    Currently working on their 10th studio album, although I dunno if they'll ever top Smash, Ixnay on the Hombre, and Iginition.

    Jalen Ramsey is the GOAT

    Nothing will ever top Smash

    I've got a soft spot for these guys. Smash and Americana are my two favorites.

    Saw them live a couple years ago and they played Slim Pickens, which was pretty sweet. Favorite song off of Days Go By.

    I've seen them 3 times. 2004, 2009, and 2012.

    How were your shows? Though they were a pretty basic polished rock show, I was still pretty impressed by the show they put on, circa 2013.

    I thought they were pretty good each time. The 2009 show is a bit of a blur because I was pretty drunk haha.

    I was playing guitar the other day and played some of Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace. Decided it did not age very well. Lots of weird subpar material there, like A Lot Like Me, Rock Bottom, Rise and Fall, etc.

    I love Let's Hear It For Rock Bottom, personally.

    Nothingtown is fantastic too

    I actually find Rise & Fall incredibly underrated, it's probably my third favorite after Ixnay and Smash

    Those two are my favorite albums, I was lucky enough to see them play Smash in it's entirety live

    fourth for me after Ixnay, Smash, and Ignition.

    I have a fond spot in my heart for most of Splinter, but damn there's some awful shit on that album.

    Love The Noose, Spare Me The Details, and Race Against Myself.

    I have to be in the mood for The Worst Hangover Ever and When You're In Prison hahaha

    Same! Those songs you named are all excellent. I also really like Never Gonna Find Me and Lightning Rod. Pretty solid album, honestly.

    Dig those two songs too.

    I think my least favorite album is either their first or Conspiracy. I loved Special Delivery as a kid and a couple years ago took a complete 180 on that song.

    Gotta revisit Americana. It's been a while.

    Title track is still the bomb

    Why Don't You Get A Job is still pretty good. I don't know how that song aged well but it did.

    For sure! I think that album has stayed pretty timeless, oddly enough.

    Saw these guys a couple of years ago at a casino around here and loved every minute of it. Great show.

    Just picked up the represses of Ixnay and Americana recently. Pricey but top notch. Forgot how great they were.

    I think these guys were the first rock concert I ever went to that wasn't an arena show, back in 2010 I believe. They were really fun.

    I think Rise and Fall was pretty underrated, besides You're Gonna Go Far, Kid being played on the radio every 20 minutes

    I'll be honest I'm not the most hyped about the new Offspring album. The only reason I say that is because Coming For You wasn't exactly as good as I thought an Offspring song should be. It was kinda boring imo.
