um, when the hell did offspring cover "doll parts" by hole? that's BS. unless it was like 10 seconds at a show, as a joke.

Someone must tell me why Baby One More Time is on the list like 6 or 7 times. I know they covered it as a joke once.
And Offspring didn't cover a Led Zeppelin song from what I can remember...

i have yet to hear another band do a good cover of an offspring song. the closest would be pretty fly for a rabbi and thats a parody by wierd al not a cover.

Wrong, it was originally from Billy Idol

Wasn't generation x Billy Idol's band?

There are quite a few songs on that list which the offspring only played live once, and which last only a few seconds in their version

Feelings isn't a cover. It's more of a parody. Dexter just wanted to fuck that song up. Albert's version is about love and The Offspring's about hate.

Albert Morris - Feelings (as a Midi-file) (http://www.sunncity.com/music/mid3/feelings_AlbertMorris.mid)

Morris Lyrics:
Feelings, nothing more than feelings,
trying to forget my feelings of love.
Teardrops rolling down on my face,
trying to forget my feelings of love.

Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it.
I wish I've never met you, girl; you'll never come again.

Feelings, wo-o-o feelings,
wo-o-o, feel you again in my arms.

Feelings, feelings like I've never lost you
and feelings like I've never have you again in my heart.

Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it.
I wish I've never met you, girl; you'll never come again.

Feelings, feelings like I've never lost you
and feelings like I've never have you again in my life.

Feelings, wo-o-o feelings,
wo-o-o, feelings again in my arms.
Feelings...(repeat & fade)

so many of those I haven't but would like to hear, and maybe I'm wrong about this but I believe you can add Blitzkrieg Bop to the list of songs the Offspring have covered
