Dagnabbit. I can't help it. I know they're cheesy as hell, but I just think Smash Mouth make cute 'choons.
Here's your chance to come out of the closet and admit you dig them.
Either that, or you can compare them to their cross town rivals Sugar Ray.

they're both just about better than being smashed in the mouth by Sugar Ray (Leonard)

'All Star' is in Shrek. Shrek is a good film.

"Walking on the Sun" had a great keyboard riff (whom I'm told they stole from someone else)

Sugar Ray made a lyrical allusion to Killing Joke's "Sanity" in "Fly" (by their own admission, I didn't pick that out on my own). And "When it's Over" is a perfectly acceptable pop song. Moreover, Mark McGrath is a serious music dork (ever seen him clean up on "Rock'n'Roll Jeopardy" on Vh1?), so respect is due.

Smashmouth are the OC XTC

This is woefully incorrect.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Tuesday, 14 September 2004 16:27 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Good:

"Walking On the Sun", see also "All-Star"
"Fly"

Bad:

That blasted "Do It Again" remake
Singles that tried to recreate the groove and success of "Fly", with the possible exception of "Every Morning"

Alex cut the hyperbolic bullshit and tell me how "Statue Of Liberty," "Are You Deceiving Me" and "Life Begins At The Hop" are drastically different from "Walking On The Sun," "Till The Morning Comes," and "Can't Get Enough Of You, Baby."

manthony m1cc1o (Anthony Miccio), Tuesday, 14 September 2004 16:33 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Alex, not to derail things, but where do you stand on Oranges & Lemons-era XTC? I think "Mayor Of Simpleton" is absolutely fantastic.

Tantrum The Cat (Tantrum The Cat), Tuesday, 14 September 2004 16:33 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

For a start, "Can't Get Enough of You Baby" is a FUCKING COVER. Secondly, at their time XTC were WILDLY ORIGINAL, which is an accusation you could NEVER level at fuckin' Smashmouth. I'm not saying Smashmouth sucks, but they are NOWHERE NEAR the INARGUABLE GENIUS (to say nothing of superior musicianship) of XTC. This is not hyperbole.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Tuesday, 14 September 2004 16:34 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Smashmouth's singles were great, except for "All-Star". I friggin' hate that song. BUt for some reason I really LIKED all the other singles: "Walking On the Sun", the "Can't Get Enough of You Baby" remake -- that song always sounds good, and um, "Digging Your Scene" -- was that a single? I can't remember. It used to get played in all the time in this bar I used to go to, though. It's a complete rip-off of a Seeds song, though (but it's not a Blow Monkeys cover.) Like, a carbon-copy. Probably why I like it.

I love Oranges & Lemons. It's after Nonesuch that they lost me.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Tuesday, 14 September 2004 16:35 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

ok replace "Can't Get Enough" with "All Star" and answer the question I put forth, Alex. One might be "wildly original" but they still sound the same (the Smashmouth guy has a little more rasp and the production is more modern). Though if they didn't get the organ sound on "Walking On The Sun" from Barry Andrews than they probably got it from wherever Barry Andrews did (which cuts down on the wildly original notion).

manthony m1cc1o (Anthony Miccio), Tuesday, 14 September 2004 16:38 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Anthony, if we ever meet, and I'm holding a beer, you're going to fucking wear it. How DARE you compare these two bands.

I think the "Walking ON the Sun" keyb life was from Perez Prado, actually (not fucking Barry Andrews, who plays with more stealth and skill than those slackjaws in Smashmouth could ever fuckng muster).

ah, "Tripmaker" is the Seeds song that "Digging Your Scene" copies. I just double-checked. And I'm glad that I did, because any excuse to listen to Web of Sound is a good'un.

Even at XTC's least inspired (maybe "My Weapon" on Go 2, which I still love) they are still A THOUSAND TIMES more innovative, imaginative and original than Smashmouth.

Smashmouth: "Walking on the Sun" made me to dig out old Psychedelic Furs albums. Fell in love all over again with "Imitation of Christ" and others.

Sugar Ray: second the McGrath music dork comment. Like Sugar Ray or not, after seeing some r&r celebs left clueless on R&R Jeopardy, it was a pleasure seeing McGrath come across as an obvious music fan.

