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"

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?

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.

The Offspring have 7 albums so far, only 5 of which are represented on this collection. The 2 missing ones are "Ignition", and their self-titled effort. I wasn't totally upset with this seeing as how I only own every album from '94 and up to now. What I was disappointed with is that there are several songs from their last 5 albums that they opted not to include. I mean, if you're just a casual Offspring fan and just need 3 or 4 songs you've heard on the radio, then chances are this CD will have it. After all, all the big hits are on here..."Come Out & Play", "Self Esteem", "Gone Away", "Pretty Fly", "Hit That", ect.

But any Offspring fan could tell you that some significant songs are missing here..."I Choose", "The Meaning Of Life", "Shes Got Issues", "Million Miles Away", and most importantly, "Bad Habit". Don't get me wrong, all the songs on this collection are great, but they easily could've put much more on here. I made my OWN Offspring collection and I fit 22 songs on that included EVERYTHING on this collection and then some. So why did the record company only put 14 tracks on here? Easy, to make it more accessible, and more importantly, you'd have a reason to go back out and buy more Offspring CDs. Again, if you just need a few Offspring hits, then this should do you fine. But if you just can't get enough of this collection, go out and pick up "Smash", "Ixnay On The Hombre", "Americana", "Conspiracy Of One" and "Splinter". Personally, I still love "Smash" the most, as the band was much more rebelious and angry back then.
