I was wondering, which is the Offspring song you enjoy playing the most?
Personally, I love playing Can`t Get my Head Araund You, because it`s easy and effective.
But the best, in my opinion, is Hook It: I love the damn bridge, and the verse as well.What do you guys think?

(I didn`t put this thread in Your Band, because I don`t belong to any group actually...)

Pay the Man

Why? It`s rather difficult, if you are playing it alone.

To name three with drums and guitar

With drums it's fun to play Pay The Man, Gotta Get Away and The Noose.

With guitar it's fun to play Get it Right, Genocide and Come out And Play.

Many songs are fun to play. But many songs have a similar "punk-beat", so they are not that fun to paly all the time. Except No Brakes and Conspiracy Of One are the most fun "punk-beat" songs to play with drums.

For some reason I really like playing Amazed on guitar, and I can do the I Choose bass part on my axe which is very fun too.

All-time, all-band favorite though : The Memory Remains, by Metallica.

Any song that's easy for me to play really. The most enjoyable are probably:

Blackball, Kill the President, Dirty Magic, Nothing from Something, The Meaning of Life, I Choose, Gotta Get Away, Come Out and Play, Million Miles Away (If i can play it properly :)), Staring at the Sun, The Kids Aren't Alright, Pay the Man, The Noose, (Can't Get My) Head Around You.

The songs in bold, I thoroughly enjoy playing :D (All Guitar)

Well I haven't looked up Offspring tabs in a while, but I enjoy playing the riff from Hit That, and I used to know the riff from Come Out And Play.

The Kids Aren't Alright was the 3rd song I learned on guitar (way back in the day), so I'm always partial to that one. I find Bad Habit to be a blast as well.

If you can PLAY, the more difficult stuff is often the most fun.

Which is why this shouldn't be limited to Offspring songs...
I kid, I kid.

I don't often play their songs anymore, though when I did (and sometimes still do) The Kids Aren't Alright, Genocide, Dirty Magic, and some Self Titled stuff were my favourite to play

I really like playing gotta get away and come out and play (the riff is simple but fucking awesome!). If you are in a band, try the noose! It's amazing for the whole band.

I like staring at the sun if I play alone,
in my old band I used to play all the time with the other guitarist Million Miles Away ,
and also Can't Get My Head Around You is pretty cool song :)

For Guitar I'd have to say:

Can't Repeat
Defy You
Self Esteem

You couldn't learn drums??? it's damn easy.

BTW... the most easy and cool song of offspring it's come out and play... it has good moments

I played the ELECTRIC drums for 5 minutes. Do expect me to be good? Geez, I'm only a lvl 46 guitarist! I don't even have the upgrade for perfect pinch harmonics yet and I've been playing for a whole year! I'll never be pure ownage :(

I play bass, so I'd say:
Gotta Get Away, Gone Away, She's Got Issues, Million Miles Away, The Kids Aren't Alright, Can't Repeat... but the last two I mentioned are terribly simple and boring on bass, you have to play it with a band to make it sound it nice.

The riff is just so fun when you learn it..

On drums, I like to play Hyodermic, Tehran, Kill The President, and Lightning Rod because of their difficulty. I play Meaning of Life, Americana, Dammit I Changed Again, The Noose, Long Way Home, and Defy You not because they are difficult, but because they are just plain fun.

My favorite is Staring at the Sun, it is full of energy, but only on rehearsals 'cause most people here can't recognize it so it is not a great song live. I think my favorite offspring song live is TKAA, it has a great solo and most people get into it because of the "uo ohs" between each line.
