Ixnay on Offspring!
The 3rd and last album i bought and will EVER buy was 'Smash'.
(Previously purchased 'The Offspring' & 'Ignition' when originally released)
Between 1991 and 1995 I saw "The Offspring" in concert about a half dozen times and loved every show.
Sure Brett may have been the face behind Epitaph, but Greg is the mind behind Bad Religion...
I've heard 'Ixnay...', 'Americana', 'Conspiracy...' & 'Splinter'...
I think I can name maybe 1 track on each album that are "Ok", for the rest lack that which i describe as the soul of The Offspring sound...
It's truly disappointing to see what was an original band sell out and become trendy.
Hope you enjoy your wealth attained through Columbia/Sony & be sure to say 'hi' to Britney Spears when u see her at the label's annual christmas party you schmucks.
So in parting i'll leave you with this:
"I'm not a trendy asshole.
I do what I want,
I do what I feel like.
I'm not a trendy asshole.
I don't give a fuck if it's good enough for you.
Cause I'm alive."
Hey Offspring, "What in the world happened to you?"
You've become that which you proclaimed not to be...
You've become Trendy Assholes....
