The Smashing Pumpkins' career-defining 1995 double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness has earned Diamond certification by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of 10,000,000 discs and digital equivalent per disc (5 million copies of the double album). This news comes in the midst of EMI Music's extensive reissue campaign honoring the legacy of the iconic alternative band.

Originally released October 24, 1995, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness would debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified nine time platinum by the RIAA. It yielded major hits like "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" — the band's unlikely first Top 40 hit — the exquisite "1979" and epic "Tonight, Tonight" as well as a thoroughly inspired series of videos. Produced by Billy Corgan, Flood and Alan Moulder, the album would also earn a Grammy Award (1996 Best Hard Rock Performance for "Bullet With Butterfly Wings") as well as seven nominations. Beyond the more obvious hits, though, Mellon Collie is a song cycle of unusual depth and considerable range. It is a collection of stunningly beautiful moments when everything lined up — a moment in time that's still here to be treasured.
