Believe it or not, Billy Corgan celebrates his 50th birthday today (March 17), and since the start of the year, he’s been working on a new project to highlight the work of his career.

In conjunction with his #ThirtyDays project which found him documenting his travels across the U.S., Corgan also announced #BC50x50, a project where he’s asking for fan input on the 50 favorite songs he’s ever written.

Here’s a video of Cogan explaining the project.

After the fan vote from the Gish album, here’s Corgan’s performance of “Snail.”

To follow the #BC50x50 project, make sure you follow Smashing Pumpkins on Instagram.
