By 1984, when what would have become the Offspring formed,
the original Orange County punk scene had fractured. We
used to go this dance club called Circle City, and there'd
be 10 different cliques, " says Kriesel."In our high school
there was a rockabilly scene, as well as a mod scene and a
New Wave scene, as well as a punk scene," Holland adds. But

Review about Offspring songs
My Interpretation... very simple. | Reviewer: Kim
    ------ About the song Come out and play (keep'm separated) performed by Offspring

Ok, so look: basically it's about following others and being a part of what others are doing (like the latest fashion or trend) and joining gangs and violence in general as a teenager in ones school years and focusing more on violence and getting respected by others, making sure people know you're the top dog and not to talk back to you (disrespect you). Joining gangs is a must in the area where these kids go to school and grown up. So they like violence and being tough, making a reputation for themselves any way they can. Like the lyrics say "you're under 18 you won't be doing any time" just shows the listeners it's about kids and certain lifestyles kids in our world have to live in order to feel like they're somebody. "One's wasted and the others a waste" simply saying one's fucked up on something and the others a fuck up, it's all a mess. And "when you hear the sirens it's too late" someone got killed" even more so to say this is about violence between kids and the stupid decisions they make just to bea follower and " in the latest fashion or trend". Very simple. Yeah, good song! Just not as deep as maybe some of you wish it were, but for real, the lyrics say it all, there's nothing to have to analyze really, IMHO.

    ------ About the song You're Gonna Go Far, Kid performed by Offspring

Whether the lyrics are wrong or not, what really bothers me are the comments. Anybody who posts comments or leaves behind criticism without any form of correction is wasting, not only time, but also wasting space.

P.S. If you're going to post a comment check your God Damn spelling & grammar, oh you should also check and make sure you are using the right words. Just because THERE and THEIR sound the same doesn't mean they are the same.

Very meaningful | Reviewer: Ainslea
    ------ About the song Gone Away performed by Offspring

A life long friend of mine recently hung himself. I can't describe how I feel.
This song was chosen for his funeral as everyone entered the room.
It completely set the tone and was so appropriate for our boy.
I looked up the lyrics and found that it pretty much summed up my feelings.
Nothing can describe how I feel about losing Isaac, but this comes close.

wow | Reviewer: Not relevant for this review.
    ------ About the song Kristy, Are You Doing Okay? performed by Offspring

While my name is not Kristy, I was raped by one of my closest guy friends a little more than 8 months ago (I was 16) and I can't shake this song. People connect with a lot of songs but this is one of those crafted for anyone who's been through betrayal like rape or abuse. And the singer is right when he says "it never ends". What a beautiful song.

Never knew... | Reviewer: Paul
    ------ About the song Gone Away performed by Offspring

I never really listened to this song so closely before. I lost my wife, my love, 4 years ago....08/27/09 and this song and the video really gave me a sense of what I have been feeling all these years. I still miss her dearly, and now I have another song that whenever I hear it, I will think of her.

    ------ About the song Dirty Magic performed by Offspring

First, General Smiddy, your comment made me smile, lol. Bless your heart, as the Christians say, this song was released in 1992!

My husband and I are having a nineties evening and listened to Ignition all the way through. Totally forgot how great this whole album is, and this song in particular. So beautifully written.

nice song | Reviewer: tgf ty
    ------ About the song You're Gonna Go Far, Kid performed by Offspring

this song is good and all but why the argueing( sorry for any bad spelling) it doesnt mater as long as you enjoy the song and you can figure out the lyrics but if you disagree with everything put in your own words for example i miss heard: breathing in the chemicals. for, breathing in a cup of coals. and i still hear cup of coals instead of chemicals for the song radioactive by imaginedragons. no matter what i listen to it all but i do find most of the lyrics to songs on my own though so do what i do figure them out on my own. it helps trust me even if it does tick you off also i thought this song said dance your dance after listening more closely it says dance fucker dance so that part is right. but who am i to judge.

    ------ About the song You're Gonna Go Far, Kid performed by Offspring

a girlfriend, no, my fiancé fits the song. Everything she did was calculated, planned, she was such a manipulator.... Dance fucker dance.... she had everyone around her 'dancing' me included.... she kept her parents separated from her friends, me separated from her parents, her friends separated from me... round robin style.... playing all of us. She would drop a comment and 'get back in line' and watch the crowd go wild as she sat back and enjoyed the show... I watched, enjoyed, till I was the one 'dancing'. It was like being on an out of control roller coaster... the best I could hope for was to jump off during a slow curve.

With a thousand lies and a good disguise... she was blonde, young, stunning body... what a disguise for the cunning evil person inside, set on total destruction of anyone that crossed her... I was soon that 'anyone'..... hell to pay


Gone away..... | Reviewer: J.R.
    ------ About the song Gone Away performed by Offspring

My best friend, my wife, my lover..... she has such bad health, I know she will leave this world before I do... It hurts to watch her deteriorate daily... hurts my heart, hurts my soul... I know I will play this song at her funeral. It rips my heart out each time I hear it, but I still listen.

I am so alone and she is not even gone.... yet. I love you Cindy Rae
