The Top Ten

1 Smash - The Offspring

One of the albums that brought punk to fame in '94!

The album that changed a punk rocker's life.

Along with Dookie this album started the rise of popularity for the pop punk genre.

Uh no.. a punk album from the early 90s is not more important than stuff that came before it - christangrant
