Let's get this straight: The Offspring like to say they're against war, but these songs on their first self-titled album give absolutely no reflection of that. These songs are so hateful and vile that I'm surprised these guys haven't been investigated yet. If questioned about their self-titled album, The Offspring would most likely try to defend this sickening excuse for an album by saying these songs somehow convey the underlying message of peace through violence. But no matter what Brian, Kevin, Greg, and Ron could ever say, their self-titled album sounds like the type of music that would be handed out to recruit militant insurgents. Yes, it's THAT repulsive. The explicit song titles (Beheaded, Elders, Jennifer Lost the War, Demons, Blackball, Baghdad, Tehran, Kill the President) give way to the unimaginably horrid and gruesome lyrics. What's more, The Offspring can't even play their instruments properly on this album. The atrocious sound quality and awkward tempo changes (especially noticeable on Crossroads and Demons) make you wonder how this thing ever could've been released. Simply put, The Offspring suck. They went from violence-promoting militants as seen on this album to corporate sell-outs that play concerts for pre-teens. Either end of the spectrum is just as bad (but the former is obviously ethically worse). Why hasn't this album been banned yet? Songs like Beheaded and KtP are not songs celebrating freedom of speech or expression, they just exploit those freedoms. This album is not even worth the plastic it was pressed on.
