This amazing vintage rock tee is for the alternative rock group Smashing Pumpkins. The shirt is from 1994, the year the band released their compilation album Pisces Iscariot, and the back of the shirt includes a list of all the songs including on the album. The release was produced by Virgin Records and it included a number of b-sides and outtakes like "Hello Kitty Kat", "Pissant", "Plume", and a cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide". Aside from a few covers, all of the songs were written by the band's frontman and primary songwriter, Billy Corgan.
The Smashing Pumpkins emerged on the scene in the late 80s, and drew inspiration from genres like gothic rock, heavy metal, psychedelic rock, and progressive rock to create their own diverse, guitar heavy sound. The Smashing Pumpkins achieved mainstream success upon the release of their second album Siamese Dream, which was released in 1993. Extensive touring, and their follow up album Mellon Collie and Infinite Sadness helped to solidify the band's popularity and with 30 million records sold worldwide, they became one of the most commercially successful bands of the 90s.
Mellon Collie and Infinite Sadness was released following Pisces Iscariot and it debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, aided by the popularity of its lead single "Bullet with Butterfly Wings". The album was certified diamond and earned the group seven Grammy Award nominations, including one for Album of the Year. The success of the record really solidified the band as mainstream rockstars, as the songs "Bullet with Butterfly Wings", "1979", "Tonight Tonight", and "Thirty Three" all became top 40 hits that crossed from rock over to the pop radio stations.
