THE OFFSPRING’S “SELF-ESTEEM”

from: Christine P Gray





The Offspring’s “Self Esteem” band is composed of Bryan “Dexter” Holland on vocals, Greg Kriesel or on bass guitar, Kevin Wasserman , also called “Noodle” on lead guitar and Atom Willard on drums. Prior to joining the band, Kevin Wasserman was the school janitor recruited by Dexter Holland and Greg Krieser reportedly because he was old enough to procure alcohol for them.



The album “Smash” is considered to be The Offspring’s break-out record. It was what really catapulted the band to fame. The said album was released in 1994 by Epitaph Records and has sold eight million copies which also made it the highest-selling record ever produced by an independent label.



Incidentally Epitaph Records is also owned by Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz. He initially had his misgivings about the band but when he heard their single “Baghdad” produced in 1991, he changed his mind and signed them up. The following year, they released the album “Ignition” and its success has put them on tour together with No Doubt, Pennywise and Voodoo Glow Skulls.



By 1993, they returned to the studio to record “Smash” and released it the following year with little knowledge that this was going to create a niche for them. The album was catapulted to fame by the singles “Self-Esteem”, “Gotta Get Away” and “Come Out And Play”.



The Offspring’s “Self Esteem” is the second single released from Smash and speaks of being trapped in an emotionally abusive relationship and having full knowledge that one is not getting what one deserves, but is too weak to get out of it because of a very low self-esteem.



The lyrics of the song is as follows:




SELF-ESTEEM


(The Offspring)




I wrote her off for the tenth time today


And practice all the things I would say


But she came over


I lost my nerve


I took her back and made her dessert



Now I know I’m being used


That’s okay man cause I like the abuse


I know she’s playing with me


That’s okay cause I got no self esteem



We make plans to go out at night


I wait till 2 then I turn out the light


All this rejection’s got me so low


If she keeps it up I just might tell her no



Chorus


When she’s saying that she wants only me


Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends


When she’s saying that I’m like a disease


Then I wonder how much more I can spend


Well I guess I should speak up for myself


But I really think it’s better this way


The more you suffer


The more it shows you really care


Right? yeah yeah yeah



Now I’ll relate this little bit


That happens more than I’d like to admit


Late at night she knocks on my door


Drunk again and looking to score



Now I know I should say no


But that’s kind of hard when she’s ready to go


I may be dumb


But I’m not a dweeb


I’m just a sucker with no self esteem



Chorus


When she’s saying that she wants only me


Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends


When she’s saying that I’m like a disease


Then I wonder how much more I can spend


Well I guess I should speak up for myself


But I really think it’s better this way


The more you suffer


The more it shows you really care


Right? yeah yeah yeah
