actually, for the true offspring fanatics out there, the song was originally called "the blurb." the guitar/drum riff comes from one of their first singles, "baghdad" (not "tehran"). it was a b-side there, and they have used it in all three albums mentioned in above comments... just thought i'd attempt to set the record straight about where the song came from...

Actually, it's not Pay the Man, it's Change the World from Ixnay on the hombre. They used the same riff in Genocide, not Come Out and Play. I only know this because I spent 20 minutes rewinding genocide so I could learn to play that riff. Silly me could have just listened to the slower version at the end of Smash.

You guys are talking about two separate things. As soon as the song finishes at 2:50, you have the guy saying "Well, I hope you enjoyed our time together today. You know is seems harder and harder to sit back and enjoy the finer things in life. Well, 'till next time, ta ta". This finishes at 3:05. Immediately you have the intro to "Change the world", which is not released until the 1997 album Ixnay on the Hombre. This fades out at 4:00. There is then silence until 9:08, when a sitar version of the "Come out and play" intro comes in. This becomes intertwined with some of "Genocide".

Also, an interesting egg on the Offspring's 2nd album, Ignition, that I found. They released this CD before they were famous, so not many people have it. I have it as a reply because the stupid people didn't pass it as an egg. They're too strict about that. Anyway,on the actual disc, there is this seemingly meaningless blue art. Now open the booklet to the 2nd picture of a band member, Greg K, the bassist. Compare his photo to the blue art. Be amazed.

Actually.....*lol, so many people have started this way*.......the riff on "genocide" is played a lot slower at the end of track 14, "smash". this slower, lower version of the riff was re-used for the track "change the world", on Ixnay. also, the alternative version of the intro to "come out and play" has virtually the same drum part as the intro to "pay the man" on Americana. looks to me that the band were re-using old riffs, but to better effect, on later albums. maybe i'm wrong, but it seems to make sense.

Apart from that. Tried reversing all the tracks on the album? You'll see what mean.

It's actually part of "Pay the Man." A track off of the "Americana" CD.

Actually, you all seem to be talking about the wrong thing. The hidden track IS "Come Out And Play". However, this isn't what you are talking about. You all seem to be talking about what plays after the "Time To Relax" guy speaks after the final track (Which DOES sound like "Genocide" to me but I don't own anything besides Smash). The hidden "Come Out And Play" with the sitar is about 9:06 into track 14.

Yea, I have to say the same. The hidden track is the beginning of "Change the World"

I think you've got it backwards. The extra track on "Smash" can't be a track taken from either "Ixnay on the Hombre" or "Americana", because both of those albums came out after "Smash". You can't take a track off a CD that has not yet been released. To me that would mean that they took the extra track from Smash and put it on a later album.
