Many people know the Offspring frm their fifth album Americana, and that is their whole idea of how Offspring is. Most people I know think that is all that Offspring has to offer. The people that think that are very wrong. Offspring were a much more amazing band in the past and by far their most spectacular album is the first.
I at first accustumed to the sound of later works hated this album t\with a passion. Saying it was just screwed up killer music, the thought that they were once insane and before they were cured sucked. But now I can't help but sit and grin as I lsitento the amazing lyrics and guitar work which seems to be the best out of all their cds, and I have to grin. Let me spell it out for all of you.
The best song on the album is Beheaded, which is just funny as hell as it tells the story of a crazed killer who kills his family, girlfriend, and then just random people on the street, this song has some funnny lyrics and some very intense moments. It can't get any better then that, believe me.
The second best song is Kill the President. This song supports the idea of anarchism, the belief that the world would be a better place if we did not have any leaders. They tell you to kill the president becase if we had no leaders there is the question of who would start all our wars, and they make the point that America just seems to strike out like a frightened child and makes descisions befeore it has any info. This cd was made during the first Gulf War so in a way a lot of its points could be stretched over to todays present situation.
Anyway this cd has a lot of other good songs too, asongs about the effects of war, human sacrafice, lack of trust, lost of innocence, and many other brilliant ideas. For the best offspring you have to buy this album.

The Offspring's self-titled debut is awful in terms of how the music and vocals were recorded. The careless way the songs are played on here is awful too. There obviously wasn't any mixing or production beyond the overdubs of shouts and quick guitar bursts heard here and there. The demos for these songs are amazing compared to the tinny recording heard here. Greg's bass is inaudible throughout the entire album. This official release from Niro is unbelievably sloppy and rushed. This official version isn't even worth buying. Nitro's site lets you listen each song in its entirety as somewhat of a warning of what you're about to buy. When I bought The Offspring's debut in November of '95, and I ended up returning it because it was so bad. There was actually a disclaimer sticker on the CD that said: "WARNING: This is not a new Offspring album. It was recorded in 1989, and may be habit forming". I wish. I'm sure Nitro Records lets you listen to the entire album before you buy because customers were so p*ssed and complained that it sucks and is a rip-off to pay money for. My advice: find a place that sells the demos of these same songs; they're awesome, and the playing is what you expect from The Offspring. The demo compilation I'm recommending includes "Out on Patrol" and "Jennifer Lost the War" (from the 7-inch record 'They were born to Kill'), and "I'll Be Waiting" and "Blackball" from their first 7-inch vinyl from 1986, and demo versions of Ignition's Get It Right and Take It Like a Man. A demo for "Beheaded" is on there too. It's a shame the songs on the official release from Nemesis Records weren't performed as good as the demo versions.Read more ›

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.
