The track was originally written for Smashing Pumpkins
Billy Corgan has revealed a new track ‘Roustabout’, originally written for his band Smashing Pumpkins, but now released as a theme song for American wrestling show Impact.
Corgan took a job with Nashville-based TNA Wrestling in April 2015, with the title Senior Producer, Creative and Talent Development. He’s been playing a role in producing storylines and developing characters for the Impact Wresting series, which airs weekly. According to tweets by the Pumpkins frontman, his role is full time.
Corgan released a statement at the time of his signing up with the series, saying:
“What’s great is the entire TNA organization stands in full support of my music life with the Smashing Pumpkins. In return, I’m fully committed to using my 30 years of entertainment experience, along with my deep-rooted passion for pro wrestling, to take on the thrilling challenge of creatively contributing to Impact Wrestling, finding and developing new talent, and working eye-to-eye with the best-of-the-best. For as cultures currently evolve at great speed, so must pro wrestling meet and supersede such expectations to thrive.”

Back in October his band Smashing Pumpkins released a video for ‘Run2Me‘, taken from their ninth album ‘Monuments to an Elegy’, which was released in December 2014.
At Halloween, the frontman hosted a party at his Chicago tea shop, after launching an artisanal tasting box for paleo and vegan food earlier in the year.
