Douche or Tool: Billy Corgan

"At the moment, there is a great deal of debate over whether Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is a douche or a tool for having fired or driven away the rest of his bandmates," Mark Arenz writes at Ridiculopathy.

Let's take a look.

DOUCHE: "bc is such a complete thief, liar, hypocrite and fraud, at least jc is basically admitting he's sick of being all these things," writes commenter numnuts at Aversion.

TOOL: "[Chamberlin] can't 'cash the check' but had no problem cashing the check from the terrible Visa commercials using 'Today' and Hyundai commercials using whatever garbage song he and the bald jerk cooked up for an ad campaign for a luxury car. That's the least sacred treatment you could give to your music. Chamberlin turns out to be as full of it as Corgan," writes commenter Dan at Turn It Up.

DOUCHE: "He finally couldn't stand Billy Corgan's egotistical douche bag ways," writes commenter Provacteur at

TOOL/DOUCHE: "This is the man who last November berated a fan in mid-set, telling him 'By the way, I like that song that you wrote. I believe it was number one. Take Your Dick Out of My Ass and Stick It in My Mouth'? That was a big hit in Europe," writes Kat Gardiner at TinyMixTapes.

TOOLBAG: "What a toolbag," writes commenter koalafishmutantbird at Blabbermouth.

DOUCHE/TOOL: "So that makes Billy Corgan the next Axl Rose, so perhaps we should expect the frontman (or the only man) to get started on a ten year project that is sure to disappoint," says Music Review Zone.

DOUCHE: "His actual reason for leaving: Billy Corgan's a douche," writes commenter Uwe Blab at Absolute Punk.
