Q101's Twisted 7
United Center, Chicago
By Randy J. Klodz, Features Editor
The SoCal Original Pranksters that “la la, la la la, la la la la la-ed”us
with “Self Esteem” issues had not “Gone Away” a “Million Miles Away;” they
were merely etching their recent release, “Conspiracy of One.”
The Offspring “Smash”ed through central “Americana” and made a “Bad
Habit” (but a good one) of coercing the sold out United Center crowd into
joylessly jubilantly chorusing every single word to “Why Don’t You Get a Job,”
as they headlined Q101's Twisted 7 in Chicago.
Throw in mucho grande hits from the likes of “Come Out And Play” and
intermix them with fresh fodder such as “Original Prankster;” adhere some
punk/pop prowess and an intermission including a pink thong-laden rotund fellow
that tweaks his nipples; an Offspring show arises.
The Offspring currently venture overseas in support of Conspiracy of
One” but American’s can bask in the goodness of their new home video “Huck
It,” available now on VHS and DVD.
