Listing *a* favourite (as in a single song) is almost impossible, really, they have such a large back-catalogue.

But I've got a few I'd like to mention, varying in style a little, some of which are a little underrated too.

- "Staring At The Sun"
- "Jennifer Lost The War"
- "Blackball"
- "Nothing From Something"
- "Hypodermic"
- "Not The One"
- "Something To Believe In"
- "Leave It Behind"
- "Amazed"
- "Million Miles Away"
- "Lightning Rod"
- "Race Against Myself"


Haha, 12 songs, eh? About as much as I can narrow it down, I'm afraid. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't consider these the *BEST* Offspring songs (as in musically complex, original or having "masterpiece" status), in my eyes that would have to go to "The Kids Aren't Alright", most definitely. But those ( ^^^^^ ) are my favourite tracks overall.

Overall it's "The Kids Aren't Alright".

It's a... perfect song. The intro, verses, chorus, solo, lyrics, all good.

I don't even know what that means, but I like One Fine Day.

It's 'If I had a perfect day, I would have it start this way
Open up the fridge and have a tall boy (beer), yeah'.

The songs about getting drunk and rioting.

And one of my favourite Offspring songs is 'I'll be waiting'

Excellent lyrics, that anyone can relate to and some nice guitar work too.

1. dirty magic... this song has kind of a dark and melancholic essence.. and I like it..

2. nothing from something... very simple rythm, but the entity is very impressing

3. gone away..sad.. makes cold shivers go up my spine
