Fush Yu Mang, released in 1997, is the debut studio album from the San Jose, California rock band Smash Mouth. It includes their first major hit, "Walkin' on the Sun". The title of the album was taken from a line ("fuck you, man!") slurred by Al Pacino in Scarface. (One song, "Padrino", contains the line "I'll take any flick with Al Pacino".) On the cover of the album is the band in Greg Camp's '62 Ford Falcon Squire wagon[3] flying through space with an outstretched arm giving the finger. The title is written in a stylized, pseudo-Asian font. The album also features a cover of War's "Why Can't We Be Friends?". The initial release was given a Parental Advisory sticker, while later releases were not.
