eh, I didn't care too much for Ixnay when I first got it about a year ago, but it grew on me and is one of my favorates. I Choose is probably my personal favorate off of Ixnay.

Meaning of Life is my favorite song on that album... man, all the offspring "post-intro" songs really kick ass.

Yeah, I enjoy the Ixnay album a lot. Especially 'Change the World', and of course the video for 'I Choose' is great. ah hell, all of the songs are great in my opinion.

When I got Ixnay, I was like...........whoa..................

I couldn't believe anything could really sound that good, but have variety in the music (Gone Away vs. I Choose vs. Meaning of Life). It definately ties for first on my all time favorite albums with Ignition.

Yes, it's a great song, it's the main reason I love The Offspring. I can't believe that you don't like it.

I like that song as well, especially the chorus. Best songs are Meaning of Life, All I want, Change the world and Cool To Hate.

You people are not fans. Downloading Ixnay a YEAR ago? Hell, I had it on tape in '97, at 11 years old.

Seriously: get off the fucking boards.

Being a fan is absolutely nothing about who gets it earlier.

I Agree, But if you download the album then I think your not a real fan, unless you can't find the cd where you live.

And Ixnay is a great album with only great songs on it just like every other album.
I think because smash was a hit, then people expected much and the cd after a hit is almost everytime a dissapointment voor some people. not for the fans of course

In my opinion Ixnay is there best album. All the tracks on it are great. The top 3 for me are CO1, Ignition and Ixnay. Ixnay has more variety in styles of music than the other 2 though.

Cool to Hate is probably one of my favorite, but Meaning Of Life is the best opening track also, and MOTA just rocks. This was one of the later Offspring albums I got, only about a year ago, but it quickly became my favorite.

Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine:

The Offspring may have been a product of the Southern California hardcore scene, but their instincts have always been more metal than punk. Their guitars plod along with a heavy backbeat, and even their speedier numbers are weighed down by clumsy riffs, which is evident on Ixnay on the Hombre, the follow-up to the group's unexpected hit Smash. Despite Jello Biafra's opening assertion of the Offspring's punk credentials, Ixnay on the Hombre sounds like a competent hard rock band trying to hitch themselves to the post-grunge bandwagon. The riffs don't have hooks, and Dexter Holland yelps his vocals tunelessly. Of course, much hardcore followed this formula, but it got by on its self-righteousness and visceral forward force. Since the Offspring slow down the tempo of hardcore, it doesn't have either the undiluted rage of hardcore or the four-on-the-floor groove of hard rock. Also, they haven't come up with a ridiculous hook on the level of "Come Out and Play" or "Self Esteem," which leaves Ixnay on the Hombre as a tedious, turgid mess of anemic punk metal.

WTF?! Tedious,Turgid ,Anemic punk metal?!

The Offspring (the self-titled CD)
Smash
Ixnay on the Hombre

are there best CD's imho. The first one I really didn't like at first, but after listening to it a few times it became one of my favorites. Smash has got to be the best one though.

Ixnay is beautiful. I think it's the more approppiate word to define it... it's such a masterpiece, so poetic, so touching, it's just beautiful!!!

My favorites are Gone Away, undoubtfully, and (totally different) MOTA!!!! I love that one!!! Fuck, if I ever have the chance to hear that song live... man I don't know what I'll do... I think I'll undress myself and do stage diving LOL

But the other songs are great too, All I Want is a must hear, Change The World is great too... actually, along with CO1, these are the only Offspring albums I listen from the beginning to the end without jumping any song

I think "Change The World" is trying to kill me. Guitar play in the start reminds me from some other song, but I can't get it in my head.
Please help! I'm going crazy with this song. :eek:
