Any University of Southern Cal goers here? I'm currently watching the USC and Notre Dame game and I could swear the band was playing "The Kids Aren't Alright" during a challenge timeout. It sounded pretty cool to me. Can anyone verify this?

They've done "Come Out And Play" and "Hit That" quite often, too.

Pretty sure some other Offspring songs too, since Dexter's an alumni and all.

A lot of college marching bands play shitty arrangements of offspring songs. When I was in the U of M band, we used to play Pretty Fly and Come Out and Play. Both arrangements sucked, but it's really common. The reason the arrangements suck so much usually, though, is because most marching bands don't have the money to ask each band they use a song from for permission. So, they have someone arrange it for the band and change enough rhythms and such so that it's completely legal to use, but still recognizable. If you see the sheet music, they usually mess with the song titles.
