…in which I focused on how “The Spine”, “In Circles”, and “Impossible” shape the game’s characters.

I know there’s a decent handful of you who’ll like this, so have at it.

48 City Lights and The Association of Angry Sewer Rats are slowly but surely taking over the music scene, the only problem is that the two bands hate each other.

Well, they’re supposed to hate each other. Lights’s bassist Ian Gallagher and Rats’s guitarist Mickey Milkovich have different plans.

(AU: OTP are members of rival bands. Shitstorm ensues)

“Geek U.S.A.” is, perhaps, one of the greatest hard rock songs ever written. It’s a roller coaster ride of emotions, hitting almost everything positive aspect that early Smashing Pumpkins records were capable of. It is masterfully heavy but yet intricately designed in a way that feels both loose and technical at the same time. It is tied with “Mayonaise” as my favorite Smashing Pumpkins song and their differing styles show how versatile this band really is.

The guitar and drum work on the song is something to be admired. Billy Corgan’s guitar solo in the song was ranked as the 54th greatest guitar solo ever by Guitar World magazine. When the guitars are being played together in unison, it sounds so thick and heavy. When they are each playing something separately, both are essential and add immensely to the song’s overall value. Jimmy Chamberlin’s drum work was described by producer Butch Vig as “one of the most amazing drum performances I had ever heard.”

One of The Smashing Pumpkins’ biggest strengths was their ability to play with dynamics and tone over the course of a song or record. “Geek U.S.A.” switches between fast hard rock riffs, slow, moody melancholy, mid-tempo rock, and blistering shredding before landing at a feedback-heavy dirge to close out the tune. You hear arrangements like this and it’s no wonder the album was late and over-budget. Corgan was a workhorse in the studio, but the results heard over the course of Siamese Dream were well worth the painstaking effort that went into its creation.
