“Self Esteem” is a song by punk rock group The Offspring. It is the eighth (or seventh, on cassette) track from their third studio album Smash (1994) and was released as the second single from the album. The song was a worldwide hit, reaching #1 in Latvia, Norway, and Sweden and was one of the most successful singles released by the band. However, frontman Dexter Holland mentioned in the Complete Music Video Collection that this song has not been very popular in Japan where people have very high self-esteem. “Self Esteem” was nominated for the 1995 MTV Europe Music Awards for Best Song, but lost to The Cranberries’ “Zombie”. The song also appears as the third track on their Greatest Hits (2005). Read on...
