In Can't Repeat and (Can't Get My) Head Around You, that's Atom Willard. In every other video is Ron Welty. The reason that there's two is because Ron left the band, and Atom filled in for a while.

Ron Welty was the drummer for the offspring from 1987 to 2003, and was in all of the videos up until Defy You. When Ron Welty quit the band in 2003, Atom Willard took over. He is the one in the videos for Can't Repeat and Can't Get My Head Around You. Atom left the band last year and was replaced by Pete Parada

As said before, ATom Willard appeared in the videoclips, but the drummer for Can't Get My Head (Around You) was Josh Freese, a good friend of the band I guess, as he also helped them for Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace. I can't remeber if Josh Freese also played for Can't Repeat and Defy you, but I think he did.

Ron was still around for Defy You, Can't Repeat is credited to Josh Freese in the GH booklet.

MMM Well... ron Welty was pretty damn good drummer- I mean, he was no Josh Freese, but I think that he was better that... let's say, Bobby Schayer, Pete Finestone, or every AC/DC drummer XD

I like Atom so much, his energy is awesome, Ron was not so "agressive" as Atom. And I havent seen Pete so much so I cant say anything about him

Josh Freese did the drumming on Splinter and Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, but Atom is the one in the videos for Can't Repeat and (Can't Get My) Head Around You. I'm sure Pete Parada will be in the next video.
