Bad music is just bad. People have lost their damn minds in 2020.

yeah so many people are using the "i guess you guys don't like Depeche Mode or The Cure!" or "it's like TFE & Adore" defenses but i like all those things & still thinks this sucks

the unneccesary full-choir female backing vocals are the biggest fuck you, i think. if it was simply Katie Cole doing a single octave or harmony track or even just her singing the lead it would be so much better. as it is it might be the most embarrassing grasp at the charts he's possibly ever done, & the fact that it seems to be getting a largely positive reception is even more baffling

i don't give a fuck if people like it, i just find it dumb & annoying those of us who don't are so constantly given the "do you not like New Order???" treatment when we say it's "stanky"

Most music that is popular on youtube, I hate. So it would be no coincidence that the most liked SP song since Tarantula would be one that I don't like. It's hard to find lots of people that like rock music in the past decade. Yeah there are some exceptions but not many.

How is THIS the most popular post Tarantula SP song?! I’m fucking baffled. It’s so fucking bland. Tiberius? One and All? Tom Tom? The Celestials?

Wtf???

Synth pop sells right now

Just heard it on the alt rock station here which exclusively plays Imagine Dragons and twee folk shit

Good job Corgan, I guess

I do not mind the video, but calling it "lynch-y" seems like an insult to David Lynch.

It is, it’s like Lynch done by an edgy 15 year old teenage girl that wears corsets and Victorian dresses and listens to Joy Division

Someone on reddit said that over the weekend they saw the Cyr video advertised on Grindr, and now apparently the song has blown up in the gay community. That's probably why there are almost 1 million views now.

That makes sense, honestly. I mean it’s 4D chess. When you look at other 90s bands with more relevance in modern day than the Pumpkins, they have like half the views of Cyr and have been out for like 7 months. (STP, for example)

I think the view count has a lot to do with Sumerian records "youtube presence". They have 2 million subscribers, and if you look at their popular videos, there's several videos with viewcounts of 10, 20, 50 million, and I haven't heard of a single fucking one of them. I guess Billy finally figured out what the kids are looking for.

If I was 17 and saw this for the first time I might be somewhat curious WTF this guy is on about and keep digging, idk

I don't mind the new songs. They're not amazing, but if I heard them on the radio I wouldn't change the station. I might even turn up the volume a little.

I can't believe how many of you are stuck in the mindset of their 16 year old selves hoping for a wall of guitars. I have no interest in hearing that anymore except when I go on by bi or triennial nostalgia trip.

Who said anything about wanting a wall of guitars?

That trope is the Fake News of the Smashing Pumpkins fan community. Don't like something SP does? YOU'RE LIVING IN THE PAST.

Billy's not gonna fuck you bro.

i kinda dig it sort of

backing vocals are too loud but otherwise are mostly good...

the "stare down your masters" line is very "don't tread on me" and i don't like it

that bridge though, what the fuck is that about

still probably the most i've liked a song in a while. the chorus is actually pretty good
