I wanted to follow up my post of the Top 20 Best Offspring Songs with a post about my personal favorite 20 Offspring songs. Some songs made it on to both lists of course, but you will see many different songs on this list. I am a huge Offspring fan and have been since 1994 when I was in Junior High School. I credit The Offspring as the band that got me into music. When I heard “Come Out and Play” and “Self Esteem” on the radio and MTV, I was hooked. Cassette tapes were still the mainstay at the time and so I bought Smash on cassette and wore it completely out! Smash ended up being the first album I ever bought. A few years later in 1997 I saw The Offspring live in concert when they were on tour supporting the follow up to Smash, Ixnay on the Hombre. This was my very first concert as well.

I have followed Offspring since 1994, going back and getting their first two albums and always buying each new release over the years. I am partial to the older material but I love each release and give The Offspring all the credit in the world for remaining popular and relevant, especially with the new release of Days Go By here in 2012. So whether you are a fan of the old stuff only, a fan of the whole discography, or a fan of the newer material, you have to give credit where credit is due. The truth is The Offspring haven’t had a single chart as high as “Days Go By” (#2 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart) since “Gone Away” (#1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart) in 1996!
