Billy Corgan Asked About His Bizarre Kurt Cobain Meeting


Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan was asked in a recent Instagram Q&A about the Pumpkins playing Twister with Nirvana members Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl, and Krist Novoselic. The game was filmed and partially broadcast on MTV.

Corgan trolled the fans who asked, claiming he didn’t remember. Corgan frequently uses ‘TBH’ to troll when people ask him questions they can find the answer for online, and usually pretends he never met the people mentioned in the question.

Do you remember playing Twister with Nirvana?

No, that wasn’t us, TBH.

There’s a video of you playing Twister with Nirvana though. Doppelganger?

Again, that’s not us.

Ever met Alex Jones?

Never met him, TBH.

Are you a coffee guy? Not sure where you find the energy all the time.

Have never drank coffee in my life. I’m a tea person all the way.

In my opinion, some people just don’t get your work after Mellon Collie and that’s why they can’t like it.

That’s fine. The early work was supposed to be easier to follow/understand. That’s what made it popular.

You can watch the rare Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins Twister game video from 1991 below. It is the only known video of Billy Corgan and Kurt Cobain together.

    I wonder if Cobain knew that Corgan was also playing twister with his wife?

    Also, TBH? To be honest?

    • Thomas Snelling

      Haha that’s awesome.. also that’s my best guess tbh = to be honest

      His TBH must mean something else…there are videos of him being interviewed on the Alex Jones show.
