"Bad Habit" is the third track on The Offspring's 1994 third album, Smash.

In late 1994/early 1995, there was apparently some confusion as to what was going to be the third single off Smash, and the Los Angeles-based modern rock station KROQ began playing "Bad Habit" during that period. The fact that "Bad Habit" was going to be released as a single turned out not to be the case after it was confirmed that "Gotta Get Away" was going to be the follow-up to "Self Esteem". Despite never being released as a single, "Bad Habit" still gets airplay, mostly on KROQ.

Lyrics

Hey man, you know, I'm really okay
The gun in my hand will tell you the same
But when I'm in my car, don't give me no crap
'Cause the slightest thing and I just might snap

When I go driving, I stay in my lane
But getting cut off, that makes me insane
Open the glove box, reach inside
Gonna wreck this fucker's ride

Guess I got a bad habit
Of blowin' away (yeah, yeah)
Yeah, I got a bad habit (yeah, yeah)
And it ain't goin' away (yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeaheaheah (yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeaheaheah, oooh

They say the road's a dangerous place
If you flip me off, I'll tell you in your face
You drive on my ass, your foot's on the gas
And your next breath is your last

Guess I got a bad habit
Of blowin' away (yeah, yeah)
Yeah, I got a bad habit (yeah, yeah)
And it ain't goin' away (yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeaheaheah (yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeaheaheah, oooh

Drivers are rude, such attitude
But when I show my piece, complaints cease
Something's odd, feel like I'm God
You stupid dumbshit god damn motherfucker!

I open the glove box, reach inside
Gonna wreck this fucker's ride

Guess I got a bad habit
Of blowin' away (yeah, yeah)
Yeah, I got a bad habit (yeah, yeah)
And it ain't goin' away (yeah, yeah)

Yeah, yeaheaheah (yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeaheaheah (yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeaheaheah (yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeaheaheah, oooh
