'Walkin' on the Sun' to 'All Star': The top Smash Mouth songs ranked

With music featured in "Shrek" and "Rat Race," Smash Mouth sold over 10 million albums worldwide under late vocalist Steve Harwell.

BOISE, Idaho — Smash Mouth singer Steve Harwell died Monday at age 56 after entering hospice care at his home, according to multiple outlets.  

The New York Times and Rolling Stone both reported that Harwell died Monday, several days after entering hospice to prepare for his end of life. 

Band manager Robert Hayes told Rolling Stone that Harwell died at his Boise, ID home "surrounded by family and friends," and "passed peacefully and comfortably." 

"Steve’s iconic voice is one of the most recognizable voices from his generation," Hayes told Rolling Stone. "He loved the fans and loved to perform. Steve Harwell was a true American Original. A larger than life character who shot up into the sky like a Roman candle.

"Steve should be remembered for his unwavering focus and impassioned determination to reach the heights of pop stardom. And the fact that he achieved this near-impossible goal with very limited musical experience makes his accomplishments all the more remarkable. His only tools were his irrepressible charm and charisma, his fearlessly reckless ambition, and his king-size cajones. Steve lived a 100 percent full-throttle life. Burning brightly across the universe before burning out."
