Smash Mouth Tell Straight Pride Parade to F**k Off
Smash Mouth just learned that a Straight Pride Parade is being planned, and they are definitely not about it.
Apparently a group of men in Boston are planning a parade during PRIDE month to celebrate heterosexuality, and the band's response to hearing the news was "Straight Pride Parade????? FUCK OFF!!!!!!!!"
The tweet has been well received by Smash Mouth fans and beyond, already gaining over 100,000 likes and nearly 40,000 retweets.
"I guess her fingers in the shape of an L on her forehead stood for 'Love wins,'" one comment reads.
As Pride month has kicked off with various parades and events around the country to celebrate the LGBTQ community, the Straight Pride Parade organizers “feel we’re an oppressed majority,” according to a Washington Post article. They are planning to host the event on Aug. 31, according to a post by one of the event organizers and have even filed a discrimination complaint against the city of Boston so they fly their straight pride flag. We promise, we aren't making this up and you can see the Facebook post below.
We'd like to take this time to recognize the many members of the LGBTQ community who have impacted the rock and metal world. Check out this video featuring just a handful of those icons below.
