About Ignition by The Offspring

Listening to Ignition, one gets the sense of rage tightly controlled, powering the band's uptempo, driving material. While their sensibility is firmly punk, the Offspring have clearly borrowed some metal for their chord progressions and guitar sound--check out the solos on "Nothing from Something" and "Forever and a Day." While this album didn't have the success of its follow-up, Smash, all the ingredients that made that record a hit are here, if not quite as refined: angry, incisive lyrics; fast-driving rhythms; and--dare one say it--melodic chord progressions. It's easy to hear why Ignition was an underground hit and why the Offspring's later records have been so successful.

The surfers of the early 90s wanted a soundtrack that matched their surfing which was increasingly progressive, fast, and explosive. Bands like us, Pennywise, and blink-182 seemed to fit that bill perfectly. We’re stoked to have played a part in the Momentum Generation which is so much more than a surf documentary, it’s also just a great human story. Check it out tomorrow at 10pm local time on HBO.
