View Full Version : New Offspring album will be humoristic? Damn you Dexter!

There's some bands that have really catchy music, but shitty lyrics.

There's other bands that have really good lyrics, but shitty music.

It's rare when you have a band with both good lyrics and music. Offspring is one of those bands... but what the hell has Dexter been thinking lately? Why all these goofy songs? Of course there's always some funny joke stuff on every offspring album, but at least the joke songs on their eariler albums were actually pretty good. Songs like beheaded and burn it up kicked ass, but now what do we have? Worst hangover ever? These joke songs are just getting worst and I have a really bad feeling about this new album after hearing it's going to be humoristic.

I say enough with "I'm never going to drink again!", "You acted like a ho!", "don't pick up the soap!" and go back to kick ass lyrics and kick ass music.

There's my little whine for today.

Wikipidia includes the words "new album" in the closing sentence for thier offspring profile, so naturally everyone goes berserk.

I think the Offspring need to start making some more hardcore punk music instead of the "joke" songs I guess you could call them. I hate it when people don't think the Offspring are Punk Rock. As long as they have a nice hardcore single, I really don't care about the rest of the album being humorous.

the new album may be centered around humor songs...but that doesn't mean they're not going to have any real songs...and humor songs can sometimes double as good for a funny song and good for a real song

Cool to hate is a classic humoristic song. From Americana these "joke" songs have been their way or selling albums. I really dont' know why they need to write crappy pop tunes, their best selling album (smash) didn't have this pop poo on it.

I think he doesnt mean songs like Worst Hangover ever. hes talking about songs like original prankster, want you bad, one fine day, i choose, mota... all that (kinda) good stuff.

theres more songs like: shes got issues, feelings (well you can see those humoristic, if ya want to)... what else.... come out and play.

The thing about their joke songs is that they're NOT FUNNY, EVER, AND NEVER HAVE BEEN!!! That's why they should cut it out. They're acting like a bunch of fuckin' immature 12 year old kids who just learned a few new curse words whenever they write shit like the lyrics from "Spare Me The Details", "Beheaded", and "When You're In Prison".

Will eveyone please stop moaning about nothing? Just let the offspring do what they do best.....make music. You should be pretty glad that they're still around after this long. In my opinion all they're songs are brilliant and they dont need to be critesised(not sure how to spell it) by their fans do they? If they are real fans they will stick with them whatever music they decide to bring out, and thats what im going to do because everysong means something different to me even the commical songs.

Offspring has humor songs, but they don't really make me laugh. The only one that did make me laugh is the Disclaimer, and that's not a song, that's an intro. But I think the songs that are supposed to be funny are good, so I voted yes.

Every song has good lyrics. I love um all i mean somg of my least fav offspring songs are trying to be funny only 2 thos why don't you get a job and i want you bad. i still love them but some of there songs off smash where not to good i never liked nitro much its ok and a few others but all in all i love every song the offspring are why better then ANY other band :} imop :cool:

Just because the lyrics are a joke doesn't mean they will play it like a joke...

If that makes sence to any of you, take Self Esteem for example, you can't seriously say that makes you laugh when you listen to it... although if you read the lyrics BEFORE listening to the song, you're most likely to laugh.


I honastly don't care, as long as they keep on making music.

Totaly agree'd ... seriously guy's. Would you rather them not bring out a album? i know most of us wouldn't want that... besides, song's like Spare Me The Details and Walla Walla are awesome to jump around and stuff to.

I DEMAND A "I DON'T CARE" CHOICE ON THE POLL :mad:

what is the problem with songs like pretty fly and walla walla? :confused: i canīt see any problem. they are good songs like the other is just a little more........... can't think in a good word :rolleyes:
by the way, i didn't vote

I didn't either and I agree.
HOWEVER, I think that songs like "Genocide" and "Something to Believe In" are far better than Pretty Fly and all those. But yes, I like those songs too...so as long as the song is good, I don't care what it's about and such...

i don't care too. of course have more songs better then 'the humorist songs' but songs like these can help you. i think you know what i want to say. songs like gone away, one fine day, walla walla and stuff. all these songs have a subject and i don't care what it is. if the songs is good i'll like it. i mean you already have an offspring song who helps you in a bad or good moment?

They used to be, But Honestly they've turned into Pop/Punk. Just Like Goldfinger, Millencolin and loads of other bands.

Back In The S/T, Ignition, and Smash Days They were definately Punk. They started to ween a little in Ixnay, But They weren't Pop/Punk Yet. Since Americana though, Pop/Punk.

Dammit shut the fuck everyone. I should of saw this coming... a shitty pop vs. punk argument in my little poor thread.

Well at least we know now that more than half of the voters here are sick of the joke songs. So you know how it goes Dexter, stop writing joke songs or we'll make you eat carrots (get it? har har)

Seriously though, for all of you guys that are like "I don't care, I just want offspring to keep making music" ...well of course we all want that, but having good lyrics to a song can make the song itself so much better. Guess what? Dexter has that super power ability to write amazing lyrics, so why the hell isn't he using it as much as he did back in s/t?

I know a lot of you want joke songs because they make you giggle and tehehe but doesn't listening to the same joke lyrics over and over again get more repetitive than green day's music?

I'm only talking about Offspring's recent joke songs by the way. Like I've said before, their old joke material kicked ass. I bet my washing machine that there is going to be more songs like 'worst hangover ever' on the new album though..

You are disagreeing with Apathy that the Offspring played punk music back then. That's an argument. Maybe not a huge one but a shitty little one like I said in my last post. You are saying all their songs are popular rock. Well I think Offspring's songs are alternative rock. We all argue over what the type of music offspring play. It's so stupid. Who cares? We like whatever type of music they play right? Isn't that good enough?

Ugh.. as I grow up, I find that I have less and less time to do all this lame internet shit. I have to stop wasting my time like this. On to the www.lemonadegame.com/ !!!!

Back on topic - hmm, I think the song mota definitely has a serious topic, but it's kind of put into a funnier way. Same with What happened to you.

Did someone earlier in this thread say Come out and play was a joke song? Ha I remember Dexter didn't allow Wierd Al's parody because come out and play was too much of a serious topic.
