One Fine Day

Album: Conspiracy Of One (2000)

Songfacts®:

  • Offspring guitarist Noodles calls this a "sing along in the pub" kind of song. "I think that sounds more like a 1977 British punk song than anything we've ever done before," he told Kool magazine. "We'd just had the NBA finals or whatever, and the Lakers won and there was a big riot in LA - and I know that Europeans are no strangers to riots breaking out in their soccer games, and it's even worse in some of the Latin countries - this is about having a riot with your friends and it's kinda poking fun at the phenomenon as well as rejoicing in it, I guess."
