We couldn't help but snicker when we saw that The Smashing Pumpkins a.k.a. the Billy solo show made #8 on The Independent's list of worst rock and roll comebacks. We still count ourselves fans, but Corgan is sorely testing our ability to even listen to ""Rhinoceros"* without cringing because his current antics continue to sour our appreciation for his band's past heights.

*And we LOVE that song.
