Hey people,
I've been a member for a couple of months now, one song that I rank within my top 5 that never gets mentioned here is "The Meaning Of Life" from Ixnay.
Just so much quality and so many reasons to dig it.

- They way it follows the "Disclaimer" with a killer-riff and extra volume.
- Awesome melodies and lyrics from Dexter throughout
- One of the most catchy-chorus in Offspring
- Also, a great song from a tab-perspective for guitarists, challenging and original

Maybe I'm seeing the wrong threads but it just dosnt get mentioned and I wondered if any light could be shed on as to why...

Cheers,
DStobbs

i love that song, is one of my favorites, and, since I dont remember the other songs on ixnay right now i'll say this is my favorite one from that album. the lyrics are really good and kind of was related to them not so long ago

Why don't you people analyse it deeper other than "yes, i agree"?

yeah after the disclaimer it seems that the guitar is more out spoken and LOUD !!! In fact most of the Ixnay songs seem to have a louder song quality.

One to ponder on. :cool:

It wasn't a HIT.

Back to the topic: TMOL is an awesome song, but I can say that there are plenty of songs that are better.. (Offspring songs of course)

I used to really like The Meaning of Life, but now I think it's too boring and annoying. It might be a bit too catchy for me. "Ohhh yeeeeeah, ooooh yyeeahh, oooh yeahhh" =/

Wait, you live in Finland now? Traitor...

Haha, typical swede! I have lived on the border for 12 years, and I finally moved to Finland :) By the way, I'm 100% finnish.

You've lived on the border? Woah, do you even have electricity there? Pretty cool though.

Was it released in the US? I dont think it was in the UK. But that and "Million Miles Away" should been on the greatest hits for sure.

Meaning Of Life is an awesome song.

The chorus is great and I love the "oh yeah, oh yeah".

But there are many other Offspring songs which are better than MOL.

I really like the song! The guitar riff that starts little bit after 2 minutes is so amazing! It sounds so powerfull! And the song is great live! At least the video I have from Rockpalast from -97 is so awesome! The whole show is.

Meaning of Life is probably my Second Favourite song on Ixnay, just missing out to Change The World or Me And my old lady (simple yet killer riff :p) that song has powerful lyrics and an awesome riff- definetly in my top 5.

If you ask me, I would say that The Meaning of Lifeis one of the best Offspring`s songs. Incredible lyrics and one of the best chorus! :D

I'd like to compare it with Da Hui from Splinter. It's not very complicated song compared to other offi songs but it has something basically amazing.
You must be born on the right place to make song like this.

You gotta learn the difference between SINGLE and HIT.
