The Contenders: Page 2

21 Defy You Defy You

I love the offspring and loads of their songs, but man you got this all wrong... This has to be their best song... Top of the list man! Great vocals, lyrics choru etc... Great song overall

Not my favorite, but definitely needs to be higher.

This would be great action movie music.

One of their best. should be top 5!

22 Pay the Man Pay the Man

Definitely The Offspring's MOST unique song, coming from a lifelong fan of the band. Extremely underrated, though it sometimes takes true musical talent to appreciate true musical talent. It may not appeal as much to the "You're Gonna Go Far Kid" crowd as it does to those who have more of an ear for talent and originality. That being said, the instrumentals simply blow me away every time.

This song is quite different from their other ones. However, I am hardly alone when I say that "Pay the Man" is the Offspring's masterpiece. The instrumentals are masterfully crafted, evolving into a punk-oriented guitar riff at 5:00/6:00. Simply amazing.

How this song evolves into what it is around 5:00/6:00, it's just amazing. I feel so amazing, I want to jump, bang my head, the guys did a fantastic job with this song.

This is their absolute pinnacle! Most intriguing song they ever made! Should be in the top 5 easy!

23 I Choose I Choose

This song is always overlooked. It is a hidden gem on Ixnay on the Hombre and is one of their best pop-style songs!

Dexters voice and the guitarpart work perfect together. Favourite Song of Ixnay on the ombre!

24 Days Go By Days Go By

It's from their new album, also titled Days Go By! Really deserves more votes because it is a damn good song! Please vote! - hongtam

Best song by them by far, brilliant riffs and lyrics are superb, great sound and really catchy! This should be number 1 for sure!

Just discovered this song, brilliant, should be top 3 for sure

25 The Meaning of Life The Meaning of Life

Extremely underrated! Kicks off Ixnay and the Hombre in style and sets the tone for the whole album. I listened to this song in the store and proceeded to save up for weeks just to get the album based on this song. Great song, brilliant album!

I think that's a little bit underrated, bit I quite like it! Teaching you to not stay on a predesigned path, and act for yourself learning to live your own way

26 Spare Me the Details Spare Me the Details

I'm not the one who acted like a ho, why must I be the one who has to know, I'm not the one who messed up big time so spare me the details if you don't mind!

Everyone is clearly deaf, for ranking this song this low...

Runnin' through my head, over and over.

So catchy and awesome! Why is this 27...

27 Cool to Hate Cool to Hate

Never before have I seen such beautiful satire.

The people who take this song seriously are fools. It's mocking the people who hate everything, and that's part of why it's so awesome!

Man this must be in top 5, I mean come on! The Kids Aren't Alright is not bad but It's definitely shall not be number 1! Doesn't anyone think this way?

28 Genocide Genocide

Only #40? This way the first Offspring song I ever heard. It got me into the Offspring. Awesome and clean (for people that actually care about that).

What... Why... Top 10 at least in my top 5. From when the offspring were true to themselves.

High octane and simple. Crank this baby up!

Should at least be in the top ten.

Love this song it shows the offspring can do more than just fast and hard punk songs needs to be higher maybe not there best song but not far off

30 Staring at the Sun Staring at the Sun

This song is brilliant and absolutely relentless, it is impossible to listen to this and not want to listen repeatedly and all it will take is a second listen and you will find yourself singing along word for word.


One of the best if not the greatest offspring song ever written! Come on guys.. Should be easily riding high in the top 5 AT LEAST!

Best song to board to to, gets me up and about and ready for anything

The first offspring I listen to

31 Demons (A Mexican Fiesta) Demons (A Mexican Fiesta)

Very underrated. Just like this whole album. Of course it is more rough and the quality is not the best, but the creative melodies, genius rhythm-changes & -variations and lyrics are better than on any album. I also really like the dark tone this album sets.

32 Forever and a Day Forever and a Day
33 Can't Repeat Can't Repeat

Very underrated offspring song, I listen to this song pretty much every single day. Top 10 offspring song in my opinion.

Its very underrated.. I just don't know why, we must vote this up so help in the process

Seriously!?!?! This should be in the top 10 at least!

Wow, can not believe this song isn't in the top ten! Definitely my favorite song by them!

34 Million Miles Away Million Miles Away

Whoa whoa whoa now! 34th place is certainly not high enough. This song is really great, and better than some in the top 10 even. In my opinion, it should be at 3 or 4. This is one of the first songs I heard by The Offspring. It might have even been the song that got me hooked on this band. The people who didn't vote for this must have not heard it before, cause it's very catchy and energetic.

What the hell is this doing at 34? My childhood song, and simply a brilliant one! Let's get it up!

Underrated. Easily their best song. Should be number one by a long shot.

Definitely ton 10 worthy!

Reminiscent of Chainsaw by the Ramones. Lyrically disturbing and hilarious at the same time

37 Change the World Change the World

This song is so special, it should be in top ten

38 Tehran Tehran

Great anti war song, uses a killer guitar riff!

39 Kick Him When He's Down Kick Him When He's Down

Their best song, when they were a punk rock band.

Classic! Too many youngsters swinging this pole

40 A Lot Like Me A Lot Like Me

Awesome and very emotional song by The Offspring. Deserves to be up higher at least at the top 20. This is probably one of they're most underrated songs.
