I got this from Rate Your Music, where, obviously users can rate their albums/singles etc. out of 5. I was looking through The Offspring's singles section to find some pretty interesting overall ratings for the songs. Ranked from lowest rated to highest rated, here they are.

19. Can't Repeat - 2.73
18. Original Prankster - 2.74
17. Why Don't You Get A Job? - 2.76
16. Defy You - 3.04
15. I Choose - 3.18
14. Hit That - 3.19
13. Pretty Fly (For A White Guy) - 3.25
12. The Meaning of Life - 3.43
11. Self-Esteem - 3.43 (but more votes than TMOL)
10. Want You Bad - 3.55
9. I'll Be Waiting - 3.61
8. Come Out And Play - 3.68
7. She's Got Issues - 3.71
6. The Kids Aren't Alright - 3.83
5. Gotta Get Away - 3.84
4. (Can't Get My) Head Around You - 3.89

now the top 3...All I Want, Million Miles Away and Gone Away

3. Gone Away - 4.00

2. All I Want - 4.02

1. Million Miles Away - 4.03

surprised these songs got so high - She's Got Issues, Want You Bad, CGMHAY, Million Miles Away

I agree with CR being at the bottom. I never really liked that song. The first time I heard it, I thought, "okay, the Offspring are pretty much done. They wrote a boring and generic pop song for their greatest hits record so that their hardcore fans would buy an album of songs they already have."

I'm not surprised Gone Away was so high... it's one of the best-known songs by the band, and it's pretty good. I'm shocked MMA was number one, though. That's insane.

I also am pissed want you bad is so high. That should've been number 19 for sure.

One of the best off co1, but not their best single.

of the songs on the list, my favorites are I'll be Waiting, TKAA, Gone Away, I Choose. Any of those should be at the top, but I wouldn't expect IBW to be.

Personally i've never liked I'll Be Waiting as much as everybody else seems to, what's it's single main appeal?

The lyrics impressed me but I don't seem to get the catchyness (real word?), I have a similar opinion on Forever And A Day and I guess it might just be a maturity differance.

I don't think I'll Be Waiting is that catchy... I just think it's really well written... the guitar solo at the beginning is great, the song progresses really well, the lyrics suit the atmosphere really well, etc.

Damn llamas-loving woman, correcting the man!

It's the best song off CO1 which also means that it's one of the best off CO1. :p :rolleyes:

It's not even a proper single so I wouldn't compare it. :p
