Product Description


Yes, they (along with Green Day) finally brought skate-rock into the world of John Q. Mallrat, but the Offspring were hardly spring chickens at the time of this breakthrough album's release. They'd been slogging away since 1987, a span that allowed them to amass all the clever tricks showcased here, most notably the Latino-rap/moshpit-riff mega-hit "Come Out and Play." Just about every track on the disc (the band's third, if you were counting) keeps that careful balance between aggression and accessibility, from the surf-punk self- help rant of "Self-Esteem" to the airy ska-pop of "What Happened to You?" If Green Day are the '90s punk equivalent of the Beatles, and Rancid its Rolling Stones, the Offspring might be its Monkees--remembered for nothing more important than simple, indelible pop. --David Sprague

Fantasticpunk band blows it wide-open in this effort. Tune after tune rocks hard. I am not a huge fan of the genre, but these guys clearly have a blast making great music

this album rocks. the singles for this are the kinda songs you dont mind hearing over and over on the radio. the rest of the songs in this are good and is the best offspring cd out there. they may not be the most hardcore punk band out, but who cares?

5.0 out of 5 stars Offspring's Finest July 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
Smash is the album that made the offspring famous and its deffinatly their best work. Sure, this CD might be from 1994, but it's still awesome
1)Time to Relax- an intro, so nothing to worry about. no rating
2)Nitro (Youth Energy)- a catchy drum line at the beginning and powerful sound. the song has great lyrics that will fill you with energy. the song is basically a song about teens doing what they want. 10/10
3)Bad Habit- a very funny song that starts out w/ just slow bass, then turns into a really rocking song. the lyrics are amusing and shows the humor that these guys posess. the song is about someone w/ road rage 10/10
4)Gotta Get Away- 1 of the hits, it's got a great sounding intro and a catchy sounding chorus. the song is about someone who is paranoid and can't stand himself 9/10
5)Genocide- its got a very catchy punk sound w/ good but not great lyrics. the song is about how people fend for themselves and walk all over the little guy 10/10
6)Something to Believe In- 1 of their political songs, its about society falling apart. the song starts out slow, but gets faster and has a good sound 9/10
7)Come Out And Play- 1 of the hits, its the song that made them famous. the song has kind of a strange, but catchy middle eastern sound to it. it also has a great sounding chorus. the song is a sarcastic look on teenage gang violence 9/10
8)Self Esteem- 1 of the hits, the song has a more mid-tempo sound and is organized strangely, but has awesome lyrics. you can just visualize the situation going on- the guy trys so hard to look for love, but all hit gets is abuse. but that's all made up for when he gets sex(...) 10/10
9)It'll Be a Long Time- 1 of their political songs, it gets faster and has a more punk sound as it goes a long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smash your doubts, The Offspring Rock! June 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
Smash is The Offspring's 3rd CD(Released in 1994), and it's their most popular, containing 14 tracks.
Right around when Grunge and Alternative Rock were ruling the charts and the airwaves, a little Punk Band out of Los Angeles called The Offspring did the unthinkable.On the independent label Epitaph, they released the album Smash, and it eventually sold over 4 million copies, an unthinkable amount for an independent CD. Cruising on the heels of the smash hit singles "Gotta Get Away", "Come Out And Play(Gotta Keep 'Em Separated)", and "Self Esteem", Smash rode up the Billboard Charts until it reached the unimaginable peak of No.4. With Smash under their name, The Offspring rose to the upper echelons of punk, giving Green Day and Weezer a run for their money and making all of their future albums smash hits to. So does this album live up to its glorious achievements? Well, to put it in one word, a resounding YES. Read Below for a Track reviews.
Track reviews:
Time to Relax-Intro(Not Rated)-Sets the stage perfectly!
Nitro(Youth Energy)-10/10:How was this not a single? A perfect blend of catchy vocals, killer riffs, and mad drumming!
Bad Habit-10/10-Starts off slow, but then shifts into high gear with booming guitars and Holland's catchy vocals to create the perfect Road Rage song!
Gotta Get Away-10/10:Holland's cheery vocals perfectly complement the instrument's dark tone. Truly inspired lyrics and an incredibly catchy chorus!
Genocide-9/10: The highlight of this song is Noodle's guitar playing and the addictive chorus, yet the lyrics are stupid and it gets a bit repetitive.
Something to Believe In-10/10: Yet again, another song that could have easily been a single!
