Helmed by MySpace, a project is being baked for bands like Panic! At the Disco, 30 Seconds to Mars, +44 and The Academy Is... to record their favorite songs from The Smashing Pumpkins' collection.
Each band will post their version of Pumpkins' songs on their respective MySpace blog on May 14. The covered-songs will then be molded into CD that will be available along with July edition of Spin Magazine. The magazine will also feature each band's personal comment on the Pumpkins.
While almost every band has landed their choice, 30 Seconds to Mars is still keeping the track a secret. Here is the list of tracks:
Panic! At the Disco: "Tonight, Tonight"
+44: "I Am One"
The Academy Is ... : "Mayonaise"
30 Seconds to Mars: TBA
The Bravery: "Rocket"
Young Love: "1979"
The New Amsterdams: "Thirty-Three"
Test Your Reflex: "Ava Adore"
Ben Kweller: "Today"
Hawthorne Heights: "Bullet With Butterfly Wings"
