I ran over the Offspring article on Wikipedia after ages; there was this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smash_%28album%29#Accolades).

The UK mag Kerrrrrrrramng!!!!!!!111111!1 made two lists both in 1998 entitled "50 Greatest Punk Albums Ever" and "50 Most Influential Albums Of All Time", and they placed our most meritorious and beloved band in the 5th.

There's something sour about this. If it's the fifth most influential album of all time, then it's pretty much the greatest punk album ever.


P.S. I like the Exposure list.

I don't think I could ever take anything written in that sort of manner seriously in any way, shape, or form.

Yeah but if you check out the link to the latter list, you find out that on fifth position is actually Dookie instead of Smash, there must be something wrong..

According to that site the Wikipedia article refers to, Smash is the 1532nd best album of all time. Pretty good.

Come Out and Play is the 1793th best song, and Self Esteem the 2821st.

normally these "iconic" lists are made up of people sending their votes in. bascially some people choose to write in as many times as they can whereas other people dont bother so the results can be taken with a pinch of salt!
