we've had the heavest song thread, but what do you think is their darkest song?
gone away is the obvious choice, but i choose has dark lyrics, its all about someone commiting suicide and having flashbacks of their life, and the chorus isn't too cheery, but it is just upbeat. wots your opinions?

I'd say Demons, Amazed, Gone Away, End Of The Line.

I choose is a metaphorical song about living life in the fast lane, with no regrets and just doing what you want.

and I think... jennifer lost the war, i'll be waiting, no hero, so alone, something to believe in, gone away, amazed, change the world, have you ever, kids aren't alright, vultures, race against myself... there are so damn many.

I choose is about life, and how life is I guess, not a bout suicide.
Id say lightning rod

i agree, No Hero

Nounou
02-23-2006, 11:23 AM
I never really understood about what it tells really but it's about the death of a friend of Dexter that I couldn't prevent isn't it ?

wich song?, no hero?

Llamas
02-23-2006, 11:24 AM
this guy died (probably not anyone dexter knew: i think it's a commentary song, more than a personal song) and he was little weird... and he feels guilt for not doing anything to help save his life, and he doesn't want the guilt, so he tries to defend himself by saying there was nothing he could do and that he's not some hero.

lightning rod

Hehe
"I am waiting On a mountaintop For the moment that the sky will strike"
Waiting for the moment of death

"My apologies Are forever lost Soon to ashes in a flash of light"
He cant do anything, soon will be all gone

"Locked up forever inside I look to the stars and ask why"
He cant tell anyone, he hold it all inside

"Throw me down"
Its what life is doing to him

"Its been raining And now I will pay Woe is come to me
I am the lightning rod
I am waiting On a mountaintop
Oh above me He will strike me!"

He considers himself as Lightning rod because all the weights of the world is in his shoulders


Thats is what I think.
I could tell more, but its hard for me typing in english >.<

Titus
02-23-2006, 11:33 AM
Can someone tell me what does no hero means?
I never understood the music

Jennifer Lost the War. Or another song of S/T probably but this is all I can think of.

I think the darkest is TKAA. It's about a very depressing theme. Decadence of young kids originated by drugs...

Nineteen Seventy Nine

Agreed.

Also I'm surprised no one mentioned Beheaded. A song about killing and chopping off a ton of people's heads doesn't seem very "bright" to me.

Beheaded was written as a joke though so you can't take it too seriously

WebDudette
02-23-2006, 11:55 AM
Yeah but it is a joke song.

electric_alexa
02-23-2006, 11:57 AM
i would say Amazed and Beheaded

I find Denial, revisited quite dark.....break up? and Vultures. I have to agree with end of the line, amazed and gone away aswell

Dmarques
02-23-2006, 12:12 PM
WTF!!
Bloodstains!!,
TKAA is also a depresive song, Gone away, etc...

Hux
02-23-2006, 02:12 PM

Bloodstains!!
That's a cover though and I think we're only looking for songs by The Offspring.

They've all pretty much been said but Gone Away, Amazed, Demons, etc.

all their real dark songs are on the self titled album you noobs

Jakebert
02-23-2006, 05:53 PM
I wouldn't count those songs of S/T, because to me at least, it's really obvious that he was purposely trying to be dark and gloomy, and I don't think that it really worked out all that well, as it shows through. Songs that are naturally dark because the band took on themes like death and drug addiction in a serious manner should be looked at above gimmicky dark songs.

That said, I agree that End of the Line and No Hero are probably the darkest.

It's about going through life. This argument has been had before.

noodle654
02-23-2006, 08:22 PM
Gone Away is the top of course. But I would have to also say The Kids Arent Alright, I mean it isnt like Gone Away, but It is about growing up and the changes in a neighborhood. I also think that Forever and a Day is like those. Many of you might disagree with me, but I think to me those are pretty deep cuts. This is just my opinion and I felt like sharing it with you guys.

barangatang
02-23-2006, 11:13 PM
End of the line. hands down.

.:SMASH:.
02-23-2006, 11:57 PM
besides S/T i always thought lightning rod was pretty dark. dunno maybe its just the music, not the lyrics

F@ BANKZ
02-24-2006, 09:15 AM
I think 2nd 2 gone away, No hero is the darkest.

Gone away...

The Nameless
02-24-2006, 10:53 AM
Bad Habit is pretty dark I mean, hes talking about a bad case of road rage. Really bad.
"You drive on my ass
Youre foots on the gas
And your next breath is your last"
Yeah that speaks for its self.

DICKON

The song is just so morbid and evil it's impossible to take seriously, so I don't think it's all that dark. I think Amazed is probably their darkest song, in terms of actually feeling that way when you're listening to it.

German Andres
03-04-2006, 08:12 AM
I would say Demons and Beheaded. Isn`t it funny?? Those songs are ones of my favourite! :D

Drummerguy123
03-04-2006, 08:26 AM
I'd say demons, Leave it Behind, Me and My Old Lady, Amazed, Gone Away, End of the Line, Dirty Magic, etc. And although it has been said many times before, I Choose is most definately not about suicide. I'll go into my obsessively long descriptions of it again if I have to, and you don't want that.

hmm id had to say The Kids Arent Alright i mean the lyrics realy explains how horrible the life in the neighborhood is, So alone is also a real dark tune. and Of course Gone Away.

They aren't a dark band, but they have had some dark songs. Also, dark does not mean emo. I suggest shutting up and stop being stupid. Death is always a good alternative.

I think have you ever is the number one most depressing song that I can think of off the top of my head. come on, "sleep forever"? no hero, too, that's a song that hits close to home to a lot of people, and you can identify with the emotions of that song to a motherfuckin T, because that's exactly how it is. I think it would be strange to write something like that and not experience it firsthand, or witness it happening to someone else...it recognizes too many angles of the blame game in there for that to happen. i could care less what dexter's backstory with that song is, or any song for that matter.

...I choose isn't dark, it has been my theme song for the past several years! this is how i interpret it, you have a choice when life gives you lemons to make lemonade. the songs that got me through high school were have you ever, no hero, and i choose.

GONE AWAY, it is the darkest song, maybe the title of this board should be "the second Offspring's darkest song". Which might be Have You Ever, then Forever And A Day and Get It Right... Amazed and Leave It Behind. Maybe the darkest songs you can find them on the darkest albums, Ixnay On The Hombre, defenitely the darkest, and Ignition. Anayway, Gone Away...
