Billy Corgan Pokes Fun At Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”


Smashing Pumpkins frontman/Instagram shitposter Billy Corgan expertly trolled a fan in Instagram private messenger on Wednesday.

A fan asked Corgan, “Hey dude I’m a huge fan of the smashing pumpkins, and you in general, just out of curiosity what would you say your best song ever is?”

The Smashing Shitposter shot back, “Smells Like Teen Spirit?”

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan discussed issues he’s had with people in the ‘Nirvana world’ but not specifically members of the band in an interview with Joe Rogan a couple of months ago. Alternative Nation transcribed his comments.

Corgan said, “Those inner scene rivalries never end. I’ve had weird experiences with, not with Nirvana ‘people,’ but people who were in the Nirvana world. There’s still this weird, cause I’m from Pumpkin world, like sometimes I’ll have weird stuff happen and I’ll dig down and find out it was somebody who used to work in Nirvana world trying to cut my ankles 27 years later. Like so weird.”

He also discussed playing at a club in Boston with Nirvana in 1992, and how the show wasn’t even sold out.

“We once played at that little club, it was an alt club across from Fenway, I can’t remember what it was called, Axis? We played there in, I don’t know, 1992, it wasn’t even sold out. Like 700 people kind of thing.
