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

Neocon....

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

I'm gonna have to go with the noose, it's just a really good song. One of my favorite offspring songs so far.

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.

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

Jennifer, Session, Nitro and Come out Swinging are cool, but I chose Half-Truism.

I'm gonna have to go for Half-Truism! I love that quiet little intro.. then the guitars break in and its awesomeness.

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.

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

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.

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.

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...

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

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

Steph
06-27-2008, 03:39 PM
I voted The Noose...
But I can bet that tomorrow I would choose sth else...:D

Come Out Swinging
