I'm not making this up. I saw this on a website, and thought it was bullshit of course, but I still need to show it here. If you think this is pointless well, you don''t have to read every thread. I hardly read any, so many are pointless.
anyways...

here is what I copied off of the website,

WORST SONGS OF ALL TIME

The Offspring/Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)
First, to fully understand the reason why this song is so bad, one needs to listen to early Offspring albums, such as TotalImmortal and Ignition. Now listen to this song, and you have a large reason why this bites. However, the lick taken from Def Leppard might have made this song decent, if its was not for all of the rap influences present in this track. Again, I am a big fan of rap and punk, but the two do not mix well, much like the Eve featuring Gwen Stefani track Let Me Blow Ya Mind.

It is one of the worst songs made by them, but there are worse on that very album. And the worst song of all is original prankster anyway.

I think Total immortal and ignition are overrated albums anyway.

pretty fly shouldnt even be an option, really. at the time it was released, in australia the song was a huge success, and it had to have something going for it. in hindsight the song was a bit tradgic though, but definately not as bad as OP

Whoever made the website that said that is a big fat jackass!
He got a song mixed up with an album!
What kind of fucking assholes are they?

I'm so damn sick of people dissing any song by the Offspring or anything that has to do with them!
If you want a perfect example, go see the "new album" thread.
The guy who started that thread, I just can't stand!

My computer says it's geocities.com/Drakulon666/Rants/worstsongs.
And since it said 'geocities', then I hate them even more!
They ruined the website called BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD'S WORLD, which is another reason I hate those fuckers!

I totally agree... If there's one song I just CAN'T STAND and I TRULY HATE, is Pretty Fly... when i heard it.. it just made me so, so, soooo sad...
I love Offspring punk sound, I love they're albums, but.. when they released Pretty Fly.. I just felt SO dissapointed...

Everyone was singing it... even those dorky I-don't-like-rock people loved it. And the radio stations played it over, and over, and over... It made me sick!!

As i said before in another thread... whenever I'm listening to my Americana album.. I ALWAYS skip track 4 (PF4WG) :mad:

Dexter wouldnt shed any tears over it, he has said it a bunch its one of those songs you love at first, then hate, and he is proud of it!

I dont like the song too much, but it got the Offspring bigger so in that respect I like it.

The worst Offspring song is Feelings.
Pretty fly is pop.But it's good pop.
And has a message behind it.

Well, similarly Iron Maiden had their first #1 with 'Bring your daughter to the slaughter' and it won a golden rasberry (Worst song of the year), but it still brought the song to people's attention.

Pretty Fly brought the Offspring to a lot of people's attention. Not keen on the song now though- it got old fast. But it brought them to my attention. I hadn't heard of The Offspring before that. I think it brought them to a lot of people's attention. Looking back, I don't think it was a great song, but whether it was the worst released...I expect there were far worse. It wasn't until I played Crazy Taxi that I bought Ixnay on the hombre (the 1st of their albums I bought)

The original version of feelings was nominated for worst song, but not the one Offprng made. I think they all suck

Let's clear something up. Totalimmortal was an AFI song covered by the Offspring, but it was never an Offspring album
