    I think, like, a 30-40 second solo would be sufficient, and I am not sure if Noodles would pull those Dragonforce ones

    I'd kill someone if the Offspring tried to play like Dragonfags. Don't get me wrong, I love me some metal... but those guys make me angry.

    Anyway, it'd be awesome if the band still played solos like on S/T! But I think Noodles isn't as good as he used to be, or maybe he just doesn't care as much anymore (he messes up live more than he used to). Either way, I'd love to hear some solos if they could pull them off. The intro to "I'll Be Waiting" is such a nice solo... I'd love to hear more of that!

    I am a big fan of metal music, and solos are obviously a vital part of that genre. Offspring are punk, so solos are not as essential for them. However, I do like the solos that are in their songs. The solo in "Feelings" is awesome, and Noodles plays some great leads in "I Choose" and "D.U.I.". Dexter can also solo, as he plays the one in "What Happened To You?". Not sure if he's played any others though! I like the fact The Offspring have solos in some of their songs, it makes them stand out from most other bands of their type. Longer solos? I don't really think that's necessary. More solos though....Id be all for that!

    long solos get annoying.
    punk bands never really have long solos,
    so why would they change that?

    Lightbulb longer solos..

    Of course not!!
    If they use solos, it wouldn´t be their normal kind of music...
    it´s punk, not metal or another kind..
    Dragonforce is good, but The Offspring is perfect like it is normally playing..

    i dont think its in their style to play long solos, they could probably work one in thoughif they really wanted but their music is more about songs then anything kinda over technical!
    whenever i learn something new it pushes some old knowledge out of my brain, remember that home wine making course when i forgot how to drive?!
