"Bad Habit" as written by and Greg Kriesel Ron Welty....
Hey man you know I'm really okay
The gun in my hand will tell you the same
But when I'm in my car
Don't give me no crap

'Cause the slightest thing and I just might snap
When I go driving I stay in my lane
But getting cut off makes me insane
I open the glove box

Reach inside
I'm gonna wreck this fucker's ride
I guess I got a bad habit
And it ain't goin' away Yeah

Well they say the road's a dangerous place
If you flip me off I'm the danger you'll face
You drive on my ass
You're foot's on the gas

And your next breath is your last
Drivers are rude
Such attitudes
But when I show my piece

Complaints cease
Something's odd
I feel like I'm God
You stupid dumb shit god damn mother fucker

I open the glove box
Reach inside
I'm gonna wreck this fucker's ride

    General CommentThe reason I love The Offspring so much is because they are so sarcastic. This is just one of many of their songs that showcase their clever sarcasm. This song is the high point of every Offspring concert. They stop abruptly right before the "stupid dumbshit goddamn motherfucker!" part and tease the audience because everyone's singing along with the song and are so ready to scream out those words as a mass. Then Dexter prompts the audience and everyone screams out "stupid dumbshit goddamn motherfucker!" with such veracity! It is not only fun but very cathartic. Sort of therapy for the masses, lol.....

    General CommentYeah ! it rules ! do it on the road ! I think there's personnal opinion behind the lyrics, it's a just a punk song ... it's fuckin' good when Dex sing "Drivers are rude
    Such attitudes
    But when I show my piece
    Complaints cease
    Something's odd
    I feel like I'm God

    General Commentthis song backs up my theory on how messed up america is"

    hahaha, you ignorant dipshit, yeah, like road rage only exists in america.... and i love how your theory is "proved" by nothing more than an offspring song.

    Well... Your country IS fucked up, but this problem DOES exist elsewhere. Although not to the same degree with the guns and all that crap. I'm going with Michael Moore on this one. :P
    And to you retards who "fuckin' love" this song because you think it's all about kicking ass and driving like a moron; It's not! Jesus... Kids... Can you say "sarcasm?"

    MemoryGosh my step brother and I use to beg my step mum to let us take music on car trips because my dad insisted on lecturing us with history and religious mumbo jumbo if we didnt bring music and we would beg my step mum to let us play music.
    my step brother hates my dad so he purposly put this song on the mixed tape (remember those) we were driving along the swaering bit came on and my dad pulled over the car and roared at us and we just cacked up laughing...needless to say to this day there is no music allowed in dads car.
