“Come Out And Play” was released as the lead-off single from The Offspring’s 1994 album, Smash. The single was released in 1994, but it was not released commercially in the United States. Unfortunately, since there was no commercial single in the US, the song was ineligible to appear on the Billboard Hot 100 due to the chart rules in effect at the time. However, the song did peak at number 39 on Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 chart.

I was 19 years old and finishing up my first year of college when “Come Out And Play” was released as a single. I really liked this song the very first time I heard it, because it had a different sound to it compared to a lot of the other songs being played on pop radio at the time. To this day, it’s still among my favorite songs by The Offspring.

The music video was shot primarily in black and white, with sepia tone segments. The band is performing in a garage of a house with tinfoil covering on the walls. There’s also footage of dogs fighting over a chew toy, a horse race, a sword fight, a fencing scene, and snake charmers with snakes. There’s also some footage where the lighting has been inverted in the footage. This was obviously a low budget video, and it did NOT age well.

“Big Empty” was released as a single both from the soundtrack for the film, The Crow, as well as from Stone Temple Piliots’ 1994 album, Purple. Unfortunately, there was not a commercial single released in the United States for this song, so it was ineligible to appear on the Billboard Hot 100 due to the chart rules that were in place at the time. However, the song did peak at number 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart.

I was 19 years old and about to finish my first year of college when “Big Empty” was released as a single. I would have first heard it a few months earlier during Stone Temple Pilots’ MTV Unplugged episode on the night I saw the episode. But when I heard the official recording of the song on the radio a few months later, I liked it. There’s just something about the mood of the song, and Scott’s vocal performance enhances that mood. This is a song that I still like today.

The music video was taken from the MTV Unplugged performance. Like the other music videos that came from MTV Unplugged, it’s a well done piece for a live performance video.
