Smash Mouth is the self-titled third studio album by rock bandSmash Mouth, released in late 2001. It is notable in that it was their first album with new drummer Michael Urbano and its release was delayed a few months due to the death of lead vocalist Steve Harwell's son, Presley Scott Harwell.
Smash Mouth held a contest on their website in the fall of 2000 to name their third album. The result was a two-way tie with the winning suggestion being to self-title the album. It was released in the fall of 2001 along with the single "Pacific Coast Party".
At the end of "Disenchanted", you can hear the sound of something crashing to the ground. Steve Harwell was recording his vocals in a large room normally used for orchestras on movie soundtracks at Skywalker Sound. When he was finished with a take, he accidentally knocked over a vintage Georg Neumann tube microphone. He tries to convince producers and engineers that everything is fine and it could be fixed with duct tape, but the microphone was not harmed.
"Holiday in My Head" was featured on the soundtrack for the movie Clockstoppers and for the trailer for the 2005 DreamWorks Animation movie Madagascar and was also included on the album "Nolee Mix" which was released to promote the My Scene dolls.
"Pacific Coast Party" was featured in the video game Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure. For this, the opening line: "Get your motor runnin', California Interstate 1" was repeated in the song's second verse, replacing: "Quit your bitchin', bite your tongue, save it for a rainy day, son" to make it appropriate for the game. It is also featured in the soundtracks of the films Not Another Teen Movie and The Sweetest Thing.
