if ur a musician, and you're an offspring fan, you should be able to play their songs on your favorite instrument...even if it's the triangle

what offspring songs can you play and in what instrument??????

I can play every song, except from Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace...mainly cuz I don't have the album yet =]

I can play all the songs on guitar and bass. I can do a good bit on drums as well.

although, I haven't played every song, but I know I can play (Bass) them all, since most songs just "walk" with the guitar.

The only song that took a bit longer to learn was I Choose.

i have an ear for music. ive played every offspring song on the piano before. i get them in about 30 seconds of messing around with a few key. Plus when you do that, its easy to tell how similar smash and trust in you are hahah

I can play nearly all of them in guitar (bass too by default). I might have trouble with one or other solo though.

I play about 10 or so on bass. I'd learn more, but they're not all that interesting. Playing Hammerhead is fun though.

I'm not a musician, but I can play like 30-50% of their songs on guitar.

Offspring songs are kind of easy, so I think the question should be, "what offspring songs you KNOW how to play"; I bet all the people who said they can play all the songs are awesome, but I doubt they know from memory 100+ songs.

I imagine I could still play all of their songs on drums from memory, but I haven't done that in so long, so I don't know. Maybe I'll try that this summer...

I know I can handle them all no problem, but remembering them might be different.

btw, my favorite ones to play are Defy You, I Choose, HAMMERHEAD (incredibly fun drum part, I actually broke a stick in the middle of it), Come Out Swinging (I love fast rolls because I'm tru punx), Self Esteem, and most everything off Ixnay, really.

I normally don't like the fast punk beats with the snare on all the "ands" instead of just two and for, but for whatever reason, Hammerhead is just ridiculous amounts of fun.

I wanna hear someone play an offspring song on triangle. That'd be funny as hell.

I can play pretty much everything on guitar, seeing that they're not the most technically challenging music out there. Some of it is still a fucking blast to play, though.

I think I can at least play 50 songs. Not only from the Offspring.

Arctic Monkeys is fun to play aswell :).

I'm a very slow learner on my bass, and trying to learn Hammerhead right now.

Oh yeah, that's going well.

i can actually play all the songs from memory, it just takes me a few seconds to remember riffs in songs i dont play much.

just asking you because youre a drummer, would you consider Self Esteem an easy song to play on drums? because i dont play drums but I can play that song

I've played guitar about 6 years now and I learned it mostly by myself and with Offspring's records. Usually I just put cd on and play on it, I've never used much of a tabs or anything. First Offspring song I learned was Gone Away and I have to admit that then I used tabs to see the solo parts. I love playing Pay the Man.

Cd's I can play from first song to last are Americana, Ignition and almost Smash, CO1 and Splinter, there might be 2 or 3 songs which are too hard to play, but I'm working on it.

Now I've been trying to play guitar tribute songs also without tabs..

I am learning Gone Away acoustic now, really nice to play, love it. Gonna upload it at Youtube soon, so please check it out. My new youtube account is "Styylie".

Yeah, rhymically that one's easy, but Ron really grooves well on that one, which is something that many many drummers can't do anymore.
