zeitgeist.jpgARTIST: The Smashing Pumpkins
TITLE: “Doomsday Clock”
WEB DEBUT: June 19, 2007
RELEASE DATE: July 10, 2007
ONE-LISTEN VERDICT: Those of you still worried about last year’s faux-Pumpkins mini-scandal can breathe easy: This track’s opening drum thwacks and snarled vocal lines are all authentically Pumpkinsy, and “Clock” will no doubt appeal to fans of harder-edged Corgan numbers like “Bodies” or “Jellybelly.” But what’s with the tortured “nobody loves me” chorus? Hasn’t anyone befriended this guy in the past ten years?
WHERE TO FIND IT: Deaf Indie Elephants

  1. Ned Raggett

    I’m almost used to the cover now.

  2. Bob Loblaw

    And I’m almost used to Carlos Mencia having a hit show. It’s small consolation.

  3. KinetiQ

    Man, I hope Billy Corgan never meets Carlos Mencia. Now I’ve got this horrible loop in my brain of Billy whining that damnable “dit-dit-duh”.

    That’s possibly the only way either Carlos or Billy could have gotten more annoying; it’s like a shitty Voltron.
