Pretty interesting news on Cruisin California writing; the song is also supposed to be number 1 in several charts, including Australia. Any confirm?

I'm not sure what this article is supposed to be about.

If this is true I guess they should get writing credits in the booklet. I don't have the album yet so I can't look it up. Interesting stuff though!

From the credits:
"(bumpin' in my trunk ) by Dani and Lizzy

What it actually says is "Additional vocals on Cruising California (Bumpin' in my trunk) by Dani and Lizzy.

It's written on two lines.

I still hate this song with a passion, but I am less angry with the Offspring now that I know they didn't really write it. ;)

That's a good way to look at it.

Actually, I noticed that writing credits are altogether absent from these liner notes. That's kind of weird, isn't it? I know it usually just says "All songs written by the Offspring," but considering these 2 girls, that Swedish pop song that uses the synth from CC, and the band's comments on Bob Rock's involvement in the creative process, maybe there was more to it than that this time around.

According to BMI, CC was written by Dexter. (http://repertoire.bmi.com/title.asp?blnWriter=True&blnPublisher=True&blnArtist=True&keyID=13901111&ShowNbr=0&ShowSeqNbr=0&querytype=WorkID)

Read the article, Dexter doctored it so basically co-wrote it.

I think the article says that the band sampled (and slightly) changed the beat-whatever. Also, that the two ladies provided that AND vocals. Remember that video earlier in this thread with the same music in it? I think that was it.

I don't really know, though.

Pretty sure that was a couple of Swedish rappers or something.

I think it means the daughters of Paul Hyde co wrote Cruising California (Bumpin' in My Trunk)

Paul Hyde was the singer of Bob Rock's old band Payolas They were also called Rock and Hyde at some point

so the Hyde family is him and his 2 daughters i guess ???
