Released during the breakthrough year for alternative rock and grunge, The Offspring achieved small success with Ignition in Southern California and gathered a small following. This success would grow with their next album Smash. "Kick Him When He's Down" was released as a promotional single in 1995 after the band had risen in popularity; it is one of the few singles that did not appear on the Greatest Hits album.
