whats wrong with you people? ys no one ever talk about the original offspring cd, do you guys not lsiten to it, or just think it sucks? I first got hooked on offspring with smash, and aside from smash its probably my favorite (even though the singing is as.....refined as it could be) its got great absolutely original content.
We can all agree taht Gone Away (Ixnay) is amazing, but what about i'll be waiting tehran etc.???

I'll Be Waiting is amazing. The guitar is The Offspring's best, by far. Great lyrics too. When I first bought S/T, I thought it was complete and total shit. I thought the vocals were horrible, but now I've gotten used to it and learned to like it. Tehran's not a favorite of mine. Blackball, Jennifer Lost the War, and I'll Be Waiting are the best, in my opinion. Kill the President isn't bad, but it could use a little more polish.

If you were lucky enough to buy the cd before they took off kill the president... That and blackball are probably tied for best song on there for me.

i love the first album. Kill the President, I'll be Waiting, Tehran, Jennifer Lost the War. hell, my mom loves Jennifer Lost the War. I had downloaded the lyrics onto our family PC and my mom saw them and thought I wrote it. I wish, that song is beautiful.

Every offspring album is good, it's just that s/t is so good, it's like taking an enormous masterpiece dump type of good. Nothing beats that.

Amazing CD. 'I'll Be Waiting' is one of their best ever tracks. It scores highly in my opinion with jewels like 'Elders', 'Out On Patrol', 'Beheaded', 'Blackball' and the almighty 'Crossroads', not to mention the superb lyrics on 'Demons' and 'Jennifer Lost the War'. 'Kill the President' and 'A Thousand Days', although not great tracks, still prove that The Offspring rocked back then.

'Beheaded' and 'Elders' are masterstrokes.
First and second albums are my favs by far.

PS. Why is it the first album is reffered to as S/T, or am i misunderstanding?

FINALLY!!! I was becoming worried, thought that everybody forgot one of the S/T best: Crossroads!!!!!!! It's one of my all time favs, I liked the word you used to describe it, "Almighty"! And it's one of their toughest songs to play... just the check the motherfucking guitar riff!!!!It's a great CD, all in all, a real masterpiece, a true pearl that should be in every single fan's collection! I also love other songs, I agree with everything that was said here.

All the songs on s.t need more polishing really.... ive never gone and seen the offspring before but im goin at the end of the month, and im really hoping theyll do some s.t tracks (especially ill be waiting, one of my fav songs of all time if you cant tell). Is ignition worth buying?, i own 5 of their cds (s.t smash americana, ixnay, gh), and am considering getting it, is it worth my $20 eg almost as good as smash?

Oh sorry, I thought you were talking about ignition, I see now that you mean the S/T. Why the fuck did they leave "kill the president" out anyway? I had no problems when I bought the album... about what... 7 years ago ;)
