Billy Corgan Reveals The Story Behind The Smashing Pumpkin’s Hit ‘Today’

In this exclusive chat, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan sits down with Triple M‘s Brendan Annakin to preview the band’s ‘The World Is a Vampire’ Festival hitting Aussie shores in April.

Billy also reveals the story behind The Smashing Pumpkin’s 1993 hit ‘Today’ being about self ownership, and accepting who you really are.

“I was a truly strange person in a genre that was about to be called ‘alternative’. They’re still making fun of me. I’m 55 years old and I’ve got two little kids, and I run a wrestling company called the NWA but somehow I’m still a weirdo.”

Billy Corgan, on being himself in face of hateful comments.
