History

In 1994 in San Jose, California, Steven Harwell was a veteran of a disbanded rap group called F.O.S. which had released only one single, "Big Black Boots", available only on vinyl. His former manager was Kevin Coleman. Harwell wanted to form a rock band, so Coleman introduced him to friends guitarist Greg Camp and bassist Paul De Lisle, both veterans of a local punk band called Lackadaddy. They met and held their first rehearsal later, with Coleman on drums. They named themselves Smash Mouth after a football term coined by Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka, describing a style of hard, straightforward and bare-knuckles rock-and-roll. For the most part, the band played ska punk, somewhat popular at the time, although Harwell has since claimed that the band is variously influenced. For the English folk dance, see Rapper sword. ...

Smash Mouth got its break in 1996 when San Jose rock radio station KOME played a demo of the band's song "Nervous in the Alley" which achieved some notoriety. The group was signed by Interscope Records after a show, and Smash Mouth released a first album, Fush Yu Mang the next year, sporting a title in a font suggesting Oriental characters.

"Walkin' on the Sun" was Smash Mouth's first major single, released 1997. The lyrics in "Walkin' on the Sun" present an ironic and implied Generation X view of the hippie movement, extolling ideals of peace and love, and the subsequent conversion of those ideals into simple commercial fads. The song was the lead single from Fush Yu Mang. The album combined light-hearted fun with songs exposing a darker side, such as "Disconnect the Dots" and the aforementioned "Nervous in the Alley". "Let's Rock" did moderately well as the third and final single, and the album went double platinum. The song "Can't Get Enough of you Baby" was featured in the movie Can't Hardly Wait, and the video was included as bonus material on VHS. The video included an appearance by Jennifer Love Hewitt.

In 1999 Smash Mouth released a second album, Astro Lounge. This album involved much less of the band's previous ska influence. It is more laid back, sophisticated and retro-sounding, and to a point, poppy. Although the change drove away some of the original fanbase, many new fans discovered Smash Mouth, and Astro Lounge is possibly the most critically acclaimed album from the group. The album was also worthy of note in that it was the first Smash Mouth release that did not contain a single swear word, particularly strange in light of the fact that Fush Yu Mang had received a Parental Advisory warning from the RIAA.

The Astro Lounge single "All Star" became popular in mid-1999, and it was featured on the soundtracks for the movies Mystery Men and later Shrek and Rat Race. "All Star" was followed by another single, "Then the Morning Comes". "Stoned" and "Waste" followed and did moderately well as singles. Astro Lounge sold triple platinum, proving the band was not a one hit wonder as they had been previously tagged by critics for "Walkin' On The Sun".

In 2001 Smash Mouth covered The Monkees hit "I'm a Believer". It was featured on the Shrek movie soundtrack. This was followed by the release of a self-titled album Smash Mouth. However, because this song was featured on the Shrek soundtrack, it caused many people to buy that album over Smash Mouth's own. [citation needed] (Smash Mouth was not released until November, and the Shrek soundtrack was out as soon as the song was released as a single.) Nonetheless, Smash Mouth had moderate success. With its singles "Holiday In My Head", "Pacific Coast Party", and "Shoes N' Hats" to support it, the album managed to go gold despite the relative competition of the Shrek soundtrack album.

In 2003 Smash Mouth released Get The Picture?, which they expected to be their comeback album due to somewhat disappointing sales on Smash Mouth. Unfortunately, the album sold a disappointing 33,000 units, especially compared to the way Smash Mouth has sold in the past. Moderately popular single "You Are My Number One" attracted some attention, while the singles "Hang On" and "Always Gets Her Way" flopped. Due to the low sales as well as the band's concerns of loss of creative control, Smash Mouth was dropped from Interscope. 2003 also saw the release of the animated film The Jungle Book 2 which features the band on the soundtrack singing the Sherman Brothers song "I Wanna Be Like You".

Following their signing to Universal Records, Smash Mouth released a greatest hits compilation All Star Smash Hits in 2005. The album contains some of the more popular songs from previous Smash Mouth albums, as well as songs from soundtrack albums which were not on the band's own releases.

