The Offspring

The Offspring preserve the essential ingredients of their chosen genre--guitars grinding out three chords, shouted vocals, and plenty of vitriol--and layer them over a melodic base that packs considerable popular appeal. The singles from Smash, the Offspring's breakthrough album, still receive considerable radio airplay: "Gotta Get Away," "Come Out and Play," and "Self Esteem." With these and Smash's 11 other tracks, the band chronicles the adolescent experience with clarity and surprisingly incisive wit. That pretty much describes all of their albums, but this is the one to get. It's got more shape than their earlier material and isn't as disturbingly poppy as their more recent recordings; it's the perfect blend of riffs and rage.

I don't care what they say about the Offspring, this is a good album. No joke.



Smash got famous for songs like Gotta Get Away, Come Out And Play and Self Esteem, which became radio hits. These are good tracks but the album contains also harder and faster stuff like Nitro(youth energy), Something To Believe In and It'll Be A Long Time just to name a few. Smash is good choice!
