Yeah... I haven't had an Offspring song on my computer for over five years, I think. And it's like you said. It's not that I don't like them or think they suck; I've just not listened to them in ages and feel no urge to listen to them. I can definitely say that they molded my musical taste into what it is now (thankfully). Otherwise, I'd still be listening to... metal. *shudders* How the Offspring is related to my taste in music (DIGI)evolving into loving math-rock with my mouth hole, I don't know.
Now let's say an Offspring song comes on the radio (lol who uses the radio?). I wouldn't change the station. I'd leave it on, smile, and probably sing along. But I wouldn't go home and listen to them for the rest of the night.
I would spread the cloths under your feet: but I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
