Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan and the way he acts on roller coasters has become a long-running meme on the internet.

It all started when a photo was taken of him at Disneyland looking miserable on a ride.

It’s pretty iconic but in case you haven’t seen it, here’s a reminder.

The photo not only made for hilarious memes, but even got a reference in Family Guy.

He was a good sport about it, later sharing a photo of himself smiling at the park, saying he was having an “absolutely miserable time.”

Now, a new meme has arrived to continue the saga. It’s a short video poking fun at what the vocalist might sound like on a roller coaster using the Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979,” and you just have to watch it.

The meme has blown up on Twitter, and fans just can’t seem to get enough.

As far as other things Corgan has been up to, he recently went to a Limp Bizkit show with Marilyn Manson that seemed pretty amazing.

Also, he announced he’ll be going on a solo European tour this summer. Corgan released his second solo album, Ogilala, in 2017, and it’s available to stream here. Check out where he’ll be performing below.
