i dont think this is true but i heard it in the forums. although i highly doubt they did the power rangers theme because powers first aired on tv in 1993 which was before offspring was even big so if offspring was big its not likely they did it. does anyone know the truth about this stupid fucking question?

Malcolm in the Middle was by They Might Be Giants. Wait...you're being sarcastic. X.x
But anyway, I was talking to the people in Suncoast about them. They seemed like fans of Offspring, and the girl had been to a concert ten years ago, so I think they'd know their stuff better than me. And I had heard the Power Rangers stuff sometime before, so...who knows. Apparently that's how they got their big break.

Find some old tapes of the power rangers and look at the credits. Or just look it up on google.

Geeze and I thought crapman from the old bbs was bad :rolleyes:

king of the hill s theme was by a band called the refreshments.
and most likely for the power rangers theme, they just pulled some studio musicians, or hell even just used a key board and drum machine.

Don't forget the theme from the King of Queens and Seinfeld. The little pops and beeps heard in the Seinfeld song were Greg K's idea.

Buckethead did not write or play the theme song. That's just a rumor started due to mislabeling of the song in file sharing programs, but he does play the track "Firebird" in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Soundtrack.

I love the original Power Rangers theme music. In fact, I learned to play on guitar just because it has an awesome tapping solo. The track totally pwns any Offspring song.
Here's the mp3 if anybody wants to hear it again

Oh...sorry...but yes that song pwns! I can't tap for my life though so I play rhythm. Pretty high up the board!

Tapping isn't really that hard especialy in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers them music, unless it's a complicated tapping section like in Symphony X's Sea of Lies. Just try it for 5 minutes and you'll have it down. It's not that complicated of a skill that people make it out to be. I'm sure you could even get the tapping section in Eruption down if you try hard enough. How long have you been playing? Maybe if you only been playing for less than a year, I'd understand if you can't do it.

This is the Symphony X song I was talking about. Just fast foward it to the 2:36 mark. It's hard as fuck because you have to tap in more than one string.

As a Power Rangers officianado, I can tell you that Buckethead is in no way related to the Power Rangers.

"Go Go Power Rangers" was written and performed by Ron Wasserman, as well as many other songs heard from TV shows produced by Saban Entertainment. Ron Wasserman also is known as The Mighty RAW and Aaron Waters.

Sorry I bumped this, but now you have all been educated.

Ron Wasserman? A relative of Noodles, perchance? :P

Also, it's painfully obvious that The Offspring wrote the Spongebob theme.

They also tossed out guitar picks to the crowd, with Offspring-ish artwork on them.

Kinda off topic but did anyone notice that The Vandals - Oi to the World sounds exactly like the king of the hill theme?
