Everyone is talking about the Smashing Pumpkins song “The Beginning is the End is the Beginning” after it was used in a movie trailer for the upcoming superhero film, Watchmen. Thanks to the new Watchmen movie trailer, the song immediately became the Smashing Pumpkins #1 song on Apple’s iTunes and broke into the list of the top 50 most downloaded songs.

Old Smashing Pumpkins Song Gets New Life On Watchmen Soundtrack

As a Smashing Pumpkins fan, I’m really happy that the song is getting all of this new attention. But what most people don’t realize, is this isn’t a new Smashing Pumpkins song. “The Beginning is the End is the Beginning” is actually over 10 years old. The song was originally released in 1997 as part of the Batman & Robin soundtrack.

The song also isn’t exactly a rare or unknown track. It’s an award-winning song. In 1998, “The Beginning is the End is the Beginning” won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance.

But despite winning a Grammy and previously being a part of a blockbuster film soundtrack, the song has never been more popular than it is today. The latest Watchmen trailer has really given “The Beginning is the End is the Beginning” a new injection of popularity.
