That was an EP version from AFI, when bands make it to labels they get vocal coaches , im sure he does it better these days, i find it odd that the song by offspring is on Me Myself Irene soundtrack, kinda random in my view

they are both good, but the offspring one is better, probably just because at that time they had more musical skills than afi and knew where the song could be better, somehow they managed to make the song more powerful than afi's version. but both are good.

Before "Sing the Sorrow", AFI was the greatest of punk bands. I don't think any of you realize just exactly you're saying. I understand that, yes, The Offspring is good. However, they have also, in my own opinion, declined in quality after "Conspiracy of One" and are still doing so. A song is never performed better than the original artist.

i once again go back to my money factor stance......AFI did that as a EP, a demo, they had jack shit funding for it....thats the only reason it doesnt sound as accomplished as a song like leaving song pt 2...for e.g :D

and isloated fury....i wouldnt call it decline in quality, i would call it not exceeding our expectations or exploring our loves about the band, i think they are aiming at new fans myself

Great song from AFI and love the cover by The Offspring!!!
It doesn't matter which song they cover they always do it better :D
they are the best band in the world, but you already know that!

I don't think they have "declined in quality", but I admit, that i found a huge change in the sound between Ixnay and Americana... I like their "old sound" the better.

and.. I don't say that the Offpring plays Total Immortal better, i just say I personaly like Dexter's voice even more. :)

we arent talking about albums, just that song and cover...usually songsa are best as originals, but sometimes they can be better by someone else, its rare, but it happens...such as all along the watchtower by jimi hendrix is better than the original version by bob dylan...you cant say a song is never performed better than the original artist, on occasion it does happen.

All of you guys are complaining about the vocals in the AFI version.

To the guy that blames it on the fact that it was an EP. You're wrong.

Few of you whiners seem to have heard any of AFI's early stuff. Totalimmorta was on an EP, yes. A trasitional EP with a new guitar player. They were beginning to experiment with the gothy music they're playing now while maintaining their hardcore roots.

The vocals on the AFI version sound just as good, if not better, as anything off of Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes.

I don't really have an opionon. I like both of them. AFI's is more hardcore, The Offspring's is a little more metal. I heard the Offspring version first though. I was still listening to AFI's older stuff at the time.

Good song, good cover.

i like AFI's version better...theres so much more energy. plus, that song was done before the band sold out and turned all screamo so that makes it even better. The Offspring was starting to die when they did that cover.

Offspring īs version is much better

I prefer the AFI original. The song fits Davey Havok's voice a lot better than it does Dexter's. In fact, in the Offspring version, it sounds like Dexter is straining too hard to hit and sustain some of the notes.

i havent actually heard the offspring's version of this song, but the AFI version is good, but knowing the offspring, their version shits all over AFI's :p

Isolated, I don't see how you can say they've declined in quality since Conspiracy of One, and continue to do so. There has been ONE album since then, and they can't continue to do so if they don't have any new stuff to make worse (and if they do you haven't heard it). People, I'm sure, thought the exact same thing when ixnay on the Hombre was released (some people STILL dislike it), and they've done just fine since then.

Your right that the offspring have recovered from previous lows such as Ixnay, and have the oppurtunity to become big again. But the question is will they ever release another smash or americana? I dont think so.

Come out and smash'em up!

I think offsprings version is a bit better, but the song is great

think about this Offspring covering metallicas battery :D

record sales dont mean an album is good or bad...ixnay is better than americana, as is ignition and smash, but they all sold less than americana, and im sure american idiot will sell more than dookie, but i believe one can argue that both dookie and nimrod or better than american idiot.

Of course album sales dont mean quality, but in MY OPINION in the rare case of splinter's they do. In say Ixnay on the Hombre or Ignitions case, the sales figures definately don't represent the album at hand.

Bullshit. Smash is best.
