The Smashing Pumpkins broke into the musical mainstream with their second album, 1993's Siamese Dream. The group built its audience with extensive touring and their 1995 follow-up, the double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart. With 30 million albums sold worldwide, the Smashing Pumpkins were one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands of the 1990s. However, internal fighting, drug use, and diminishing record sales led to a 2000 break-up . Early years: 1988–1991. Mainstream breakout and Siamese Dream: 1992–1994. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness: 1995–1997. Adore, Machina, and breakup: 1998–2000. Post-breakup: 2001–2004.
Although the artistic scope of the album is immense, the Smashing Pumpkins flourish in such an overblown setting. Corgan's songwriting has never been limited by conventional notions of what a rock band can do, even if it is clear that he draws inspiration from scores of '70s heavy metal and art rock bands

Released October 24, 1995. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Tracklist. 1. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Lyrics. 2. Tonight, Tonight Lyrics. The third studio album by the Smashing Pumpkins was released on October of 1995 as a double-disc. Despite the high price tag in the pre-digital era, the album was soon certified as diamond, an accomplishment made by very few rock bands in the 1990’s. Nobody in the music industry saw it coming; except for Billy Corgan that is, who called this success as being vindicated. For some time, the album held the record for being the best-selling double CD of all time.
In late 1995, Smashing Pumpkins released the quintessential album for sulking, bedroom-dwelling teenagers with Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness, the bands most popular album. In the years leading up to Mellon Collie, the Pumpkins were coming off of instant recognition with 1993’s Siamese Dream, the bands iconic sophomore effort, and Gish, their underappreciated debut. Double albums can often be a bit tough to get through and Mellon Collie is no exception as it lasts a little over two hours. There are a few weaker tracks that easily could have been scrapped from the album such as Tales of a Scorched Earth, By Starlight and Love, as they are noticeable down points of the record.
