Smash Mouth Say “Fuck That Covid Shit” As They Play Packed Out Concert

Smash Mouth, who have famously self-proclaimed that they ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed, have denounced coronavirus (?) while playing a packed out concert in South Dakota over the weekend where it is almost certain that someone will contract coronavirus.

The band were playing the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally on Sunday night US time to a seemingly packed crowd (make it make sense), with frontman Steve Harwell casually telling the crowd: “fuck that COVID shit!”

Smash Mouth were not the only band to play the event, for better or worse. Quiet Riot, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Kenny Wayne Shepard, Buckcherry, Trapt, Molly Hatchet, Night Ranger, Colt Ford, Lit, Reverend Horton Heat, Jackyl, 38 Special and Drowning Pool also all played the event…so perhaps stay away from any of those for the near future.

However, not every band originally set to play the event actually played it. Willie Nelson, ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd, for example, all had their wits about them and pulled out.

“We spent endless hours advancing this event to make sure that it was pulled off as safely as possible and we are very happy with the outcome,” the band’s manager Robert Hayes said to Billboard.

“(It) had a very strict social distancing and mask policy in place for all workers,” and that “everything backstage was sanitized.”

This comes shortly after Vanilla Ice came under fire for scheduling a not-so-socially distanced concert for the weekend of 4th July, saying “we didn’t have coronavirus” in the 90s.

The concert was cancelled soon after.
