You heard me. Stop saying that some songs are pop songs and some are punk and all that ridiculous nonsense. ALL OF THEIR SONGS ARE POP-PUNK SONGS. THEY ARE A POP-PUNK BAND!

And you know what? They're still the best ever in my opinion. Pop doesn't automatically mean bad, and this band is proof. Sure, most pop music is ridiculous bullshit, but The Offspring is an amazing group. Just don't delude yourself into thinking that they're something they're not.

I have to disagree with you there. The Offspring are popular, but they still play pretty hardcore punk. Look at All I want, So Alone, and Can't get my Head around you.

You mean nowadays, not past as in Ignition and Self Titled, even Smash, right? I agree they are now.

I disagree, I think they are more punk than pop. Even thought the Offspring is pretty hard to 'decide' what it is, cause they have such different sounds. They have been called punk, skate-punk, punk-rock, rock, ska, pop...
Why do we have to decide what their music is called? I don't give a damn, I just listen to the music and I know it's the best, whatever it's called. *High five*

They are whatever the fuck you want them to be. Some may think they're a pop band, some may think they're a rock band. Choose whatever floats your boat the best and makes you feel most comfortable. I'm not saying there's anything wrong you saying they're a pop band, that's your opinion...

I agree with what you're saying except that they're older stuff isn't 'pop-punk'.

Look at All I want, So Alone, and Can't get my Head around you.

So Alone is the only song there that isn't pop-punk.

No, I mean always. You don't have to be popular to be a pop-punk band. It's a kind of music.

No Hero, Kick Him When He's Down, Crossroads, What Happened To You, Dirty Magic, all of those are kick-ass pop-punk songs from their first three albums.

I agree, but my point is that no matter WHAT they are, they are the best band ever. Pop, punk, rock, whatever, The Offspring rule, so people should stop acting like it even makes a difference what category they fall into.

Wtf? Are you saying that a slow song or a song with catchy rhythm immediately becomes pop-punk? Dude, you're totally wrong...(Crossroads and Kick him when he's down = pop punk. You made me laugh)...

The Offspring have said themselves that they are a punkrock band. And i think that they know that a little better than you do

^Pop-Punk is STILL PUNKROCK.

You are totally confused. POP PUNK means both pop and punk. Like Hit that. Think about it.

I know that-that's common sense. But pop and punk is still punk.

Either way, the main point is that it doesn't matter, because they're the best.

It's pretty fun....none of their fans (except you) accept them for being a pop group. After all, that's what they've become. But it depends on which songs you listen to aswell. As you said, they rule anyway. :cool:
