Billy Corgan Shares New 'Impact Wrestling' Theme Song
Wed, 06 Jan 2016 11:13:19
Billy Corgan, lead singer of Smashing Pumpkins and Zwan, has released the new theme song for TNA's "Impact Wrestling." Originally, the song, entitled "Roustabout," was penned as a Smashing Pumkins track. However, back in April, Corgan signed on as a Senior Producer of Creative and Talent Development for the Nashville-based professional wrestling company, and they will now be using the song as the theme for their new weekly show on the Pop TV. The show premieres tonight [Jan 6] at 9 pm/8pm Central
The song is certainly unique when it comes to pro wrestling themes, and features layered synths, drums, and even a few piano chords. Wrestling fans shouldn't worry though, the video is full of chair smashing, flips off the top rope, and good old ring brawls, promising fans that it'll keep to the spirit of the sport.
It seems like it's the closest thing Pumpkin fans are going to get to new music any time soon, as there has been no mention of new music from their camp or any upcoming tour dates presented by the band. Hopefully, all the high-flying antics will get fans to beg for more music.
