Well, we're definitely talking about the Smash Mouth singer for the first time in a while.

Over the weekend, Smash Mouth headlined a food and music festival, Taste of Fort Collins. It bills itself as a "family-friendly celebration," but it might have lost that certification at the moment when lead singer Steve Harwell called the audience members "pussy bitches."

Bread had been handed out for free by one of the vendors at the festival, and audience members started throwing slices at the stage. Harwell got so mad about this that he started threatening the audience. Eventually, he walked off the stage into the crowd, and said into the microphone that if any other people thew things at him, he would "beat the fucking shit" out of them.

The most amazing part of this meltdown is that it happens during the intro to the song "All-Star," which just keeps extending on and on since Harwell never started singing. I guess the musicians were just like, "Okay, we're going to play the beginning of "All-Star" indefinitely, and this is our lives now." I'm pretty sure Harwell only started singing because the audience sang the entire first verse without him.

The freakout was all caught by an audience attendee, who uploaded the video and so generously included the entire performance of "All-Star" for our listening pleasure.
