The Kids Aren’t Alright è una canzone incisa su Americana (1998), quinto album studio degli Offspring, e da lì poi estratta come terzo singolo. Il titolo è un chiaro riferimento a “The Kids Are Alright”, canzone del 1966 dell’album My Generation degli Who.
E’ contenuta anche nel Greatest Hits uscito nel 2005, e nonostante un successo commerciale non eccelso al tempo, è considerata ad oggi la canzone più ascoltata degli stessi Offspring.

Offspring The Kids Aren’t Alright Testo Accordi Lyrics Chords

A#m                                         F#
When we were young the future was so bright (whoa)
                                   C#
The old neighborhood was so alive (whoa)
                                         G#
And every kid on the whole damn street (whoa)
was gonna make it big in every beat.

Now the neighborhood's cracked and torn (whoa)
The kids are grown up but their lives are worn(whoa)
How can one little street
Swallow so many lives?

Chorus:
Chances thrown, nothing's free
Longing for,used to be
Still it's hard, hard to see
Fragile lives, shattered dreams

Go!

Jamie had a chance, well she really did (whoa)
Instead she dropped out and had a couple of kids (whoa)
Mark still lives at home cause he's got no job (whoa)
He just plays guitar, smokes a lot of pot

Jay committed suicide (whoa)
Brandon OD'd and died (whoa)
What the hell is going on?
Cruellest dream, reality

CHORUS

Go!

SOLO

The solo is kind of hard to tab.
All the bends are full bends,  and where it says 16b 18 16r,
you have to bend 16 to sound like 18, then release it back on 16
