Yep!!!! Ron rocks!!!! As a drummer I think "Can't Repeat"s is pretty weak!

Ron was much more of a badass at shows, too. Atom's an attention whore. He should be shot down! Everyone knows that the real show is Dexter and Noodles. And Greg K, I guess.

He goes shirtless too, and he's just such a pimp. Atom's faggoty, and he isn't even part of the band, just a fill-in.

aww cmon guys, atom gave a whole new energy to the offsprings music, he really did, both live and on recording (cant repeat). he looks so cool when hes drumming and makes the show look livlier too.

atom rocks! i recon his drumming is much better than rons and hes wicked with the fans. josh freese is also bit of a legend for his drums on splinter!

Ron was a member of The Offspring for sooo long witch definitely makes people like him more....but I still think he's the best!!!!!

I was really used to ron but hes gone,Atom really put energy behind his drum,hes more in with the crowd.I think they made a good choice with Atom,I was affraid of what kind of guy they were gonna choose but im happy with Atom.its better than split off because Ron left.Ron as 6 album with offspring,its true, but give a chance to Atom.dont tell me to shut the fuck up or what ever,this is my opinion.the drums are fine in Cant repeat,thats not the kind of song that you put amazing drums in anyway.thats like the kids arent alright....and its not because Atom is not good looking for you that hes a bad drummer.they could hire justin Timberlake for a good looking guy but they wanted a good drummer so here is Atom.

he's not a fill-in dumbass! Josh freese was the fill-in on splinter! Atom is now an official member.

Atom is great. I listen to live offspring recordings and he sounds way better than ron. Oh yeah, it's cool that Atom comes and posts here too (well actually I haven't seem him around for a while, he'll probably come back soon).

Cammie fucking hates this kind of question........

I LIKE BOTH.

I learned to listen to Offspring when Ron was part of the band. Unfortunatelly he left us but man ATOM is as much as great as Ron. He was able to become part of a band and deal with all the old fans who were used to Ron and have done it well.

Ron - He was in the band originally, he's an awesome drummer, full of energy, works hard, all that good stuff that good drummers do.
Atom - He's the new guy, he's an awesome drummer, full of energy, works hard, all that good stuff good drummers do.
I was also worried about who they would pick for the new drummer. Josh Freese was awesome on Splinter, and Atom seems to be just as good as any of em.
Drummers go shirtless because drumming requires a lot of energy and motion. That causes you to sweat. Removal of shirts makes the sweating feel less gross, and cools you off better.
It doesn't mean that he's trying to get attention. It doesn't mean he's a pimp or a fag.
You people are hilarious. Keep making redundant statements.

Dont get me wrong i love ron and everything he did on his 6 albums or so in the band, but atom is fucking cool and a brilliant replacment. when i saw the offspring last year atom was just so energetic, he really made the gig even better...........i thought the band would never been the same after ron left but atom has fit right in..........atoms fucking cool and hes a great drummer...........listen to some of his non offspring stuff (not that hes got that much offspring stuff) its fuckin good....on the hit that european single theres a kinda funky new kids arent alright version from a bbc session with zane lowe on his radio show.its like 5minutes long, its class and atom drums on it...and the drumming is brilliant.....long live atom!!!!!!!

Awww, come on guys, they are both very good drummers, to be able to join The Offspring! I have to say, i definatly like Ron alot more when he's behind the drums, but its not a lie when people say that Atom gives the show's a bit more Energy, he definatly gives the camera's something to look at, i think he's a cool guy, but i'd also love to see Ron make a return

I think Atom is cool, but he can never be a perfect replace for Ron, but he wears an Enjoi shirt in the Cant get my head around you video, and thats cool :D

nothin against atom, hes cool n all, but ronny all the way, that dudes as badass as they come. noodles is great, dex is awsome, and greg, tho he does lack personality, is a cool cat

this poll hes been done before i guess. and b ratty, i don't think atom is ugly. he's really cute. more than ron. and a better drummer. but i prefer the old staff of course. there's nothing better than the original.

darko
05-17-2005, 12:26 PM
u know, really this poll should be down maybe...a album or two down the line....atom hasnt really had a chance to prove himself and show what he's got....

I dont know whoose better but I'll give Atom a chance, however I'm voting Ron because he was there longer.

sebastienfan
05-17-2005, 09:09 PM
I think MOST of people like more ron only because he was there longer.if they had played like 8 years each in offspring,that would be a hard question.Atom only recorded one song,give him a chance.
