View Full Version : Whatīs the best album from "The Offspring" in your opinion?

10-25-2004, 11:54 AM
I think, that their best album is "Ixnay on the Hombre". But Americana is also great. I like these two albums the most. Any other opinion?

smelly poo in a shoe
10-25-2004, 12:41 PM
ignition... its just full of raw emotion, and they had become better songwriters due to the self titled. all old album by any band are the best, because it shows how they were really feeling

10-25-2004, 12:43 PM
I like Ignition a lot, and the self title album i really like the guitars on it.

10-25-2004, 12:50 PM
I think it's "Ignition". There are the greatest song (my opinion).

10-25-2004, 12:52 PM
I would have to say igntion as well.

It just sounds right for them

No Brakes Boy
10-25-2004, 01:43 PM
I think it has to be 'Americana' cos its was the first Offspring cd I got and it opened me up to so many different bands. It also introduce me to sarcasm and wit.

10-25-2004, 02:12 PM
musically Ignition, its got the best sound n guitars. Its simply great.
comercially Americana. The album that sold most copies n made em famous...
Id like to hear an Ignition but with Atom drums in it. That would be great for a new album.

10-25-2004, 02:42 PM
Ignition by far.

10-25-2004, 02:43 PM
Smash for sure, it's a classic

10-25-2004, 03:07 PM
Ixnay. but they are all close.

10-25-2004, 03:11 PM
i think it is americana (i have that n splinter, so it's a hard decision)

10-25-2004, 03:20 PM
It's a bit kinky question, it changes quite often you know.

Lately I've been listening to Conspiracy Of One for a long time, and I was surprised how good it is actually! But my favourite Offspring album, I don't think so. Maybe the second weakest.

It's a fight between Americana, Smash and Ignition. Sometimes also Ixnay On The Hombre. Hard to choose. But I still say Americana. Come on, it has only one weak song, "Feelings", couple of averages "End Of The Line" and "WDYGAJ", but the others are fucking kick ass, even Pretty Fly. I sure wouldn't come up with better guitar riffs, and Dexter shows who's the man, awesome vocals.

Not to mention "The Kids Aren't Alright", maybe the best song ever made?

But like I said, it changes.

10-25-2004, 03:50 PM
Ixnay on the hombre and Smash !

10-25-2004, 03:50 PM
I would have to say either ignition or smash.
If I had to put them in order of best to least best, it would be

3)The Offspring
4)Ixnay on the Hombre
5)Conspiracy of one

I love em all but thats what it would be. :D

10-25-2004, 04:42 PM
I think that 'Ixnay' is their best, but i love all of their albums. I just love I choose.

10-25-2004, 04:43 PM
Smash for sure, it's a classic
Smash Rocks :cool:

10-25-2004, 04:44 PM
I donno maybe ignation or the offspring
I have my doubts

10-25-2004, 04:45 PM
I like the old ones best i think. Probably the first album most, with the track 11 one, that song makes the album, taking it off was a bit of a bummer, but understandable! (luckily, i had the album before they re-released it! - phew!!! :)

10-25-2004, 05:50 PM
i was not even walking when it was out but i managed to get a copy

10-25-2004, 05:51 PM
All 7 of them. :rolleyes:

10-25-2004, 06:29 PM
Ignition is the best

10-25-2004, 06:32 PM
i love them all the same!

10-25-2004, 06:41 PM
My favorite is definately smash. The day I got this cd I listened to bad habit over and over.

10-25-2004, 08:48 PM
ignition!!!! its a long way better thn the rest, it flows so well and you can get into it more.

10-25-2004, 09:54 PM
Ignition and americana are the best's, both are pretty cool...

10-26-2004, 01:28 PM
i love ignition, after listening to americana and seeing them live ive fallen in love with it and think its right up there with ignition. but smash and ixnay also rock!

10-26-2004, 01:30 PM
My favorite is definately smash. The day I got this cd I listened to bad habit over and over.

And all my friends thought I was crazy and a 'silly kid' when I said I liked bad habit a few years back.

Fools. Morons. Non-fans.

