Our boy, Billy, is at it again.

Yes, he’s licensed another one of his most well known songs.  This time to be used as the official theme song for a Pay-Per-View TNA wrestling event.  (He previously licensed “Today” for Visa as discussed in this post.  Guess the price of eyeliner and shaving cream has gone up.  

To be fair, Corgan did partner with TNA last year, so this isn’t a new venture for him.  But that was for the track, “Tarantula,” which was a new single at the time as he began his ill-fated attempt to reunite and re-launch the Smashing Pumpkins.  And with a dearth of available outlets to promote a new single for a nineties rock band, that made more sense.  This time, he dug into his vault and licensed one of his most loved and revered songs.  It’s a little different.  And as discussed in the posting on “Today”/Visa, contradicts his previous stance that this music is “sacred” and “not for sale.”    
But I guess these are hard times even for giant, hunch-back, bald, millionaire, guitar slinging, rock stars.  Hopefully he’ll use his extra cash to get himself an adequate replacement for his recently departed drummer, Jimmy Chamberlain.  Or better yet, to pay Jimmy enough to come back.
