American rockers THE Smashing Pumpkins shocked fans last night (05Jun07) by performing a secret gig in Germany, and using it to mock the country's love of David Hasselhoff. The recently reformed band - showing off a new line-up - performed an acoustic set for 200 fans in Berlin. After wowing the intimate crowd with all of their classic hits, frontman Billy Corgan embarked on a question and answer session, during which he poked fun at the former Baywatch star - who has enjoyed a phenomenally successful pop career in Germany. When asked why he chose the German word Zeitgest for the band's new album, Corgan replied, "Because the word Hasselhoff was taken." He added, "We don't like to play our old material, we get Hasselhoff to play the songs off Siamese Dream (their 1993 second album)."