10-26-2004, 02:23 PM
americana or ixnay, its such a hard decision to make though, all 7 are great

10-26-2004, 02:32 PM
i think it's ixnay and ignition these two show most emotion

10-26-2004, 02:35 PM
ixnay or smash easily
ignitions pretty good tho

10-26-2004, 03:47 PM
:confused: :confused: Hard choice... every one are pretty close...I'm going with this... and there's my favorite song from each album!

7. Conspiracy of One (Million miles away)
6. Offspring (Demons)
5. Americana (Kids aren't alright)
4. Ixnay on the hombre (Gone away)
3. Splinter (Lightning Rod)
2. Smash (Gotta Get Away)
1. Ignition (DIRTY MAGIC!!!)

10-26-2004, 04:07 PM
SMASH is the best, Ixnay is so cool also, but i will say that smash is the best for me :D

By the way, cool forum, my first post 'ere.

10-26-2004, 04:13 PM
I would Have to say "Smash". :cool:

10-26-2004, 04:38 PM
In my opinion the best album from The Offspring is Smash. There's no boring songs and it isn't monotonous. I like the intro and outro of this album. Most of the songs are very popular and interesting such as Self Esteem.

10-26-2004, 04:42 PM

10-26-2004, 04:48 PM
I don't know, they've so much good of them...

smash, americana, co1

10-26-2004, 05:11 PM
The Best Is The Offspring self title!!!
Who Will forget
I'll be waiting
and others
but Ignition very nice with LAPD

10-26-2004, 07:51 PM
i have only heard smash upwards (i intend to fix this problem) but my favourites are both Ixnay and Americana. These two albums are the only albums i can sit through and cream over every song. heheheheh.
just jokin' guys, but seriously, they are my faves.

10-26-2004, 08:04 PM
Neuxes I suggest you try your hardest to get a hold of Ignition ;) easily just as awesome as Ixnay. Two of my definite faves =)

10-27-2004, 02:01 PM
What about putting all Offspring songs on one CD, then there's no problem to decide ^^

I love every album & I really can't decide for one

10-27-2004, 02:59 PM
SMASH, no doubt!

10-27-2004, 03:17 PM
Hmm tis a tricky one. Gotta be "The Offspring"- but only the one which actually contains Kill The President. Recent presses don't have it. :( Fuckin politics!!

10-27-2004, 04:52 PM
CO1 is my fav probobly. but ixnay is definetly second.

10-27-2004, 05:17 PM
either self titled or ignition...i think i'd still pick self titled,i just never get tired of it <3

10-27-2004, 05:34 PM
Smash! It's awesome! Although the all are great, Smash is the best.

10-28-2004, 05:19 AM
ixnay or smash.
americana is shite

10-28-2004, 05:24 AM
Ixnay on the Hombre

Billy Joe(Thomas)
10-28-2004, 08:57 AM

10-28-2004, 09:14 AM
I like Smash & Conspiracy of One the best!! :)

10-28-2004, 01:23 PM
Smash or Ignition...

10-28-2004, 03:46 PM
I can't decide. All the albums are awesome.

Special Delivery BR.
10-28-2004, 04:07 PM
well.. In my opinion, its hard to say what album is the best... but i like Smash and Americana so much!.... the 1st album i heard was Americana, and the 1st i bought was Conspiracy of One, that is gret too!

Daryl Catpiss
10-28-2004, 04:54 PM
Ignition, it was the best when everyone jumped on the pretty fly bandwagon and its still the best today.

10-28-2004, 05:11 PM
Oh shit..... all the albums are very very veryyyy good!!! Ixnay...rocks...Gonne away is in it..... Smash is great!!!

humm.... its hard to decide..... I think there isn't the best....
All of them are cool..


10-28-2004, 05:14 PM
In my opinion, the best Offspring album has to be Conspirisy of one because
it has my all time favorite songs: Original Prankster, living in choas, and want
you bad. I love those songs so much! :)

10-28-2004, 05:48 PM
Recently i started listening to their self-titled again, its so friggin good. That and ignition. but they all kick ass. With me it generally changes from month to month.

10-28-2004, 05:52 PM
splinter has to be like the best album ever! spare me the details is the best track by far! :)

10-28-2004, 05:55 PM
she has a point. lol

10-28-2004, 07:35 PM
Ignition its a exellent cd, but my favorite is ixnay...... :D

10-29-2004, 12:08 PM

10-29-2004, 12:15 PM
My favorite album is Ixnay on the Hombre...It kicks ass!

