"Can't Repeat" is a single by American punk rock band The Offspring. "Can't Repeat" was released to radio on May 10, 2005. It is the first track on their compilation album, Greatest Hits, and the only original track on the album (not including the hidden track, "Next to You"). It was released on June 20, 2005.


Dexter Holland is said to have written this song while flying solo around the world. Speaking about its inclusion on Greatest Hits, he said 'the way the world works now, if you really want people to hear about a greatest hits record, you need that new song'.

Music video

The music video for the song simply featured the band playing in a derelict room, and it received little airtime on MTV. An alternate version was made showing actors looking back on photographs and memories, reflecting the song's subject matter, though this was very rarely shown. It was the second and final video to feature Atom Willard playing the drums.

The original music video starts with Kriesel playing the opening melody with his special, "k-covered" bass, hence to his nickname of Greg K., then Willard comes in, and finally Holland and Noodles. The melody stays about the same throughout the song.

DVD appearances

The music video also appears on the Complete Music Video Collection DVD. It was released in 2005.