Chris Hill (Chris Hill), Tuesday, 14 September 2004 16:56 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

innovative, imaginative and original

wanna back that shit up, dude? Have you heard a Smashmouth album? What is SO innovative, imaginative and original about XTC and what so NOT about Smashmouth? Use nouns please.

manthony m1cc1o (Anthony Miccio), Tuesday, 14 September 2004 16:58 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Smashmouth's singles are terrible, but the rest of their album material is actually superior and underrated.. that lead singer guy actually belts out some pretty good singing (and not in that Brad Nowell way either), as opposed to his nasal drone on the hit songs.

XTC were a frenetic Beefheart influenced pop-punk band who were quite original in many ways, then became Beach Boys/Beatles/psych influenced orchestral AOR pop. Also, Andy's and Colin's vocal timbre couldn't be further from Smashmouth singer guy's (Steve Harwell?).

Smashmouth are a decent 90s pop rock band with awful singles, the best of which ("Walking on the sun") rips off that one Perry & Kingsley song that begins one of their greatest hits collections.

XTC = Smashmouth or Sugar Ray just doesn't compute at all, Anthony. And I say this without actively hating either band.

Hell, XTC have far more in common with Sublime than the above.

OAH SEA BICH, Tuesday, 14 September 2004 16:59 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

sigh. AGAIN. Play "Statue Of Liberty." Play "Walking On The Sun." Play "This Is Pop." Play "Till The Morning Comes." Play "Life Begins At The Hop." Tell me what's so goddamn different. And don't throw irrelevant terms like "orginality" in there. I'm talking about what you hear.

Sugar Ray had a song on the old Road Rage 3 (Playstation) soundtrack called "The Club" that was funnier than fuck. It had this ridiculously sped up bit wherein Mark McGrath did a very-much-uncharacteristic high-pitched hooooooo that is seriously one of the funniest (intentionally so, mind ye) things I've ever heard in a song in my life.

I will have to d/l Tripmaker -- I like Diggin' Your Scene, too. My great vision for its video plays in my mind every time I hear it

comme personne (common_person), Tuesday, 14 September 2004 17:09 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

The lyrics for "The Club" were remarkably (and effectively) simple:

hey! you can do it!
hey! or they can do it to you!
hey! you can do it!
hey! or you can do it
HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
everybody get the club

In a game where you ride on a motorcycle and beat fellow cyclists with implements like cattle prods, lead pipes, and, of course, THE CLUB.

Have you heard a Smashmouth album?

Yes, I have Fush You, Mang. Largely yawny Cali rock with makes the Surf Punks first record sound like No New York.

XTC, by contrast, took the adrenaline and aggression of Brit Punk and Ska and fused it into an entirely original hiccupy style that many have attempted to replicate (from Oingo Boingo through Skeleton Key), but have never matched. They also bothered to write amazing songs in the process.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Tuesday, 14 September 2004 17:12 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

A lot of Smashmouth's album tracks are disposable. It's their inevitable hits album that I think will sound like Waxworks.

Mark McGrath made clear on some I Love The Whatever show that he can drop all the original Pretenders' names at the drop of a hat.

that doesn't quite capture how he responded. he responded by having a 5-minute-long meltdown/tirade, all caught on camera, that suggests he's a lot less secure with himself than the average pop star. the heckler won that encounter easily.

In June 2011, a writer at Something Awful offered $20 if the band's lead singer, Steve Harwell, would eat 24 eggs. Others on the site and on Twitter began offering additional sums, eventually targeted to various charities. In July 2011, Harwell accepted the challenge if fans could gather pledges of $10,000 for St. Jude's Children's Hospital. The fundraising goal was reached in less than a week's time. A self-styled "reality TV fan," Harwell requested that his friend celebrity chef Guy Fieri prepare the eggs. The event was held at Johnny Garlic's restaurant, in Dublin, California on October 11, 2011. With about 150 people attending, Harwell was able to finish the eggs with the help of audience members as well as the San Jose Sharks mascot, Sharkie. $15,000 was raised for charity.

I kinda have a fondness for Mark McGrath, he's got this Nic Cage-like thing about him where he can't say no to anything and he does it all with the same coke-driven intensity. He did a Sharknado movie (as a main character, no less!), he joined a weird Christmas band, and now he's palling around with Mike Love for some reason. All this stuff is awful but still, good on him. There's a video of "The Beach Boys" playing "Do It Again" in front of the Capitol and at one point he puts his arm around Mike Love, points to him and says "THAT'S MIKE LOVE!!" (his mic isn't on but you can lip-read this easily). Where else you gonna get that sort of enthusiasm for something so mind-blowingly awful?
