why isn't bad habit on the poll? it was a great opening to Soundwave in Sydney

That was difficult...It was a tie between Half-Truism and The Noose...The Noose won...

I consider it a song. A short song.

It's also the best concert opener. When I saw them in NYC in 2004 the whole crowd came to life instantly. It was really pretty awesome in the original sense of the word.

I'm having a really hard time between picking between Session, Half-Truism, and Have You Ever....

I think i'm going to go with Session by a very close margin, since i'm kind of penalizing Half-Truism due to it being brand new. Session is just the ultimate punk song.

Session followed by Have you ever and Come Out Swinging

06-26-2008, 08:38 PM
yep. session.

06-26-2008, 08:48 PM
have you ever!!!!

06-26-2008, 10:56 PM
I'm gonna have to go with the noose, it's just a really good song. One of my favorite offspring songs so far.

Jennifer Lost the War - No.
Session - no.
Nitro - no.
The Meaning of Life - I like this one.
Have You Ever - eh.
Come Out Swinging - I like this one.
The Noose - No.
Half-Truism - No.

its a hard choice
i like it whentime to relax finishes and the fast drumming comes in
or the end of disclaimer then meaning of life kicks in.
ill go with meaning of life.

Come out swinging has so much energy, its not the best song, but i think its the best one to open up the album

06-27-2008, 01:31 AM

06-27-2008, 02:05 AM
Session ! :)

06-27-2008, 03:02 AM
Jennifer, Session, Nitro and Come out Swinging are cool, but I chose Half-Truism.

Session! :D

06-27-2008, 05:08 AM
I'm gonna have to go for Half-Truism! I love that quiet little intro.. then the guitars break in and its awesomeness.

06-27-2008, 05:45 AM
The good thing about The Offspring's oppening songs is that all of them are great openers - every first song (maybe except The Noose) shows the concept of it's album. You listen the first song and you can taste the spirit of whole album. And every band's album was abit different than others. And allmost all of the openers are powerful messages to begin the whole thing.

06-27-2008, 05:46 AM
Session, although The Meaning Of Life comes close to it.

06-27-2008, 08:06 AM
It was hard but I cannot explain why Have you ever gets to me.

MMM even I think Splinter is a dissapointment... I must recogniza Neocon/The noose- I think they are the same song XD- are the perfect beginning

06-27-2008, 08:52 AM
MMM even I think Splinter is a dissapointment...

...wow...you say that like ur there biggest fan ever.

06-27-2008, 09:01 AM
Half-Truism definitely:cool:. The quiet little intro starts and then the guitars burst in. Really sounds like an opener. Have You Ever and session would be my runner ups

06-27-2008, 09:16 AM
Went with Session. Reminds me of myself.

Session, I'll never learn. Session, God knows I've tried. Keep coming back for sessions and I don't know why.

06-27-2008, 10:11 AM
I love that Half-Truism has that noise at the beginning. But I also really like Session as an opening song.

and for live shows, I'd choose Bad Habit (they played it at the only show I've ever been) , All I Want or Session.

06-27-2008, 12:12 PM
jennifer is a great one....opens really well!...i like it...but i would prefer crossroads as a opening song in that album...

06-27-2008, 12:15 PM
This is one thing The offspring have ALWAYS done incredibly well. You can always expect the first song on an Offspring album to be one of the best they've ever done. I don't even think I can pick a best opening song...

06-27-2008, 02:32 PM
Come Out Swinging
Never understood why people don't really care for this song.

I voted Come Out Swinging, really good (opening) song.

06-27-2008, 02:39 PM
I voted The Noose...
But I can bet that tomorrow I would choose sth else...:D

06-27-2008, 02:48 PM
Half-Truism, maybe because i've listened only to it for 3 days

06-28-2008, 12:22 AM
Half Truism, because it create a great atmosphere with the armonics, and then came in the strong guitar annd itss beautiful!

06-28-2008, 07:13 AM
I'd rank them:

Have You Ever
Jennifer Lost the War
Come Out Swinging
Meaning of Life
The Noose

06-28-2008, 08:50 AM
Have you ever

the worst is by far half-truism horrible song...the worst offspring did to date

cool 2 hate 681

the worst is by far half-truism horrible song...the worst offspring did to date

it has 22 votes:confused: i think it's only because people are too much in love with the new album right now

Come Out Swinging

Never understood why people don't really care for this song.

call me crazy but i think this is within the top 3 best songs on co1
