I wanted to see which song would win if "all I want" wasn't on the list, and if "hand grenades" was added. :)

Leave It Behind aswell.

A few years ago I got punished at school and had to clean the school square everyday school-day for two weeks until 5pm. Of course I had my discman (MP3 players were up and coming around that time) playing most of the time. I was really into Ixnay at the time, and especially Leave It Behind.

glad to see no brakes is winning... and so alone is losing... my pick and least favorite of the list :P

Now I see... still, remove Da Hui

Llamas
04-02-2006, 10:59 PM
you have to stop that... just because you don't like the song doesn't mean nobody should be able to vote on it. I can't stand so alone- it's possibly my least favorite offspring song- but people are still allowed to vote for it...

You've bagged Da Hui to much and gone far enough, just stop it.

Whoa, Leave It Behind has shot up, it's second now only draggind behind by one vote. I'm glad people like that song :).

Llamas
04-04-2006, 12:44 AM
leave it behind sucks! it's not a song!

hehe jk

Hux
04-04-2006, 12:46 AM
Lol, once I read the first line I'm like wtf!?, you'd never say that :p. Out of curiosity, what don't you like about Leave It Behind?

Hux
04-04-2006, 12:47 AM
Leave It Behind is now equal first with No Brakes! I would've thought that's never happen.

Llamas
04-04-2006, 12:54 AM
"I would've thought that's never happen"? Nice sentence, jackass ;) hehe.

Hmm... what don't I like about Leave it Behind... I think I don't like his voice in it... he normally kinda "shouts" when he sings, but in this one, he really pushes it out. Also, I don't like that the verses sound exactly the same. I don't think I like the overall melody of the verses (maybe it's just cause of his voice). The chorus is alright. I also don't like the lyrics. The message is okay, but they could've done SO much better with the lyrics. Just as far as the offspring is concerned, I think they slacked with the lyrics. Just not their potential. I don't hate the song, but it ranks maybe slightly below Offspring-Average for me :P

Hux
04-04-2006, 01:00 AM
Sorry, I meant "I would've never thought that'd never happen.

I think the lyrics to Leave It Behind are pretty good and I can see what you mean by Dexter shouting in the song (that only being the verses) and yes the verses are similar.

All in all, I love the song, it has a great dark sound to it.

Llamas
04-04-2006, 01:03 AM
Just to be a complete dick... your sentence still doesn't make sense :P I think you meant "I would've never though that would ever happen". If you said "I would have never thought that would never happen", you get a double negative ;) haha I don't really care, I'm just being an ass.

And I can see why people like the song, it's all personal opinion. He does only shout in the verses, but that still annoys me enough, haha. It is really dark... maybe that's part of it, too. Some of my least favorite songs are the darkest... like demons, a thousand days, so alone, leave it behind...

Hux
04-04-2006, 01:06 AM
FUCK! I did it again, I really meant "I would've thought that'd never happen" and also "I would've never thought that'd ever happen" is correct :p.

But what of Amazed? You can't not like that song...can you?

Llamas
04-04-2006, 01:16 AM
I love amazed... it's dark in a different way, I think. Amazed is one of my favorite songs on ixnay. The lyrics are dark, but the music is more anthemic and broad, than really dark and heavy.

Hux
04-04-2006, 01:24 AM
Yeah, Amazed is really anthemic, all parts being spectacular. Dexter sings the song in such a mind-blowing manner, no one could do it better. Definately one of The Offspring's best. An incredible dark song.

Llamas
04-04-2006, 01:29 AM
oh I so agree. It's definitive of the offspring's sound. I love that song to pieces.

Hux
04-06-2006, 01:49 AM
Leave It Behind is winning :eek: :).

Llamas
04-06-2006, 02:05 AM
NOOO! *cries*

btw, I wrote a song that has lyrics which sort of remind me of amazed... though it dervived no inspiration from that song at all.

Hux
04-06-2006, 02:09 AM
Nice, do you mind PMing it to me?

Lightyears
04-06-2006, 07:48 AM
I voted Leave it Behind. That song is amazing. Definatly my fave of the shorties.

Wow, Someone has finally mentioned Leave it behind. I vote for it. :D

Llamas
04-06-2006, 01:02 PM
haha neocon, disclaimer, intermission, time to relax, welcome, intro, and when you're in prison aren't really songs, they're intros and outros ;) neocon is the closest to being a song.

Ninty Man
04-06-2006, 07:14 PM

Lol pretty good...

Sorry.... I just can't :eek:

well, Leave it behind rocks

It was a hard choice, but i went with All Along

My second choice would be either Da Hui or No Brakes.

So Alone and Leave It Behind are really good too though :p
