Denial, Revisited

Album: Conspiracy Of One (2000)


  • Offspring guitarist Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman spoke about the song in an interview with Kool magazine: "That's probably the slowest song I think we've ever done, I think we wanted to take something like 'Gone Away' from Ixnay On The Hombre and take it a step further - it's about a guy who refuses to accept that it's over, keeps thinking he can fix it, and then all of a sudden is forced to realize 'Oh damn, you know what? I've messed up for so long it really is over.'"
