Hi guys, I wanna talk about a Offspring's lost song: Pass Me By. It was dismissed of Splinter because it was quite heavy, but i have never listened to it. Does exist any recording or information?

it was a demo, but no official song was ever recorded. Dexter said that at Alex bar if I'm right

I'm not even sure why everyone is so hot and heavy over a 30 second clip with no lyrics.
I've always kinda wanted to hear 'Protocol' in full.

So sick of these threads... they started writing a song, and didn't like where it went... or didn't feel inspired by it... or maybe they didn't even come up with a direction to take it after that intro. All we know for sure is that all we've heard about that song was from like 8 years ago, and since we haven't heard it yet, it's likely a waste of time to still talk about it constantly.

Or Pass Me By was simply renamed to Cruising California and they dropped the intro, because they thought it wouldn't fit the song...

Thank god that they don't mention songs that didn't make it more often! It is not THE lost offspring song. It is the only one people obsess about because they once heard a clip of it. It didn't work. They didn't finish it. And people still seriously ask about Protocol? It was rewritten into an Offspring song we all know and love. Watch, in 5 years people will constantly be asking about that lost Offspring song "You Will Find A Way". Just a heads up on that one: Days Go By.:rolleyes:

Please people stop talking about Pass me by. There are probably hundreds of demos that have never got released that we don't even know about, or songs like "Protocol" that have been written that were never made or re written.

I still want to hear Protocol, because of the alternative lyrics.

Haha that's awesome. I didn't know about Protocol before. I knew they'd written a song and pitched it to BR and got rejected by Brett... I knew there was bad stuff between Brett and the Offspring... but that was it :) I didn't know they turned it into All I Want, or that it had a name before. It'd be fun to hear it, but it seems like Dexter doesn't even really remember how it went.

Wow, really? I'm a newer fan and I discovered that video quite a while ago. Better late than never I suppose. Yeah, I'm doubtful Dexter remembers all the lyrics to a song they never recorded (they recorded All I Want, not Protocol). There's a slim chance we may hear it one day though.
