Written by Offspring frontman Dexter Holland, this sinister stalking song was inspired by a not-so-sinister source. The band's guitarist, Noodles, told Kool magazine: "'Special Delivery' is just about a sick guy who's a stalker - one of the first songs Dexter ever wrote had a real similar sentiment, and was about a friend of ours, who is pretty harmless but we made him really sinister in that song! But there are people out there who are like this and that's kind of scary. The song is slow, kinda chaotic and schizophrenic."
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
