Shrek’s contributions to alternative are not lost on me. For one, the green monster made Smash Mouth’s “All Star” a timeless classic. Oh? Smash Mouth’s not Alt? They’re a pop band? Go listen to Fush Yu Mang, I don’t have time for you.

Donkey’s best friend didn’t stop there - the soundtrack to Shrek 2 also gave us the Counting Crows’ “Accidentally in Love.” Again, you say Counting Crows are pop…I say KROQ played them back in the 90’s and that’s enough of a distinction for me.

Now, 18 years later New Found Glory has re-ignited my love of that Adam Duritz tune with a cover off their newly released From The Screen to Your Stereo 3.

Please check it out below, that’s the whole point of me writing this.
