Siamese Dream is the second studio album by the American band The Smashing Pumpkins. It was released on 27 July 1993 and was more than 6 million copies worldwide ..

During the recording of the album there were massive conflicts within the group. Billy Corgan looked well despite competition from Kurt Cobain and his band Nirvana and wanted an equally successful album release as Nevermind, which was just as Siamese Dream by Butch Vig produced. He had a nervous breakdown and was considering to take his own life. These thoughts processed Corgan especially in the song Today.
