Remembering Smashmouth in movies like “Shrek”, “Mystery Men”, and “Can’t Hardly Wait”

Steve Harwell,the lead singer of “Smash Mouth” died this week. He was 56.

His vocals were a big part of the late 90s sound that ruled the airwaves, and many will remember their breakout hit “Walking on the Sun”.

But it was “All Star” that garnered much of the praise.

This was because that song was a big part of kicking off the ultra successful “Shrek” franchise. But fans of the song will recall that All Star was actually featured on “Mystery Men” first and the ‘super’ heroes get a shout out on the track and are featured in the video. Sadly, Harwell is the second person in the video to die recently. Paul Reubens passed away in August. The rest of the cast included Ben Stiller, Hank Azaria, William H. Macy, and Jeaneane Garofalo.

There was also “Can’t get enough of you baby” which was featured on an earlier film “Can’t Hardly Wait” starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. You can check out that video below….
