Favorite Offspring Song – Readers Poll
On Dec. 29, 1965, The Offspring's Dexter Holland entered the world and all these years later he's responsible for cultivating one of punk's more enduring acts. After finally breaking through on their third album, 'Smash,' The Offspring went on to release hit after hit. But we want to know which of their singles stands out as your favorite.
As previously stated, the band broke through to mainstream rock radio in 1994 with their 'Smash' album, and hits such as 'Come Out and Play,' 'Self Esteem,' 'Gotta Get Away' and 'Bad Habit' ensured that they were here to stay. Their success parlayed some airplay for their 'Ignition' album single 'Kick Him When He's Down' and the 'Batman Forever' contribution 'Smash It Up' before they moved onto their next record. 1996's 'Ixnay on the Hombre' brought us 'All I Want,' 'Gone Away' and 'I Choose' as radio singles. And they finished out the '90s with the 'Americana' album which yielded 'Pretty Fly (for a White Guy),' 'Why Don't You Get a Job?,' 'The Kids Aren't Alright' and 'She's Got Issues.'
The band began the 21st century with their cover of AFI's 'Totalimmortal' from the 'Me, Myself and Irene' soundtrack, and a year later 'Defy You' from the 'Orange County' soundtrack would also get some love. The band's 2000 disc 'Conspiracy of One' brought us 'Original Prankster' and 'Want You Bad,' while 2003's 'Splinter' yielded 'Hit That' and '(Can't Get My) Head Around You.' Their 'Greatest Hits' collection generated the single 'Can't Repeat,' while their 2008 disc 'Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace' gave us 'Hammerhead,' 'You're Gonna Go Far, Kid' and 'Kristy, Are You Doing Okay?' In 2012, The Offspring issued their 'Days Go By' album featuring the title track and the pop-leaning 'Cruising California (Bumpin' in My Trunk).'
