OFFSPRING’S “SELF-ESTEEM”

from:

Offspring’s “Self-Esteem” is the second single from the punk band from Orange County’s third record “Smash” which was released in 1994.



Prior to this, the band, composed of Bryan “Dexter” Holland (vocals), Greg K (bass guitar) and Kevin Wasserman , also called “Noodle” (lead guitar) called themselves “Manic Subcidal”. They first started out as a band in 1984 and has gone through many drummers until they have settled with Atom Willard.



Under the band “Manic Subcidal”, they have released the song “Hopeless” and was part of a compilation album released by Mystic Records. From there, they changed their names into what we now know as “The Offspring” where they have released the single “7” Blackball/I’ll be Waiting” released under Black Label.



In 1991, they have produced the single “Baghdad” produced under Epitaph Records. The following year, they have recorded “Ignition” which has drawn attention to the band and what has started to put them on tour.



But their success really came after the landmark album “Smash”. The album was fueled by the hit singles “Come out and Play”, “Gotta Get Away” and “Self-Esteem”. The record sold a total of eight million copies.



Offspring’s “Self-Esteem” speaks of being stuck in an emotionally abusive relationship. It is about a man loving his partner who does not love him back and he has full knowledge of this but his low self-esteem prevents him from letting go. It is about settling for less than what one deserves because of a low self-perception.



However, according to the band, this song is not based on personal recount as many fans believe.



The full lyrics of the song is as follows:



SELF-ESTEEM (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
