The Offspring Drop Swinging New Song ‘We Never Have Sex Anymore’

The Offspring will soon be issuing their first album in nearly a decade, and listeners are getting a better idea of what Let the Bad Times Roll will sound like when it arrives on April 16 with “We Never Have Sex Anymore.”

Because, unlike the more straight-ahead alt-rock title track from the upcoming album, “We Never Have Sex Anymore” shows The Offspring are taking some creative chances deeper into the recording’s track list. The new tune — yes, it’s about not having sex with one’s significant other — contains so many horns that it sounds like singer Dexter Holland is fronting the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies.

Listen to the song and read the lyrics down toward the bottom of this post.

With that prominent brass section, “We Never Have Sex Anymore” struts in a way that recalls the sunny ska and swing revivals of the ’90s. (Besides the sullen lyrics dismayed over intercourse, the number also comes across as toe-tappingly upbeat.) What better sound to mine for The Offspring, the low “Self Esteem” punks who were ubiquitous on every rock lover’s car radio dial?

In just over a week, The Offspring’s discography will finally get a long-overdue update with Let the Bad Times Roll. It looks like a lack of sex won’t stop the rocking.

The Offspring, “We Never Have Sex Anymore” Lyrics

We never have sex anymore
We never roll around on the floor like we did so long ago
You never yell at me anymore
You never want to even the score like you did so long ago
But you’re still with me, so I guess I’m not complaining
And you always leave my dinner on the stove

Baby please!
If you won’t love me, will you hate me?
If you won’t violate me, well will you just at least aggravate me?
Baby please! (We never have sex anymore!)
It feels like war under the covers
One way or the other is what I say — hey hey hey

We never have sex anymore
We never make love to (our song) like we did so long ago
We never have emotional strife
You never even threaten my life, like you did so long ago
But I’m just doing me, so I guess am not complaining
And you let me drive your car when you’re not home

We use to do it constantly, we use to have a ball
We use to do it everywhere, now we never do it at all

The Offspring, “We Never Have Sex Anymore”
