Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to HeavenHole Pretty On The InsideL7 Bricks Are HeavyAs with bands like Babes In Toyland and Hole, L7 managed to find success by adding in their female rage and angst into straight forward grunge music.
However unlike their peers they execute it with a more metal influenced sound and try to stear away from simple punk rock power chord progessions by adding in guitar solos and heavier metal guitar riffs.

Although they do have the trademark pop punk attributes they sound much more grunge and metal influenced which, topped off with the catchy pop punk melodies, makes a great and interesting sound.
With Ignition, The Offspring have not reached their peak yet and still sound very new and amatuerish, although if anything that makes the album more pleasing since it has a raw edge to it which was lost on later albums.

However behind the layers of off key singing, distorted guitars and terrible sound production lies very good potential for song writing which was shown on 1991's Nevermind and if one is dedicated enough to sit through the whole record then they will discover that it is more enjoyable than the musicianship shows.
