    Biotoakid and I were having a nice discussion earlier, about who is superior, The Offspring or Weezer?


    It is no secret that I am an Offspring supporter, I am listening to "Beheaded" as I type this. Now, Bioz totally supports Weezer in everything they do.

    Now, I REALLY like The Offspring's earlier stuff (The Offspring through ... Americana, I guess.). I like their later stuff, but not as much. There have been a few winners here and there (Stuff is Messed Up and the like.). I do miss the rad punk days, maybe their new album in coming will be good. Say what you will about the song writing ("I won't park next to da Hui. I won't park next to da Hui. I won't park next to da Hui, because I don't really feel comfortable), but it's stupid and fun.

    I also really like Weezer's earlier stuff. The Blue Album and Pinkerton are amazing. Pink Triangle, Buddy Holly, etc. Good stuff. Their new stuff is poppy garbage. I know The Offspring is poppy, but it has some edge. "It's time I got back..." to quote The Good Life (Pinkerton). The song writing here is better, and Pinkerton is a prime example. Still, crap like "Girl Got Hot" "Can't Stop Partying" really hurt the band in my eyes.

    Both are far out of their prime, but TFW will help end this silly discussion!

    Greg K. or Matt Sharp/Scott Shriner?
    "Noodles" or Brian Bell?
    Dexter Holland or Rivers Cuomo?
    It's up to TFW!

    Rivers Cuomo is a nob, but the rest of Weezer are nice guys.

    I never met the Offspring.

    And Weezer did a video with muppets in.

    So yeah... I vote QOTSA too.

    There should always be a third option. I vote for "my balls", "the crumbs under my desk", or if I have to go with a band I'd say "The Dismemberment Plan".

    I'm not a huge fan of Weezer, but their earlier stuff is great. The Offspring puts out too many silly clunkers for my taste.

    Oh, you and your Offspring.

    But to answer your question, probably Wolfmother.

    You are comparing a band (Weezer) that hit it big right off the bat to a band (The Offspring) that had to dig their way out of the punk underground? Hardly a fair comparison if you ask me.

    I like the earlier Offspring stuff, but Queens of the Stone Age and Them Crooked Vultures for me, with Foo Fighters following a very close second/third.

    I like both but Offspring has ac/dc disease and I like variety in the sound of my music over the same song with different lyrics so definitely weezer. In the end though it's music and it's opinion. Both are capable of making music that doesn't make ears bleed.

    Anything Mike Patton touches, of course, pwns it all.

    While I think it is really silly and pointless to have a poll based on musical tastes which will always differ from person to person, I'm voting Offspring. I kind of like them and I really can't stand Weezer.

    Listen to "When You're in Prison" by The Offspring.

    When I heard it, I thought the song was in the wrong section on my iPod.

    Amazing.

    haha I love joke tracks. One of my faves was the hidden track on STP's purple album.
