Hey guys!

I'm interning for Fanscape records out in California and that basically means I'm interning the Vans Warped Tour. I'm sure tons of you will be out there at the Warped Tour and wouldn't mind asking the Offspring a few questions. In a couple days, I'm going to be interviewing the band and I want to ask them some questions directly from their fans. Send me any questions that you're dying to know about the Offspring and I'll make sure I ask them. The interview will then be posted on the Warped Tour newsletter so you can check it out and learn some more about the band!

- Ashley

The square root of 2 is 4. If not, that's why i'm bad at math.

Ask Greg where he got that great dance. :D

How about what's the theme of These Kids Aren't Alright [that you guys meant for it] because I've seen so many people coming to their own assumptions on the song. I guess even better where was your inspiration for Can't Repeat? <- thats my question. That song ROCKS! It's my 2nd favorite to Green Day's Good Riddance

I guess even better where was your inspiration for Can't Repeat? <- thats my question.Yeah. What Can't Repeat lyrics mean?

There were a lot of threads about that when it came out.

Questions

Why did you leave epitaph to go to columbia records?

Was there any turmoil when Ron Welty left the band?

How come the offpring does not put out records from there own label?

How has you style changed or progressed since putting out albums like Ignition or self titled?

Do you still consider yourselves a punkrock band?

The square root of 2 is approx. 1.414. 4 is 2 squared.

How come you didn't/can't do encores at Warped? How come Warped allows so little time for headline acts on these tours like The Offspring?

I know some (ALL?) of the stages don't have lights and things have to get done before dark. However the brief timespan was only enough to get in 10 songs. Its kinda of like beer tasting, Warped was a little sample of everything.

Those questions have been asked million times before. And they won't even answer the question about leaving Epitaph anymore (and they're right about that).

If they have been aked a million times before, you must know the answer. Do tell!
Granted they might not answer any of those questions....however,

Ashley was asking what questions she could ask. I simply gave her questions I am curious about myself.

Should I be asking about what there favorite colors are or anything else ridiculousy stupid about there personal lives?

KickedDown
06-24-2005, 01:16 PM
Any question you could ask they've probably heard a million times before...

I would just ask them what kind of aproach are they taking to their futures as far as the band goes?

What influences them today that didn't influence them when they first started, or even a few years ago?

If they could do it over, what would they change?

They made a comment at STL interview they liked greenday and some other band I don't remember (I hadn't heard of them).

Here's another.

What's Higgin's official job? Is he a member of the band? Does he do anything other than tour with you guys?

The ones that are married in the band...how come you never see them with wedding rings?

Its probably too personal to ask, but has anyone else noticed that?

BuddyHolly
06-28-2005, 01:00 PM
I've got a poster with Dexter and Noodles in front and you can clearly see their weddingrings.

Do you always have a smart ass remark for everything.

They left Epitaph because Brett was selling out.

There wasn't a turmoil when Ron left. He just wanted to put more time into his new band. The rest of the band and Ron are still friends.

Nitro isn't their label. It's Dexters label and he just wants to keep the band and Nitro seperated.

They just wanted to trie some different things in their music to keep it fun for them to play. Noodles also said that's it too difficult to write songs with the same 3 chords over and over again and still make them sound great.

They don't consider themselves a punkrock band, they consider themselves a rockband.


Edit:


The ones that are married in the band...how come you never see them with wedding rings?

so you asked: how come you NEVER see them with wedding rings... i just proved that I've seen em with wedding rings :rolleyes:

WOW you must have nothing better to do than be offspring's official spokes person.

I suppose if i had all of the time in the world to sit on the internet, i would know all of this stuff too.

If you know that much about a band...you have way to much free time.

And excuse me if i have never seen that poster....i do have better things to do than sit here compare and contrast posters, intervies and other random crap.

If i was 19, unemployed.....and had nothing better to do...i would know all of this.
However....back to the arguement that THESE QUESTIONS ARE NOT FOR YOU>>>THEY ARE FOR THE PERSON THAT STARTED THIS FORUM>>>WHO MADE YOU DEXTER HOLLAND or ANY REPRESENTITIVE OF THE OFFSPRING
