Thousands of bikers showed up to Sturgis, South Dakota this weekend to watch Smash Mouth in concert despite the fact that we’re still in the middle of a pandemic.

The band headlined the Sturgis Buffalo Chip, a multiday festival that brings hundreds of thousands of people each year and is set to feature several other bands in the upcoming days including Trapt, Buckcherry, Drowning Pool, Night Ranger, Reverend Horton Heat, Lit, 38 Special, Quiet Riot, and Big Skillet.

Pictures and videos on social media of the band’s set show that most people in attendance weren’t wearing masks or practicing social distancing.

During Smashmouth’s performance frontman Steve Harwell went on to shout “Now, we’re all here together tonight … Fuck that COVID shit!”

The jokes were pretty obvious for this one.