Smash Mouth's fifth studio album, Old Habits, was expected to be released in early 2006. In September 2005, the band performed what was tentatively going to be the album's first single, "Getaway Car", on Last Call with Carson Daly. The album was delayed many times, in the hope of gaining publicity with Steve's appearance on the reality show The Surreal Life. Some time after recording Old Habits, Smash Mouth returned to the studio to see if they could write better songs than the ones they had written for Old Habits, in the hope of making the record better. Old Habits was shelved, replaced by Summer Girl, which included some remixed Old Habits tracks as well as new songs. After being delayed in much the same way Old Habits was for several months, the album was released on September 19, 2006. The tentative cover for Old Habits Old Habits is the upcoming fifth studio album by alternative rock band Smash Mouth. ...

Summer Girl, to be released on September 19th 2006, is the fifth album by the San Jose, California rock band Smash Mouth. ...


Before the release of Summer Girl, the Smash Mouth community was surprised to learn that drummer Michael Urbano, who seemed very enthusiastic about the band, left on February 14, 2006 due to creative differences. The band found a new drummer, Jason Sutter, best known for his work with American Hi-Fi and The Rembrandts. Smash Mouth also let Sony Pictures use much of their music from Summer Girl and other songs for the movie Zoom, whose opening titles credit the film's music to the band.

Not to be confused with the public television TV series ZOOM or a Flash supervillan Zoom. ...


Though Smash Mouth is now once again, sort of an "underground" band, the band is probably in better shape than they have been in years. Fans are citing Summer Girl, largely a combination of Fush Yu Mang and Astro Lounge as the band's best material in years.[citation needed] This has a lot to due with the fact the band regained their own creative control (as Interscope Records, focusing on the bands more commercial side, was obviously pushing them in the more pop oriented direction of their early 2000s' albums). They are also now considered a part of 1990s nostalgia. Summer Girl, to be released on September 19th 2006, is the fifth album by the San Jose, California rock band Smash Mouth. ... For the band, see 1990s (band). ...


It is rumoured that Smash Mouth's new unreleased album Old Habits will be much more like the Ska Punk on Fush Yu Mang and The East Bay Sessions and the Alternative Rock from Astro Lounge.


Musical style and influences

Smash Mouth's style and musical influences are a matter of debate by fans. Most people who only know the band's hit singles often label them as a '60s rip off pop band, however, the material on the band's albums is much more musically diverse. The 1960s decade refers to the years from January 1, 1960 to December 31, 1969, inclusive. ...


Most fans consider them to be a "transforming" band who changes styles from album to album. Fush Yu Mang, in most people's eyes, was mostly ska/rock with the exception of "Walkin' on the Sun", which earned the band their reputation as a "'60s rip-off band".


Astro Lounge was by far Smash Mouth's softest release. It featured space age/techno influences as well as sticking to a '60s throwback style. It also had some surf music influences. In a 2007 article on the blog Conclusive Sardines it was hailed as one of the "Most underrated band of our time and hopes that the next album will cure cancer to all the cleft lip children of India." Surf music is a genre of popular music associated with surf culture. ...


Their self-titled CD was basically a mix of everything the band had previously done, some pop songs, some retro, some space agey, as well as a slight return to their punk influences on "Shoes n' Hats" and "Your Man". However, "I'm a Believer" furthered the belief that they were a '60s rip-off band. Punk Rock is an anti-establishment music movement that began about 1976 (although precursors can be found several years earlier), exemplified by The Ramones,the Misfits, the Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Damned. ...


Get the Picture was mostly a surf/pop/rock album, with most songs having surf influences to degrees no previous Smash Mouth album had. "New Planet" was somewhat punk, "Hot" bordered heavy metal, but Get the Picture? was considered the band's most surf influenced album and had Greg Camp playing in a Dick Dale-esque guitar style for most of the songs. “Heavy metal” redirects here. ... This article is about the surf guitarist. ...


Overall, the band points a good deal of their influence to most classic rock, as well as Elvis Presley, Van Halen, The Beatles, punk acts such as Buzzcocks and The Clash, and surf acts like The Beach Boys and Dick Dale. However, Steve Harwell claims "I don't care what you call us, I just want to be considered Smash Mouth." For the magazine, see Classic Rock (magazine). ... “Elvis” redirects here. ...
