In 1997, when Guy Fieri and three of his friends released hit single Walkin on the Sun, they knew they d finally made it.

What they didn t know, however, was that they d be beating anonymous Twitter eggs over the head with this fact for the rest of their lives.

As soon as Shrek, which featured All Star heavily, came out in 2001, no one remembered Smash Mouth s earlier, less-commercial hits.

And yet—that s not enough for Smash Mouth s Twitter account, where day in and day out it demands recognition for its other accomplishments.

Regardless, and in complete opposition to any facts or sense of integrity, Smash Mouth tweets on, into the void, perhaps forever.

Update 5:25 p.m.:

Shrek came out in 2001, not 1999 as was previously stated.
