Did anyone realize that Smash Mouth is still around? I just found out that they are, and I'm gonna be major pissed if it turns out somebody knew and didn't tell me.
When I was a little kid, MTV wasn't polluted by crap like Crystal Castles. [Courtship Dating is one of the worst music videos I've ever seen.] It was still what I like to call "cool." I remember sitting on on the floor in my parents's room in late 97 (maybe early 98) and the music video of "Walkin' on the Sun" came on. That song, that video, have been prime forces in my life since then. I'll never forget the image of the band sprawled on the pavement. (And before anyone asks, I remember when "All Star" was cool too.)
I think later I'll write about my rock epiphany.
