Living In Chaos

Album: Conspiracy Of One (2000)


  • In an interview with Kool magazine, Offspring guitarist Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman explained how the song came together: "'Living In Chaos' is I think probably our biggest departure for this record, I can't really think of an Offspring song that sets a precedent for it, except that it's got that Middle Eastern kinda feel to it. We wanted to come up with a song that just had the crowd jumping up and down in unison in front of us, and this is our attempt to come up with something that will get them to do that - most of our stuff is really too fast to get 'em to jump up and down together! Lyrically it's about living in a society that seems to be running amok, or the feeling that it is when things start to get to you."
