I'm a little bit confused about the general opinion of this song. I'm sure most people on this forum love it, but some people on Amazon.com gave that song ratings like a 4/10 because "the drumming gets annoying after a while." I love the drumming. It's loud and you can really feel it, I think it's one of the big things that makes it a great song. Me personally, Gotta Get Away is my 4th favorite Offspring song, only behind Come Out And Play, Gone Away, and Pretty Fly. To me it's even better than The Kids Aren't Alright and Self Esteem. But on the Song Vs. Song thread, I gave somebody the choices of Bad Habit and Gotta Get Away, and the guy picked Bad Habit. I was secretly shocked. I mean, I love Bad Habit and all, and I know it's a really popular song, but ZI secretly really wanted the guy to pick Gotta Get Away. When I saw them at HFStival last year, they not only played that song, but they played it so well, that they re-showed the video of them playing it at this year's HFStival, right after The Bravery. But I've been hearing that they don't always play it. What do you think of this song?

Boring drumming? Take a look at the White Stripes. THAT is boring drumming. Believe me, I'd know.

Amen to that man, we covered it for about 3 months and it went down well, but it starts to drag...like an anchor for the dude with the AXE

It's a good song, but definitely not one of my favourites.

I can't believe it was a single over Genocide. Personally, GGA is the only song on Smash I dislike. It's just boring.

Cogs is so much better than gotta get away -_-Agreed. That "crazy super-fast punk riff," comprised entirely of powerchords, was strangely catchy.

great song, but does it really need a poll? If someone made a poll about every offspring song, the first 3-4 pages would all be polls about a certain song. That would be fucking retarded.

I just made a poll about this song because it seems to be their most contriversial hit. I 100% agree that not every song should have a poll, but this particular song seems to have the most opinions of all their songs.
