Because I connect with the music. It almost feels like the Offspring wrote the music for me. :D

Sometimes I have the same feeling, that the lyrics are about me. :) But I like them, because they are great musicians in my opinion. Ron was my favourite member. He is my favourite drummer together with Lars Ulrich from Metallica. Ron is really great drummer!!! And if the band have great drummer, the band is usually great, too. And I like punk especially skate punk, so it´s because why I like them.

they were my first band, and im really into lyrics, so growing up from 11 i was connecting with the lyrics and they related to me, still do. plus the music generally is raw power with smarts. so it can get you pumped or just let you listen to it and connect with the words...or be an 11 year old kid jumping on his bed everytime he heard all i want and wanted his dad to listen to the song to show him how this kid of his felt...ya.

because when i listen to their songs, i just feel a lot of energy and adrenaline inside of me.. that rocks

and also because they have smart and cool lyrics. I like the way Dexter writes down how the band sees the world.
They're not just a whole bunch of punkies writting no-sense words just because it sounds "cool", you know?

I even analize what they're sayin'...

i agree. and they're one of the few bands that really put some thought into their lyrics. sometimes i can relate to a lot of the songs. some bands lyrics dont make any sense. you're listening and you're like what the heck does that mean? example: RHCP's lyrics are like that and some of green days too. they're just words and phrases put together.

first of all because they got me into punkrock (or rock in general). And they have written songs wich fits with every mood. When I'm happy I listen to songs like What Happened To You, when I'm pissed there are songs like Da Hui and when I'm sad there are songs like Gone Away (for example). And they just write great songs.

what i also like about the lyrics, is that they're not talking that "I'm so lonely and nobody likes me" thing... They talk about the real thing in the world, society, politics,what young people go through, and even the natural enviroment like it's mentioned in "Not the one"

I just love how energetic and kick-ass there music is. Stuff like Smash, The Noose, Kick Him When He's Down, Elders, Nothing From Something, Mota, Damnit I Changed Again (and many others)...these kinds of songs just put me in a great mood. I love the adrenaline, I love the passion, I love Dexter's vocals and Noodles' kick-ass guitar and Ron/Aton's excellent drumming. And Greg's a great bassist as well. Quite simply, they just rock. It's even better that they still thrive in a day and age when most popular rock bands have no balls whatsoever (Hoobastank, Yellowcard, Linkin Park, etc.) or are complete rip-off artists (Jet, anyone?).

I used to relate to the lyrics too when I was younger. There was something about the music which always made me relax or just forget the problems I had to face back then. It was fun, full of energy and always there for me. I don't listen to the band any more. Very rarely. But I still think the music has been some good influence.

Enjoy it while you can.

so, if i may ask, how come you don't listen to them very often or anymore? did you grow out of them or just have a change of interest?

that is it people... someone expressed just the way i feel. Besides that, Dexter´s voice... what is that, huh? I get hypnotized just by listening to his voice...
hihihi... the band kicks ass.

Because they're aggressive and catchy at the same time, which I love. Also, they have a very unique style that I enjoy.

I love them 'cause they are very great musicians! someone says that's very easy playing punk.
Well, i'd like to know if these people are able to do the same that Offspring do..
Offspring are the only punk band i know that makes songs with a soul.
Theyr songs are not just four chords and a speedy rythm.
You can feel a lot of ways listening to their songs: You can feel anger, paranoid,desperations,hope...it all just run trough my veins and burns in my mind.
Beautiful musics, wonder lyrics...what else do they need?

Offspring for ever!!Keep on playing long!!
