Two-time Grammy Award-winning alternative rock band Smashing Pumpkins emerged in 1988. With over 30 million records sold worldwide, the Chicago-born band is widely considered to be one of the most commercially successful bands of the 1990s. They are often credited as having an essential role in the popularization of the alternative rock music genre.
The band has released a total of twelve studio albums, with multiple albums achieving gold, platinum, and multi-platinum certifications. Many consider their most commercially successful albums, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and Siamese Dream 1993, for having a defining role in the development of the alternative rock scene. Both albums reached the top spot of the Billboard 200. Siamese Dream debuted at number 10 on the Billboard 200 and was later certified four times platinum in the U.s. Moreover, it has sold more than six million copies worldwide. The album featured hits like “Cherub Rock,” “Today,” “Disarm,” and “Rocket.” Meanwhile, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness sold over ten million copies in the U.S. and later earned a diamond certification. The album also spawned the hit song “Bullet with Butterfly Wings,” which won them the Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1997. One year later, the band released “The End is the Beginning is the End,” an official soundtrack single for the 1997 film Batman & Robin. The song won the band their second Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance.
