I posted this elsewhere, but I decided to make a thread out of it because I think it might be interesting...

I've always noticed that each album contains at least a few songs that I consider to be classic Offspring songs (there's probably no more than 20 of these). RAFRAG adds a bunch of new songs to the list, although there's also a few songs on all their albums that are right on the borderline of being what I'd consider a classic.

RAFRAF has four "new classics" in my opinion:
-Trust in You
-YGGFK
-Rise and Fall
-A Lot Like Me

What's your list of new classics? (Note: this doesn't just mean "what are you favorites from RAFRAG")

For me they'd have to be
-Hammerhead
-Half-Truism
-YGGF,K
-Trust In You

YGGFK and A Lot Like Me. Also I think Let's Hear it for Rock Bottom, best song on the album.

I would't say it's the best, but it's definitely one of my favorite and underrated on the boards. The bridge really makes the song. Without it, the tune would be very repetitive. It's a good example of strong songwriting to enhance an otherwise so-so melody.

Ever sense i first heard hammerhead back on kroq that night it first premiered it's been like my favorite offspring song. It's by far the best on the rafrag, it's definitly not my favorite overall offspring song, but it will be till i get horribly sick of it. So i'd say thats a new classic.

You're Gonna Go Far Kid, Trust In You, and Half Truism... I don't really agree with Rise and Fall though.. it doesn't really remind me of classic Smash era Offspring. The song seems to remind me of Greenday rather than Offspring (other than Dex's voice)

This song fucking gets me going. I think it rules and you owe it to yourself to blast this song while driving one day. You can really tell the lyrics mean something to Dexter. Plus, the guitar solo and vocal harmonies rock.

Yes, I think A Lot Like Me has a perspective to make a permanent position in Linkin Park's setlists.

I'm gonna be honest, the first thing I thought of when I heard A Lot Like Me was Linkin Park. But it's definitely not something I got hung up on...I really think there's a lot to this song and it's just really good overall. It really grabs me as being so sincere and meaningful. I'm sorry, but if you can't sense the emotion that was put into this song...then I don't know what to tell ya.

Yeah YGGFK FOR sure, I think Half-Truism will be not be forgotten anytime soon either

Half-Truism is right on the borderline for me. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I don't consider it to be one of their best though.

Well Trust In You is a classic I would say since it's very similar to an old classic - Smash.

He was a significantly flat on a bunch of notes. Knowing the song, it was easy for me to imagine how each note was supposed to sound, but for someone who doesn't know the song, it might have sounded pretty bad at some points.
