Death hoaxes are NEVER funny.

On Wednesday, Mark McGrath had to clear up the unfortunate rumor that he passed away…

[ Watch: EXCLUSIVE! Sugar Ray Makes Us Fly Back In Time! ]

Sheesh, sounds like a super fun day!

Apparently, the Sugar Ray frontman was caught in the middle of what might have been a publicity stunt for the Adult Swim show, Hot Package.

A fake statement touting the singer's death, read:

"Mark McGrath died while filming the second season of entertainment show Hot Package, when he was confronted by a masked gunman and shot several times. In honor of Mr. McGrath's legacy, his team is asking in lieu of flowers, fans post a Sugar Ray Selfie, holding a packet of sugar over their heart. #RIPMARKMCGRATH."

What the what?!

Soon after the "press release" Mark tweeted an apology to his fans, writing:

The show's network, added:

"This press release did not come from Adult Swim and is not part of any network PR or marketing campaign for the show Hot Package."

Hmm, something smells fishy, especially when you consider that the season finale airs this Saturday!!

Regardless, in honor of Mark being alive, we thought we'd pay tribute to one of his greatest accomplishments — and we don't mean any of his singles from Sugar Ray.

We're talking about one of the most epic episodes of reality television of all time, Celebrity Wife Swap: featuring Mark and… COOLIO!!!

Check out the hilarity (below)!

Ah, such fond memories!

Glad you're alive, Mark!
