Cos when I first listened to Smash, to be honest, I thought they were crap. It sounded like Dexter was just shouting not at all in any way with the guitarist and bass player, and then there was a drummer off in his own littile world just banging on the drums as hard as he could.
And none of it sounded at all co-ordinated, and well, it sucked.

It wasn't until a few months later I decided to make a "best of Offpring" cd (even though I thought they sucked), that I listened to all of the songs, and I really liked some of them.
And now of course, I absoloutely love Offspring and they are my equal first fav band in the world.

So whats the story with you people? Did you like them right away or whatever?

It took 4 years till I liked The Offspring, but then only a second to decide that I do

i liked em when i got ixnay, i just loved there sound and they were the perfect surfing/skating pop punk band. i bought smash and hated it, it just didnt interest me in the slightest, exception being self esteem. i listened to it more and more an hot dingity, one day i loved it.

I liked the Offspring songs from Crazy Taxi and Crazy Taxi 2. It was 3 years before I bought any of their albums though. The first I bought was Ixnay, for 'All I want' and 'Way down the line'. I didn't like some of the other songs on Ixnay at first, but after a few listens I now like all of the songs on that album.

It took several years, to be honest. :o I listened to Ixnay for the first time, I liked the album, but didn't become their fan. And then, Americana was released, I liked the one more, still I couldn't dig the Offspring.
One time, I listened to TKAA live version, I loved the song very much suddenly, and listened to Americana again. After all, I became their big fan!!! :D
Cheers. :)

Well as soon as I heard Pretty Fly on the radio when I was 7. I think I was 7. Somewhere around in there. And I didnt start buying their cd's til late 03 when Splinter came out. But my friend kinda got me into them(rockthedrums61) but I always loved their songs.

The first time i listened to an offspring song ( it think it was orignal pranskter) I loved them. Then i went out and bought americana.

And the coolest thing happened...i just recently moved and i was unpacking my boxes and found offspring smash on cassette. wow that made me happy.

this is pretty sick but i saw a comercial on tv for Conspiracy Of One and suddenly i just wanted that album. And after listening to that i decided i wanted everything The Offspring has made. And now they are my absolute favorite band. I only had to listen to each album once and i liked every one of them. Theyre the perfect mix between great melodies and kick ass lyrics.

Nice Psycho... I'm pretty sure "You Gotta Keep em Seperated!" were like my first words lol. But it wasn't until Why Dont you get a Job (which my dad hated thanks to the unsencored word "bitch" in it) that I knew it was Offspring. Soon I learned that the "wierd song with the lalala in the beginning" was offspring too. Good shit. lol

After hearing "Come Out and Play" for the first time at a roller rink in 1994 I was hooked. It was my first time really listening to them, and it definitely wasn't the last.
