Happy Hour! is a Japanese exclusive[3] compilation album by the American punk rock band The Offspring. It was released on August 4, 2010.[1] The album chronicles tracks from approximately 15 years of the band's career. It is the first album by the Offspring not to be released in the United States.

The album includes live versions and remixes of tracks from their studio albums Smash, Ixnay on the Hombre, Americana, Conspiracy of One, and Splinter. Although it was released two years after Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, this compilation does not contain any live versions and remixes of tracks from that album. It also includes songs from soundtracks and various B-sides. The album also contains covers of tracks by bands such as The Buzzcocks, Iggy & The Stooges, T.S.O.L., Billy Roberts, and AC/DC. Happy Hour! has sold 30,000 copies worldwide.[citation needed]