10-29-2004, 12:22 PM
Smash by far, but i never really listened to any albums before that

10-29-2004, 01:21 PM

10-29-2004, 04:49 PM
Each one. That's the same with the thread "What's their worst album".

10-31-2004, 07:21 AM
SMASH is the best!

10-31-2004, 09:13 AM

11-04-2004, 09:45 AM
ixnai and americana

11-04-2004, 09:46 AM
errrrrrr hard choice if i'm in the mood for bringing back old memories definately smash that album sends a chill up my spine, however there are a few songs I don't like on it Ignition is probably the best all rounder but it'll probably change next week.

11-04-2004, 10:26 AM
All are good, but SMASH is the best!

11-04-2004, 11:20 AM
Is to hard to pick just one!!!! :confused: All 7 albums are great!!!! But I must say that "Splinter" is the last one in everybody's favorite Offspring album list. Maybe because it isn't so punck rock'n'roll as the others... :D But it's verry good! Not so punck, but verry good as every Offspring album! :p

11-04-2004, 12:17 PM
hey...what`s happening.... the best offspring album is...."americana" and also "smash"....come out and play is the best song ever... and can be the "splinter"...too..."..on the hombre"....the last of all is "conspiracy of one"..
well....todos los latinos...y sobre todos los colombians...un saludo...y porfa los quiero conocer...

11-04-2004, 01:44 PM
Igniton for sure

fairy call
11-05-2004, 07:03 AM
and the worst is CO1, by far

11-05-2004, 08:58 AM

11-05-2004, 12:39 PM
1. Smash 2. Self Titled 3. Splinter

11-05-2004, 12:57 PM

11-05-2004, 05:26 PM
Ignition and The Offspring <(BUT WITH "Kill The President")>!
Great albums!
Smash are just a classic ;) , but Ignition is better!

11-05-2004, 05:30 PM
ixnay is probably the best but americana is good and so is conspiracy oh and splinter and the offspring and smash and ignition

11-05-2004, 05:34 PM
thats really hard to choose you know that?they are all amzing.americana has good memories associated with it 4 me.smash.is a classic.co1 is amazing.ignition is fantastic.splinter is kinda.....different,but in a good way.its till them,and sounds like it and all,but its also different.im not sure.americana or co1 for me

11-07-2004, 02:01 PM
best offspring albums were self titled and ignition..they were down right punk and political and the guitar n drum work was much much better

11-07-2004, 02:55 PM
My favorite is "Americana"

11-07-2004, 04:03 PM
I love Conspiracy Of One, cause at that time I was so madly in love with them after the americana album. I started listen to them when Smash came out, but didnt got their cd and stuff, but then after Americana I bought all records that were out and then co1 and it became the greatest record ever ;)

11-07-2004, 05:19 PM
Its got to be Smash, the year they broke and made it huge and world dommination awaited has some of the best tunes on it, remains the biggest ever underground success, and still holds the best memories for me, 10 years old and still strong.


11-07-2004, 05:33 PM
my favorite has to be either Ignition or the S/T album.

@topic: Ixnay On The Hombre

11-13-2004, 04:20 PM
All albums have a place in my heart. EVEN CO1 and Splinter, which are the 2 that get the most complaints.

11-13-2004, 04:33 PM
Ixany on the hombre is my fav but there all good

11-13-2004, 09:26 PM
Just wanna know if there doing another new album after Splinter.

And Smash and inxay and ignition are the best album for there best 3 songs ever. (Dirty Magic) (Dont pick it up U) and (I'll be a long time) with the amazing LYRICS.

PS: Next time they come in Montreal im gonna be so happy i think i'll try to kiss Dexter. :D

11-14-2004, 05:47 AM
I think the best album is...."IXnay on the hombre"

And the best song on "IXnay on the hombre" is...."I choose"

Thatīs what I say, and what I say is right....this is life!

11-15-2004, 07:01 AM
From my favourites to least liked ones.

