The Smashing Pumpkins are holding an open audition to replace their last bassist -- but men might face an uphill battle ... because two of the last three bassists were ladies.

Lead singer Billy Corgan insists it doesn't matter where you're from or who you are as long as you can rock out -- and we're guessing that includes men too. Corgan's also hoping to fill a keyboardist position.

Musicians have until March 31st to get their tapes in -- for info on how to try out, check the band's website.
