View Full Version : Which song from Splinter should be their best new single?

10-25-2004, 05:30 AM
Rumors says that Spare me the details' gonna be their next single but that's not the best track on the album. My choice would be Lighting Rod! I love the lyrics of that one...just sad that they didn't play it at the show...

10-25-2004, 05:37 AM
Yeah! "Lightning Rod" or "The Noose" would be great.

10-25-2004, 05:52 AM
i'm for the noose... its a pretty cool song

They already released Spare me the details. So that already is a single. I wish they would do Long Way Home or The Noose. THose are 2 of the raddest songs I have ever heard. Is this just singles or are you picking the best song out of the album. Cause you're missing a couple songs.

The Noose, sounds rad, is rad.

Awesome potential for a video.

i didn't care that much for splinter,even it was nice suprise compared to co1.
seems like the noose is leading on poll and i guess its no wonder...i picked it too :) its real good

10-25-2004, 08:08 AM
"Lightning Rod" or "The Noose" :)

10-25-2004, 08:10 AM
Spare me the details as it should be by now

10-25-2004, 08:16 AM
When did they release "SMTD?" I don't think I heard about that. Oh and was that a cover? I think I heard somewhere it was...

10-25-2004, 08:18 AM
They only want to give SMTD radio play as far as I know. And what was a cover??

10-25-2004, 08:27 AM
All great, but I go for Long way home

10-25-2004, 08:35 AM
I voted for Spare me the details, because its my favourite on that album, however I think The Nose and Never Gonna Find me are also very good!

10-25-2004, 09:19 AM
For popularity theyd have to go with Race Against Myself or SPare Me the Details.

10-25-2004, 09:21 AM
'cause I couldn't find Can't Get My Head Around you there I'll say Spare Me The Details. This both are the perfect singles!

10-25-2004, 09:45 AM
The Noose Has My Vote. <3

10-25-2004, 09:46 AM
i voted SPARE ME THE DETAILS because it will sell a lot of albums

10-25-2004, 09:54 AM

Head around you IS a single... so its right thats not on the vote

10-25-2004, 11:00 AM
i would say hit that but its been released.spare me the details or the worst hangover would be good because they are entertaining and great songs but i voted for never gonna find me.....

race against myself or the noose hands down... the rest cant really compete

10-25-2004, 11:48 AM
I think they're done with singles from Splinter. Don't you think we would have had a new one out by now. The last one was (Cant get my) head around you right? It's been a while.

10-25-2004, 11:55 AM
Race Against Myself or The Noose.

10-25-2004, 01:47 PM
SMTD is a great song. Worst Hangover Ever is a pretty cool song. Very ska.

10-25-2004, 03:02 PM
I think it should be Race Against Myself
Has great guitar riff and sounds awesome. Its not to short either. :D

10-25-2004, 05:54 PM
I think they should go for TheNoose


10-25-2004, 06:47 PM
They only want to give SMTD radio play as far as I know. And what was a cover??

I asked if "SMTD" was a cover. So does anyone know? I'm just curious.

I don't think so.

10-25-2004, 07:28 PM
The Noose would be great for the next single as it has The Offspring sound. SMTD (my favorite song on the album) is another song with The Offspring touch, but it most likely won't appeal as much to the mainstream as The Noose. Maybe it can be their next next single.

10-25-2004, 08:36 PM
The better music is The Noose, but Spare Me The Details it's pretty cool too...

10-25-2004, 08:52 PM
The Noose........

10-26-2004, 12:30 PM
Lightning Rod and Spare Me The Details are the best

10-26-2004, 12:32 PM
I say race against myself.

It sounds cool. Who gives a shit if the pop fans dont like it - screw them.

10-26-2004, 01:48 PM
I'm guessing the new single will be the ring of fire cover. Liike i said before, they're done with Splinter.

10-26-2004, 04:57 PM
I voted for Race Against Myself cause its kind of a song about my life and I love playing it on guitar. I think it could make a really great video too. The Noose is ok and Spare Me The Details wouldnt be very good as a single cause the fucking FCC would edit a lot of words in it. So Race Against Myself all the way. And I wish they'd go back to 4 or 5 singles an album like from Smash - Americana.

10-26-2004, 05:04 PM
spare me the details:D:D

10-26-2004, 06:39 PM
i like the noose and can't get my head around you!
they are really cool!

10-26-2004, 06:48 PM

10-26-2004, 07:05 PM
Lightning rod or Long way home... or Race against myself :confused: gaah I dunno. lol

10-26-2004, 09:53 PM
Lightning Rod most def......but I don't think there's gonna be another single. Spare Me The Details didn't even officially come out. The Offspring aren't much of a single band anymore.

10-27-2004, 02:55 AM
The Noose.

10-27-2004, 03:11 AM
I went with Lightening Rod - but i would like to see a video for Spare Me The Details

10-27-2004, 03:51 AM
Yeah I think Race Against myself !!! Itīs my fav song of the album...
Itīs my second fav offspring song off all time...first place is the kids...=)

I had this idea about a possible "race against myself" video, it should look a bit like "gone away" with torn down walls and kinnda dark and murky look...and there should be clips from all past offspring videos with dexter and the band in the middle. So it would be like Dexters singing "..but im running a race against myself...." and you could see all the other Dexters in the background from the old videos....

I think it could be a very cool video =)


10-27-2004, 04:53 AM
The Noose would be the best one

10-27-2004, 04:55 AM
Spare me the ditails!!!!

Its very funny and it will be a great video!!!

10-27-2004, 05:00 AM
"Spare me the Details" is easily the best song on the album. The lyrics are just brilliant. Though when I first heard the Album, "When you're in prison" made me laugh, chilish humour never ceased to amaze me.

Though this album is nothing compared to others!

10-27-2004, 05:02 AM
Lightning rod or the noose! Splinter has so much to choose from.

race against myself, followed by the noose
i thought spare me the details is a bit lame.

10-27-2004, 07:37 AM
I think NEVER GONNA FIND ME or RACE AGAINST MYSELF. But NEVER GONNA FIND ME stirs up feelings in me that I cannot explain.
