, check out the Vieuphoria live video on YouTube of Quiet!

You gotta love that bass. Best Pumpkins song ever!

82 Tales of a Scorched Earth

Wut? No one has added this song to this list yet? How can this be? THis is like the Pumpkins' most hardcore song ever. Silly foolish people not voting for the most hardcore Pumpkins song ever.

83 Age of Innocence

Easily the best Smashing Pumpkins song and criminally underrated, this song is extremely impactful and served as a fantastic end to what was intended to be the end of their career, much more gripping than the rest of the songs in my view, fantastic instrumentation with some good singing and lyricism to boot.

I had to ADD THIS SONG! There is no possible way this song isn't even on the list! Hands down one of my favorite Smashing Pumpkins songs, and it's off of the critically-acclaimed Zeitgeist album. Just. Listen. To. It. - SunfireCobra

This song should be in the top ten, the lyrics are so great

87 Oceania

The best song that The Smashing Pumpkins have released in years, their new album is nothing short of amazing and this epic song just oozes classic Pumpkins. Should definitely be top 10 but at least on this list.

88 Where Boys Fear to Tread
89 Bring the Light

This is a good song, not the best, but it needs to be higher.

90 Daydream
91 Violet Rays

Best song of the new album in my opinion.

Awesome some. I have loved pumpkins since the 90s, and this was a nice surprise

92 Pennies

Sad to see this song so low on this list, probably because of its non-album/non-single release. It's a brilliant piece of Beatlesque psychedelia, and a must hear for anyone who appreciates the softer songs of Smashing Pumpkins

93 Daphne Descends

I can't believe this wasn't on the list! This song is a masterpiece, one of their best songs

94 The Chimera

One of the best songs out there!

95 Once Upon a Time

One of those songs that the more you listen to it the more you appreciate its layers. I need to say that at one point in my life many of these songs could be number one on my list of smashing pumpkins songs. Currently this one takes the cake. It's really worth a listen.

My absolute favorite Smashing Pumpkins song. This is from Adore, their most underrated album by far. I absolutely LOVE this album and this song. I love that SP can rock out hard and play soft melodies. They are truly talented. - evoxpisces

After Ava Adore best song on this album. A bit more rocking then other ones on adore. Stand out track

Great song from a very underrated album

97 Untitled

Has no one heard this song? Not a typical Pumpkins song, but this has to be their most beautiful song, along with rhinoceros. An AMAZING solo in the end, which for me is a classic example of a mixolydian melody. The guitar literally weeps and wails, and the drums, as usual, are amazing.
