A major player throughout the post-grunge boom of the late '90s, Lit features the combined talents of front man A. Jay Popoff, his guitar-playing brother Jeremy, bassist Kevin Baldes and drummer Allen Shellenberger. The group formed in 1990 in Orange County, California, where it initially performed metal-influenced music under the name Razzle. After changing their name, Lit began embracing a spunky brand of punk-pop that helped attract a local following in California. The group sold out local venues (including Club 369 in Fullerton) and issued two recordings: an EP, Five Smokin' Tracks from Lit; and the full-length Tripping the Light Fantastic, which arrived during the spring of 1997 and became a college radio hit.

Since the formation of Alien Ant Farm in 1995, the quartet has enjoyed worldwide success. Over the course of their four studio albums, cumulative sales surpass five million units, a Grammy nomination and four top 10 singles. The band built a massive following on the road early in their career via high-profile runs in 2001 with Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Warped and as the headliner on an MTV-presented Fall Tour. In 2002, fame spread across the world, bringing Alien Ant Farm to major European festivals, Australia's Big Day Out and a headline run in Japan. The following year they returned to Europe with Metallica, and to this day the band has steadily delivered to audiences in territories across the globe.

Formed in 1994, Smash Mouth signed to Interscope Records in 1997. The band's major label debut Fush Yu Mang featuring their first hit song, "Walkin' on the Sun," went more than Double Platinum and set the table for what most consider their masterpiece, the brilliant follow-up album "Astrolounge" which boasted three top ten hits ("All-Star," "Then the Morning Comes" and "Can't Get Enough Of You Baby,"). Smash Mouth's third eponymous Interscope release featured the ecstatic first single "Pacific Coast Party" and the smash hit "I'm a Believer.” Around this time, Smash Mouth crossed over to the film world by providing the musical heart of the soundtrack for "Shrek" and even made a cameo appearance in the movie "Rat Race.” In recent years, Smash Mouth has focused on touring and entertaining troops in Japan, Guam, Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan and Iraq.
