The Smashing Pumpkins (1995) — “1979” [throwback] [♬]

Directed by the creative duo, Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. Upon finishing the video shoot, the band flew to New York to perform. However, all tapes of the footage were accidentally left sitting on top of a car, and were lost as the driver departed. The group later flew back to re-shoot the entire video. Billy Corgan considers it the Pumpkins’ best video calling it “the closest we’ve ever come to realizing everything we wanted.” [Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, April 1996]
