there have been a couple of threads that alrady ask "what is your favorite offspring song?", but im more interested in why. state your favorite offspring song and share your reason why you think it is the best.
my favorite and why: the kid's aren't alright (typical answer) because it has meaningful lyrics plus it has the best guitar rift in the world! a super combo!

My favorite: Gotta Get Away

Why: I don't really know. It just seems to call to me. Its just a really cool tune. Its seems to really fit my personality. Plus, its really fuckin' fun to play/sing.

Song: Kill The President

Why: As they said in the show back in 1991. "This one's called Kill The President. It's not about assassination, it's about taking control of our own lives."

My fave song: All I Want

Why: I love the lyrics. It's about someone who doesn't want to be pushed around, and the song is superfast :) Awesome song.

My favorite: Kick Him When He`s Down

I received Ignition in 1999 when I became 13 years old, and this was the best song ever imo. And now in 2006, I think it is still the best song they have ever done. The sound, the way Dexter sings, perfect.

Second is Gotta Get Away. My favorite live song, just a supercool song

i heard session on a punk o rama cd in 92/93 then self esteem got me addicted in 94 and have been ever since- seen em 10 times now so out the two i gotta say self esteem! as its not only the best offspring song ever its one of the all time greats and up there with sweet child o mine and smells like teen spirit etc (although i think self esteem is better than both of these)

becuase of it's lyrics and it's special style ( offbeat and the other things )

Bad Habit

I don't really know why... But it was the song I liked the most when I bought the Smash when it came up sooooooo long ago, and by then I was about 12 years old and I loved that "stupid dumbshit goddam motherfucker" thing that I could understand even though I could speak a very very little english, hehehe. And then I saw the videos of the shows and I loved that lighty thing at the begining...
The only t-shirt I owe from the Offspring is the one with that "stupid bla bla bla" written in the back (and I love it...!!!) :D

Me and My Old Lady, because that song is just the best song. It has the middle-eastern sound (which I looove) and great vocals.

My favorite's The Kids Aren't Alright. It's the first song I actually listened to, not counting the radio. That song is the reason I like them.

Dirty Magic

It kind of describes my ex girlfriend and me. We hated eachother but loved eachother at the same time. And yeah, you guys get it.
