Offspring started off really well and sort of got worse as time went on. Americana was certainly a downturn.
Great song - most of Smash is excellent. Here are some of my choice cuts from the band:









"Hammerhead" is the best song they've made in the last 10 years.

"Way Down the Line" is probably still my all time favorite Offspring song.

Smash, Ignition, and Conspiracy of One are their most consistent albums - but Ixnay on the Hombre is probably their most fun album.

"Come Out and Play" is such a lame song though. "You gotta keep 'em separated!" is one of the ****tiest interjections in a song ever.

Not going to argue with that - but certainly better than "Give it to me baby...UH HUH UH HUH!"

The Offspring, even at their most melodic and commercial, could construct a good hook and hit it out of the park occasionally. Though I could see why people wouldn't like this era of Offspring for the same reasons people don't like early Fall Out Boy or Rise Against.


Rise Against is really good too now that I think about it.

I dislike most punk, but I love The Offspring's 80's and 90's stuff. Their debut is amazing:


I agree that Americana was the beginning of the end, but it's worth owning if only for this masterpiece of a song:

It's been years since I heard it so I don't know about that sound anymore but it used to be hella fun.

No album is worth buying for a single song tbh. Not bad though.

^Definitely not worth seeking out to buy it, I more meant that it's worth picking up if at a thrift store or something like that. I should have been more clear.
