View Full Version : Worst Offspring album

We all know thats there isn't a "BAD" Offspring CD, but there is a "least favorite". The CD that is at the bottom of the barrel in your own opion.

In my mind its a tie between Smash and Ignion, why a tie... Because it's like choosing your own children. ;)

In my opinion its Splinter.
But you must be on crack or something. :confused: Smash and Ignition are the Offsprings two best albums (in my opinion) but many others would agree with me. They are definetly not the two least best. But thats your opinion so . . . ya! :D

I 100% back you up. Splinter the worst (not bad, though), and Smash and Ignition are definitely the best.

But, it could be the style of the songs. If you listen to Smash, and then Ixnay, you can hear they sound a lot different. Dexter's voice sounds a lot different, and the overall tone of the songs is a lot different. It's probably just this guy/girl doesn't like that style.

In my opinion the worst offspring album is Conspiracy of One...especially because of "want you bad"...its on eof those songs that i just seriously cannot listen to, no matter how much i love offspring (which is alot)

11-09-2004, 05:52 PM
Definitely a tie b/w splinter and co1... but i still listen to both of them heaps..

11-09-2004, 06:02 PM
for me is Conspiracy of One but i like it anyway lol

11-09-2004, 06:06 PM
For me probably The Offspring or Ignition all the others are good.

11-09-2004, 06:07 PM
Splinter... by far. Which is saying something considering Americana only has two really good songs (TKAA and Pay The Man). Co1 isn't much better either.

11-09-2004, 06:19 PM
My least favorite is Americana. It's a little too generic, but it's still great.

11-09-2004, 06:28 PM
Conspiracy Of One, but I think it's a good album.

11-09-2004, 06:37 PM
The worst is CO1

11-09-2004, 06:44 PM
for me it's co1... but in any case it's really good...

i don't like CO1 and SPLINTER
fuck pop rock

i like punk rock

11-10-2004, 06:43 AM
Either The Offspring or Conspiracy Of One. Perhaps The Offspring, that one I've been listening to least maybe. It has some really kickass songs, but then again a few bad ones too. CO1 doesn't have any huge songs, though the album as a whole is all OK...

11-10-2004, 06:52 AM
conspiracy of one is the worst album from the offspring

I would say Splinter, simply because there's just not enough material. It's a great CD, but I think after three years, most Offspring fans were expecting a little more than 10 songs, If Splinter were longer, I'd probably say Ixnay on the Hombre (which is still a good CD!).

11-10-2004, 10:51 AM
conspiracy of one!!!! this is my opinion

11-10-2004, 01:43 PM
10 songs? i was under the influence that it was 13? anyway i would still say that conspiracy of one is the worst album, but i would also say its superb compared to some other bands so it cant be bad when your worst album is still fuckin excellant right? also the offspring and ignition kick too much ass, ignition is so laid back alot of the time, which is nice

11-10-2004, 01:44 PM
what?! smash is my 2nd favorite, ignition is not that great

11-10-2004, 02:01 PM
i don't like so splinter much......i usually skip half of it.....
it also contains a song that i really hate (when you're in prison) but i think that this really makes the offspring the best band cause they don't fear trying something new..... :D

11-10-2004, 03:28 PM
In my opinon conspracy of 1 is the worst album but it is in my collection of cds because its the offspring. :D

[QUOTE=lando]10 songs? i was under the influence that it was 13?

Well, you're wrong. First of all, there's only 12 tracks. I don't count Neocon or WYIP as real songs because Neocon is pretty much just an intro and WYIP is a novelty joke song. I guess you could make a case for WYIP, but Neocon...nope

11-10-2004, 04:25 PM
I think Americana is the worst but only because of Dave Jerden's production on it, i think it sounds very dead. But i love every song on it, including (dare i say it) 'pay the man'. I think Splinter or or the self-titled albums is the best.

11-10-2004, 05:24 PM
smash is fucking awsome smash got them where they are know. In milwaukee the only songs played on the radio are from smash.

11-10-2004, 05:51 PM
same in new york

11-10-2004, 10:07 PM
Conspiracy of One. When i bought it the first time it was cool, but after my bro lost it and i bought it again, it lost it's flavor with me. Still has it's moments though.

11-11-2004, 02:17 AM
splinter's the worst... but of course i like it cuz it's offsprind :D

11-11-2004, 07:23 AM
Everything after Ixnay.

11-11-2004, 10:31 AM
If I put the albums in order (starting with the best) it'd be:

Self titled
Conspiracy of One

The best songs on Splinter are probably my favourate offspring songs. But as an album it's a real letdown length wise (worst hangover ever, da hui, when you're in prison, hit that all disappointing, neocon too short)

11-11-2004, 11:32 AM
I love their songs, but If I have to choose, itīs S/T or Splinter. I think they are not good. On S/T Dexter hasnīt got good voice and I feel that drums plays almost the same rhytm on many songs. After releasing next albums is everything better and better. And Splinter is a bit popy.

I don't know, exactly.

Possible Splinter or their first album, Offspring.

I'm not sure. :confused:

"10 songs? i was under the influence that it was 13?"

HAH! You were under the influence, alright. ;) Drunkard.

12-11-2004, 06:40 AM
I'd say CO1, but none of them are bad of course.

12-11-2004, 06:45 AM
Definitely Splinter, with Americana a close second worst.

Favourite? = Self titled.

12-11-2004, 06:48 AM
The original album is dry/wack. Bad lyrics, rubbish vibe. Mind you, Conspiracy of One challenges for the title of least favourite. It has Prankster and Million Miles but even they cant save an album that has Want You bad on it. Americana was edging a little too close to concept album for me.

The best is Ignition, followed by Smash and Ixnay.

Splinter's really good though. It (particularly Hit that) has saved them from irrelevance

12-11-2004, 07:09 AM
they fist album the offspring

12-11-2004, 07:45 AM
the worst album... no, the less good cd is conspiracy of one, of course.

The best album, smash, then ignition, ixnay, offspring, splinter, americana and conspiracy

I don't like their first album, self titled. I understand it can't be that great, because they were just starting their career...that's my opinion

12-11-2004, 08:23 AM
I like CO1 but it's definitely their worst. It's a lot more "poppy" than their other stuff, especially with "want you bad," the ONLY Offspring song I don't like.

12-11-2004, 10:41 AM
I don't know.maybe it's just me...I like all the albums.I cannot say which one a like best........ Is that weird?

12-11-2004, 11:40 AM
americana for me, but they are all great!!!!! :p

12-11-2004, 11:50 AM
i dont see why everyone says americana is their least favorite. I lke americana a LOT. Its got so many cool songs. Anyways mine would probably be splinter even tho its still a kcik ass albm

12-11-2004, 11:51 AM
I think Americana is the best album

12-11-2004, 11:54 AM
after the really positive feedback from my thread on hating americana, i like all the offspring albums equally
