View Full Version : What was the first Offspring song you ever heard?

08-17-2005, 07:16 AM
I'm not sure, since I was born in 1992. I know my brothers (who are like 10 years older than me) were into The Offspring when I was little. And I could recognize Gone Away and Come Out And Play a little when I got greatest hits, so I'm not sure. I think I first heard Come Out And Play.

Pretty Fly. Then I downloaded Self Esteem (basiclly to find out what it was like), and..yeah. Then it all started =P

"The Meaning of Life."

(It was played on the radio here before "All I Want", even though that was the first single).

Bought Ixnay within a week, and Smash not long afterwards. So been listening since '97, in other words.

It was pretty fly for a white guy. I think that must be the most popular one cos it's always on the radio and stuff. Like when I turned on the radio today that was the first song, but I'm babbling. By the ways this is my first post so hiyas! :D

either Nitro or Come Out and Play

My sister got Smash on cassette in 1994.

I think it was Gone Away and All I want. From the Inaxy album

08-17-2005, 10:03 AM

Self Esteem is the first song I ever heard associated with the name "Offspring," but the first song I ever heard by them was Come Out And Play, which was also the first great song I ever heard on one of my local rock stations.

08-17-2005, 03:37 PM
I'm not sure but I think it was Want you bad or Pretty fly

I probably heard others but I think Staring at the Sun is what brought me into it and it the first song I remeber hearing.

Some people need to become friends with the search button.

I'm old-school. I got into them when I heard COAP at a roller rink in 1994.

08-17-2005, 08:49 PM
I THINK it was 'Pretty Fly (for a White Guy) but I'm not positive. It could have been something off Conspiracy of One.

08-17-2005, 08:50 PM
i first got into offspring when i saw the video pretty fly(for a white) guy on tv then i just started listening to all there stuff

08-17-2005, 09:06 PM
All I want or Starring at the Sun, can't remember really.

08-17-2005, 09:08 PM
I can still remember seeing the video for Come Out and Play on Mtv all those years ago. i also remember when the video for Self Esteem came out and really hating the eggs that get thrown at the camera.

Intermission :D
I was 9, and my friend had just bought Ixnay from Russia :cool:

08-18-2005, 08:00 AM
Come out and play =D

But it was the second song I heard (The Kids Aren't Alright) that got me into Offspring...

Conspiracy of One
08-18-2005, 09:21 AM
Probably for me it was Self Esteem or Hit That.

08-18-2005, 11:22 AM
Either kids arnt alright or pretty fly here

08-18-2005, 11:35 AM
The first songs I heard were Pretty Fly (on MTV, a lot), all the singles from Smash (on the radio) and all the songs from Crazy Taxi 1 and 2. The Kids Aren't Alright is the first song I heard that I knew was the Offspring.

08-18-2005, 03:38 PM
pretty fly... when I was 7, my best friend's brother listened to it all the time. I remember that I liked it. I had never heard of the offspring back then

08-18-2005, 03:53 PM
Pretty Fly. I saw the video on TV and I bought the album, and then...I was stuck.

08-18-2005, 05:21 PM
I dont remember if it was come out and play, all i want or pretty fly. Because i think i heard first come out and play but i didnt know who was the "singer" or the band. but the first video that i watched on tv was pretty fly, BUT i remember when i heard all i want on radio !!!!!! :eek:

My brain is gonna exploit !!!!!!!!!!!

08-18-2005, 05:31 PM
the first song I've heard by them was Pretty Fly (For A White Guy). Which is the song that got me into them.

It's funny isn't, we all hate that song, yet a lot of people got into The Offspring from that song.

08-18-2005, 05:57 PM
Come Out and Play. That song really stuck to me the first time I heard it.

08-19-2005, 04:16 PM
