  • Lyrics
  • The Offspring fittingly chose "Come Out Swinging" as the opening track to their sixth studio album. "It's one of my favorite songs on the record," Noodles, the band's guitarist, told Kool magazine, "a fast, hard-driving, punk rock, melodic tune, and it's got a great meaning behind it - that when things start getting rough, and you start to get frustrated with the way of the world, don't just let it run over you, but come out and fight against it, and I love that kind of song. I love the feeling of the music, and when it's got a good lyric behind it like that, it makes it all the more worthwhile to me."
