Whether you play the bass, drums or guitar, what songs in particular do you find the toughest to play?
I play guitar and for some dumb reason i just cant seem to get burn it up to sound right. Idk if im just not hammering hard enough but thats one of the few songs of theirs that sounds shitty when i play it

After 6 months of playing guitar, i gave Burn It Up a shot and couldn't get it perfect.. :(
So i gave up and thought i'd try later...

Now i have a Burn It Up live video...Dexter does the intro...and it's in power chords... so yeah... i wouldn't even bother learning the hammer on/pull off tabs.. cause it's done in power chords ;)

TKAA intro is kinda difficult with guitar. But really tough songs...damn i dont know dude. Maybe The meaning of life? or Da Hui, Co1, Huck it?
Most offspring songs have fast guitars. That is the difficult part of it, i think

Cant think of a song that is too tough.

The speed makes some song really hard to paly on drums! Only like 8 to 10 songs are so technical that you had to really learn it. Most of the songs that are technical are on Self Titled. But most songs are pretty easy...for me anyway, but for a beginner the fast beat on almost everysong makes them hard for them.

Being that I suck at guitar, I have a bit of trouble with a few of their songs, the most being "Da Hui". I can't play 1% of it. No solo. No rhythm. Nothing.:(

Beheaded was the first song I've learned to play on guitar :D I love playing it :D

I can't play Americana even though I'm trying to learn it for 3 months! it's too fast for me. I almost broke my fingers :D

Well im used to playing some old Metallica and let me tell you, thats speed. the speed you pick up w/ time but they got some weird cool little things they do that i just find hard to make sound right like that lil thing after the intro in way down the line. Just dont sound right. And like burn it up.

Ok, I dont play anything from CO1, I can play everything on Ignition, S/T, and most stuff from Smash. The hardest song to play is The Meaning Of Life and Leave It Behind. On Americana, Americana is kinda tricky, and I have been playing Pay The Man for some time, its really fun!

Most of their stuff is fairly easy. I used to think that their songs were too fast to palm-mute, but that was before I could mute with up-strokes. It makes a huge difference.

On guitar, the hardest songs would probably be Kill the President and D.U.I., which also happen to be my favorite songs.


On drums, one of the hardest would have to be Hypodermic.

Most of the Offspring songs are fun to play on drums and not hard, of course i've been drumming for 6 years so i speak for myself when i say their easy to play. The beats arn't hard just fast. Hypodermic is though for me, i just can't open the hi-hat at the right time and it fucks the whole thing up.

I have no clue. Not too many of them are particularly hard to play.

I'd say the easiest is Self Esteem, except the palm muted part.

i think i choose has a fairly hard bass line. atleast its a bit more complex then many other songs. or maybe the song what happened to you.

I can't think of any that have hard basslines... don't pick it up and what happened to you? have more interesting basslines.

on guitar, I find "race against myself" to be tricky, personally. it's not hard, but I personally struggle. I dont' think any of their songs are really hard... the tricky ones are all in the person who's trying to learn them.

I can actually play all Offspring songs on drums. =/

There are three songs I always have trouble with, though. Lightning Rod, Hypodermic, and for some reason I cannot get Can't Repeat right all the time. I'm like, "WTF! I can play Long Way Home, Session, and Tehran no problem, but WHY THE FUCK CAN'T I GET CAN'T REPEAT RIGHT?"

The meaning of life

For the guitar, Nitro not so easy and i can't do picking ska so what happend to you is kinda hard for me

And the "most" difficult for the bass is like, why dont you get a job and pretty fly...no joke

The TKAA intro ain't easy, unless you're playing it wrong. And there's that one part in Da Hui that's pretty tough.


Still, not the hardest.
