Nineties rockers Smash Mouth are known for Shrek, “All-Star,” and threatening to beat fans for throwing bread at them. But they’ve now entered new territory with their recent song, “Love Is a Solider,” which debuted earlier this month.

Here, Smash Mouth takes on EDM with help from DJ Specter. The song starts off with a beat that could easily soundtrack one of Kirsten Dunst’s high school movies (more Get Over It than Bring It On), but quickly gives way to become an Avicii rip-off with female “oooohs” and a predictable beat drop. Also, the lyrics are, “Love is a solider/ Sex is a gun/ You’re ammunition.”
