It’s so weird see how everyone in these comments are so frustratingly narrow minded. The “they sold out generation” is why these artists were tossed away. And now we’re stuck with top 20 pop music. You guys made the box so small of what you deemed as good that the studios stopped catering to you and just focused on the kids who were easy to please.

you know what. I really didn't wanna like this. I've been a huge pumpkins fan for as long as I can remember- and seeing he did this, infuriated the traditional pumpkins lover that I am – but I have huge respect for billy as an artist. and fuck it. it's actually a really good version. he's still the man.

Oh man 😮 Billy Corgan of the smashing pumkins covering wrecking ball by a pop star good cover tho better than the original

While I absolutely love the performance, I still don't know how I feel about this. Billy used to "rally against the Britney's of the world and pop music in general". Yet here he is just killing this song. Older wiser perhaps? From a musical standpoint I think its a brilliant performance.

I like Will for always being unabashedly forthright about his desire for recognition/fame and for never changing his teeth. And killing James I ha and building that dope af emotionless shred-bot. Kudos.

Who gives a shit if he's singing pop. He did a good job of it. Stop being such fucking negative nancy's all the time.

I wonder if he is going to replicate the video? Any body what to see Billy Corgan swinging from a wrecking ball in the nude?

Corgan is a fucking hack. He claims to stick up for metal, then covers this soulless pop bullshit? GET REAL…. 🖕💩

Why the fuck has he done this? I mean, it turned out good but it is a shitty pop song that he shouldn't even know

The whole name changed reminded me when Collin Quinn was giving shit to Bobby Kelly when he wanted to be referred as "Robert" a while back

What is this enchanting music? I'm 6 months and listen to rock, and stuff that my dad got me into. Everything before my life was better than it is now. Yada, yada, yada.

I'm just gonna assume in the only kid here that knows who billy corgan is 😁😁😁 and the smashing pumpkins. Sad but true

ahora si parece una hermosa cancion y no una mierda como cuando la canta la vieja esa, una leyenda del rock billy corgan

I can't help but have Darcy in mind while listening to this… It's a shame they can't find a way to work things out.

Great cover! I like the original but usually payed more attention to how annoying the music video is then to fully concentrate on the song. This performance makes the song

Billy's music has shaped my whole life since 1990. If I could hear him perform Sad Peter Pan on the acoustic guitar with someone playing the flute parts with him, my music life would be complete.

Nothing makes me happier than to be able to hold on to the artists who were amazing in my youth and who remain amazing today.

I really hope they do to this live what local h did to toxic by Britney Spears. Although I’m not a Miley fan but this song was actually a song I thought was pretty damn good by her.

Anyone who wants to know who Billy Corgan is…

He's the voice of generation, the leader of the Smashing Pumpkins, a singer/songwriter who is so prolific he puts modern artists (who use 5 or 6 people to help them or in many cases write entire songs) to shame. He, and his band, in my opinion overshadowed Nirvana (who are only as famous because of tragedy) and were the last true alternative band who never became mainstream but through talent and hard work made the mainstream come to them. In the early to mid nineties you'd be hard pressed to find someone who didn't listen to them, they may not admit it because SP became that kinda band…they transcended popularity by 1995 and were just that, popularity in itself

oddly enough I saw this happen with the Cure as well in the very late 80's and early 90's, these bands were so popular that their music and image were inescapable, say what you will but TATT was in middle school in the late 80's and high school until the middle of the 90's so I was there, I, witness

If you dont know who this man is…your parents deserve to be strangled for not exposing you to The Smashing Pumkins.

Smashing pumpkins was cool I was a big fan back then, but we all knew Billy Corgan wasn't a great singer. Same way Blind Faith wasn't known for their singing or even honestly GNR. No one would call Trent Reznor the next Freddy Mercury either. So…covers are weird. I don't want to see Serj Tankien covering other songs either. That voice, meant that band. This….just is what it is. But as a Pumpkins fan, wish honestly it didn't exist, and I think I speak for most of us. Wtf Billy.

Jimmy Fallon you have got something 100% fresh w this you tube page and all the creative awesome and funny bits on here.
