Afternoon all,

Something quite interesting I've just noticed (albeit somewhat trivial I know). You know how on a typical Offspring album track, let's think of 'Dammit, I Changed Again' for example, usually Dexter provides the backing vocals aswell as the lead vocals? And quite often they are overlapping vocals?

For example:

'Hey come inside, while I stand here acting bold (Can't Stand to Feel This Way) Clear out the cobwebs in my soul'

This of course is a trick that can be done in the studio, but obviously when they played this song live both Greg and Noodles would gang vocal the 'Can't Stand to Feel This Way' part as Dexter can't sing both at once.

However, after listening to 'Defy You' acoustic I heard Noodles backing up the 'Can you leave it all behind, cos you can't go back' part as expected, but surprisingly to me, when I listened to the album version of 'Defy You' I noticed that it was actually Noodles that recorded the studio backing vocals which I thought was pretty strange cos as mentioned, Dexter normally does it and you can never normally hear Greg or Noodles on backing vocals on album tracks. Check it out.

If you download the Dammit, I Changed Again video live from Much Music 2000 (the one where Dexter forgets the lyrics) you'll see that Greg doesn't stop singing in that song, his backing vocals come through along stronger than Noodles on that occasion.

i dont know why, but it seems like every bands lead vocals and backup vocals sound the same alot... you would just think it was an echo or some computerized thing but there is another person singing along

They do. The backing vocals on the recordings of a particular album will always have Dexter, Noodles, and either Greg or Ron (it never seems to be both, though I'm not going to swear by it.

I think guys in studio version of "DEFY YOU" the backing vocals are from Dexter and not from Noodles. By the way, it's perfect!

Hey, you're right! I never noticed that, although i did notice that Dexter does his own backing vocals most of the time..
I don't think Noodles and Dexter sound the same, Dexter's voice is much higher

In fact.. the only song in which I can clearly hear Noodles sing besides Defy You is Self Esteem, (bla bla blablabla, bla bla blablablah)
Can't think of another song where you hear Noodles

No, its Noodles. Dexter doesn't do the backing vocals where it is just one person singing, because thats just corny.

Actually, he does, in almost every Offspring song
