mySQL won't let me do anything after a crash! It keeps saying access denied!

There's a way to force mysql to not read the permission tables and grant access to root. Run mysql with --skip-grant-tables to make it ignore the privlages. Then just check the USER table in the MySQL database. From there, you can fix the permissions and the users.
