I could say "Cool To Hate" but that's kinda unfair, the video wasn't exactly a studio produced video. I ALMOST want to say "Gone Away." I can see the vision behind the video... But the song has much more meaning and depth than that... Then again, I tend to try to match videos I make to the lyrics of a song. The video was good, but "Gone Away" is, or is very close to being, my favorite song... So the standard is a bit higher for me on that one.

I'm not touching "Gotta Keep 'em Seperated" and "Self-Esteem." It's unfair to compare them with later videos when the budgets weren't as large as they are now.

I'd say either Shes Got Issues or Hit That

"Gotta Get Away" in my opinion,because that video just didn't do a good job of showing what, i think, the meaning to that song would be. :confused:

Gotta Get Away is about being paranoid and feeling messed up, isn't it? I think the guy who gets mocked in the video kinda shows how it makes you feel. I'd say it totally shows the meaning of the song.

Worst video is, in my opinion, Hit That. I don't like the way the band seems to have nothing to do with the video what so ever.

CGMHAY was just so fucking BORING OH MY GOD.

She's Got Issues, Pretty Fly, and Why Don't You Get a Job are exceptionally bad too.

I agree. And Gotta Get Away is the best video!!!! It is just awesome in every way possible, if they were trying to purely express the meaning of a song in every video we would never see the band. Hit That sucks, although its funny that such an ace band can release such shit. Was it actually supposed to be a joke? It wouldnt surprise me

(Can't Get My) Head Around You. Great song, terrible video. I don't blame them for going for a band video after people complained about Hit That, but it was badly filmed with crap lighting, jerky cameras and 'special' effects that were outdated 30 years ago. It was one of their best singles, they screwed up its chances with the video.

They were pretty quick to notice that to. In the Complete Music Video Collection when they talked about the songs, with every other song there was a meaningfull(ish) description of what it was about and so on. Yet with Hit That, they just went off on random things, not even paying attention to it, then right at the end, Noodles just goes (oh yeh, tht ws the Hit That video right there).

I also fail to see how the kids aren't alright and gone away were chosen. They were possibly their two most meaningful songs, and this came through in the videos in my opinion.

You're right. TKAA is the best videoclip. This song and the video are full of energy

exactly. I agree on both points. they also hated want you bad, noodles said it might be his least favorite video.

I hate the video for "want you bad". ugh, it sucks.

I loved Noodles face in that when some guy tackles him, I didnt like the She's got issues video, just didnt seem like a Offspring video.

Come Out And Play. It's just so......generic. But hey, it was their first video, so I don't mind it too much.

Self Esteem was pretty awful too though. I'm not a huge fan of performance videos.

05-04-2006, 04:36 AM
iŽd say "sheŽs got issues"
the song is ok, but the video is that kinda strange and ....

but which drunkn jerk votet for gone away?

Can't Get My Head Around You. Such a boring video....

Why so much Hit That hate?! I personally find it to be one of my favorite music videos. I guess I appreciate the metaphors within the video that a bunch of you tards probably can't connect.

I didn't really like "Want You Bad". I dunno why, but I wish they would've done something different with it.

Runner up was "Hit That". I thought it had a really cool look to it, but hell, even on the commentary on the music video dvd, Dexter and Noodles seem to hate it.

I really like their Smash-era videos. Probably because they're what initially got me into this band, but I dunno, I like the weirdness of those videos, and oddly enough, I really do think they fit the songs.

So basically you don't like it because Dexter and Noodles don't? That's not a real reason.

I love the Hit That video. It's different, and it's kinda funny.

Maybe I was the only one slightly disturbed the first time I saw it when the guy had his hoodie on, and all you could see is his mouth. You couldn't really tell it was 3D animated until he took the hoodie off, you just knew something wasn't right about him.

I actually enjoyed the video. I thought it was kinda funny. They picked the perfect guy to play the kinda scumbagish guy who is trying to look cool. And the girls they use in it are smokin!

old thread...who cares xD

I'd say Gone Away. It's not that I expect the video to be happier and brighter...it sure wouldn't fit to the music including its lyrics, but I'd have to lie if I said that the video is entertaining or any good.

Offspring-Junkie

"meaning of life" was an awful video, probably the worst
"she's got issues" was bad too
"I choose" was kinda funny, but the konzert version of "All I Want" is my favourite one. "L.A.P.D." on the 13th Floor was funny, especially if someone forgets the lyrics.

Well, The Offspring is not well-known becuz of their videos, but the music. So I think we shouldn't be talking about the worst video but the least-bad video...
I'd say Want you bad, why?? becuz it's a party which I'd really like to be in... :(
