Smash Mouth Singer Freaks Out on Crowd [Video]
Smash Mouth had a couple of good tunes in the late '90s and early '00s. They're still out there doing their thing. Over the weekend, singer Steve Harwell freaked out on a Fort Collins, Colorado audience (NSFW).
The band was performing at Taste of Fort Collins, where food was plentiful. In fact, some of the vendors were so generous, they were giving out free bread. It turns out, loaves of bread make terrific projectiles.
As the band began to perform their hit 'All Star', Harwell decided he'd had enough. He launched into an expletive laden rant, attempted to pick a fight with a member of the audience he suspected of hurling bread at him.
The folks at Stereogum were kind enough to transcribe the outburst (bad language alert):
You throw one more piece of shit on fuckin’ stage, I’m gonna come find your ass, I’m gonna beat your ass, whoever the fuck you are out there. You wanna be a badass? Come up here. Come on. Come be a badass up here. Come on! Come onstage! Come onstage, badass! Come on! Come onstage! You bring your ass onstage, whoever’s throwing shit at me! I’ma tell you right now, I will beat the fuck out of you. OK? You’re a pussy punk bitch. OK? You’re ruining the show for thousands of people right now. Because I’m going to walk offstage, and guess what? You’re paying for it, motherfucker. OK? Come on, somebody throw one more thing at me right now! I’m gonna find you. If you’re a man and you throw something at me right now, I’m gonna walk out there, and I’m gonna beat the fucking shit out of you. You little pussy bitches. Little pussy bitches.
