i think all along is a great song. although its kinda a filler song on CO1 i still think its one of the best songs on the cd. what do you guys think of this song?

Such a great post until that word. The only song on that album, or any Offspring song for that matter, that even comes close to emo is Denial, Revisited.

And no, Want You Bad is not about a guy that wants a girl badly. ;)

Emo is a SOUND more than a lyric topic.

Older Green Day is about looking at girls in libraries and being too shy to say anything to them (and the music reflects that), not S&M-type shit.

Additionally, "All Along" is fucking fantastic.

WOW!!! its weird how our tastes in offspring songs are so different. All along is my least fav offspring song (after a few covers like Killboy Powerhead and Feelings - hate it). On the other hand, the other guy said that Living in chaos is the worst song on that cd. Well Living in chaos is my combined fav song ever along with Gotta get away.

I dont know what it is, but i REALLY dont like All along. But the other day I amazed myself when i actually liked All along.

Co1 is probably one of my favorite albums from them... It ranks among The Offspring, Ignition, Smash, Ixnay, Americana and Splinter... What? I don't have a favorite album. Though it has a bit of sentimental value to me since it was the first Offspring CD that I listened to. I just don't get how people say Co1 was a terrible album, it has some okay songs... And quite a few gems on it.

All Along is definately a great song, it's a little short for my taste, but then again, All I Want is a short song and look how hard that song rocks.

Llamas
03-31-2006, 11:20 PM
co1 has some pure shit (original prankster, want you bad, special delivery, one fine day, all along), a LOT of mediocre songs (come out swinging, dammit, denial, conspiracy of one) and a few GOOD songs (MMA, living in chaos, vultures). In the end, it averages out to be a really average album. That's why I rank it at the bottom.

and all along... it's too simple and boring, it doesn't sound like a song they spent more than 4 minutes writing. That's why I think it's filler.

want you bad is NOT emo. Emo is not a sound of music- if it is, how do you define that sound? and even if you can define it, want you bad doesn't sound ANYTHING like fall out boy, or juliana theory, or dashboard... etc. want you bad is a crappy pop punk song.

Yeah, conspiracy is too "Prankster and Want you bad"No way! It is not! There are only Original Pranster and Want You Bad (maybe One Fine Day) that style on CO1 (if you mean it's poppy), all the other songs are different style and I think on CO1 there are lots of different styles, but in the end, I like this album. There is something indescribably what I love on this one.

How is emo not a sound of music? Modern mainstream emo definitely has a sound to it. Early emo just sounded like regular hardcore so it didn't have a sound, but new emo definitely has a specific sound, which is why all of the bands sound the exact same.

Contradiction, much?

Anway, to the kid that said something like "I don't see how people dislike CO1 so much", my answer is this:

CO1 just isn't that interesting and the songs are just kind of dull. The Offspring's best work had this spark to it and made it sound great even if it wasn't the most original music ever made. CO1, however, lacks that, and fails as an album because of that.

I dunno, I think CO1 has a few of their more original songs. Living in Chaos and Special Delivery are high spots, and One Fine Day is a bit new for them even if that song is godawful. But I see what you mean with the spark. My main beef is that the album reeks of overproduction.

So at the moment, what is your least favourite Offspring song, why, and could you give a rating for it. Most of the songs you don't enjoy have a diverse range of style.

Damn. Least favorite is probably "Want You Bad". It's hard to say. Splinter is the only album I skip songs on, but it's always all the songs after "Lightning Rod". I probably wouldn't skip them if it wasn't the entire rest of the album. Want You Bad is my least favorite because it has nothing original about it.
Lyrically: The lyrics are boring, and he's singing about something that I don't think he could possibly really mean. I don't see Dexter having written that song because he really meant it- I see him having written it to be "funny". And it fails as a funny song. The lyrics aren't clever, they don't make me think, and they don't make me feel or smile. They're just lame.
Musically: Every time this song comes on when I'm not expecting to hear the Offspring, LITERALLY, my first thought is "god, I HATE pseudo-pop/punk" thinking it's like blink 182 or good charlotte. The song sounds VERY generic and by-the-book pop. The guitar sounds, the chord progressions, the hooks... everything about it is so standardized. There's not an ounce of creativity or imagination in the music to this song.

Basically, many of their songs lack either lyrically or musically, just like Want You Bad, but no other songs by them COMPLETELY fail in both departments. That is just my opinion, and I don't mind that nobody else agrees with me. :)

It's just it starts of really soft and the verse is soft, and then when it gets to the chorus it's much heavier. Also when the bridge starts it's again really soft slowly building up and up until he yells "GOD HELP ME", and then the chorus kicks in. It also ends soft.

That's the difference in style I meant.
