It isn't really that easy. I would choose punk/rock but that wasn't an option.

Not really, I'm going by opinions I've seen on the BBS. It has nothing to do with my own opinion.

Whoa, hold up. Did you just call Splinter pop? You are just a fucking retard. Did you even listen to all the songs on the CD? Maybe you should stop going by other peoples opinions and just get your own.

pretty fly and wdygaj were pretty much poprock, but the rest is punkrock.

punk, theres no way it should be considered a pop record, there only 3 songs that could be considered pop on it!

No one's gonna choose pop!
It's one of the punkiest albums ever!
When I downloaded the album onto my computer, I'd have it on repeat!

I don't have it. That's why I asked. Ixnay is great, but "I Choose" is pop except for the guitar riff. It's not as good as IGNITION or SMASH.

Not a single song of thiers is a "pop" song. Some however are Poppier or Poppish compared to thier other songs but not one is an actual pop song. even PF(FAWG) is not pop.

Its all relative. Americana is relativly poppy compare to earlier albums but is very much punk compaird to say Busted or Mcfly.

Btw if you only have Ignition, Smash and Ixnay please buy CO1 and Splinter, listen to them before you say they are pop albums and dont just steal other peoples opinions (wrongly by the looks of it). Oh and if you want a punk album no questions asked buy the S/T album.

All there albums are awesome and PUNK. Definately one of the best punk bands around. (I know Dexter even said himself that he didnt fell that they are punk but hey what are you going to do)

why is it, if something is catchy you instantly label it as pop? hit that and i choose are super cool catchy songs. pop is short for popular and is a soft type of music aimed at a large group of people (usually but not always for profit). i doubt if your average pop fan on the street will like splinter, i choose or ignition for that matter.


and btw... an opinion is not fact, let ruroken have one.

The thing she ment was that Ixnay isn't punk! She didn't say it was a bad album....

how the hell can you call splinter pop? alright, it has Hit That and Worst Hangover ever. TWO SONGS!!! You canīt say that the whole CD is pop just because of two songs, and the rest is DEFINATLY not pop! I mean if you think that Neocon, The Noose, Long Way Home, Race Against Myself, (Canīt Get My) Head Around You, Never Gonna Find Me, Lightning Rod, Spare Me The Details and Da Hui are pop songs.. Well then you are a FUCKING moron!! And one more thing, if youīre gonna call The Offspring pop, youīd better say why you think theyīre pop. Donīt come here saying that Splinter is pop without telling why you think itīs pop

calm down, i said it was more pop than the other albums, not that it was bad. the noose is really good, as is neocon, lightning rod and da hui. i think when you're in prison let the rest of the album down though...
anyway, how many albums do you own pissyboy?

Well.... Spare Me The Details IS a popsong (it isn't a punksong by far). And Race Against Myself also isn't a punksong at all... it's a rocksong.

I have to be on Hypodermic's side (mainly because he's from Sweden :) ). I don't think Splinter's pop. It's heavier than Ixnay On The Hombre, no doubt. I say heavier, NOT that it's more punk! Splinter is the least punk album according to me, it's heavy punkrock. And the fact that an album is more pop than another doesn't make it bad! Just wanted to say what I think.
