Seen them in New Orleans, Birminham, Atlanta, Pensacola -- Corgan quite the lyricist -- just got tired of them because it seems that every guy I've ever known has dedicated their lyrics to me and made mixed tapes of various Corgan songs expressing lovesickness

This song was awesome in the Watchmen trailer. (even though I ended up not being terribly fond of the movie).

When the world runs out of OIL in 21st century, and IF we cannot find a suitable replacement, and IF there is a global economic collapse, then this would be a good song to play.

unusual style of song but I like it for being so different.

As this was made around 1997 it makes sense how this would have a trip hop influence to it.

Not at all a Smashing Pumpkins fan (mostly because their frontman's voice is so annoying), but I like this song.

Haunting... I like it.

Sorry Stacey, but When the Levee Breaks played to the Sucker Punch trailer blows it out of the water, and it beats the Watchmen trailer by a narrow margin.

I too agree with Jeremiah. Arcade Fire and Where the Wild Things Are would take a close 2nd.

I totally agree with jeremiah. It was perfect!

I had these on the Batman and Robin soundtrack way back in the day.

If there was such a thing as an award for the best soundtrack to a movie trailer...th e Watchmen movie trailer with the Beginning is the End is the Beginning would win the award. Hands down, no runner-ups, no appeals, no instant replay red flag, that trailer would automaticall y win.

Correction: Not the CD version, I was referring to "The End is the Beginning is the End"

Amazing song. The CD version is a bit better, though, and is more energetic. I haven't seen the movie yet.

I have to disagree. Awesome song for an equally awesome movie! The only thing I hated from Watchmen was the featured song from My Chemical Romance... why oh WHY did the producers pick that band for Watchmen!?!? ? ! If you haven't heard it, pop in the Special Features disc and watch. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate My Chemical Romance but it's like mixing mayonnaise with chocolate.

This is much better than that awful movie watchmen... only redeeming quality of the trailer was that they used this song.

It has always been a great song, glad it's finally getting some attention!

jee looks like the only smashing pumpkins song i like! although Muse's Take a Bow worked just as well

Both this song and "The End Is The Beginning Is The End" were on the Batman & Robin soundtrack. They share the same basic structure, but have different tempos, lyrics, instruments, etc. "The End..." is the one that won the Hard Rock Grammy in '97, by the way. Unfortunatel y , the soundtrack doesn't seem to be in the pandora.com database. http://www.a m a z o n . c o m / B a t m a n - R o b i n - I n s p i r e d - M o t i o n - P i c t u r e / d p / B 0 0 0 0 0 2 N F Z

The song was released on the Batman & Robin soundtrack and was written by Billy Corgan. The song won the 1998 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance.

Billy Corgan said of the song,
“ I found myself going, 'I can't write a song about Batman, I'm in an alternative band.' And I thought, this is stupid, if I can write a song about Batman and it serves the purpose, which is to make it
