The Smashing Pumpkins Tackle 'Space Oddity' at SXSW

Rolling Stone

When the Smashing Pumpkins took to a SXSW rooftop earlier this year, they cranked out this interstellar rendition of David Bowie's 1969 classic "Major Tom." While you won't find the electrifying cover on the Pumpkins' most recent album, Oceania, the band lights up the Austin night in this clip. It's culled from their Guitar Center Sessions performance, which airs on DirecTV on May 17th at 9 p.m. ET.
