I think it’s safe to say that “All Star” by Smash Mouth was a major part of any ’90s kid’s life. Originally released in 1999, the song is most famously featured in 2001’s “Shrek,” but has been used in dozens of other movies. Smash Mouth themselves have become a bit of a meme over the years, even beyond the auspices of the song itself. Now, Interscope/UMe is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the seminal classic with today’s release of a new remix by electronic duo Breathe Carolina.
It might seem hard to believe, but there has never once been a commissioned “official” remix of the single… until now.
“Over the years, it seems like hundreds of remixes of ‘All Star’ have emerged, and we as a band are flattered and grateful for the love and attention,” said Smash Mouth. “We have not commissioned an ‘official’ remix to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our hit ‘All Star’… Until now. We are very excited to have such a great artist like Breathe Carolina create this very fresh and inspiring official remix for us. We are big fans of this duo and absolutely love their take on our biggest hit. Please take a listen as we know you will love it, too…”
The remix is a bright and poppy interpretation, with whistles galore and a deep house vibe. It’s a brand new way to enjoy this classic that is sure to go off in live sets. Check it out below.
