    Pretty Fly. It was also the first one I heard by them 11 years ago.

    If it was just based on head-bopability (feel free to use that term) and if it was supposed to be immediately catchy, then I'd probably choose Come Out and Play. that one always win people over.

    But if someone told me to show them, why I think they musically can rival even the best, I'd go with Pay the Man. That song is a masterpiece of epic proporions.

    Well, I find that when I play The Offspring around people they always comment on 'Gone Away' ... so I suppose it would be this one. As for Pretty Fly, most people know this song and associate it with The Offspring and they already either love or hate the song, so I don't believe this is a great introduction song for the band.

    Recently I have gotten a few people on my internship onto the Offspring. I just let them listen to RAFRAG and they were hooked. They had all listened to the Offspring years ago during the Americana era but didn't know that they had new albums out.

    I would pick Gone Away for the meaning of the song or Pretty Fly(For A White Guy) because it is a fun song that most people that were around in the late ninties know pretty well.

    Because I'm already sick and the color scheme must have set me off. Sorry about that.

    Thumbs up It´s a bit complicated

    It would be "nitro", because it is the pure energy and genuine anarchist,but is better to hear all album SmAsH
