Another band here that has gotten a little more irritating as time went on and they faced the "aging guys trying to follow the same musical formula" syndrome... but a band I can't help but still have a liking towards for the classic material they put out in the past. Getting the negative out of the way -- in the 2000's and beyond, a combination of cleaner production and generic song formulas led me to get annoyed easily when hearing Dexter's snotty voice on tracks like "You're Gonna Go Far Kid", "Original Prankster", and "Hit That"... to me, post-2000 Offspring made me think of immature songs that middle schoolers would be into. (The recent "Days Go By" was a nice change for them, though.) However, when I want to give this band validity again, all I have to do is put in 1994's Smash, a 90s punk classic, or 1997's Ixnay and 1998's Americana, all solid albums that I grew up on. The 90s were simply the Offspring's prime, and those albums don't make you wince at the blandness that came about as they got older, yet tried to make hokey pop-punk songs for the same demographic. Despite a downgrade into mediocrity, I'll still give them a thumbs up on the strength of past alone.

I agree with Chad Freet. The Offspring have gotten progressively worse and have become a parody of themselves. With all their hokey songs you would expect a fun live show, but they are incredibly boring to watch. Singer Dexter Holland barely moves from his stance and their is very minimal audience participation. My favorite record of The Offspring is 'Conspiracy of One' ... avoid everything post 2000!

I used to LOOOVE the Offspring. I can listen to that Ignition cd over and over and over again. Oh, and that "Gone Away" song - awesome. And then something happened and someone told them they had to start making weird pop music ("Fly for a White Guy", "Why Don't You Get A Job?") and I lost interest. And so did everyone else. Nothing will ever be as good as they were in their heyday, but that new "Days Gone By" song is a step in the right direction. It's too bad though - such an awesome time period for music, I wish The Offspring would have kept delivering fun punky mosh pit songs.
