    Default Offspring Covers?

    does anybody know of any covers offspring have done? i dont think there is any on the albums apart from the one on the greatest hits but what about in concert?

    They've made a bunch of them, and put them on b-sides and stuff. I bet you'll find them if you USE THE SEARCH BUTTON. =)

    There's "Killboy Powerhead" on Smash. Original is done by The Didjits.
    "Feelings" on Americana, Dexter changed the lyrics from the original song though, so it's more like a parody.

    And they've played "Killboy Powerhead" and "Smash It Up" live. I believe that the "Smash It Up" was originally done by "The Damned".

    And they played quite a lot of covers live which they never recorded.

    I'll do copy+paste from waht I wrote on another thread:

    These are the songs which Offspring has covered (I've got a CD with all the original songs hehehe):

    - 52 Girls (B-52's)
    - 80 times (TSOL)
    - Autonomy (Buzzcocks)
    - Ballroom Blitz (Sweet) * live
    - Basket Case (Green Day) * live
    - Bloodstains (Agent Orange)
    - Feelings (Morris Albert) * parodie
    - Hey Joe (Jimi Hendrix)
    - Hooked on a Feeling (Blue Swede) * it's the "huka-Chaka" in 'Special Delivery'
    - I got a right (Iggy Pop)
    - Iron Man (Black Sabbath) * live
    - I wanna be sedated (Ramones)
    - Killboy Powerhead (Didjits)
    - Low Rider (War) * Is very similar to 'Original Prankster'
    - One hundred Punks (Generation X)
    - Rock of ages (Def Lepard) * The intro of 'Pretty Fly'
    - Sin City (AC/DC)
    - Smash it up (The Damned)
    - Stand by me (Ben E King) * live
    - Territorial pissings (Nirvana) * live
    - Total inmortal (AFI)
    - Undone (Weezer) * live
    - Next to you (The Police)

    IMO, "I wanna be sedated" is the best cover they've made!
