    I was in a convention last week in LA where Smash Mouth played the House of Blue's. They were amazing! The reason I post this here is because, as every good Van Halen fan knows, they do a cover of Running With The Devil.

    As part of their encore, they played Running With The Devil. When the bass erupted with the intro - the crowd went nuts! The cheers of the crowd were deafening! The faithful cover of the song was out-fucking-standing.

    I know a bunch of you have been hard on SmashMouth - but after seeing this concert, hearing their fucking incredible cover of RWTD, I am a fan and highly recommend that anyone who gets the chance check these guys out.

    I can't stand Smash Mouth. Naturally the only Van Halen they seemed to care about is the one with David Lee at the helm. I saw an interview they did at Much Music a few years back and that's during the time when Gary was with Van Halen. They basically thought having Gary in Van Halen was a joke and that VH3 sucked. I know some of you at the Links share that opinion but that kind of crap being spewed really made me pissed. I mean who the fuck are these guys to criticize a band like Van Halen. C'mon!!!

    They're fans, just like us. And like the majority of Van Halen fans, they weren't happy about Gary being in the band. They just had a more public place to display their displeasure than most of us.

    I get a kick out of Smash Mouth. That they do a RWTD cover is an added bonus

    they don't do anything for me...maybe if they just did covers, instead of their own tunes?

    So, because they are famous and stated publicly what 95% of the people on this forum felt they are asses?

    They must like the Sammy era - or have a respect for them, as they were hanging with Sammy at the Planet Us premier.

    I'm just saying that I have a new found respect for these guys. They really rocked the House of Blues.

    I don't like Smash Mouth that much either. So their opinion on Van Halen, or anything else means nothing to me.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, especially when the glass is paper thin.

    Smashmouth sucks.

    And nothing says "Beat Me" quite like that ugly mug in perfect conjunction with that necklace he's wearing:

    Anytime anyone posts anything positive about any newer band.. this board rips it apart. There is and was cool music made after 1985... How many of you have been to any concerts of bands that started out after 1990? VH isn't doing shit so check out some other stuff, you might be suprised. What a bunch of old farts on this board.

    Being a Van Hagar fan, I agree. Even classic Van Halen die-hards who didn't like Van Hagar will admit as much, considering Can't Get This Stuff No More and Me Wise Magic were released in 1996 on BOV1.

    VH isn't doing shit
    No, they're not--unlike Smash Mouth.

    so check out some other stuff, you might be suprised. What a bunch of old farts on this board.
    Don't tell me some of this "other stuff" I should check out is Smash Mouth? LMAO.

    Any how, I remember that irritating song "All Star" by Smash Mouth with the verse: "Someone once told me/The world is gonna roll me/I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed". Since you're looking for something positive, let me just say that truer words were never spoken in the history of rock 'n roll when Steve Harwell sang "I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed".

    BTW, since you're an expert on Smash Mouth [You don't mind an "old fart" like myself presuming things, do ya'?], who was the ultra-intelligent babe (allegedly "with the shape of an 'L' on her forehead") who originally spoke those words? It's a shame the world doesn't know her name, but the world does know Steve Harwell's... And where does Harwell, one of the world's biggest losers, get off insinuating that some babe wise enough to dump him is a loser, while we're at it?
