It’s been a while since Billy Corgan last made headlines for getting into a slap fight with another band. We figured maybe he had decided to lay low as he prepares for the Smashing Pumpkins‘ upcoming tour, but most likely, it’s because he’s run out of bands to complain about. That was the implication last Friday (Aug. 31), when Corgan went on the radio to clarify his recent remarks about Soundgarden.
Rock bands don’t get much bigger than Pearl Jam, but during their headlining set at Philadelphia’s Made In America Festival on Sunday (Sept. 2), the group added even more star power to their set, teaming with rapper Jay-Z for an encore performance of ’99 Problems.’

Since reuniting in 2005, alterna-legends Dinosaur Jr. have released two albums of new material. On Sept. 18, they will release a third, ‘I Bet on Sky.’ The first single from that record, ‘Watch the Corners,’ is currently streaming at Rolling Stone’s website.
The question of whether or not rap belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will probably always remain controversial.
