Cook the linguine according to the package directions; drain.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, over medium heat, fry the bacon until crisp, about 4 minutes.
Transfer the bacon to a paper towel. Spoon off and reserve all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings.
Add the garlic and broccoli rabe to the pan and toss. Add the broth and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer until the broccoli rabe is tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in the corn, salt, pepper, and either the reserved drippings or butter.
Add the linguine and toss. Heat until warmed through, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and bacon and toss.
