We just realised it's the 20th anniversary of Smash Mouth's "Walkin' on the Sun," a song about not being a normie or giving into ephemeral fads like soul patches. Smash Mouth never did that. "Walkin' on the Sun" is also the title of the official Smash Mouth biography, which is very good according to the 10 reviews it got on Amazon.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

This is it, people. We're officially on the tail end of the Smash Mouth meme. It's been a good ride. But while most reworkings of "All Star" have just upped the levels of obnoxiousness that are pre-baked into the song, this one is actually enjoyable thanks to its use of sounds from what remains the best edition of Windows ever made.
