If you have never watched the video or would care to admit that it has been some time since you have, I would highly recommend you take a few minutes out of your day to watch it. I heard it on the radio this morning on my way to work and I have to admit playing it at an ungodly high volume and screaming the words at the top of my lungs. The Pumpkins rock. The End.

Ode to The Pumpkins
I was twelve in 1995 when The Smashing Pumpkins released Mellon Collie and The Infinite Sadness. My brother had the set and we played it over and over in his room. It was so much more than my 7th grade brain could handle but I loved every second of it. I remember at the time watching the Tonight, Tonight music video on MTV and thinking it was the coolest thing I ever saw, and I have to say that I think it is still my all time favorite music video. I would also like to include that The Smashing Pumpkins is probably at the very top of my list of favorite bands of all time. The song and video was rad then and it is completely rad now.
