    Alt rock icon Billy Corgan has suggested that The Smashing Pumpkins may be dunzo.

    The band will issue Day for Night next year, but Corgan has intimated that he may be done with this alt rock band, telling The Wall Street Journal that "the next album is like the end, end, end. The trite way to say it is I'm over rock 'n' roll, which is strange because rock 'n' roll is getting back into me. For a lot of years, I cared too much and wrestled with what it meant to carry on a legacy. My legacy was greater in my mind than what other people were giving me credit for."

    Corgan does have quite a rich and unusual legacy. We love him and his work, no matter what he does.

    Would you be bummed if The Smashing Pumpkins were dunzo for good?
