Currently, Freak is listed at 31 on the Alternative Songs Billboards and 42 on Rock Songs Billboards (Smashing Pumpkins Music News & Info | Billboard.com (http://www.billboard.com/artist/smashing-pumpkins/5700#/artist/smashing-pumpkins/5700)). More interestingly, it peaked at 27 which is higher than Tonight, Tonight (36), Thirty-three (39), and Ava Adore (42) and has been on the charts for 11 weeks which is longer than Perfect (6 weeks), Tarantula (2 weeks), and Doomsday Clock (1 week) (Smashing Pumpkins Album & Song Chart History | Billboard.com (http://www.billboard.com/artist/smashing-pumpkins/chart-history/5700#/artist/smashing-pumpkins/chart-history/5700)). Yes, the Billboard rankings must be taken in context, but regardless I was surprised at these statistics.

they also play the fucking black eyed peas on the radio and they don't even use instruments and write insipid lyrics

I'm not sure why but those charts are totally wrong.

Tarantula & Doomsday Clock were on there for several weeks.

1979 was #1 Modern Rock & #10 Top 40 and that shows it only as high as #12.

Maybe they're taking into account digital downloads, and the very nature of the release of Freak would disrupt the rankings (just as Glee has done)? I don't know...

Or maybe Billy discoverd the joys of payola.

The Smashing Pumpkins have not been played on a radio since 1998. Scam.

That's wildly inaccurate and not even remotely funny.

You lose.

You seem to know a lot about this news that has blinded me from hearing the pumpkins on the radio. Tell me more.

Follow Billy on Twitter. He'll tell you everything. In fact there's another thread about it. The oil barons and techno-lords who control the world economy want you to believe that SP continues to have radio airplay. Lies. Scam.

The writers needed to focus on ruining the ending!!! :dammit::dammit:
Or they were trying to hint that if you get knocked up by your best friend's husband's father...your inner circle tends to abandon you.
