How come this song isnt played live anymore. it was released but it was only played on the co1 tour not the splinter tour or the greatest hits tour.

i think its one of their best songs

just wondered if there was any perticular reason??

Probably just to make room for another song. Too bad though, it's one of my favorites, especially live.

there are a lot of good songs that are no longer played, if they did that the playlist for every show would go huge

making a playlist for live shows has got to be sooooo damn hard. like, you want to play stuff the hardcore fans like, but you want to play the popular stuff, but you only have about 22 songs you can totally pick. This is part of why I don't want them to hit it huge again... their concerts will be nothing but a bunch of halfass radio fans, and they'll only play all their hits and new songs because that's what the fake fans want to hear.

that how it is going right now, they play the new songs and all their hits, i dont see them playing old stuff like, something from ignition, doesnt even the other great songs on smash.

they play dirty magic, session, beheaded, and bad habit, gotta get away, smash, what happened to you... atleast once, all in the Splinter tour. They get as big as americana or smash, and we won't ever hear those songs again...

i have another topic about this song:
I'm pretty sure there was a video for this song, but when i got the video collection DVD the video was strangely missing...

Llamas

I noticed that same thing. I also figured it would be under "bonus videos", and couldn't figure out why that shitty "cool to hate" video was there and not mma.

I have atleast 4 live versions of session from concerts post-2000 on my computer, and atleast 3 live versions of dirty magic from concerts post-2000. I've heard them play "beheaded" live.

Maybe The first four songs of CO1, and CO1 itself and Huck it, with Special Delivery, are the best songs to be play... but...

too bad the only songs from co1 they still play is want you bad and original prankster, but i would apreciate hear they playing million miles away in the next tour, that would be so great, i mean, this is one of the best songs in co1 and they never play it :(

There could have been so many singles from CO1...too bad they chose Want You Bad and didn't release many singles.

Want you bad it's a good song... but maybe they could choose Conspiracy

It's good, but nowhere near as good as any of the other songs on CO1.

Llamas

I think want you bad is possibly the worst offspring song ever.

whenever I hear it start playing without expecting it (like on the radio or at a friend's house), the beginning starts and I don't realize it's offspring right away and I think "ugh, I hate this blink 182 poppunk bullshit..." and then I realize it's offspring and feel bad for thinking that... plus the lyrics blow.

And in my opinion denial and Vultures are kinda sucka

I agree, though I'm not saying it's shit, it's just not nearly as good as their other songs.

Llamas

I can understand not caring for denial... not liking vultures seems odd to me... and loving want you bad seems insane :)

vultures has a nice dark sound and quite decent lyrics... plus it's definitely got the signature offspring sound to it.

Hopefully if you listen to the songs a few times you'll learn to like them.

seems fairly ignorant to deem a song as "kind of sucking" when you haven't even really given it a good listen...

Stop bitching around and listen:

When all the rhytm that I like conspiracy, denial and Vultures break it, and makes me piss off...

But... I can listen them.. and maybe ill like them, but not love them, just like Gone Away

Hux

It's fair enough to say you don't like a song, that's respectable, but to bag it isn't appropriate. You must also give the song a go.

On the CMVC on the Want You Bad voice over with Dexter and Noodles, Dexter said "this song still goes down really well live"

or something close to that, so yeah... probably why they still play it...though i really hope they play something better than that this next tour around, let's hear Nitro!!! lol

Llamas
02-27-2006, 11:29 PM
well it's clear that they didn't put a ton of effort into that album... I don't think they were exactly proud of it... I wouldn't expect them to play much off it.

It's better than Splinter and Americana

Llamas
02-27-2006, 11:42 PM
oh I disagree... co1 (while I love everything the offspring has done) was their worst and it was seriously totally formulaic pop music... there were a few good songs on there... americana was much better, especially with it being a concept album...

bd007h
02-27-2006, 11:50 PM
so what if it was a concept album? It's still more watered down pop-punk than CO1

Yes, I agree 100%, it's a fucking shame they don't play it live anymore. I'd trade it GLADLY for Want You Bad (the only CO1 song they play live since Splinter was released)

Never been to San Antonio... interested in gonig there, though.

I think that CO1 is more watered down than americana... want you bad, denial revisited, original prankster, special delivery, one fine day... I dunno, it's just opinion.

I don't really call them pop-punk anymore, just modern rock. I mean, Americana was the closest to pop-punk, and look at it compared to say, Green Day or Blink. It's a completely different type of music.

But to the main point, I think they should play MMA and give it more credit. That was the first song I heard by The Offspring and one of my favorites. I think the rest of CO1 sounds more pop than any other albums except Americana.

S/T-Ixnay = punk/rock
Americana and CO1 = pop
Splinter+ = punk/pop rock

neocon58
03-01-2006, 01:47 AM
S/T - Ignition: Christian Rap
Smash: RnB
Ixnay: Folk
Americana: Noise
Co1: Metalcore
Splinter: Screamo



meaning, who the fuck cares?

Lenny

Haha now imagine Splinter being a screamo album.
