YOU STUPID DUMB SHIT GODDAMN MOTHERFUCKER!
Good. It should. Mortality is not merely looming - your young, cool(er), carefree self is already dead. In its place is a hollow wo/man fast approaching middle age, with a dwindling social circle, a meaningless job rearranging pivot tables, and a body getting frailer every day. You can count on one hand how many times in what's left of your life someone will say to you "come out and play", and half of those will be in the context of a violent crime.
I think the US chart show or something. then one day I saw the album on a listening station in HMV. I bought it on cassette and it quickly became one of my favourite albums and it's still on my phone today. I think this is one of those occasions I need to upgrade to the record.
also, I'll be very tempted to go to the full album show when it's announced. when they played at Reading a few years ago they were pretty bad, but I went absolutely APE when they played Bad Habit
i remember hearing Conspiracy of One as it came out and seeing the smiley fancy hoody everywhere. it blew me away to find out they had a whole shit load of previous albums that were brilliant.
also, it was fun going back through their back catalogue and finding all the songs that were included in the Crazy Taxi soundtrack. that Spotify playlist is still my most subscribed to playlist i've ever made.
I wait till 2 then I turn out the light!
it's mostly aged really badly but there's still some bangers on it.
Apparently Ixnay on the Hombre is the biggest selling "independent" record ever?
but genuinely thought it was terrible then. Got introduced to it by come out and play (OK-ish), and self-esteem (awful Lithium rip-off).
Their success utterly bemuses me. They seem bad in a way that isn't even subjective.
Excuse my naysaying, please continue with your nostalgia.
(and knowingly so, too)
i don't trust that age though, he was wrinkled back when this came out
Still like it tbf.
but for some reason I never remember The Offspring as fondly. They did a lot of stuff that was too awful even for me.
I really liked pop-punk at the time, but the Offspring just didn't do it for me for some reason.
It's more like punk rock.
but yeah, Smash didn't really have any pop to it
it's an LA-based record released on Epitaph post-Descendents, that's the definition of pop-punk
You at Brand New on Saturday, hun?
Playing Warhammer on Sat because I'm a saddo.
(There was some divide over Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park, my first two loves). Americana was my personal favourite. I had a hoodie and everything.
Still love it to this day.
