Mark McGrath: 'Poop cruise' sunk 'McGrath & Friends'

This certainly stinks for Mark McGrath fans.

The musician's planned "Mark McGrath & Friends" '90s nostalgia cruise, which also included Smash Mouth and the Spin Doctors, has been canceled.

According to a statement the cause was "recent events," but McGrath was more specific on his Twitter account.

"[M]y apologies, it's a real bummer," he told one fan. "That recent cruise fiasco really took us down."

To another, he tweeted, "that poop cruise did us no favors."

(The "poop cruise" being, as though any of us could forget, the Carnival Triumph cruise ship that caught fire and then drifted in the Gulf of Mexico for days without electricity or working toilets.)

Yet even without a cruise, the show must go on. McGrath, Sugar Ray and other '90s acts will take part in an upcoming "Under the Sun Tour." Tickets are expected to go on sale in April.

    Throw in Bon Jovi and you'd have a poop cruise for the ages.

    Wasn't there a soft rock band in the 1970s called Poop Cruise? They had songs like "What'cha Gonna Do," and "Love Will Find a Way."

    That is so gross! I poop boat? Why would big people want to go on something like that? My mom says that you should always wash your hands after using the bathroom. How would you stay clean on a poop cruise? I'll bet those people had to wear plastic raincoats and boots all the time. Yuck! It just gives me a tummy ache just thinking about that. I don't think when I get older that I will ever go on a poop cruise. I like to be fresh and clean.

    The Spin Doctors can pack the crowds in stadiums around the world. There is no sense in them wasting time on a big boat. The Spin Doctors are what the Rolling Stones hoped to be but will never be. Remember when Bono said of the Spin Doctors, "They (Spin Doctors) are the greatest and most talented rock band of all time."? He was dead on!

    People are still cruising. I'd say this falls into the "lack of interest" category.
