A look back at Smash Mouth’s formative years shows a band determined to make an impact from the beginning. Formed in late 1994, the band immediately began recording demos and showcasing in both San Jose and Hollywood. In June 1997, Smash Mouth was signed to Interscope Records when label brass caught wind of an unknown (and unsigned) band being added to monumentally influential L.A. radio station KROQ’s playlist after only one spin of their song “Walkin’ On The Sun.”
Smash Mouth’s major-label debut, “Fush Yu Mang,” went more than double platinum and set the stage for what most consider their masterpiece, 1999’s brilliant follow-up album “Astrolounge.” Boasting three top-10 hits (“All-Star,” “Then The Morning Comes,” “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”), sales for “Astrolounge” nearly doubled those for “Fush Yu Mang,” approaching nearly quadruple platinum status.
In 2022, Grammy-nominated Smash Mouth is introducing Goode as a perfect match for the band’s beach brand of high-energy alt-pop.
