Billy Corgan recently offered his views on Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, the 1995 double disc from his band the Smashing Pumpkins.

"Mellon Collie is weird in that it's a combination of nihilism, sentimentality and epic hope," Corgan told Rolling Stone in a recent interview.

"That was where the generation was at that moment."

Corgan also says the release was a fitting exclamation point for the group's original lineup:

"It really was the last time the four of us worked together in earnest. And maybe I picked up on that; maybe I sensed that and maybe that had something to do with the sort of the desperation and the approach to try and get as much as possible out of it."

Mellon Collie was re-released on December 3 and is available in a variety of formats, including standard and deluxe digital versions and a vinyl package.
