The internet produces very weird things...including a feud between the band Smash Mouth and FANS of the band Twenty One Pilots. REALLY.
The thing is that Smash Mouth is actually a very big fan of TOP, but Twenty One Pilots fans were not happy when they gave ALL the credit to Tyler Joseph.
One of the best acts EVER! In the history of music POINT BLANK! And Tyler isn't done!— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) June 25, 2017
Of course fans of Twenty One Pilots are very loyal and did not like that Josh didn't get the credit he deserves. And YES they pointed that fact out. Rather than just let things go Smash Mouth decided to argue the point back and forth, and it didn't go too well.
Take a look:
in regards to more hit songs. Tyler writes their songs. Not a diss on Josh.— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) June 26, 2017

Writing,.... If you look up the Credz Tyler writes everything. That's the only point we've made. It's not an opinion, it's a fact.— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) June 26, 2017
There's a difference with performing and creating songs. Josh is an amazing performer! Tyler is a songwriting genius. Genius=rare— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) June 27, 2017
accept he gets ZERO legal credit for creating the songs and btw you're clueless. Drums are demoed before Josh lays his down.— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) June 27, 2017
Writing gurus don't grow on trees. Josh is amazing at what he does, all good.— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) June 26, 2017
Wow. If you're asking yourself if this is really happening, the answer is yes. Yes it is.
UPDATE: Smash Mouth has now responded to our story on this:
Oh we thought we were having a music discussion with music fans. Amazing fans at that! #BeatleEsq— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) June 28, 2017
