Biography

"We want to offer something new with every album," says Dexter Holland, frontman of THE OFFSPRING.

After nine records, that's certainly not an easy task for any band. However, THE OFFSPRING have more than a few surprises up their sleeves, and their ninth studio album, DAYS GO BY, is staggering proof. Produced by Bob Rock (Metallica, Mötley Crüe, The Cult), the ...

Editorial Reviews

The Offspring Greatest Hits album is truly that an amazing collection of hit songs, from their Epitaph Records tracks 'Come Out And Play (Keep 'Em Separated)' and 'Self Esteem' through 'Hit That' and '(Can't Get My) Head Around You'. This album even includes a brand new track recorded this year, 'Can't Repeat', which will be blasting out of radios all over the country by the time you read this. Coinciding with the band's upcoming headlining of this summer's Warped Tour, this album is a must-have for anyone who sees, has seen, or will ever see this awesome band. Also includes a hidden bonus track, 'Next to You' which follows a few seconds after the 14th track, '(Can't Get My) Head Around You'. Columbia. 2005.

Wow, a lot of you are dolts complaining about the same thing. "OMG Therz no songs from Ignition or there self-title!!!"

Here's a few reasons why you should be quiet and stop giving this CD crappy reviews for that reason:

-Here's a novel idea! If you want to listen to songs from there self-titled or Ignition...go listen to their self-titled or Ignition!!!! OBVIOUSLY the Offspring have good material before Smash, everyone knows that. But did they have any "hits" or "singles" before 1994? NO. So quit your belly-aching

-This is a Greatest Hits CD. It is not "The Most Totally Favorite Songs of (insert irate fan here)" CD. Were all these songs singles? Yes. Were they all successful? Yes. Were there any big hits that are not on here? No. I rest my case.

-Some of you aren't even commenting on the songs that are on here, you're just giving it a 2 or 3 because of what's NOT here. Come on, this is not a bad collection at all. And the 2 new songs are sweet. OK, fine, your favorite songs from pre-Smash didn't make it on here, why don't you stop crying about it, realize that it doesn't matter, and actually talk about this CD not S/T or Ignition.

Just wanted to get that out of the way. I myself was disappointed at first with the tracklist, but then I realized that "Gee, most people who will buy this are big fans who have already heard all of the 'Spring's material and know what their favorites are. And they probably own most/all of their CDs too. So why...does...it...mattter?"

And there's added incentive to buy the Greatest Hits anyway. You get 2 new songs, which are both very good in my opinion. And if you opt for the dualdisc, you get a whole lot of goodies. So please stop whining and grow up, OK?

5.0 out of 5 stars A definitive Offspring sampler... August 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This disc works as a definitive Offspring sampler. You get the majority of this band's career highlights on one remastered disc, and if you like what you see here, you will undoubtedly seek out the remainder of their catalog.

The Offspring are punks in the way Def Leppard are rockers. They're a bit glossier, a bit poppier, a bit more intelligent, and do not take themselves too seriously.

Diehard punk enthusiasts may bemoan their crossover appeal, but by injecting a healthy dose of pop melody into some primal punk beats and chords, they've simply made themselves easy to like.

Offspring songs fall into two categories: those whose tempos are of such a speed that you make yourself dizzy bopping your head along to the tune ("Gone Away", "Self Esteem") and those where you cause an intracranial hemorrhage doing so ("All I Want", "Want You Bad").

Lyrically, there's not a lot of variation here...but there really isn't any need to, if you know what I mean. Why does great punk/pop have to be deep? Instead of insight, you'll get plain-spoken but often humorous or witty lines that'll have you singing along in no time.

"Why Don't You Get A Job?" is a blatant swipe of "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", with the megaphoned-in back-up vocals from "Yellow Submarine" added for good measure. (If you sing the end of "Submarine" to yourself, you'll remember the guy in the background singing..."sky of blue...sea of green" etc. THAT'S what I'm talking about...)

It's so blatant, it's a gas.

I love their slightly-Middle Eastern, serpentine guitar licks, like those found in their first big hit, "Come Out and Play", as well as "Original Prankster" and others.

The drummer sounds like he's having the time of his life on each and every track.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pop-punk Mainstays Bundle The Hits June 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The temptation to title this review "Come out and play, the Offspring still do" was tempting if a bit obvious. For a pop-punk quartet that hails from the late 80's and found fame in the mid 90's, this band has done quite well for themselves. Most of their brethren have quit, died, or jumped ship to new bands. The Offspring however, remain largely intact (their founding drummer left prior to "Splinter"). Several acclaimed independent records including the dark and wily "Ignition" and the propulsive "Smash" which broke every independent album sales record known, are considerable achievements. The fact that the band managed to hit pop-pay dirt with "Americana" should come as no surprise, "Pretty Fly" was blasting out of every stereo in every car for monthes.

So at this juncture the band (or record label) has seen fit to release a hits package. Though most Offspring fans will tell you their hits pale to their darker, faster, and just as catchy non-radio tracks, this is the album to buy if you are new to the Offspring.

While the buyer misses out on their clever, high-speed and dare I say thought provoking songs from their self title debut and

"Ignition" they do get nearly every radio hit to date. The striking but off kilter hit "I Choose" is strangely absent as well as the turbo charged "The Meaning of Life" both from "Ixnay on the Hombre", their most diverse and compelling album to date. Also missing is the AFI cover of "Total Immortal" which was a short term radio mini-hit.

But nearly all the songs that made a splash on Mtv and rock radio are bundled here for the casual fan. The brooding and hook filled "The Kids Aren't Alright" and "Come Out and Play".
