Hey guys!

My band just recorded a cover of "Have You Ever", my all time favorite song by the Offspring and one of the best songs ever written in my opinion. I hope you will enjoy...

That does sound really cool. I'd love to hear it with more agressive vocals, to put more strength to the lyrics. You know, I want to hear the 'suffering' of the person in the song.

Have you considered a piano cover of Gone Away?

It's proven to be quite enjoyable.

the lemon
03-28-2012, 12:51 PM
Sure we can take requests. This might turn out to be a fun thing. Offspring piano covers :)

Gone Away feels a bit to obvious though, don't ya think? It's already a perfect ballad and it's been done on the piano by Dex himself. But it would be great fun.

I'm interested in Dirty Magic because they are going to remake it.

I'd like to hear some synth version too. :p

Awesome! New version of Dirty Magic! No need for us to cover it then. Bet it's going to sound amazing. Is it going to be on the new album?

They haven't (to my knowledge) said anything about it being Dirty Magic. They just said they were going to remake an Ignition song.
However, they did an acoustic version of the song not too long ago, and it seems like the logical guess.

There will be an Ignition song on the new album, and it will probably be Dirty Magic.

Thank you for listening to our covers :)

We don't really sell any albums. We're not a big or known band. We just have fun recording and will soon release our third full lenght album :) I would say we sound more like Green Day than Offspring though.

We don't usually use the piano very much, but on this upcoming album we have started experimenting more. This is a teaser of one of our new songs that's going to be on the album. That's more our sound.

Nice Nirvana guitar right from the beginning and then Billy Joe jumps in, but you guys are tight and on a good way I guess. I demand a lot from bands. :d

(In Bloom, Aneurysm or Lithium only faster??? I can't figure it out right now. Would have to check all the albums.)

Funny because I get the same vibes from the guitars. If you figure it out please let me know. Our guitarist is a fan of Nirvana, but I've never heard any apparent references before :)

I thought it was great. The vocalist is well suited to Green Day songs.

Yeah, he's very much inspired by Green Day. It would be impossible to sound like Dexter even if you wanted to. Only Weird Al can pull it off lol.

It's a really nifty promotion of their album.

the lemon

It had nothing to do with us releasing an album. We hade great fun recording Offspring covers on the piano and it kinda developed spontaniously while in the studio. I'm just saying we are out of time at the moment and for what reason. And to be honest, our music is more directed towards the Green Day/Bad Religion type of fans more than Offspring as we sound nothing like the Offspring.

the lemon
07-26-2012, 02:08 PM
I gave up on the Offspring piano covers but have received a lot of requests from Offspring fans to record more of them so I am happy to oblige. Currently in progress is "All I Want" which I received the most requests for. It's going to sound pretty damn nice if I may say so myself. Have to record some backing vocals and that's it. Propbably out tomorrow or sometime during the weekend. Meanwhile, feel free to check us out on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Joint-Aktion-International-Punk-Rockers/195546237132614)

Medal Of Sorrow is so far my favorite track off of Dumbstruck. You have to hurry up and release the rest :)

Scythe Death
07-27-2012, 11:02 AM
The piano was awful. Who would honestly record a four chord song in the piano like that and not even try to embellish it? It just screams "talentless".

It reminds me of this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0Gs4xGw1Eg


Needless to say, I liked the singing a lot because it was the same lyrics that I love and you could listen to them slower and clearer. The ring of the voice was pleasant too.


Overall, it was a good experience. I just wish you did it acapella or you arpeggiated the chords or something.