11-15-2004, 01:17 PM
IXNAY-on-the-HAMBRE :eek:

11-15-2004, 03:18 PM
I think it is Ignition (best songs, forever and a day, and dirty magic, and kick him when he's down, and get it right..... and session.....and..... you know what, they are all awsome!!!) and Ixnay ( Best songs, Amazed, Change the world, cool to hate, Gone away, and The Meaning of Life)

Jack the Tripper
05-14-2005, 09:05 PM
Americana is the best album

05-14-2005, 09:39 PM
Hard to tell :D

05-14-2005, 10:01 PM
Smash, 1) Most Effort, 2) Commercialy, made them famous, 3) How can you not like self esteem!?

05-16-2005, 04:17 PM
IXNAY..........for obvious reasons, i also like ignition..... :cool:

05-16-2005, 04:51 PM
Ixnay on the Hombre


05-16-2005, 04:53 PM
I think the best album is...."IXnay on the hombre"

And the best song on "IXnay on the hombre" is...."I choose"

Thatīs what I say, and what I say is right....this is life!

I completely agree with you! I Choose is my favorite Offspring song of all time. :D

05-16-2005, 04:58 PM
Ixnay or Ignition.

05-16-2005, 05:02 PM
In my opinion:

Ignition and smash are the best cd's from the offspring.

05-16-2005, 06:00 PM
Ixnay of the Hombre
all the fast songs make you want to dance and the slow songs are just put together perceftly with the lyrics. :)

05-16-2005, 06:32 PM
My personal favorate Offspring album is Americana, Pretty Fly being the only song I skip off of it routinely. Have You Ever and Staring At The Sun are defiantely a couple of my favorate songs by any band that I've ever listened to.

The meaning of life
05-16-2005, 08:01 PM
I think is Ixnay cause Its just Fucking Rock Alternative.

And it have my favorite song ever.

05-16-2005, 10:15 PM
Smash for sure. However this is my order:
1. Smash
2. Americana
3. Co1
4. Ixnay
5. Splinter
6. Ignition
7. Self Titled (Kill the president sucks in my opinion).

All the albums are good though, but some are just better than others.

05-16-2005, 11:46 PM
For me, its a tie between Smash, Ixnay, and Ignition.

05-16-2005, 11:55 PM
SMASH is by far the best album they ever released. There is nothing pop about it and it rocks from 2-14 (plus hidden instrumentals). Come out and Play is the first song I ever heard from them and it was in '94 when punk broke into the mainstream again. The sound they had back then was priceless, and Splinter is the clostest thing to that album since it came out.

05-16-2005, 11:58 PM
I think Smash is the best.Also Ixnay is great because it has a large variety of sounds:Me and My Old lady,Gone Away,I choose,Amazed,All I want ,all very different songs.

05-17-2005, 01:29 AM
My favourite album is "Americana": I like all the songs in it (except Feelings, I don't like this song :( ). This album also contains my favourite song, TKAA, so.. :D

05-17-2005, 02:24 AM
Ixnay On The Hombre for me, Smash and Ignition come a close second though.

Offspring rox
05-17-2005, 08:44 AM
Definitely Americana. The Kids aren't alright is the best song by them...

05-17-2005, 09:21 AM
Smash. but in about a month it will be the greatest hits.

Dirty Bertie
05-17-2005, 09:49 AM
Smash, then Ixnay and then, CO1 ... and yes, I think 'want you bad' rocks

05-17-2005, 02:41 PM
Ixnay for sure!!!!!!But there are so many good song on every record, man all their songs rock...so it's hard...co1 is very close!!!

05-17-2005, 02:46 PM
Ignition, gotta be ignition

05-17-2005, 03:02 PM
americana, take away the songs like pretty fly, shes got issues and focus more on, pay the man, have you ever, americana etc. its was an amazing album but too many people remember it for the wrong reasons!

05-17-2005, 03:07 PM
What do you mean?

05-17-2005, 03:08 PM
What do you mean?

who was that meant for?!

05-17-2005, 03:11 PM
you....so what do you mean by that?

05-17-2005, 03:12 PM
so you mean we should get deeber in to the album???ok...I get it! But I already like it...so no reason for me to do that...

05-19-2005, 12:55 PM
Has to be Ignition-it has Dirty Magic on it-my ultimate favourite song

05-19-2005, 01:15 PM
Ignition!!! Its gotta be :D

05-19-2005, 01:53 PM
Offspring, the self titled one. Atleast with Kill the President on it, I love that song. And Beheaded, and Jennifer lost the War. Great songs.
