They kind of had their own thing going. :YinYang
I didn't like them when they first came out, but I think some of their stuff grew on me.

Not had, have.
They're still going strong. Saw them at Red Rocks this past summer with my 12 yr. old who is also a huge fan - it was a night of inappropriate behavior meant to balance out a year's worth of good grades, Boy Scouts, and not using the language that The Offspring sings about.
They still hold a nice chunk of the space on the ipod I use for running and skiing.
My favorite song is "Stuff is Messed Up"

Smash is a classic album. Not the wonderful journey it took me throughwhen I discovered it in my 17th year, but still a good spin here and there.

Really, I didn't realize it.... maybe because they don't get airplay anymore around here!

Liked their early stuff in the late 80's- early 90's. I had a vinly copy of their first album but my skater cousin snapped it up and it vanished. Smash was a good punk album. Think that's the only two I've ever heard.

I really liked their first couple of albums. Great vibe.

Conspiracy Of One was one of the first albums that got me into rock music, and Original Prankster was the first song I learnt on guitar (using tabs). They've had a huge influence on both my musical tastes and playing!
I agree with most. Good stuff that doesn't get enough attention. That pic above is great too. :)

Some of the better songwriting... great storyteller.

Ixnay on the Hombre (great)

"Self Esteem" is a great song! I dig "The Offspring".
