    I like them both. Both songs are successful experiments for me. I voted for "Cruising California" though, just because the most of the fans "shoot" it
    Enslave my mind...

    At first, I was turned off to OC Guns because the spanish he speaks sounded weird to me. Although after time, the song really grew on me. It does a good job of invoking the images of what the streets of Orange County might look like at night with gang violence, and the instrumentals are absolutely wonderful. It reminds me a lot of Sublime, actually.

    CC, though, is a travesty that I skip every time I play the album.


    This was no contest for me.

    OC Guns

    I absolutely love it instrumentally. My only complaints have to deal with the chorus (particularly the "shoot him in the back" line.

    I guess you'd have to be assholes to understand. lol
    Or, you know, a musician who doesn't really pay attention to lyrics, but rather focuses on musicality instead. OC Guns is a well-written piece of music, with a lot of creativity and clever, unique genre-mixing. Pretty Fly is musically pretty drab in comparison. Couldn't care less what the lyrics are about.

    My vote was for OC Guns, CC I have said enough they could of just filled it in with some poorly produced punk rock song and it would of been way better.

    Btw OC Guns is awesome !! that's a offspring joke song, not CC...

    Completely agree, its definitely one of the greats!its the only one i listened to twice in a row the first time i heard the whole album! except i still think CC is just terrible

    I agree, but it sounds like we're in opposite ends of the spectrum.

    A musician that doesn't really pay attention to lyrics and focus on musicality listening to punk? LOL

    (I'm half-kidding.)

    OC Guns is not musically impressive or well written, although the beat is pleasant. It's based off a very simple motif, and it actually does sound kind of sub par from the genre. Where I grew up such was a pretty standard, particularly in latin alternative hip hop. It's like none of you have ever listened to hip hop beats before or probably say you don't like it, but suddenly as soon as your favorite band does one in the genre, it's a masterpiece.

    OC Guns saturday night live parody of this:

    In the other hand, songs like Pretty Fly are not standard or sub par in any genre. It is musically diverse and it is lead by well complemented by chord very driving chord progressions and experimental percussion far more creative than the 4-chord stuff you're so impressed by.

    This place is funny. People regard "Ignition" as the best Offspring album and act like they're barely building on the basics of music and lyricism.


    I also bet I'm a way better guitarist than you. Too many people like to stretch things and call themselves "musicians".

    Lol, yep. I made my one comment to him, and that's enough. I suggest we all just look the other way.
