it has to be between dirty magic and get it right,depending what mood
im in. got to say though dirty magic is the one that had a impact
when i first heard the album.
kiick him when his down is the most fun to play on the drums,i think:)

My favorite has to be "Nothing From Something", but close seconds are "Burn It Up", "Forever and a Day", and "Dirty Magic".

It's weird, I never realized how much I love this CD until recently. Someone asked me "what's an album that you can listen front to back without stopping or skipping a song?". I was about to answer with Smash, but then I really thought about it and decided to go with Ignition instead. Something about this album is just awesome. anyways, thought I would share that.

Every song on Igniton is amazing, but if I had to pick it would be LAPD or Forever and a Day.

Really depends on the version of 'Get it Right'.

I prefer the 1991 version.

1 - Get it Right '91
2 - Kick Him When He's Down
3 - Get it right

Mission from God

Since Ignition is a masterpiece, I can't tell. I guess my favourite is the one I'm listening to at the moment.

Why is that? How come they didn't celebrated SMASH, AMERICANA, SPLINTER, CONSPIRACY OF ONE, IXNAY ON THE HOMBRE, & S/T?

My fav song from the album are LAPD, Nothing from Something and Dirty Magic.

Didn't they do the same with SMASH or am I just crazy and :confused:.? I'm a fan but not THE fan.

At the point they put out ignition they never thought Smash was gonna be the best selling album ever ! With Ignition and almost the one millions sells was enough to make them known in the U.S.
Two years later of Ignition and once they knew they were a solid and focused band, they make SMASH!
At least I think that's what Dexter felt, I could be wrong though.. that if Ignition never existed 20 years ago, Smash, Ixnay, Americana, etc. could of just been space thrash.

If I have to choose, two of my favorites are Get it Right and Dirty Magic.

I thought I was the only one.


My favorite used to be my username (KHWHD) but it's changed a little. I'll rank 'em:

1. Forever And A Day
2. Kick Him When He's Down
3. Session
4. Dirty Magic
5. Get It Right
6. LAPD
7. No Hero
8. Nothing From Something
9. Take It Like A Man
10. We Are One
11. Burn It Up
12. Hypodermic

If I included Mission From God, it would be number 3 or 4.

It's hard to say which one is the best but Hypodermic is soooo underrated.

I can't choose, the least one is hypodermic

Thank you. I was wondering where the love for Hypodermic was.

I love the whole album, though. I really can't pick a favourite.

3. Mission from God

4. Session

7. No hero

8. Burn it up

9. Dirty Magic

10. Take it Like A Man

Does anyone know where I can get a hold of the remastered Ignition? I haven't heard it yet, but I really hope that it's as good as I think. Ignition is one of their best records but it doesn't have the sound quality it deserves

It's great - just louder and meatier IMO. I got mine from HMV. I'm sure amazon and itunes has it too.

I'm going to HMV today hopefully and I'm going to see if I can find remastered Ignition :)

I bought a remastered Smash in HMV, they didn't have Ignition, but to be honest i don't really hear much difference...but i love the new booklet though i think i noticed there are some mistakes in the lyrics.:D

You included Mission from God, but left off Hypodermic? Weird...

I found the remastered version of the album when I was in Florida on my Christmas vacation and it was only $10 brand new. I scooped that up pretty quickly.

I find it hard to pick a favourite from this album, because I legitimately believe it's a perfect album. And in turn, I struggle to listen to their new stuff.

But just because it strays from the others, I'll go with Dirty Magic. They're all amazing, though. Burn It Up is 1a.

When I first heard Ignition a long time ago, L.A.P.D. was the one that stood out to me the most, it was different from the Offspring I heard before, more heavy, more anarchic and I loved its groove :)

But now.. it is simply too hard to choose. If I chose one song, I'd feel bad for the others.
