Before hitting the road with Marilyn Manson, Billy Corgan is embarking on Smashing Pumpkinsfirst-ever acoustic tour. For the tour, which he’s dubbed In Plainsong, Corgan promises setlists that touched on all eras of Smashing Pumpkins (there’s been a lot). He wasn’t kidding.

During a show in Munhall, Pennsylvania this week, Corgan performed every song from the Pumpkins’ iconic debut Gish, and he did so in three minutes. After successfully completing the instrumental medley, Corgan suggested they should do the band’s entire catalog in similar fashion and began playing “Geek USA”, a track from Siamese Dream. Watch fan-shot footage below.

For what it’s worth, it took Corgan two minutes longer to explain the state of the music industry.
