Greg K. has to be the Most underrated member of the offspring...Dexter has the Vocals, Noodles has the Lead Guitar...so their fore, in music videos, they get the most parts...Now atom has the little journal thingy so Hes getting acquanted with the fans...but Greg K. hardly gets anything...you realy never get to hear him talk, yet some of his baselines make songs (Self Esteem, LAPD...) I would just like to dedicate this little post for greg K, since hes awsome...

P.S.-Who Woulden't let a face this cute get a lil more stage time... :D http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y61/LukyItalion74/GregKid.bmp

He doesn't do much because he's really shy

I do agree that he's really underrated. but he does kick ass, and his little "dance" rocks a damn lot.

GO GREG K ! YOU'RE THE BEST ! :D

Greg is awesome and he is definetly underrated. But I don't think he minds it too much.

I hope not...because if he gets pissed and quits, it would totaly hurt the band...seeing as he is the co-founder of the band...

and he's also the only one who did the same thing from the very start - bass.
Dexter was the drummer, as you can see in the easter egg on the Music Collection DVD. (go to s/t in discography, and press left. arrow appears. enter. woo hoo.)

nope, sorry. I got that from a live video, I think it was Burn It Up from the big day out 1995. You can get it here: http://offspring.art.pl/?m=media&category=vi

Check Greg out in the London 1993 video on the new DVD. He is rocking out in that!

Greg K. is the best bassist in the world, hands down. My name is also Greg and Gregs rule. I do think that Ron was really underrated because of the fact that he had lots of song starting beats in the videos and the didn't even show him playing. Gotta Get Away for example, you see ron for about 7 seconds in the entire video. You also see Greg for about 7 seconds in that video too, so ya Greg is underrated

I'm sorry to disagree with that. John Myung (or whatever his name is) from Dream Theater is actually better.
BUT !
Greg K IS the COOLEST bassist in the world.

If you read some other threads you'd see that a lot of people actually really like him, he chooses to be an 'under-rated' member.

Greg K simple RAWKS!

Get it through your thick skulls that Offspring aren't the greatest band that ever came to be. Jesus Christ, I mean they're good, but "LiEk GrEg K iS lIeK SOoOoOOoo AwEsOmE!! He Iz Da BeSt EvA!!1" is such an overstatement it's not even funny. Is he underrated? Yes. Is he the greatest bass player ever? No. You guys need to expand your taste, seriously.

Coke a Holic of course we are going to say the Offspring are the best band because these are the Offspring boards! This is a place meant to glorify and ask questions about them. It looks like you are an active member and I hope all your posts aren't putting down Offspring fans. So anyway back on topic I think it would be kool if Greg was in more interviews and stuff like the commentary on the new DVD but I also like how he is the quiet type because it makes him more mysterious because people dont know too much about him and we end up making threads like this one!

You could have picked better songs. Self esteem is 6 notes at most. LAPD is like 4. I Choose is decent, as Is the Worst Hangover ever. But the reasons he's the "smallest" member of the band, is because he doesn't say much, and well, his basslines aren't always the most interesting. I Hate Green Day, but the bass in those songs are so much better. As is Red Hot Chili Peppers, Primus, Rage Against the Machine, Nofx, Rancid, blink182, Cake, Fall Out Boy, Nirvana, Violent Femmes,Dream Theater, Pink Floyd, Weezer, Hell even the slipknot bassist is more interesting. (listen to Do/Nothing-Bitchslap) It blows away all the songs Greg does.

Don't get me wrong. Greg is a wonderful bassist. Nobody can be bad at an instrument if they've been playing it for over twenty years. But Dexter writes the music. And Everything Dexter Writes for Basslines, Well, Sucks. I'd love to see greg really play one time. Bust loose.

HA! I hope to god you're not serious.

And quite frankly, he's overrated. You are seriously musically deprived to think he's the best bassist in the world. seriously. Listen to some Primus, Red Hot Chili Peppers, anything by Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, or Jaco Pastorius, then tell me Greg K is the best bassist in the world. Even if he doesn't write the bass lines for offspring, there's no way he can ever compare to the bassists I've mentioned. EVER.
Okay, I'm done ranting.

What about Matt Freeman?

Turbonegro
07-21-2005, 09:11 PM
Matt Freeman plays for Rancid, right?
If so, he's pretty good, from what I've heard, but still no match for Claypool, Wooten, Flea etc.

Yes he plays for Rancid. But I have to agree he's no match for Flea or Claypool. Those guys are just downright amazing.

Im tired of hearing things like this. Offspring is my favourite band, I like it a lot, but they are not the best musicians of the world. they are good in what they do, Greg is great, but bassists like from Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Primus are so much better. Noodles is a great guitarrist, but Slash, Joe Satriani or Tom Morello are incredible. Im not saying they are bad musicians, only that they are not the best. The important thing is that they know how to do great songs.

everyone says there are better bassists but remember they have a really tight sound without over complicating matters, the songs dont really require fancy drum and bass solos and such whereas in bands like ratm and rhcp its more open to different things!

lol, Greg K probably doesn't feel under rated if you ask me, he just wants to be left alone from the public, i remember Noodles saying that he's a very Down To Earth type of person and shy/quiet, i guess thats just him, i reckon he rocks! and i love his "Greg K Shimmy" lol. Rock On Greg K! :D
