    Americana is perfect outside of Feelings. But hell, even that is on purpose.
  5. Pretty easy one for me.

    I think Smash, then Americana and then it's a toss up from there with Ixnay and Ignition vying for the 3rd spot

    Ixnay for me.

    Pretty integral part of my youth.

    Then Ignition, Smash, Self Titled and then all the others.

    I still listen to certain songs from Smash, Ixnay in my regular rotation and a song or two from Americana.

    I really can’t save I’ve listen to much since though because I wasn’t into the joke thing. I’m sure I missed out on some good some though.

    Americana, but I like at least 2/3 of every record

    The run of Smash -> Ixnay -> Americana is fantastic

    I recommend listening to their albums Smash and Ixnay on the Hombre.

    For me it's Ignition -> Smash -> Ixnay

    American loses a couple points for Pretty Fly

    I listened to those first three records quite a bit, but Pretty Fly was just so gimmicky.

    Best to worst: Ixnay On The Hombre, Smash, Americana, Conspiracy Of One, Ignition, Splinter, Rise & Fall Rage & Grace, Days Go By, self-titled

    Rise and Fall
    Days Go By
    The Offspring (only listened to this one a few times but it never stuck with me)

    right on! Prestigious

    Americana, but Ixnay isn’t far behind. I’ll acknowledge Smash is their best album, though.

    I also maintain that if the joke songs were removed from Splinter, that would be their strongest release.

    I came. I saw. I -kzzkt-.

    Conspiracy of One

    Haven't listened to anything after Splinter
  19. amorningofsleep

    I came. I saw. I -kzzkt-.

    I give it a pass only because we got a Weird Al song out of it.

    Half of Rise and Fall is worth your time for sure

    It’s funny because even the original song feels like parody, but it’s not. Then you have a really good song on there like The Kids Aren’t Alright which is a current social commentary.

    Americana. Bought it when it came out because I liked Pretty Fly... and thought it was the heaviest thing I’d ever heard. I hadn’t listened to much guitar stuff outside of UK indie, so it probably was
  25. I always liked Americana buts its pretty difficult to listen to given how out of tune the vocals/harmonies are on it.
