Being a bassist in a band that loves to play Offspring songs, Id have to say that I love playing songs with bass intros such as Gotta Get Away, Da Hui, and Demons but I like playing all of their songs. The Offspring have really good bass riffs that I tell others who play bass to learn their stuff and ever since I got my bass I have been playing Offspring songs and I liked how each song gave me something new and sometimes challenging stuff to learn. But my absolute fav bass solo has to be the one in Have You Ever. Its not hard at all but it sounds so kool and when u perform it for people they love it.
The Offspring have given me tons of countless hours of fun playin' the bass, GregK is awesome!

Have you ever.
"YES! You are right. You are right-you can't argue, I'm so glad your here right now."

Besides, that's the song that Greg busts out the :cool:"COOL":cool: bass on stage at the concerts.

i love playing the solo in Have You Ever. its easy but so much fun.
My favorite song to play on bass by The Offspring is probably What Happened To You. i love the bassline, it took me a while to get down because you can barely hear it.

But any song by the offspring is fun to play because Greg K. makes bass playing look awesome.

I like Da Hui.
I'm a bit dodgy with Come Out And Play, but like it.
Special Delivery isn't without its charm aswell.

LAPD, Have you ever, Gone Away and Da Hui.

In terms of best Bass Riff all together in punk id have to say Green Day's classic "Longview".

I play bass in a metal band, and my top 5 Offspring bass riffs are:
1. Tehran
2. Demons
3. Meaning of Life
4. Have You Ever
5. Something To Believe In

If I had to pick my favorite bassline ever, it's definitely "Sacrifice Theory" from AFI, but "Synesthesia" and "The Despair Factor" are also way up there. Actually pretty much anything by AFI has an incredible bassline. Hunter is a god.

I can sing and play along to a few offspring ones, Beheaded, Kick em when he's down, Nothing from Something, Bad Habit, Gotta Get Away, Self Esteem, All I want, Want You Bad, Special Deleivery, Get My Head Around You and Da Hui.
But i'd never do it in public, cos then i'd win "unPOPular IDOL".
Saying that i have a voice like a goose farting in the fog would'nt begin to describe it.

I feel your pain, sir, I'm not what you could call a tolerable vocalist either. OK, so when I sing, mothers throw their children off building so they won't grow up scarred. Usually riots also ensue because people think it's the fuckin' apocalypse. Well, maybe not quite that bad, but close.
