Walkin’ On The Sun
Posted on August 3, 2017
“Walkin’ on the Sun” was the debut single by American rock band Smash Mouth, from the album Fush Yu Mang. Released in 1997, it was Smash Mouth’s first major single, reaching #1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay singles chart. The song is a playable track in the video game Rock Band 3. The song was also featured in the television film Shredderman Rules (2007). This song was also featured in the television show ER during the opening scene of Season 4 episode 13 “Carter’s Choice” when Dr. Carter was arriving at work in the snow.
For the 20th Anniversary of this still-relevant, still-touring group, DJLW has infected the track with his signature banging sound. “This record was HUGE for me in the 90’s when I played nightly at Los Angeles mega-club “Club Metro.” We had an amazing alternative/pop crowd on Tuesday nights, over 2000 kids, and this song was a staple in my KROQ-styled DJ sets.” – DJ Lynnwood
