Harwell retired in 2021, citing his declining mental and physical health, which made it impossible for him to continue performing for the band's millions of fans worldwide.

Smash Mouth, formed in the San Francisco Bay area in 1994, rose to fame with hits like 'All Star', 'Walkin' on the Sun', and their cover of 'I'm a Believer' by the Monkees.
