I'm the same I tried to deny it for years but I've let those pretensions go with my mid-20s.

How could you mention that album without mentioning "Pay The Man"?

Besides, that album as a whole isn't even in their top 3. "Why Don't You Get A Job" is a Beatles rip off. "Pretty Fly" is cheesy and annoying and began a trend of goofy singles that they'd produce in succeeding albums ("Original Prankster", "Hit That" [the worst one]). "She's Got Issues" has issues lyrically. "Walla Walla" is downright tedious.

As for their best albums, it's gotta be Smash and Ignition. Hell, even Conspiracy of One was a more well-rounded album than Americana was. Oh yeah, can't forget Ixnay on the Hombre - that's a better album too, and the singles are great on that one. The silly songs ("Mota", "Cool To Hate") work much better than any of the silly songs on Americana. I will admit though, "The Kids Arent Alright" is a great tune.

I've seen The Offspring live twice. They were pretty good both times but way too focused on the past - very singles focused live band. I'd love to hear "Dirty Magic" live, but I don't think it'll ever happen.

Never bothered with their discography but I still have nostalgia for Conspiracy of One after buying it as a kid. Those hooks are still razor sharp after all these years.

"Million Miles Away" would be god tier if it didn't have that Offspring schlock quality.

Conspiracy of One is a tight album (save for perhaps "One Fine Day") - "Million Miles Away", along with "Vultures" have always been some of my favorite tunes from the band. When I heard their single from a few years back, "Cruising California", that's when I gave up all hope on the band ever being halfway palatable again - take a listen for yourself if you dare.



There comes a point when their "parody" songs are nothing but parodies of their prior parody success. This stuff is not convincing anymore. It's about the time they start to progress and do something different but it aint happenin'

Hey "One Fine Day" is a banger. It might have goofy lyrics but it's not musical nothingfest like some of their other novelty comedy songs.

I just remembered that the chorus of Original prankster is my go-to cancellation tune, as in, the tune I try to hum to cancel whatever it is that's stuck in my brain.

Kudos to the poster who posted a pic of Buzzcocks Singles Going Steady, now that brings back memories. I would label them pop-punk, not in the same way that Simple Plan is pop-punk, but definitely hard edge alternative music.
the inverse of "punk is not a haircut"
