Hey good to hear that they wrote another song and that, from the title, it's not a "joke" song. :) It's nice to get a song title, even though it's nothing important. I think the only options are either no journals, or useless ones. So I'll take the useless ones. :)

It makes me happy even to just know the title of a new song.

Lol, you can read the entire journal in the preview section....you click it hopin' for more, but nope, that's it!

Best journal since the post-marathon one.
Thanks for the updates Dexter it's really great of you to keep us informed.

Remember people that we are not 100% certain yet if this song will be on the album, so don't assume it will be, unless somebody confirms it;)

I guess he finished one of those 13 songs...

I like the title! Kinda like from Ignition or CO1...'Nothing From Something' or 'Million Miles Away'. I get that vibe but the song could be totally different...

I wouldn't call it useless journal...but whatever...I'm happy.

I actually like the song title. Sometimes they kinda drop the ball on song titles, especially when they're multiple words long. Usually they're too cliche (spare me the details) or just lame (why don't you get a job?). So it's nice to see a song with a longer title that's not lame. :)

Woww, this is just a title... calm down everybody ^^
I prefer when he writes nothing and keep those things with him. But maybe it's an indication for the title of the album ? I'm surprised he posts this like that.
I prefer he writes once a month and say something very interesting than twice a week and just give us a title which will maybe not be on the new album.

That wouldn't be a good album title. My favorite album titles from the Offspring are Ixnay on the Hombre and Americana. Ignition and Splinter and Smash were generic, and co1 is too long without being really cool.

Nice, I'm really getting hyped for this new album right now.. I'm even starting to imagine how some songs might sound, though i'll be waaaay off.

Thanks Dex

For some reason this title, "Takes Me Somewhere" makes me think of that demo track "Pass Me By".

Lol, it's the same song he just didn't want to make it look like he was "cheating".

05-18-2007, 04:36 PM
Thats awesome! when i first looked at the journal i thought "oh damn a crappy short one" but infact its probably been the most imformative one of them all about the new album. i thought he meant the new album was going to be called "takes me nowhere" which would be a cool name for an album and then we finally can stop saying "new album"!
but i dunno, i guess he does mean the song, its just, even when i read it again just sorta the context of it makes it sound like the album name, like when he said " this time round we're working with bob rock"
oh well i guess i look stupid.

No where does it imply that the albums is gonna be called that.

"Takes me Nowhere"....hmmm....doesn't sound that much of an Offspring song. But I hope and know it will be a great one.

But we don't want an "Offspring song", we want the NEW Offspring sound, they can't do what they did, we want something new even if it will be the same voice from Dexter and almost the same guys behind their instruments.

05-18-2007, 06:28 PM
yeah!!.. i'm so glad to hear for the first time in three years the name of a song that would be included in the album... i just wanna suggest one thing... it think it would be great if they could put one part of a song (in audio) like a short preview of a song to see what kind of music they made... or what is gonna be about.. because you know all the albums thatoffspring made are totally different each other so that's my opinion...

patoff10
05-18-2007, 06:30 PM
I prefer an entire song than a little part without any signification, so an entire song or nothing for me :p

SuperKnux
05-18-2007, 06:42 PM
How much do you all want to bet this song is not going to be on the album.

Like "Pass Me By" and "You're To Fat To Make Porn" (amongst a lot more) this one will be left in Offspring limbo for many years to come.

: P

Zee
05-18-2007, 06:46 PM
Getting a little bit excited now maybe... still there's the whole summer left so it feels very distant, but I bet in the late of August I'm super excited again. Right now I probably don't even realize that there will be a whole new Offspring album after four long years. ;)

What I know is that on this bbs everyone is too poor to know this song demo of Can't get my Head around you, ask to Dexter if they've uploaded it one day somewhere or if he know that this demo was on the net. I'm so sure of that, it will be the best day of my life if Dexter could say it and upload it to shut your fuckin mouth up. I can say exactly some details of this demo, at the end of the intro voice he made a little wrong note with his voice in the last bass note as he makes maybe sometimes in live, and at the end of the "treble guitar part", in the middle of the song, there was a first "yeah" which start just a little little before a 2nd "yeah" voice.

05-18-2007, 07:17 PM
One of my "friend" made the confusion between the video with Dexter (the same video of "pass me by") and the real entire audio demo. My other "friends" are like you, too noob to know this demo :p

Don't you know that there are lots of fans who are not geeks like you and me ? =) And it's you that told me to get a life lolz. We represent nothing about the Offspring fans.
When I see that some "fans" on the bbs just discover that defy you has an acoustic version, I wonder a lot of things... A lot of old fans don't come to the bbs today, maybe they are not the fans that they used to be too...

HeadAroundU restart to speak about it, this is not my fault, I tell you what I'm sure, I'm not trying to lie to you, maybe I've dream of it, maybe I'm mad, but I'm sure I've download this song on my computer 3 years ago.

Now to throw in a little extra random crap so my post seems on topic... Eh hem. Do the producers [Bob Rock in this case] have anything to do with the song titles? Or do the band decided on that?

I don't think that moderators can ban someone.

And I don't think too that Bob Rock choose the song title. Maybe he can give them a piece a of advice, but I mean The Offspring are the artists and they're doing their music, their art.

I'm not sure, but I think that's it

patoff10
05-19-2007, 05:12 PM
To be serious, I would like to hear more Greg but not really singing, just make more backvoices, because it's Dexter who does often all the backvoices on the albums, while in live, Greg is great to do it (and Noodles too). I don't like hear just the voice of Dexter during 99.9999% of time. So Dexter for the lyrics and Greg & Noodles for the backvoices will be cool :p
And I'm sure the producer has almost nothing to say about a song title... except if the band ask

Dexter_Kyle
05-19-2007, 09:22 PM
I was kind of joking before...
Anyway, I've seen in live shows that Greg does some backing vocals, but to be honest I can't even hear a little bit of his voice. But I would like to hear something from him, I mean speaking :D

Hey guys, I was looking to the other journals that Dexter made in the past, and I just noticed that :

"Ps Trivia for you guys…there was one outtake from Splinter. It was called ‘Pass Me By‘. We really liked it, and all, it was sort of heavy and we just decided to hold off on releasing it. So take that one straight to the BBS!"


Am I wrong or this part wasn't here (http://www.offspring.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/Offspring.woa/wa/journal?journal=430176) before ?

Dexter is awesome for doing the updates often these days.

I've been thinking about this song title. I really think it will have been something that will work to Dexter's lyrical strengths. I can see alot of metaphors coming out of this one, Dexter really is a much better writer than people give him credit for and his lyrical contributions are a major part of why I look forward to the next album.
