who sings the "ahh..." in the beggining of the song? I dont think it's dexter, I'd recongize his voice...
and why the lines: "well, f**k you" and another one with F**k is not in the lyrics? well, it's clear that they censored it, but well they are a rock\punk band and they talk like that and that is their album, so I don't see a reason it should be censored...

in the live version it's higgins doing the "aaaaaaaaah" thing... but in Milano 2005 higgins wasn't present, so the crowd did that :)

its not an addition, it's in the song... and there is a part with hmm... well ,I just forgot it... I'm hearing the song, just a song I'll tell you what is it...
"Do'nt blame me, I just work here but I wanna F**k You!!" all this sentence is not in the lyrics

EDIT: in spare me the details he says: "I'm not the one that acted like a hoe" did you mean that?

It sounds like Dexter to me. But even if you dont' think it sounds like Dexter, it most certainly sounds nothing like Davey Havok.

What voice did Davey Havok do on the album?

You can hear him towards the end of "Feelings" when everyone's shouting, so there's one song, he might be in some of the other gang vocals bits as well but I don't know.

Sounds like Dexter to me, it never occurred to me it could be someone else.

a Guitar solo, about 2:30 after the "don't blame me i just work here but i wanna fuck you" part, it would be cool, a solo would fit the song

I think he says dont blame me i just work here, but i wanna fuck it up, not just fuck you

*shrugs* sounds like "fuck you" but you're probably right

I don't think the solo would fit in very well there.

Also, he does say "don't blame me I just work here but I wanna fuck it up"

Dexter sings that. If you pay attention maybe you can recognise his voice. the first time I listened to it I had the same question in my mind,but the next times it was clear enough. :)

the lyrics listings for Spare Me the Details are uncensored on the site
but if u listen to the song on the site, when he says "someone else fucked her", the fucked is bleeped out!
Listen to it!

Well, if it is Dexter, his voice was a little bit different (That's why I hate studio things).

This ahhhhhhhh conversation made me remind of the show back in 2000. This song started the show..... Wicked!

Dexrter sounds awesome when he says the "ahhhhh" shout.

That would've been an awesome way to start a concert.

Indeed. When the show started the ahhhhh thing was great. Then when dexter came up singing* Well I'd like to tell you...* a curtain with the Americana cover appeared at the back of the stage. I cannot forget that.

Astonishing way to start! :)

It was. I don't remember what was the first song in 1997. This starting from Americana Tour was fucking awesome.

Daaamn, girl. You've been a fan longer than most of us on here, huh? I didn't get into them until 2002-ish. So far I've only seen them on the Splinter tour and at The Warped Tour.

Well, I started listening to them back in 1994. I Think Rick is the oldest fan. he started listening to them back in 93, If I'm not wrong. Anyways, It's been a long time now. :)

Wow, I was like 3 when Smash came out :rolleyes: That's pretty hardcore though. OMG, I met a guy on Saturday that said he saw them in '89! :eek: Yeah I was shocked I actually got to MEET a fellow Offspring fan. It so made my night.

That also would've been awesome, except if he had walked out from the smoke that would've looked way cooler.
