Konbini Boy says:

My dad’s childhood best friend is Noodles from the Offspring, so I basically grew up with him as an uncle. We go over to his family’s house for a lot of holidays. It’s weird hearing people talk about their albums or critique them as a piece of art, since I’ve always viewed him as being a really normal person and not a famous musician

Razor Blade says:

Do review the album ‘Americana’, especially the track ‘Pay the Man’. It’s the most epic track in that album

James Owenetwork says:

Do tragic kingdom by no doubt,please.

HasanJF says:

I gotta give props to Dexter Holland for completing his Ph.D in molecular biology. My dad loved the Offspring so much so I did grew up with this band a lot, and while from Americana, he would always sing the chorus of Pretty Fly for a White Guy in front of me when I was little.

Just another random person on the Internet says:

I just introduced Self Esteem to my friend a few days ago, now he’s obsessed with it.

Gribble Dribble says:

You’re gonna go far kid.

Nicholas Dengler says:

This is the best selling record on an indie label ever made (not counting the major label re-releases)

Jack Brown says:

Smash is my favorite album from Offspring, such an iconic record

If you review Jack Garratt I will worship you and pray to you every night

The day when they release that new album, is the day I will come out and gotts get away from my house and have some self esteem finally.

Mason Coty says:

He should do the offspring’s first album The Offspring

I may have grown out of this band but this album is amazing same with their next two but don’t listen to anything after that…

Benjamin Thompson says:

It’s gonna be this year. Offspring has CONFIRMED that it’s the year that they make a new album.

Literally just went and listened to Bad Habit for the first time. I busted out laughing cuz it reminded me of my mom

This album, Metallica’s Ride The Lightning and Master Of Puppets, Aerosmith’s Rocks and Slayer’s Reign In Blood are my favorite albums ever!

Guy Fieri Is My God says:

Loving the throwbacks! Maybe do ones for Marilyn Manson’s Antichrist Superstar or Nine Inch Nails’ The Downward Spiral?

Daphne Samuels says:

What do you think about Kristy, Are You Doing Okay? It’s so different from their usual sound.

PunnaKing says:

Hey ARTV, you should review Red Sun Risings new album THREAD. It’s an amazing album, and I think you would enjoy it.

Jacob Bretz says:

So, if you saw all my comments disappear it’s because somehow Google deleted my account. I don’t know how. I’m still here.

Lewis vinson says:

Love this album thank you!

Zach Peters says:

It’s about time Offspring got a little love here 😀

Tyler Rock says:

I have a question about your channel. Do you always want to have a physical copy/vinyl of the albums you review? Will you still do a review if the album does not have a physical release? Because I’d really love to see your opinions on an upcoming artist that I’ve really enjoyed named Noah Kahan, but his EP is completely digital.

william binns says:

review a rage against the machine album

william binns says:

the offspring ranked

John Baker says:

This is the album I started my vinyl collection with! thank you for reviewing it Jon!

Max James Palmer says:

I never really got behind offspring I love hard rock and nu/heavy metal but I was always more of a Godsmack guy

We Remotely Low says:

Definitely one of the biggest punk albums that wasn’t really pop punk.
