I will NEVER agree. Without this song written and released, a lot of people here(including me) could not ever start listening to punk rock music in general! Okay I got a little mad.

hmmmm

i think that's the worst song if we dont include When you're in prison, intermission.. those arent songs, only tracks

i think Pretty fly is the worst song cause Offspring made a shit starting from a good base (or demo song). its guitars sounded great, but when they added the girls singin' "ah ah, ah ah" they made a big... shit? i dont know what to call it.

i think Original prankster and Pretty fly, are the same kind of song, the worst Offspring could do :mad:

Manzanubrio
05-13-2008, 10:49 AM
Feelings? that's a good song... very fast intro... calmed voice... i like it

Americana album sounds great (except pretty fly :mad:)

Pretty Fly is a prefect song of mockery directed towards wiggers. (White people who think they are black). I hate wiggers. So I don't hate it.

I don't like Me & My old lady. I just think it's boring.

You hate it because it's a cover? I don't hate it, I just don't listen to it very often.

Pretty Fly is a great song, I dont know what you guys are talking about. Hit That and Original Prankster definately suck more than Pretty Fly.

Me & my old lady is a strange song, out of Offspring's style. that isnt pure rock, that's more or less, dark rock, i think :rolleyes: but i like it

another strange song is Race against myself... i think it's similar to Me & my old lady... but Race against myself is more boring than M&MOL :D

both are songs out of Offs' style..

Hit that has pretty clever lyrics, such pretty fly... Original Prankster has lame lyrics but good rhythm.MMM I think the worst is so alone

How can you say it's the worst song, if you have its lyrics on your sig?

I really like Pretty Fly, if it wasn't for that song I'd probably never have listened to The Offspring in the first place. It's not only a catchy song, but its lyrics are funny, too.

There are Offspring songs with way worse lyrics and way less creative music. If it were by all you trupunx we'd get the same Offspring punk song repeated endlessly in every album. Just like The Ramones songs... hehe.

i have its lyrics in my sig cause i'm from spain and they sing in spanish :p

it happens the same to me, if i didnt listened to it, i'd maybe never listened to Offspring, but i think that's the worst song, anyway :D

No I don't hate this song because this is cover.
"I wanna be sedeated" this is cover too and I like this song very much . I don't know why I don't like "feelings" .Always when this song begin to play on my media player I skip it for next song. I just do not like it. That's all.

No, stuff like feelings, no brakes, living in chaos, not the one, so alone, me and my old lady etc are all worse

but we're here to debate about our tastes, no? :D

I think this is all incredibly subjective and no amount of debate is ever going to get people to agree. It got an awful lot of attention for a supposedly "bad" song so that should say something right there.

Just so you know, "wigger" is an offensive term. Think about it.

Pretty Fly's a great song, it's just those girl voices and the 'aha aha' which makes it sound cheesy. I love the guitar and Dexter's aggressive voice.


no brakes
Excuse me?


living in chaos
Excuse me?


not the one
Excuse me?


me and my old lady
EXCUSE ME?!

Glad we can agree on feelings and so alone ;).

Hmm although now you make me doubt about me and my old lady.

Not the one: after the first minute, the chorus is just repeated until the second minute. They could have just cut a minute out of the song ;).
Living with chaos: don't like the effects on dexter's vocals on some parts. The "falling" screaming part is pretty awesome though
No Brakes: was never a fan of that though, seemed to me always like all i want version 2.0 .. After the first minute , the chorus just gets repeated and it isn't that good.

This said, I'd be happy if they would replace pretty fly with any of those songs in live shows (because we've heard pretty fly a zillion times and it does get more boring than some of the other hits). Living in chaos was really good live although they use samples on that one. No brakes would be pretty sweet cause they have never played that one live and it's pretty energetic. Can't remember them playing not the one live either though.

Pretty Fly was the song that got me into the Offspring when I was 9 years old. It is definitely not their best, but most certainly not their worst.

Worst songs, IMO:

Why Don't You Get A Job
When You're In Prison
Worst Hangover Ever

But if you ask people who are not into The Offspring, usually Pretty Fly and Why Don't You Get A Job? are the only two songs they can think of.

Feelings IS NOT a cover, it's a parody.

NO BRAKES?? no brakes it's a damn fucking cool song!! hard drums, strummed and heavy guitars, fast riff, great voice...!! I love it!

M&MOL?? It's a different song but I like it so much, dexter's voice awesome and it has a great solo. I like the vibe on it.

FEELINGS? many hate it but I don't; it's fast, and has another great solo, a really cool song!

RAM? It has strong guitars, i like it too, maybe not the best, but not the worst.

everyone don't like a song for some reason, but in the end there isn't a song I really find unearable. For me the 2 songs i like the least are not the one and all along. This one is a cool song, but it just doesn't take me so much :D

Why the fuck everyone dislikes Not the One? It's one of the best Offspring songs. I don't understand that...

I don't really consider any song the band has created to be horrible. I'll always have a spot in my heart for Pretty Fly, considering that was the song that introduced me to the band. I actually like a lot of the tracks that have been posted here, ie (No Breaks, Feelings, Me and My Old Lady, etc).

The three songs that i consider to be the weakest in the band's lineup are Worst Hangover Ever, Original Prankster and Race Against Myself. Now don't get me wrong, i kind of like these songs, and will sometimes still listen to them, but compared to other stuff the band has created, these three pale in comparison.

Edit: but yeah, silly thread.

Thing is: Threads like this take us nowhere. There will always be somebody whose favorite song is a song that is the worst for another.

Not the One may be repetitive, but it is damn awesome anyway.

So is No Brakes.

I like every song of them,but as the weakest in comparison i would choose Why Donīt You Get A Job and Original Prankster.Only my personal opinion.

I like those songs too, I just think they are worse than pretty fly. Not that I'll play pretty fly (nice heavy guitars, good sounding vocals, catchy). Simply because if you were around in 98-99, it got overplayed just a bit ;). It was just an exciting time then. They have a lot of better songs though.

I'll let people enjoy their not the one if they consider that to be the best song on smash. I'll just keep it with something to believe in , it'll be a long time, bad habit, self esteem etc.

Last post I'll probably make in this topic, cause it's all so subjective anyway which makes it pointless.
