Smash Mouth Singer

The Kobayashi of EGGS!!!

7/6/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Smash Mouth frontman Steve Harwell is gearing up to chow down roughly 1,800 calories in one sitting -- promising to polish off 24 EGGS ... if fans throw down $10,000 for charity.

A rep for the band tells us the egg stunt wasn't Steve's idea -- that honor goes to a creative fan who posted the challenge on a website ... and word spread FAST. 

We're told the band received hundreds of calls, emails, Facebook and Twitter messages BEGGING the frontman to take on the eggs ... and Steve decided that if fans could raise $10k for St. Jude's Children's Hospital ... he would do it.

Smash Mouth launched a fundraising website on Causes.com ... and they've already raised more than $6k in less than 24 hours ... so it's only a matter of time before Steve has a date with destiny.

As for preparation, we're told Steve will get to have his eggs cooked any way he wants ... as long as he eats them ALL.

Good for him - St. Jude's is a very worthy charity. They will treat your child who has cancer even if you don't have insurance.

Personally, I think raw eggs would be easier to get down. Cooked will fill you up too fast.

Always knew Smash Mouth sucked balls, eggs seem close enough.

Honestly? Eating 24 eggs doesn't seem like a big deal to me. Scrambled up... a dozen eggs doesn't make as big a pile of food as you'd think. I think the vast majority of people I know, including myself, could eat 24 eggs. This is a lame challenge.

That's sad about his son. Who cares about the challenge - the money is going to a VERY worthy cause, and that's what is important.
