A T-Shirt About How Billy Corgan SUCKS

We all know James Iha is the best member of The Smashing Pumpkins, and now there is a t-shirt to prove it.

"James Iha, I think, is just a piece of shit. I think he’s one of the worst human beings I’ve ever met in my life." —Billy Corgan

We can all agree that Billy Corgan is insufferable. He is a cat-loving backyard wrestling fan who has done everything he can to tarnish any legacy he might have had. Remember ZWAN? Yikes.

Anyway, The Smashing Pumpkins had some classics: “1979,” “Disarm,” “Today,” “Tonight,” Tonight,” “Geek U.S.A”(I will stop there; you get it). The coolest member of the band was obviously guitarist and cofounder, James Iha. He lives in New York City, looks bored all the time, and is a huge David Bowie fan. Now that the original Smashing Pumpkins line-up has reunited (someone must be broke), I wanted to let people know that I proudly stand with Iha. When I saw this very simple black t-shirt with Iha’s name printed in white across the chest on my friend Mikey’s Instagram story, I needed to have it. He told me his friend was making them in his living room, gave me an email address, and told me to send $10 via PayPal. Shady, but four days later and I have YET ANOTHER t-shirt. Did I need it? NO. But I got it anyway! Hell yeah.
