Impact Wrestling debuts Tuesday on a brand new (apparently real!) network, and Billy Corgan has decided do something special for the occasion.
Late Monday evening, Corgan debuted a previously unreleased Smashing Pumpkins track called ‘Roustabout’ as the new theme song for Impact Wrestling. According to Yahoo Music, Corgan ‘had originally written the song for a future project but decided to release it as the new theme.’
If you’re listening and thinking man, I sure am glad I stopped listening to the Smashing Pumpkins when I did, haha oops me too. While I’m not sure if it should have been made available for public consumption as-is, it’s best to keep in mind the previous theme ‘Roustabout’ is replacing: ‘Megatron’ by Crazy Town. I’m constantly trying to give TNA the benefit of the doubt, but look, if you’re using Crazy Town’s music and you’re not a fifteen year old MTV Spring Break fashion show, you’re not exactly setting the bar very high for yourself.
Billy Corgan joined Impact Wrestling in April 2015 as “Senior Producer, Creative and Talent Development.” Corgan was very vocal about taking the company in a new direction, but the results have been mixed. We’ll find out what the new year has to offer when Impact debuts live on Pop TV Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.
