St. Louis, MO – The pop group Smash Mouth will not help St. Louis celebrate the Fourth of July. Organizers have canceled the show just a week after booking them.

They say lead singer Steve Harwell offended Enterprise Rent-A-Car workers at a private party in Orlando this month. The Post-Dispatch says he called them obscene names.

St. Louis-based Enterprise is sponsoring the fair's air show this year. A replacement act will be named.
