"Cool To Hate" as written by and Greg Kriesel Ron Welty....
I hate a lot of things
I hate a lot of people that are lame
I like to hate stuff
'Cause then I don't havae to try and make

A change
I hate teachers
I hate school
I hate the cheerleaders

And anyone who's cool
I hate the office
I hate the Quad
Don't want to learn nothing
I want to be a slob

It's cool to hate
It's cool to hate
I don't like nothing and I like that fine
(Liking something's just a waste of time)

It's cool to hate
It's cool to hate
I don't like nothing and I like that fine
(Liking something's just a waste of time)

I don't like nothing and like that fine
(Liking something's just a waste of time)
Yeah I hate everything
I even hate you too
So fuck you

I'm always thinking bad
I never have nothing good to say
I'd rather tear things down
Than build them up

It's easier that way
I hate the jocks
And I hate the geeks
I hate the trendies

But I also hate the freaks
I hate Dr. Martens
And Muscle T's
I'm only happy when I'm in my misery

I'll cut you down and give you lip
Being positive's so unhip
I'll cut you down cause I'm a fool
Being positive's so uncool

I hate the jocks
And I hate the geeks
I hate the trendies
But I also hate the freaks

I hate your band
And I hate TV
I'm only happy when I'm in my misery

    General CommentDude... this song couldn't be more satirical/sarcastic, i'm really glad you all hate everything, but dude, it points out in the beginning of the cd that if something sounds sarcastic, don't take it seriously, and at least a third of all offspring songs are satirical or sarcastic in some way. I think this whole song is totally pointing out the trend of people hating everything... "i'm only happy when I'm in my misery" dude, that's a pretty straight-forward oximoron, and this goes against all dexter's other songs if it wasn't satirical. He always is up to fighting for what you believe and making a differense, and this song would be about hating everything and not helping jack including yourself. So It's my opinion based on this that this song is just using overstatement to emphisize how people can get drawn into hating everything and slowly stopping enjoying anything.

    General CommentThis song is so awesome! I could be wrong, but I think that it's a satire on the teens in this day and age who think it's cool to hate everything (no offense BeanMcD), shown in lines like "Don't like nothing and I like that fine," and "Liking something's just a waste of time," and "I'm only happy when I'm in my misery."

    General CommentYeah BeanMcD this is my anthem too. Im considered a freak to disturbed child. Its just about hating everyone and thats what makes you happy. See when you hate someone you don't expect anything from them so you happy that way. I hate pretty much every thing they sing about. But I really hate anyone that thinks they are cool.

    General CommentActually...
    TacoGoodness described the line "i'm only happy when I'm in my misery" as an oxymoron, but it does make sense literally to me. I do agree the song is supposed to be ironic though.

    General CommentDexter believes in fighting for what you believe and making a difference? How is selling out and making shitting albums for the mainstream making a difference? Dexter, Noodles, Greg K and uh, i forget his name so I'm just going to call him Sparky, are a bunch of coporate brown nosers who cherish their money more than their fans.

    General CommentHey wrinkledPhole... if you're going to accuse a band of something, at least have your facts straight. The fact is, Offspring may have sold out, but there's no way in hell that they cherish money over their fans. If that was true, why would they have supported Napster and told their fans to download their album rather than buy it? Doesn't make sense, does it? Don't complain about something when you don't know anything about it.
