[Edit]

Any album that takes its name from Scarface's Tony Montoya's favorite phrase (say it quickly) can't be taken too seriously. Part of the beauty of ska-punk garage band Smash Mouth's debut is with their devil-may-care-but-we-hope-he-doesn't attitude. Songs like "Beer Goggles," "The Fonz," and "Pet Names" (with its line "You used to call me schnookums and s*** like that") beg to be laughed with, not at. On "Padrino," a Mexican guitar prelude straight out of a Sergio Leone film bursts into a minor-key double-time rocker. While the band's cover of "Why Can't We Be Friends" blends ska and funk into the grooviest lament ever. Oddly enough their hit single, "Walking on the Sun," a gritty cocktail lounger with a cool organ solo, is the aberration here. Fush Yu Mang finds Smash Mouth at their hard skanking best. Few albums capture the energy, grit, and pure fun of third wave ska as well as Smash Mouth's debut.
