My head says Nirvana - bigger influence, I guess you could say more artistic integrity, less overblown, cooler inspirations...

 

...but...

 

The Pumpkins were 1,000x more important to me as a teen. Gish came out when I was 11 and I pretty much kissed goodbye with Machina as a 20 year old. In between times I loved SP so much it was almost unhealthy.

 

So heart says SP.

 

In hindsight I can see how ridiculous the Pumpkins and Corgan were to the proper (jaded) indie set back then.. but my god it was fun to grow up with them. A generation before it would've definitely been the Smiths, Cocteau Twins and the Cure.
