There is indeed an old thread with the same think but it was pre-R&F, R&G, so I believe that a new thread is in order.

Personally my favorite closing song is Pay The Man. I love every part to it, the way every part sounds, I love the lyrics and I love how powerful the song its self is.

"Smash" (the song)

Free?

All of them are great closing songs.
But I find Forever And A Day, Change The World, Pay the Man awesome, closely followed by Rise And Fall.
If I'd have to choose one, it would be Change The World or Pay the Man. Sorry can't go further :P.

Pay The Man. Absolutely one of my favourite songs, I really like this...progressive rock. Not typical Offspring, but when they first do it, they do it for real. I wish they would do more of this. ...like one or two song(s) on the next album, oh sweet. ^^

Change The World is also a really good outro song. Forever And A Day, Conspiracy Of One and all of those other end songs is like more "typical" Offspring songs, and I may like it a bit different when it's the last song. But don't misunderstand me, it's not that I don't like any of those "typical" songs as end song. They're really great too!

Smash. The song itself is great and the ending is really similar to what genocide sounds like, providing a good closing melody which fits with the album itself. librarisexual

Pay the Man! Arguably, that is the best song ever written.

I don't always feel like listening to the whole of Pay The Man. Smash is great because it ends the album with a bad ass song and I'm always up for listening to it. So I'll go with that.
Really hard choice though, they all fucking rock.

Forever And A Day, no others need apply.

Where the fuck is kill the president ( I KNOW THE SHIT AROUND IT, I JUST WANNA MAKE A POINT)

Forever and a day is awesome, followed by:
Smash
Conspiracy of One
Change the world
Rise and fall
Pay the man
I'll be waiting/kill the president
Da Hui/when you're in prison

Da Hui/when you're are just lame, and they don't qualify as a proper ending

Da Hui is fuckin' awesome! Prison is fuckin' lame, that's fo' sho'.

This is my ranking:

Pay the Man
Change the World (I'm outraged at how this has no votes)
Forever and a Day
Smash
Conspiracy of One
Kill the President/I'll Be Waiting
Rise and Fall
When You're in Prison

Forever and a Day. Can't explain why, but it seems to fit perfectly as the closing song on Ignition.

I have the self titled with kill the president, so to me thats the ending track to that album. Why would anyone buy the self titled with 10 trakcs?

One would assume lack of availability of the original version would be an issue.

Ditto on that, my Canadian brother.

Yea the reason I didnít include Kill The President was simply because I donít believe many people know of it or have heard it. With the large flux of new members, Iím pretty sure the bandwagon kids just picked up the re-issue of the self-titled album and have not download the song.

randman21

Funny, as long as I've been an Offspring fan (which has only really been about 4 years) I've known KTP. It was the first song of theirs I downloaded, not knowing how old it was or about it being removed from the album. I guess I just got lucky.

Pay The Man is a great song, but kinda overrated. Change The World, however, is underrated. That's why I voted for it.

Kill the President should have been on the poll. I bought the S/T (cassette) in 1997 and it has it. I bought another S/T (CD) in 2002 and it has it too. I'm sure most of us know the song. Anyway, I voted Forever and a Day, though it was a hard choice considering I love Pay the Man, Smash and CO1 too.

I bet this poll would have more votes if it wasn't so damn hard to decide.

The Offspring rocks + Last songs are always good = Trying to choose between songs that are all fucking amazing

Rise and fall ♥

Psh...more like Rise and FAIL.

01-23-2009, 11:35 AM
I dont know which of them... But definitely not Rise and Fall :( Yeah, I voted for Change the world. I also have S/T cassete with Kill the president, it's shame that you dont put it on the list :D

I voted Pay The Man because it is definately an Offspring classic. I do agree with H25 about Kill The President, if this selection was on the list, my choice would have been much more difficult to make.

I got mine for like 2 bucks on amazon.

Not everyone buys stuff online, and i'd also assume that lots of people simply aren't that motivated to get one extra song, especially in the age of peer to peer networks.

01-23-2009, 02:25 PM
from the list it would be smash, closely followed by forever and a day!

Change the world or Smash...I voted for the first one...

CO1, just because i dont believe it deserves to be at 0 with Da Hui :P

Smash, although all those songs are great:D

Tomasisko
01-23-2009, 03:24 PM
yeah but Forever and a Day is simply the best :)

Smash of course and forever and a day. Maybe Change the world continuation of the end of smash;)

SweetTatyana
02-13-2009, 06:47 AM
Honestly, I'd love to see them close with something big like Kids Arent Alright or You're Gonna Go Far Kid, I love when bands close with songs where everyone just goes nuts to really end off the show.

Forever and a Day, but Smash, Change The World and Pay the man are great too:)

Smash. The song itself is great and the ending is really similar to what genocide sounds like, providing a good closing melody which fits with the album itself. librarisexual

the ending's melody sounds like genocide indeed but i think it's even more similar(in fact it's the same) to change the world isn't it?:)

I like Smash so i voted for it. Pay the Man is good too. I don't like Rise and Fall. It feels like a disappointing to me.

Rise And Fall...

I love all songs... but, Rise And Fall wins for me

"Pay The Man" all the way. It's such an amazing song in my opinion. Especially if you listen to it when you're high..............wait.....what?

renato piquette
02-15-2009, 08:25 PM
shouldn`t Huck It be there instead of CO1?

Gayman
02-15-2009, 08:32 PM
Well, "Huck It" isn't on the US version of the album I think.....so the "real" closing song is CO1.

renato piquette
02-15-2009, 08:44 PM
oh,i didn`t know that....mine`s got it....i always thought it was the US release

Really close tie between Smash and Pay The Man. But I'd need to choose Smash.

Same. That song closes the album really well, and goes well with the rest of the album. You get that Genocide feeling from the end of Smash. Not to mention that the song Smash itself is fucking epic. Ie. Trust in You borrows from Smash's awesomeness and becomes a great song too!
