"Nitro (Youth Energy)" as written by and Greg Kriesel Dexter Holland....
Our generation sees the world
Not the same as before
We might as well just throw it all
And live like there's no tomorrow

We are the ones
Who are living under the gun every day
You might be gone before you know
So live like there's no tomorrow

Ain't gonna waste this live
The official view of the world has changed
In a whole new way
Live fast cause if you don't take it

You'll never make it
So if you understand me
And if you feel the same
Then you will know what nitro means

You'll live like there's no tomorrow
Ain't gonna waste this live
There's no tomorrow
You ain't gonna live it for me

There's no tomorrow

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs from them... Ah, Smash rocks. But shut it with the selling out crap. Any band would get old if they didn't change. On top of that, Punk being used to label music is sad. Punk means expression and being who you are or want to be.

    Anyways, this song is my anthem. One of my friends recently died in their sleep of a heart condition that nobody knew about... Till after he died. Real young, and a nice guy, too. Death creeps up to anybody at any time. Therefore we need to live life to the fullest while we have it. After all, we each owe a death. Till that... Live life to the fullest. :)

    General Commenti'm so sick of fuckers writing about sellouts in here. if people don't like a fuckin band, then they shouldnt comment on their songs. people think songs like pretty fly and hit that, with their satarized lyrics are "sellout songs" yet their sarcastic views are no different than that of come out and play or bad habit. anyway, nitro is an awesome song w/ a great beat. the song has a sweet message- you don't know what the future holds, so live life to the fullest.

    General Commentim guessing this song has something to do with nitro records (one of the best record companys ever along with fat wreck chords, hellcat, epitaph, psychopathic, kung fu and well like 3 more i cant think of rite now) considering the fact they use to be a big nitro band along with afi and vandals (WHY DID OFFSPRING HAVE TO SELL OUT THEY USE TO BE SO MUCH BETTER... oh well at least they are still ok... not gonna sing about cutting peoples heads of nemore... beheaded was their best song....)

    General CommentPretty Fly (For A White Guy) was only more popular because all of the teeny-boppers liked the song. Why? Because radio stations overplayed and overpraised the song. Believe me, it's just not that good.

    Nitro on the other hand...:D

    General Commenthmm...i guess this song could be about anarchy, but i think its about living your life the way you want to live it and not letting other people get in your way.

    General Commentexcuse me, NOFXJuggaloGirgo, what are you talking about? Offspring were never on nitro, nitro was founded after they got popular. the label was named after the song, not the other way around.
