Billy. Every time. He might not have a degree in postmodernism, miles davis and global branding but man he has the tunes. (or he did)

this is lame, what kind of response would you expect on an SP board.

Lets go to a radiohead board and ask the same question. shya.

I would say Thom Yorke. Innovation, the complex structures of melodies.

But then I would say Billy, because to me he has tenure (BWBW was the first thing I saw on MTV, and introduced me into music.)

Thom: vocals (> high notes), experimental stuff, melancholy, post-modern sickness, Street Spirit

Billy: vocals (> backing, medium notes), rockish stuff, sadness, neverending anger, Bullet With Butterfly Wings

"Dollars and Cents" has the best Thom's vocals. The backing vocals during the "Why don't you quieten down" part just blow me away...

Billy is more talented overall.

Billy Corgan is more talented than Thom Yorke, but Radiohead is more talented than The Smashing Pumpkins.

I think Radiohead sucks. Just because you make a bunch of shitty noise that nobody wants to listen to doesn't mean you are a musical genius.

What are you smoking??? There's not a radiohead album that exists that isn't half crap.

Radiohead definately isn't batting over .500, Corgan's hitting at least .700..............

Actually, I would say about five.

Anyone who thinks Radiohead is a shitty band or just a bunch of noise should open their mind a bit. They're being creative, although, i.am.1.as.u.r.3 must be one creative motherfucker to come up with such a fantastic name.
