Smashing Pumpkins Cover ‘Silver Bells’ For Disney TV Special


Smashing Pumpkins surprised fans by performing the classic holiday song, “Silver Bells” on an ABC television special, The Wonderful World Of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration.

Frontman Billy Corgan commented: “When you get the call to come play at Disney World, you just don't want to play any weird old Smashing Pumpkins songs.”

He went on to say that, he first came to the park in the early 70’s and still goes there “all the time” with his family.

Shot at Disney World, the band’s performance can be found online. They also premiered an unreleased Christmas song called “Evergreen.” Smashing Pumpkins recorded a Christmas album during the Covid shutdown at Corgan's home studio, but it’s never been released.
