"All the Young Dudes" is a 1972 single by David Bowie. Bowie asked Billy Corgan to play it with him at his 50th Birthday Party, along with "The Jean Genie". When Corgan asked why he chose "All the Young Dudes" for him, Bowie replied that the lyric "Billy's rapped all night 'bout his suicide" reminded him of Corgan.[1]

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Billy rapped all night 'bout his suicide
How he'd kick it in the head when he was 25
Don't wanna stay alive when you're 25
Wendy's stealing clothes from unlocked cars
Freddy's got spots from ripping off stars from his face
