Whenever I hear any song by Offspring it always reminds me of Crazy Taxi, just wondering if this was the case with anybody else?
#3

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top
Fender 300CE T-Bucket
Dean DOF ML [For Sale]
Marshall AVT 2000 valvestate

I love the offspring top 3 bands of all time for me, but this will be deleted very soon, so while it is open may I just say I saw them live about a month ago and it was a great show, but m,an did dexter gain some weight.

Crazy Taxi had like 3 songs in the arcade. I remember hearing at the start

YA YA YA YA YAAAA

And some Bad Religion songs.

I never understood the Offspring. Not my thing. But whats wrong with Good Charlotte my friend?

Oh come on sargasm you closed the other thread but kept this garbage open. Siiiigh.

Gringo Bandito is good. Its used at our best taco place in our city Chronic Tacos. Excellent grub.

The opinion of the punk forum (at least among regulars) is almost unanimous on this: The Offspring are really bad music

I think of my younger days when I hear them, at least, their old songs.


This, this band got me into music. I used to listen to Smash and Americana all the time between ages 4-7. Still like them today, have all the albums but I really don't listen to them that much anymore.

Oh, and I think there's already a thread in the pop-punk forum.

Its not about the Radio its about talent, the front man has a bigger vocal range than Micheal Jackson and he can sing from heavey metal to high pitched ...No.12 on the top 20 under rated guitarists of ALL TIME...etc

Aren't you the home boy that said the All American Rejects were a good punk band? I'm drunk at 11:30am so don't mind me if I'm wrong.

Wrong in a couple hours is going to be a blast.

Why is this still open? Fuck the Offspring.

He was being sarcastic.

I don't know. Usually Offspring threads are closed pretty quickly.

I like The Offspring. They write catchy songs. Ok, they haven't released anything particularly noteworthy since Americana, but the albums prior were all solid and Smash is one of the best pop-punk albums ever. Another band that gets thrown to the dogs because they're popular. That said, Splinter was a pretty bad album...
#22
oh boy. i just remembered that time i saw the offspring when they headlined warped tour 05. i live in jersey, and apparently lots of rednecks/white trash/etc. really like them, so the audience was full of sour milk smelling, huge beer gut having, drunk as hell, dumb as ****, sweaty, hairy, and immensely stupid hicks who were starting fights every five minutes for simply bumping into each other. other irritating members of the crowd included generic teen to mid 20's douchebags who expected the crowd to move out of the way for him and his girlfriend. if you happened to brush against either of them, he'd get really mad and want to fight.

also, A LOT of people got smashed in the face/head with beer bottles
#24
eh, thats the only one i've been to that was like that. every other one has had mostly friendly punks, not dumb white trash. i mean, you might get elbowed in the face by accident (or on purpose) but most people aren't looking to throw down in the middle of a crowd
#28
I was at the jersey show in 05 and it sounds like someone just isnt an offspring fan. Because I remember just a crap load of crowd surfing kids and a pretty mediocre crowd.

Overall? Yeah. It was pretty bad. But (Can't Get My) Head Around You was a really good song. Essentially, they're off and on pretty hard. Smash was amazing, Americana was amazing, Conspiracy of One was pretty good, the rest were pretty average.

I saw them for the first time this summer, at Summerfest here. It was an amazing show, and 2nd row seats too.

I'm actually surprised that a good amount of people think they suck. I find them [somewhat] unique, and have their own kind of sound. After the show, I only got into them more, and they have some seriously catchy music. They've gotten a bit more pop in R&F, R&G, but I still think it's a good album.
#32
It seems interesting to me, how I can watch a top 100 bands/songs/albums of the 90s and not see Offspring mentioned once. Smash is the best selling independant album of all time, they were probably the first US punk band to have a #1 hit too. But they get zero respect from anyone.
I too, saw them in concert, and there were a lot of pretty hardcore punk fans having a great time. Never hear from them here....
#36
i like smash from this band, i like it alot. But their newer albums never really did anything for me. A mixture of ok songs, and annyoing radio hits like "pretty fly" and "original prankster"
But smash is defineately my favourite pop punk album alongside Greend days dookie

The Offspring suffered the same fate as green day
-started out amazing, sold out, lost their edge, turned crap!!

thats the way it, thats the way it goes....
RIP Turnip. RIP MCA.
RIP #58.

The Offspring used to be my favourite band

Their first four albums are brilliant. They started to get too commercial after Pretty Fly though. Still good music though.
Stand up and cheer if you like SimCity
