On May 14, modern rock will take on the Smashing Pumpkins. MySpace Records has announced that Panic! at the Disco , the Bravery, and others will contribute covers for a tribute record to the recently reunited alt-rock band. The music will first be available as a free stream on the contributing band's MySpace pages, followed by a free CD included with the July issue of Spin magazine. There is no commercial release date slated as yet.
