I heard that Donald Trump reached out to Billy to ask about using "Rat In A Cage" as his reelection anthem.

Red face

Billy already mentioned to be caught in a rat trap in 1978:



There was an awful lot of rocking going on that night
Cruising time for the young bright lights
Just down past the gasworks, by the meat factory door
The Five Lamp boys were coming on strong
The Saturday night city beat had already started
The pulse of the corner boys sprang into action
And young Billy watched it all under the yellow street light
And said "tonight of all nights there's gonna be a fight"

He doesn't like it living here in this town
He says the traps have been sprung long before he was born
He says "hope bites the dust behind all the closed doors
And pus and grime ooze from its scab crusted sores
There's screaming and crying in the high rise blocks"
It's a rat trap Billy and you're already caught
But you can make it if you want to or you need it bad enough
You're young and good looking and you're acting kind of tough
Anyway it's Saturday night time to see what's going down
Put on the bright suit Billy, head for the right side of town
It's only 8 o'clock but you're already bored
You don't know what it is but there's got to be more
You'd better find a way out, hey kick down the door
It's a rat trap and you've been caught

In this town Billy says "everybody tries to tell you what to do"
In this town Billy says "everybody says you gotta follow rules."
Hey you walk up to those traffic lights
Switch from your left to right
You push in that button, and when that button comes alight
It tells you
"Walk don't walk
Talk don't talk"
Hey Billy take a walk...with me
Little Judy's trying to watch Top of the Pops
But Mum and Dad are fighting, don't they ever stop
She take down her coat and walks out on the street
It's cold on that road, but it's got that home beat
Deep down in her pockets she finds 50p
Now is that any way for a young girl to be
"I'm gonna get out of school work in some factory
Work all the hours God gave me get myself a little easy money"
Now, now, now na na

Her mind's made up, she walks down the road
Her hands in her pockets, coat buttoned 'gainst the cold
She finds Billy down at the Italian cafe
And when he's drunk it's hard to understand what Billy says
But then he mumbles in his coffee and suddenly roars
"It's a rat trap and we've been caught...."

The reason Billy Corgan ended up smashing his music into commercials:

https://en.uncyclopedia.co/wiki/The_Smashing_Pumpkins

In 2008, Corgan announced that after the disappointment of Newgeist and the last tour where that one guy kept on yelling "PLAY '1979'", the Smashing Pumpkins' primary focus is now to release commercials. Corgan worked feverishly on a Toyota Superbowl commercial and a Visa "Win What you Buy" radio ad. He says that 444 new commercials are on the way for Taco Bell and will debut during American Idol.

Billy has said his best commercial is sitting on a shelf, probably never to be released, because of a few negative online fan reactions to his Visa commercial. His friends said it was his best commercial ever, too, but ...

this may in fact be the greatest non-Trump-related kneejerk reaction of the 21st century
