Just so you know where I got this from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Offspring#Discography

Self-Esteem is the second single by the California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California)punk rock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punk_rock) group The Offspring (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Offspring). It was released in 1994 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1994) and appears on their third album Smash (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smash). It became almost as popular as their first single, Come Out and Play (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Come_Out_and_Play). The lyrics talk about a relationship in which the girl walks all over the singer, so he has "no self esteem."Self Esteem is the second single by the California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California)punk rock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punk_rock) group The Offspring (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Offspring).

Come Out and Play is the popular first single by California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California)punk rock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punk_rock) group the Offspring (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Offspring). It was released in 1994 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1994) and appears on their third album Smash (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smash). This song is considered to be their breakthrough song, as it received widespread radio play. The song discusses gun and gang violence in the context of a school campus. The lyrics proclaim, "Your never ending spree of death and violence and hate is going to tie your own rope."

Gotta Get Away was the third single from The Offspring (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Offspring)'s breakthrough album

The Kids Aren't Alright is the third single from The Offspring (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Offspring)'s major label debut Americana (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Americana). It references the The Who (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Who) album The Kids Are Alright (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Kids_Are_Alright).The song details the ruined lives of a group of childhood friends. The four kids -- Jamie, Mark, Brandon and Jay all had the potential to have extraordinary lives but each of them ending up throwing it away in a different fashion.This fits well with the concept of the album -- unpleasant realities of American life. In this case, children are promised they are growing up to a future of unlimited potential... but in reality, most of that potential is never realized.

Can't Repeat is a single by The Offspring (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Offspring). It appeared on their only compilation album (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Album) Greatest Hits (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greatest_Hits_%28The_Offspring_album%29) It was released on June 20th

The rest of the singles don't have information about them except for which album they're on, which you can figure out on your own.

I wrote a One Fine Day one, just to mess with people's heads. It wouldn't get submitted though.

And TKAA one is wrong. Americana was their second release on a major.

No you didn't. That's the same exact words Wikipedia uses.
You can just get all this from wikipedia.

It depends what territory you are in. A lot of Ixnay copies were released under Epitaph.

In TKAA, it's not Mark, it's Marshall.

"Marshall lives at home 'cuz he's got no job, just plays guitar and smokes a lot of pot."

Nope, it's Mark
"Mark still lives at home cause he's got no job
Just plays guitar and smokes a lot of pot"
