im one of the biggest offspring fans ever. but i must say if splinter was created by a different band, id completely would not like it at all. but luckly im a very loyal fan so since its offspring i like it. i still love offsprings newer material of course i absoulutly love conspiracy of one but if they create another album like splinter im going to really lose faith in them. sure splinter has its share of good songs of course cant get my head around you, the noose, long way home. unfortunatly songs like lightning rod and never gonna find me are alright punk songs but nothing special at all. and songs like spare me the details, hit that, and worst hang over ever are shameful. im not gonna lie. if you listen to those songs and then listen to smash or ixnay there is a huge difference. sure, i like bands changing over time. but not that way. anyway, sorry everyone for my bitching. but IM JUST A CONCERNED OFFSPRING FAN AND I WANT TO SEE IF ANYONE ELSE FEELS THE SAME WAY

Ok I'll make a real post I guess..

Yeah, Offspring do write some stupid joke songs now but I don't know what you're saying about never gonna find me and lightning rod. Those are great songs. It's the songs like worst hangover ever that piss me off. I don't think the songs absolutely suck but come on, it's the offspring, they can do A LOT better than that.

If their new album is like splinter, I'm not going to loose "faith" in them like you are though. No matter what they do, it kicks ass... it's just that... the punk rock songs with good lyrics kick more ass =P

To me that song got repetitive quickly. It's funny the first time I thought, but after that, It's the "worst offspring song ever". Haha I'm kidding, I like all their songs. I just wished they did another ska song like what happened to you and don't pick it up instead of worst hangover ever.

I hate when people say stuff like this. The band needs to know what people like; if there are people praising them every step of the way, that's not going to help them. If you don't like it, you don't like it. That doesn't mean you despise the bad with every fiber of your earthly being, it just means you don't like some songs/albums as much as you like others.

And, just the same, it's perfectly fine if you like every song.

Right, but they said they would have disliked Splinter if it was any other band. In a way, that's pretty judgemental--you can't like something just because it's a certain band. Offspring are my favorite band, but there are a few songs I skip, and albums I listen to less than others. Splinter saved my life for a few weeks when I lost all my other good CDs at the airport and only had Splinter left, but that doesn't mean it's my favorite Offspring album.

Worst Hangover Ever sucks and was just a plain mistake to ever have been released, even as a B-side it woulda blowed. But Lightining Rod is one of the strongest balls out tunes they have written in years.
