Classic pumpkins question... in an interview, Billy said he pronounced it, phonetically here, " MeeLAYYY - Do-REEEEE". And " Mah - GIPee".

Easy mispronounced quite often by a lot of newbies and untroo fans.

Happy to help, pal!

i've always said MEL-ADDER-EE as well (or would it be M'LADDOR-EE?)

I've heard "mella-dory" once but am pretty sure it was a joke.

Billy pronounced Oceania - Oh-say-ana

Fuck that, it's Oh-she-ana.

And Machina is 100% Machine-uh, not Makina. Silly ass Corgan.

Billy Corgan pronounces it mah-SHEE-nah.

only Latin speakers and English undergrads would pronounce it mah-KEE-nah
