What is so bad about this song? I enjoy listening to this song every time I hear it. I would like to know why some people here absolutely hate it.

People need to not make so many threads saying "whats wrong with this song?" or "whats wrong with this album?". Everyone has thier own opinions. Who gives a shit. Personaly i love the song, but if people don't like it that much it doesn't affect you. You don't have to make a whole thread about it.

Although I’m not sure if a new thread is needed for this, I personally am not a huge fan of the song becomes it comes off as a bit too “nu-metal/alt-rock” for my liking. The band can write a great harder sounding song (see Defy You) and it can sound awesome, this time however, not so much. Although just prior to the release of RAFRAG I’ve been listening to Splinter a lot, and I like it now a lot more then I did when I first heard it, but its still arguably one of the weakest songs the band has ever written.

I do think this deserves a thread. I'd rather see this than a tenth about who sings the verses in "A Lot Like Me".

About the topic at hand, can't help you, bud. I love "Race Against Myself".

I've always wondered the same thing. I always found it to be one of Splinter's stronger tracks.

i don't like that song because it is boring.
i usually like dark slow songs of the offspring, but this song has never connected with me.

Actually it's one of my faves on splinter. And the chorus is very typical offspring imho.

The song is great!! One of my favourites on Splinter.

I don't know why you guys dislike it?...because it's "hard"/boring...People will always find something to bitch about. But that's the way it goes

metal rulez! and RAMY is amazing. someone I know called it an 'epic' song, along with half truism.

Splinter is definitely not metal, but it's heavier than the other offspring albums. it's great anyway.

MMM

Is boring, is pretty much an average lyric from offspring, and the sound makes me piss off

HAHA, they did it better than offspring. She has a beautiful voice. Really heavy guitar.

I have to admit that I didn't like it in the very beginning. I was like WTH, and I was dead wrong.

Oh, damn I love it. I like that hard metal sound, or am I wrong that it has a metal sound? The whole song is fantastic.

I guess some people don't like it 'cause they haven't heard me singing it. ^_-

I can't speak for anyone but myself of course, but the reason I dislike it is because it sounds like every generic post-grunge song ever recorded, and the lyrics are just as bad. I give the Offspring credit for trying something new, but that doesn't mean the experiment worked.

This is exactly why I dislike it. Thank you kind sir.

the song needed some time, but now it's one of the better songs on splinter, together with lightning rod.
