Smashing Pumpkins - Tarantula Video
"Tarantula" Video Review
"Tarantula" is a song by The Smashing Pumpkins. It is the first single from their sixth album, Zeitgeist, and their first release since their 2006 revival. Mr. Boykins already illustrated our slight stokededness on the return of the actually smashing Smashing Pumpkins, but this video just made us realize we actually saw the new bassist and guitar dude's previous bands once and neither were very good.
The song is played in Eb tuning, which is customary for later Smashing Pumpkins songs. It features a shuffle beat with heavy distortion and a catchy pop/rock chorus.
Corgan mentioned during a concert in Berlin that "Tarantula" was titled in honor of the German rock band Scorpions, with whom Corgan had recently collaborated on the Scorpions track "The Cross".
The cover havs a black-and-white photo of Paris Hilton holding a BlackBerry with the Zeitgeist album cover on the screen, and a low-resolution image of a mushroom cloud in the background.
