The So-Called “Smashing Pumpkins” Leak: And You Thought That Taylor Hicks Song Was Iffy

Dec 6th, 2006 // 13 Comments

According to, four demos from the new Smashing Pumpkins album may have leaked online–we say “may,” because there’s no way to authenticate that these are actually from the band’s recent sessions with Roy Thomas Baker. One of the tracks is below, and if this is actually Billy Corgan, we’ll eat our hats. We’d eat Corgan’s hat, but he got into a backstage brawl with a fedora during the Mellon Collie tour, and has never looked back:

Some Band That That Is Seriously Not The Smashing Pumpkins – Collapsing Cities [MP3, link expired]

  1. Ned Raggett

    Weirdest wry smile from him yet.

  2. Clare

    Aaaagh! Billy Corgan is staring out of my CRT and into MY SOUL!

  3. nosebleed

    unless billy corgan had deviated septum surgery…

    this ain’t him singing.

  4. SirLoin

    Yeah, WTF? Only someone with head trauma would think that was the Corginator.

  5. Hacky McHackerstein

    Someone refresh my memory- is Jimmy Chamberlin still their drummer? Cause if so that’s not him playing drums. And I concur, there’s NO way that’s Billy Corgan singing.

  6. Brian Raftery

    Good God, why the hell did I float that picture so big?

  7. Jory

    Yes.. Jimmy is still the drummer

  8. xtianrut

    This sounds more like Fastball trying to cover a Sisters of Mercy song than it does the Smashing Pumpkins.

  9. King of Pants

    More importantly, why can’t Billy ever have a shaved upper lip? He looks like he’s about to fix my transmission.

  10. xtianrut

    Or maybe Sugar Ray covering Ministry? I dunno. You pick.

  11. rchick

    i want to smack him in his bald head w/ a rubbery egg mcmuffin patty right now. remember that one, billy?

  12. The Mozfather

    He normally looks like a fetus with hyperthyroidism, but this pic made me notice he’s got great cheekbones. Really, the bottom half of his face seems to belong on a smaller, more model-y body.

  13. Subinev

    whatever that is it’s really bad.
