I think the Offspring predicted the future with Baghdad/Tehran because the Gulf War (1990/91 Correct if wrong) and esp Operation Iraqi Freedom (2004) were both after these songs were writen (1986/7 ??) and what could be a more appropriate song for both wars, esp Baghdad for OIF.

Your Thoughts please

oh and was there an event that these 2 songs refer to.

and yes i know they are versions of the same song before people complain.

It's a scary thought but it may be true.

All of these songs are about common issues, things that could happen at any time. I don't mean to burst anyone's bubble, but they're definitely not predicting a thing.

The dont have superpowers because they were asked what superpower they would chose if they could have one. And Noodles said he'd settle for Good Vision :D

But maybe they can predict the future. Crazy old ladys do it with cards, Glass Balls, palms and all within the confines of a dingy Caravan. So why cant THe offspring do it with music :D
