G.O.A.T.: 1979 by The Smashing Pumpkins (1996)

The double-album Mellon Collie as well as the unlimited unhappiness was really the third album from The Smashing Pumpkins, even if it is the only one many people ever heard.  They’d had a few singles before it came out (notably I Am One as well as Today), as well as were acknowledged as skilled alt-rockers, however it was this record that blew apart the mainstream as well as assisted redefine the alternate genre.  1979 was a easy song, as well as short, as well as started with a unusual bump.  It had a mournful hook as well as practically felt like the alt-rock version of Stevie Wonder’s “I Wish,” as it kept in mind back to Billy Corgan’s days as a pre-teen—restless as he was.

Here’s some celebrating cover versions, complied with by a few much more tasty Pumpkin covers, after the break.
