    And you know what else? If you want to talk shit about the Offspring start your own "I hate the offspring message board." No one can stop you. But I don't think the band would appreciate all these hateful words on their own website.

Hit That and Pretty Fly for a White Guy are also on the dumbass loser list. And they are proud of this crap? And now we have CC (BIMT). I mean does ANYONE really listen to these songs other than the occaisional radio airplay? Do you go home at night and really want to listen to this stuff? I have never wanted to hear those songs again after hearing them on the radio...ever.
    They're fun songs and I do enjoy listening to them. Except WDYGAJ, pretty sick of that one, but only because I've listened to it too much!

    So do I (maybe it's a little harsh but still ...), and yup, it's the LA Times. So much for a single song can't have an "impact" on a band's "image" in a way Well, maybe there's humourless/immature people working there too?!
    Interesting and kind of sad at the same time to see that CC has stirred way more attention than TFIN and DGB ...

    Did. Not. Read. Lolz.

    Kiss my ass L.A.Times.

    Also, I like the song.
    Listen to Britney Spears:

    -Hit Me Baby One More Time!!!

    Meh, show me a positive review about CC, that'd be big news.

    These are just articles though, I think the really sad part is the hate-filled user comments, like on this site:

    http://www.avclub.com/articles/sweet...ng-vide,80973/

    And sadly, contrary to popular belief around here, the haters do "get" the song, do enjoy feelgood hits and do like the ban... awright, I'll stop before I overstay my welcome We've argued about this enough in CC's own thread.

    This article is is right I think. CC will probably be a reason for a lot of people to completely write off The Offspring and not buy the album. The record company wanted to make it a single, which only show that they don't give a shit at all. They probably heard autotune and their eyes went all dollar signs. As a pretty fucked up kind of Intermission on the record I could have accepted this song but, well...
    This song has been discussed to death. Nothing to add here without attracting all the fanboys here so go on and shred the article.

    I finally listened to the song. I thought it was freaking hilarious.

    Sure, it isn't punk rock. Sure, it sounds like something Ark Music Factory might write. Sure, it may be generic. But I laughed my ass off.
    Your back's to the wall, that's protocol;
    It's sequestering your spirit, misleading us all.

    "Honestly, we didn't think we'd encounter the words "the Offspring" printed anywhere outside of a KROQ-FM festival." OUCH!
