View Full Version : The Offspring Should Try Something Mellow

I've realized that The Offspring has nothing mellow, and I think they should at least give it a shot.

Their depressing songs (i.e. Gone Away, The Kids Aren't Alright) aren't mellow at all, and I'm interested to hear what it would sound like if they did a serious, slow, maybe acoustic song.

What do you think?

they could try a few more "race against myself" style songs.

personally i think not releasing race against myself as a single was the stupidest (is stupidest a word?) decision they ever made.

they would have sold tons! i swear!

i personally think with every new offspring album people are getting more and more tired of the joke songs (eg: pretty fly, hit that)

If they released 2 serious singles ((CGM) HAY and RACE AGAINST MYSELF would've been a good choice for Splinter) i think they get themselves some new fans and a very successfull album.

a mellow album would be a bad idea (although i'd buy it). i'd rather listen to a mix of mellow, depressing, and fast songs.

I totally agree that they should try some mellow...or maybe just not shouting songs, cos in ones like (Can't get my head) around you, at the start Dexter isn't shouting and it sounds really good.

I didn't say a whole ALBUM that should be mellow. I'm just saying that they should mix it up and throw in some slower, easier listening.

And "Denial, Revisited" was mellow, I guess, but that song was so emo, and I didn't really like it that much.

What about Amazed, that's kinda mellowish, isn't it?

I dont know if you have heard about Pass Me By.. but that sounded mellow... I agree Amazed is like that... I couldnt imagine an offspring acoustic though.. it would be cool...

Spare Me the Details was acoustic, was it not?


However, that song was upbeat, and a joke track (I think; if it wasn't...wow...), and I mean something like Good Riddance by Green Day.

Now that you mentioned it, Spare me the details was acoustic, I never realized that! But it wasn't mellow... it was, uuuh... I don't know what it would really be classified as... :confused:

AHHHHHHHHH!!!!! MUST. GET. FILE.

It's a live performance. I think they had some set problems or something, so they brought out some acoustics and did dirty magic acoustic. Someone in the crowd recorded it.

Do you have the file!? If you do, I would greatly appreciate it if you could send it to me.

good point, everyone was like "who is that singing in the beggining?!? at first but yeah Dexter sounded good like that, mellow songs would be cool but I dont like "Denial, Revisted" too much, but they should give it another shot.

Hey what happened to that "Pass Me By" song? that intro was great...

I don't know if I have it any more. I lost a bunch of mp3s a while back and it hasn't turned up. I'll see.

A slow song like Denial, Revisited is cool, But I think they should stick to the punkrock songs

slow acoustic songs isnt really there style, offspring are known for the fast druuming and gutiars, plus id think dexters voice wouldnt match a really slow acoustic song. ya never know, though

Indeed, and I think that song is very good.
