Billy Corgan’s Long, Slow Heel Turn Continues
Billy Corgan has turned a snippet of the Smashing Pumpkins‘ alt-rock staple “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” into a spoken-word bit that will serve as the intro to this Sunday’s Total Nonstop Action Wrestling pay-per-view Lockdown, which will feature a bunch of matches confined to a six-sided cage. (Yes, the lyrics have been altered to fit the cage’s dimensions.) Honestly, the most surprising thing about this development is finding out that Kevin Nash is somehow still able to move around a wrestling ring, despite tearing his quads approximately 53 times over the course of his career. The promo—and a recut video for the song featuring wrestlers appearing in the PPV—after the jump.
Corgan and TNA have actually collaborated before, but I have to say, this little bit of promo-cutting makes me think that his heel turn of recent months will culminate in something that lures him into the ring on Sunday night. (NB: I am not going to shell out $30 to see if this happens.) Here’s the new music video!
