Disarm

When I started at UCSB in '92 my roommate Kevbo introduced me to all sorts of bands, the Smashing Pumpkins included. They even came in '93, although memories of that concert aren't great: lousy seats, being from Chicago they didn't seem to like being in SB, and not having gone to college he seemed to resent playing at one. C'est la vie. But damn if this video doesn't get the juices going. Some serious audience signing along at the beginning of Disarm, and the band & audience are amazing throughout. In the Civil Wars post I had a link to them doing Disarm on their North American tour, here it is again (stage banter ends/music starts 3:39) so you can compare the versions. Great song.
