Brief descriptions of the videos:
I Am One - remained unreleased until the "Greatest Hits" video in 2001.
Siva - band playing in a room, candles, flowers, weird makeup, etc.
Rhinoceros - band sitting & playing different instruments in a room,
D'Arcy bouncing a ball, reverse footage, ornate fountains, & shots of the
Cherub Rock - band playing outside in the dark by some trees, weird color
effects, lighting diagrams, etc.
Disarm - black & white, closeups of members playing, aerial shots of
buildings, etc. Includes cellist Eric Remschneider.
Today - Billy drives through a desert in an ice cream truck, picks up
James (wearing a dress), stops at a gas station & finds other 2 members;
they paint the truck all funky & then drive off, leaving Billy
Rocket - a few kids build a rocket out of junk, blast off from their back
yard, and land on another planet to find SP as an elderly band
Bullet - band plays on a stage in the middle of a dry dirt field full of
dirty workers. Billy has on the infamous Zero shirt & silver pants
1979 - shows a bunch of kids driving around, going to a party (at which
SP is playing), wreaking havoc, and ransacking a convenience store
Zero - dark colors, strange-looking people in odd makeup, closeups of
band, etc. Includes MCIS-era keyboardist Jonathan Melvoin.
Tonight Tonight - made to look like an old movie (flickery lights, etc.)
includes recreation of George Melies' 1902 film "A Trip to the Moon", one
of the first films to use special effects. The video won 6 MTV Video Music
Awards in 1996 and was nominated for a Grammy in 1996 for Best Short Form
Thirty-Three - various shots done in stop-motion style, creating a jerky
effect. Includes Billy by sunset and painting, and trio in suits
TEITBITE - space-age costumes & props, members floating around, with
shots from Batman and Robin in the background.
Ava Adore - band is dressed up in Gothic costumes (Billy with long gown,
heavy red eye make-up and white face...). Camera follows them through
different rooms in a single, uninterrupted long take at varying camera
speeds, creating interesting effects.
Perfect - a so-called sequel to the 1979 video. A girl gets pregnant,
a guy tapes the Pumpkins playing at a party, the tape falls off his car
when driving (a reference to the real footage for the 1979 being lost),
and he gets in an accident.
The Everlasting Gaze - takes place in a parking-garage-like environment
with green astroturf carpeting. The video concludes with the band members
smashing their instruments into pieces.
Stand Inside Your Love - Done in an old black-and-white silent film style,
features a woman (played by Corgan's then-girlfriend, Yelena Yemchuk)
dancing for by a fat king, and the band all wearing large hooped black
dresses. Said to be a tribute to Oscar Wilde's play "Salomé".
Try, Try, Try - Follows the life of a teenage drug addict couple living on
Untitled - Two versions exist- one, a montage of footage of the band from
1988-2000, as released by TV stations and online portals in 2001, and
another of the band playing at the CRC, their usual studio, released on the
Greatest Hits video that same year.
Tarantula - The official video includes the band dressed in white, with
several extras, green-screened over a psychedelic color-changing
background. Later, the raw green-screen footage was released, allowing
fans to make their own version of the video for a contest- 2 winners and
a runner-up were chosen by the band.
That's the Way - Billy follows a woman around in a dull, grey futuristic
world; the band see each other on videophone screens, then all drive off
in various retro-futuristic vehicles & play on a floating platform.
Superchrist - Billy and Jimmy play along with Gary and Sky Saxon, several
women dressed as nurses (including Linda Strawberry and photographer
Kristin Burns) photograph and inject Sky Saxon. Porn star Sasha Grey
appears as a dancer.
G.L.O.W. - the band (Billy, Jimmy, Jeff, Ginger, & Gingger Shankar) play
at a club party event, people in giant rabbit masks play tennis.
Owata - follows 2 female wrestlers and their manager. A longer "short film"
version includes a story & dialogue. First music video shot on the Red Epic
M camera, also used by famous film directors Peter Jackson & James Cameron.
