Product Description

Product Description

Smash is a generous helping of guitar power-pop. The delightful Middle-Eastern surf guitar on "Come Out And Play" hides harsh sentiments in poppy guitar riffs. Singer Dexter Holland mocks the school systems that think the solution to school violence is to "keep them separated," to segregate rather than educate the kids about the dangers of carrying guns. As Holland advises his fans, "Hey pay no mind/If you're under eighteen you won't be doing any time." Offspring's power is in writing anthemic guitar rock that effortlessly slips from genre to genre. From the humorous ska-flavored "What Happened To You?" to the sing-along guitar riff in "No Self Esteem,".

Amazon.ca

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

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.

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!

This is one of the first pop-punk records I ever listened to, so it holds a special place in my heart. There's some great stuff on here that really distinguishes it from their more recent records. Songs like "Genocide", "Nitro (Youth Energy", and the awesome title track are straight forward popcore. I'll go out on a limb and review each song individually like this other guy did:
Nitro (Youth Energy) - great opening track, even though "nitro" is a horrible metaphor (8.0)
Bad Habit - I used to love this song when I was younger just because of all of the cussing in the midsection. It's a fine song, too. (7.5)
Gotta Get Away - This one just kinda plods along, not going anywhere. Too Nirvana-ish to be on a punk record. (4.0)
Genocide - a most lovely pop-core song (9.0)
Something to Believe - a good song, but pales in comparison to Genocide. Poor track order, anyone? (7.0)
Come Out and Play - a nice lil catchy pop song. Too bad they felt the need to repeat this formula over and over again. (7.5)
Self-Esteem - this one's catchy enough, but really slows everything down. And I can't stand the "yeah" chorus. (5.5)
It'll Be a Long Time - this song comes in and the album begins to show some life again. This is a great speedy song, and I love how it acclerates slowly in the middle. (8.0)
Killboy Powerhead - an upbeat song to keep the pace flowing (7.0)
What Happened to You? - quite a horrible little ska song. They should have just dropped this one. (2.5)
So Alone - good thing this song's so good. Speed! Wee! (8.0)
Not the One - another cool popcore song, with my some of my favorite lyrics (8.0)
Smash - this just tops the cake. "Genocide" and this alone make this album worth buying. Pop-punk at it's best (well, maybe not -best-, but Offspring's best.) (9.5)
So, overall... a 7.0
