OFFSPRING ALBUMS RANKED - DISCOGRAPHY TIER LIST

Image
  My ranking scheme: FAV / GREAT / GOOD / DECENT / MEH - I replace the standard "S" tier with my own top level tier of Favorites. This way I can highlight albums that have a bit more personal meaning to me while still celebrating the albums that are deserving of a top level ranking. *Note: Every ranking exists within it's own isolated universe. Meaning the albums are only being compared to other albums from the same band. In this way, it would be unfair to compare one of my tier-lists for band A with a tier-list from band B. This ranking includes full length LPs only. No compilations, greatest hits, or live albums. Check out the list of Offspring favorites on YouTube or Spotify .     1. Offspring (1989) -  GOOD Pro: A good punk rock album with dark and brooding undertones. Many good songs. Con: Songs from this album rarely get played live sets. "Kill The President" removed/censored from reissues of the album due to controversial subject matter. Few great

ALBUM REVIEW: LET THE BAD TIMES ROLL (2021) by THE OFFSPRING

Summary: Classic rockin' Offspring energy is back with Let The Bad Times Roll , their first album in nearly a decade.

We all know by now that the band likes to put an experimental song or two on each album, "We Never Have Sex Anymore" is actually a swingin' little tune that will get your feet moving before their cover of "In the Hall of the Mountain King" has you and your partner doing the slam dance. A beautiful piano rendition of "Gone Away" reflects how the song has recently been performed at live shows. In many ways, I think this is some of the best material Offspring has put out as a whole in quite a few years. It's great to hear a band's sound experiment and evolve over time, but it's also refreshing to hear a band return to what made you a fan in the first place. I feel like I could put Let The Bad Times Rol
