How Time Flies – The Offspring

I was not a big music lover when I was young. I was happy with whatever I heard on the radio. Then came The Offspring with their most iconic song – Pretty Fly For a White Guy.

This song was awesome, amazing, and any number of complimentary superlatives. Americana was the first music album I ever bought, and it was all because of that song. That was fourteen years ago. To find their debut single, you have look back twenty three years to find I’ll Be Waiting, a track from their first album The Offspring which was originally produced on a vinyl record. Yeah, they have been making music since before CD’s.

And these guys are still making music, and it’s still awesome. Below is their latest single Cruising Californina, and dang it’s got a catchy tune / lyrics.

Time really does fly, like a white guy (oh yeah, I went there).

How Time Flies – Linkin Park

There are only a handful of bands where I know the lyrics to every song on every album. Linkin Park is one of them, and coming soon is their latest studio album with the new single Burn It Down. I love this song, and the video clip (below) is awesome:

For me, it is amazing to see just how much these guys have changed over the years, and how much these changes have paralleled my own life. From angsty teenagers with angsty music to somewhat mature adults with somewhat mature tastes. Below is the video for the first single off their debut album – One Step Closer (2000). So much has changed in twelve years, so its great to see where it all started.

What do you think of the differences? What is your favourite Linkin Park song? Let me know or post some YouTube links in the comments below.
