The 90's were phenomenal circumstances. I consider them "massively popular" in the era of anti-rock, given all their accolades. Manson (the only other "band" that I can think of to be comparable, i.e "reunion" around the same time 2004, only original member left, etc) had a commercially viable album that only shifted 10,000 units. The Pumpkins album sold five times that. I would classify Manson as being a popular rock group, thus saying the Pumpkins were a massively popular rock group during those years. They're a first (or second) billed band for a reason.

During the Mike Byrne era, Billy refereed to Mike as Samurai Mike for some reason. He (Mike) also started wearing a Japanese Rising Sun headband (later changing it to represent the foreign markets like Italy, etc). Billy also started to dress in a Chinese tunics during this time frame.

2010-2013 Pumpkins were neither massively popular nor pathetically scraping by. They were a very serviceable rock act with a legacy - just like they are now and just like they were in 2007/2008. They got PLENTY of coverage for Oceania and the Teargarden shit. They also got on a bunch of festivals and could fill theaters with that lineup. It just wasn’t a cultural phenomenon like “Harlem shake” or whatever stupid shit was big back then.

If Billy does stuff under the Pumpkins name, it will get attention and make him money.

haha the Karate Kid tie in was the crux of the joke. Byrne was the young inexperienced student and Billy was his sensei
