Splinter is the seventh studio album by American punk rock band The Offspring, released on December 9, 2003. It was the first album the band released without drummer Ron Welty and also the first to have a Parental Advisory label on some album covers, even though all of their previous albums contain profanity. But the true is the song entitled "Neocon" had a lot of injures against far right Republican Party derive and the President of the US (then) George W. Bush. Although not as successful as The Offspring's albums between Smash and Conspiracy of One, Splinter received gold certification two months after its release. The album received average reviews, but still sold reasonably well. It debuted at 30 on the U.S. Billboard 200 with around 87,000 copies sold in its first week. "Hit That" and "(Can't Get My) Head Around You" were the only two singles to accompany this album.

"Smash" is the third studio album by rock band The Offspring. After touring in support of their previous album, Ignition (1992), The Offspring began recording "Smash" in January 1994 at Track Record in North Hollywood, California. Recording and production were finished a month later, and the album was released on April 8, 1994 on Epitaph Records. In the United States, "Smash" has sold over 6 million copies, and has been certified 6× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Peaking at number four on the US Billboard 200, it has sold over 11 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling independent label album of all time. It was also the first album released on Epitaph Records to obtain gold and platinum status. Smash was The Offspring's introduction into worldwide popularity and critical acclaim, and produced a number of hit singles including "Come Out and Play", "Self Esteem" and "Gotta Get Away". Alongside Bad Religion's Stranger than Fiction, Green Day's Dookie, NOFX's Punk In Drublic and Rancid's ...And Out Come the Wolves, Smash was responsible for bringing punk rock into the mainstream, and helped pave the way for the emerging pop punk scene in the 1990s. As a fan-favorite, the album received generally positive reviews from critics and garnered attention from major labels, including Columbia Records, with whom The Offspring would sign in 1996. Smash is the only release where the band was referred to as "Offspring".
