This is a great song
WoW......... . . . . . This song....

A masterpiece of a song!!!

This song was awesome in the Watchmen trailer. (even though I ended up not being terribly fond of the movie).
not saying this is bad - i like it but this is NOT the smashing pumpkins I know
I freaking love this song!!
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.
Check out the remix album.
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.

Love this song.
i have loved this song since 1997 <3
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.
amazing...
pigita.pearl
best song title ever. love how all the similar songs are by muse >_< who i love, by the way.
If this song doesnt move you..you dont have a soul.
I LOOOVE THIS SONG!! frekin amazing work by Billy again...not surprising he made ANOTHER masterpiece! :)
wilcoxn7
fantastic song... perfect in Watchmen
This song is amazing! I love it. Wow!
GREAT SONG .... SMASHING PUMPS RULE
this song is a masterpiece.
i almost feel like this is the best song in the world....

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
Amazing song. Worked great in the Watchmen trailer.

It has a M Manson feel like "Man that you Fear".
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
in my top 5 favorite songs.
I love this song so much.

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
AWESOME SONG.
xombiedoll
that trailer would have been crap without an awesome song like this lol this song is EPIC

I can't decide whether I like this one more or not...This version is definitely more appropriate for Watchmen though. I remember when it came out for Batman and Robin, was my favorite for a while. Gotta love the Pumpkins.
