Listen to Billy Corgan’s New Impact Wrestling Theme Song ‘Roustabout’
In the spring of 2015, Billy Corgan accepted a position with the Nashville, Tenn.-based TNA Wrestling as their Senior Producer of Creative and Talente Development, which extends itself to creating characters and storylines for its program Impact Wrestling. Now, Corgan -- a pro wrestling enthusiast himself -- has gone a step beyond his duties and penned the new theme song for the show.
The latest Impact Wrestling series premieres tonight (Jan. 5) at 9PM ET on the Pop network, and it will boast brand-new opening credits featuring Corgan’s song “Roustabout.” The track was originally intended for the Smashing Pumpkins, but Corgan instead lent the tune to TNA. Take a listen in the video above (via Yahoo!).
“Billy and I were discussing creative elements for the show when he suggested the song and presented the opportunity to use it on Impact Wrestling,” TNA Senior Vice President of Television John Gaburick told Yahoo. “To be able to use an unreleased Smashing Pumpkins song is awesome and sets a commanding stage as fans tune in every Tuesday.”
