Which intro to an offsapring concert is beta: Bad Habit or Neocon? I personally can't split the two. Neocon is good in that it sought of hs its own little inroduction for each member (drums, bass, guitar, vocals). But bad habit has such huge energy with the strong bass and the fastness of the song.

Guitar 1 is that one thing it plays before the vocals, guitar 2 being the end of the intro.

Bad Habit, no doubt. Neocon is nice to listen to on your home stereo, but not at a live concert.

i still think that the "doom intro" and bad habit is the perfect intro, or americana would be a nice opener, as they did in 99-00 on most of the shows, but bad habit and the doom intro is just fucking awesome

the worst opener ive had experience with the offspring was TKAA at leeds, wtf, you cant put that song first:S but an awesome show:

I see what you mean! But they could surprise us a few times, and do different openings. The only ones I know are the doom-bad habit, All I Want and Neocon intros. All very predictable. They could open maybe with Genocide, for a change...

just picture it... lights are low, anticipation is high seeing as you've been standing there for nearly 2 hours listening to dodgy support acts followed by huge stretches of silence then suddenly you hear the drums... neocon sooo gets my vote. amazing intro

I liked Neocon as a start, but Bad Habit is also very cool with that bass intro. But which one I liked to see as an intro are the following ones:

Hit That (could be cool with that beginning)
Session indeed
Can't Repeat (start right off with the new single)
or with a really old song, like Elders or Blackball.

especially if they all scream at the very top of their lungs - Session on CD doesnt seem to be really screamed.

Yes, but that's because they reduced the volume of the vocals. I don't know why they did that, though...

back when they played Pay The Man i think in early 98...as there first song, just after americana came out, it was a...WTF is this?? then 5 minutes in you get a kick in the Balls. classic hazeiness


Personally tho, starting with I'll Be Waiting, maybe at the start or at the encore...would be amazin'

Bad Habit is better. But Me and My Old Lady would be the best. Or it would be better as the last song. Come Out and Play is a good one too.

Genocide is an awesome suggestion. It's so easy to get pumped with that video. The way it builds at the start is awesome.

The doom intro sounds incredible, and Bad Habit after that, perfect.

i can't choose between Neocon/The Noose (which has audience involvment) and Doom Intro/Bad Habit (more ambient then kick in), both are great, progressive and then energic.

i'd suggest Change The World, never been played as far as i know, and has same characteristics as these 2 intros... would be awesome!
