Default Trent Reznor: Billy Sucks

Reznor told NME.COM:

Quote:
"I was never a big Smashing Pumpkins fan back when they were the Pumpkins, not to shit on Billy (Corgan) or anything but I don't hear anything that would make me want to care.

"I think trying to resurrect the name Smashing Pumpkins .........its all a bit corporate for me."

it's a valid opinion. i recognize that trent is talented, but i rarely rarely ever hear the guy do anything that makes me care. I thought year zero was horrible.

And say... how come you guys are such assholes to new guys like me?

Hey.

Trent hasn't brought out anything interesting since The Fragile. He is just jealous that Courtney returns Billy's calls.

Trent's really done nothing that great since Broken. So he really doesn't have room to talk. The two newest records were just boring and him all buffed out looks weird.

Is this a competition?

Trent hasn't done anything interesting since 1989!! Infact neither has Billy. Bring back the Marked.

i agree with trent about the revival being commercial, but he's only got the hump cause he can't write music quite as good or as interesting as billy's.

Trent is short and chubby. Billy is tall and slim. I bet El Trent is just being jealous.

He is sore because NIN had 7 years to make up the gap, and they are still only as good as an SP support band.

This is going to be totally forgotten in this thread. Trent is all about heart on your sleeve lyricism. And billy is all about having so much poetic flourish that sometimes you wonder if thats all there is.

We've covered the corporate tinge to SP2 to death as well.

So try not to embarass yourselves noobs.

By the way, fantastic avatar ???. I've been looking to buy that game for like eight years. I may have missed it more than the Pumpkins.

Of course, both went through their rough patches.

meh. i like both trent and billy, but don't put too much stock into either opinion. I have my own, which is all that really makes any difference to me. I'm sure bill will now retaliate with some immature jab at trent. reminds me of the old billy vs gavin days.

he's not chubby, but that trent is short... met him at a bar down in new orleans, wasn't much bigger than me (and i'm only 5' 3"). A nice enough fellow though. He lived a block away from a friend of mine, and my friend used to run into him at the local k&b fairly often, said he was top notch. I'm not too bothered by his opinion of SP, plenty of people I love dearly can't stand SP.

i agree... but the best part about it is the things he's accusing corgan of fit him perfectly as well. he has a new band every album, so NIN is basically just a name with marketability... just like SP.

don't take this is me getting defensive for someone knocking corgan... cuz if you look back at my posts, i've done plenty of knockin on the dude. and this is also coming from someone who sided with Malkmus during their beef...

But did trent reznor really criticize someone else's music? are you kidding me?? i really find his dark wave/ synth goth to be utterly boring. there's a reason that respected music media outlets around the globe always scratch their heads when people bring up NIN. they suck.

I find your dark wave/synth goth to be utterly boring. So you don't get to have an opinion on music or anything else.

He saying that bringing back the pumpkis is a bit corprate. Its no different than him bringing different musicians to play his music throughout his career. Billy and Jimmy are The Smashing Pumpkins. What a reject trent is...

It is different. How many times did billy say the smashing pumpkins are billy, jimmy, james and d'arcy? And how many times has trent said that NIN are a certain bunch of people?

Its ok you dont really have to count, just stop acting like an idiot.
