The predecessor to "Smash", "Ignition" has sold 625K to date. Here it is re-mastered, with every metallic power chord and sing-along chorus the way it sounded in the studio. Contains digital download card for entire album.
It seems like the terms catchy and punk shouldn't go together, but for the Offspring, they do. Listening to Ignition, one gets the sense of rage tightly controlled, powering the band's uptempo, driving material. While their sensibility is firmly punk, the Offspring have clearly borrowed from heavy metal for their chord progressions and guitar sound--check out the solos on "Nothing from Something" and "Forever and a Day." While this album didn't have the major-label success of its follow-up, Smash, all the ingredients that made that record a hit are here, if not quite as refined: angry, incisive lyrics; fast-driving rhythms; and--dare one say it--melodic chord progressions. It's easy to hear why Ignition was an underground hit and why the Offspring's later records, while somewhat diluted, have been so successful. --Genevieve Williams

Dirty Magic hs got to be one of the best songs ever, its so great!
Standout tracks on this cd include "Hypodermic" "No Hero" and "Nothing From Something", basically all the songs are good but they sound too similar, that's what is preventing me from giving this record 5~~ stars. The overall sound in each song may not be as polished as the more recent albums, but their work can only get better with experience and time. Listen to samples from "Americana" "Conspiracy Of One" and "Splinter"(newest), all are recent albums from Offspring, then you'll know how big a difference there is, the difference is so big that it's like two separated worlds they've been in.
In my opinion, i like both worlds, meaning i liked their older music and their newer music.~~ This is an album truly not to be missed, get it!~
One of my favorite songs, though the profanity in the beginning is kind of hard on the ears.
We are one!: 10/10
It has some of the best guitar riffs they've written. Some of the best lyrics they've written. Why CAN'T it be one of the best songs on the album?
Kick him when he's down: 10/10
When I first bought the album, this is the first song out of 12 that attracted me to it; the first song I listened to.
Take it like a man: 8/10
A pretty cool song, but it gets boring after a while.
Get it right: 7/10
Don't really care for this one. It's just not catchy enough for my tastes.
Dirty Magic: 10/10
Easily another favorite of mine on the album. Even if it is slow, it is still catchy and chilling.
A great song that grows on you every time you hear it.
Burn it up: 9/10
A pretty funny song. Nicely written!
No Hero: 9/10
A great punk riff, and more great punk singing.
My personal favorite off the album. Why doesn't more people like this? If you like the song "Mota" off "Ixnay", you will definately like this song.
Nothin From Somethin: 7/10
Don't really remember this one. What does that tell you?
Forever and a day: 9/10
An O.K. song, but it just doesn't have that same feel all the other songs have.
Anyway, this is a great album. I remember when I first got this I thought I dreamed it, just because it was so different from all the other albums I had at the time from them. This just goes to show you that it is very different from any other offspring album.
