Billy Corgan in “Today”

This was probably my favorite song during my junior year of high school.  But the story I’m going to tell is from college.  Once a year my fraternity used to make signs promoting “Smashing Pumpkins” for one of our rush parties.  Sadly we never actually were able to book the band to come play at our lodge.  However, we made good on our promise by buying a bunch of pumpkins and letting the rushees smash them with a baseball bat one at a time, like a pinata.   It was always a big hit.
