    listening to the classic rock station here and they just started playing superstar by smashmouth- perhaps the most annoying song ever written. anyways, I am wondering when this song became a classic. anyone know?

    A classic? I remember when that came out... couldnt have been more than 8 years ago right? Thats a scary thought!

    I remember when that piece of audio trash came on the radio as well. which leaves me with two questions- when did it become classic, and how does it deserve to get played between fleetwood mac and pink floyd?

    I'm thinking you mean 'All Star' by 'Smash Mouth'.

    For something to be 'classic', it doesn't have to be a certain age. It has to be of a certain quality - and that is purely opinion when we're talking about music. So, the guy who compiles the playlist must have decided that 'Allstar' is a classic song in his opinion.

    It's not that bad of a song, quite catchy and while far from a classic in my opinion, it's certainly poular enough to feature on the playlist of some minor radio station under the guise of 'classic'.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    By classic people mean nowdays to make one song that has a video on mtv, it absolutly doesn't have to be good, people buy everything what tv sells since they invented music video.

    Smashmouth is like the leftovers nobaody liked to first time around and got lost in the fridge and makes you want to vomit when scraping it out from your tupperware.

    Since when is it a big deal? It's just a song on a radio station.

    It's always a bit of a shock when a band you listened to growing up ends up on the classic rock station.

    Smashmouth is a bit after my time though.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
