* JerkassWoobie: Corgan may be a jerk at times (as attested by throwing {{Pavement}} off a festival bill because their song "Range Life" mocked his indecipherable lyrics, his transphobic insults against custom pedal manufacturer Devi Ever, or his bizarre declaration about wanting to "piss on Radiohead" and constant insults thrown at his former bandmates), but he has had a pretty tragic life, having grown up in a horribly abusive home, spending much of his childhood taking care of his disabled brother, and dealing with severe depression, even contemplating suicide. He may be a control freak and a jerk but he seems to be desperately holding onto the only good thing in his life.

* HarsherInHindsight: Back in 1995, as ''Mellon Collie'' slogged through a long development process, Corgan declared that "it either will be our last album, or it will be our last album as people know the Smashing Pumpkins. While it did not end up being their last album, it was the last album to feature the original lineup, as Corgan ended up firing drummer Jimmy Chamberlain for drug abuse during the ensuing tour.

** As far as albums go, ''Adore'' certainly fits these days. ''Machina II'' probably fits too, as it's generally regarded as a substantial improvement on the album to which it's a sequel.

* ArchivePanic: There are only ten official studio albums, so that doesn't seem too bad. And then you look at the band's colossal vault of B-sides and reissues. There are 114 tracks in the ''Rarities and B-Sides'' compilation alone, and that's not a complete representation of the band's works. And then you look at the reissues. ''Adore'' and ''The Aeroplane Flies High'' are the most expansive of these thus far, containing six [=CDs=] and a DVD each, which are all filled to the brim with bonus goodies. The running time of the reissued ''Adore'' alone is over nine hours. In short, good luck.
