Smash Mouth, a band from San Jose, California, became a band in 1994. Their name comes from a more traditional style of football offense, which often results in a higher time of possession. That is certainly what the band is doing, selling fans not only on original music, such as Walkin’ on the Sun and All Star, but revamps of other groups’ hits. Included in that segment are such songs as ‘I’m a Believer, done by The Monkees, I Wanna Be Like You, done by the Sherman Brothers, and The Beatles’ Getting Better.
The official Smash Mouth site, http://www.smashmouth.com/ , is not active as of today. However, the band is active, on tour, and their My Space site indicates fans are expecting an album to be released this year.
