A pretty neat little game I came across the other day. The object is to guess what Offspring song it is by entering random words. If your word is a lyric in the song, it will show up in the corresponding blanks, until the lyrics are complete. I find this kind of thing really fun, and I'm considering making a few of my own.

Oh, and the rest of the thread will probably contain spoilers, so read at your own risk. But just in case you have to, I'll create a little space between this and the next post...






















...There. Good Luck!

I figured it out pretty quickly, but I ended up with 3:27 left on the clock. It's a lot harder remembering all of the words when put on the spot like that.

Haha, I enjoyed that. I missed 8 words - I ran outta time :(
SPOILERS INVOLVED: I couldn't for the life of me remember FRAGILE!!! I kept singing it... "still it's hard, hard to see, shattered lives, shattered dreams" and I was like I KNOW it's a different word! Broken? WTF?? I also couldn't remember what Mark does besides smoking pot, couldn't remember who OD'd and died, and missed the "Jay committed suicide" blurb.

Overall, I hope more of these get made! I just hope that the people who make them use correct spelling and stuff, cause I can imagine it being nightmarish ;)

God, I'm such a dork.

Haha. I didn't get a chance to play it for realz, because I had to look at the comments to figure out the game, thus ruining it for me. BUT even after I knew the song, I still had that same problem with the chorus part, llamas. ;) I'm sure I missed more than eight, also. Glad you guys enjoyed it!

SAME. There are several non-Offspring-specific versions of the game on the site as well. That was my day yesterday.

Ha, that's because you had me type the words in as you looked on my screen.

Maaaan, that was pretty tough. Didn't realize how little I knew of that song. I missed 24 words. Well done. :)

That and I was on a cell phone with a tiny screen and my mother was screaming at me from the other room to go to bed. lol

If that's all. I was to lazy to get the CD from the cabinet,take the book out of the box and find the exact words. So I used some internet lyric, and thought: This will do.

It's quite some work to make. You can't just copy/paste, but have to type every word. So don't expect me to make a whole bunch of them.
But if anyone makes another, i'll play.

I couldn't figure out what song that was... when I had 1 minute left, I googled the only phrase I had, "i don't give a shit if I", saw it was No Brakes, and did what I could. Still missed 21 words (though a few of them were due to typos in the lyrics.)

Yeah good thing it was short cause it took me ages to figure out which song it was. The misspelling of "grenades" in one part really threw me off. I always thought it was "with common things around the house" and not "from", so I got that wrong, too.

I'll probably make one soon :)
