As the thread title explains, what 10 Offspring songs in your opinion are always near perfect or better than the studio recordings. Obviously, they play everything pretty well, but stick to 10. Here's mine:

1. Gotta Get Away
2. Kick Him When He's Down
3. Gone Away
4. What Happened to You?
5. The Kids Aren't Alright
6. Come Out and Play
7. You're Gonna Go Far, Kid
8. Beheaded
9. Self Esteem
10. All I Want

I just want to say that Why Don't You Get A Job? is so fucking great live, maybe I like it better than an album version. But since I haven't been on Offspring show I like studio versions more than live.

That's a hard one. But I agree, Gotta Get Away sounds very good every time, fits Dexter's voice perfectly. Americana too, maybe. Well, most of the songs sounds awesome live, ut I don't have time to make a list right now.

I can no longer stand to hear Gotta Get Away! Heard it too many times. They should go on a diet and play it every 5 shows or so!

I won't make a top ten, but TKAA, Self Esteem, Hammerhead, Pay The Man, Neocon and Session are really nice to hear live :)

everything they play live seems to come across well. even songs like pretty fly who a lot of people seem to dislike get the whole crowd singing along! ive never really seen a perforamce by the offspring and thought it was bad compared to say blink 182, who, no disrespect, were all over the place when i saw them!
