When not being pelted by bread, it seems that the members of ’90s hit-makers and Guy Fieri mood board mainstays Smash Mouth enjoy kicking back to the music of Brooklyn indie rock kings Parquet Courts. As Exclaim points out, last week Smash Mouth’s account tweeted at a probably fake Parquet Courts account on Twitter in praise of Human Performance single “Berlin Got Blurry.”

When prompted for more information yesterday, Smash Mouth HQ also offered some savvy musical analysis, summarizing Parquet Courts’ sound as “Ramones meets Joe Jackson.”
