This is GriffDawg checking in from the Basque Country-
Discovering new music is one of the raddest things around. Rediscovering music is just as cool. I love finding an album that I used to listen to all the time but have not heard in years. Listening to that music takes me back to a different point in my life. It helps provide me with perspective. And, most of the time, I can still sing all the words!
I recently rediscovered the album Smash by the Offspring, which is a classic album from my childhood. One of the reasons I stopped listening to this album was because The Offspring started making horrible music like “Pretty Fly for a White Guy” and other such horrible songs. After making such horrible commercial music, I became embarrassed to listen to them. However, now enough time has passed so that we can listen to Smash, appreciate it for what it is, and not think about how bad of a band the Offspring became.
The album is one that can be listened from front to back. The band captured an amazing energy and the bottom line is that it fucking rocks.
I have a great idea, listen to Smash, grow your hair long, scream along, rock out, and drink a Budwiser!
