Easily one of the Pumpkins' greatest songs, and one of the greatest album openers of all time.

My second favourite Smashing Pumpkins track, after 1979. It best captures that heavy yet dreamy style of Siamese Dream.

I could spend around 20 hours explaining how fantastic the first minute of Cherub Rock as well as Siamese Dream is, but I'm going to try to condense it into one paragraph.

Two short, quiet snare rolls lead into a single guitar playing 2 notes back and forth as a heavy drum pattern begins forming. More guitars are introduced, the drum pattern gets louder, heavy distortion lets the listener know that this is all about to go down. Immediately distorted guitars begin playing the riff that will occupy most of the track, but not all of it. It shows the heavier and lighter side of the band in around 20 seconds, and how they've mastered what they tried to accomplish on Gish, and succeeded. Billy's vocals come in, and instead of a massive scream with heavy power, he's very collected and calm, although he would let loose later into the track. The guitars continue to build, Jimmy's drumming is heavy but still building. A continuously frantic Billy Corgan begins screaming "Let me out," as the song progresses. And then the solo. Everything begins to take a new center, instead of everything focusing on one sound, they all begin to combine into what I believe is the best album opener and one of the best rock songs period.

In other words it's a good song.
