well everyone knows that....i think it started when offspring told them to tour and the guys rejected badly...i think in those times smash and dookie came out so....smash got much better than dookie, i think thats why greeen day hate offspring, but i dont really know thats why i posted this topic.....but what im really sue is that billie joe from green day says bad things about the offspring.....speacilly dexter, and there are interviews

I thought Green Day's newest album was their best yet. I think it's awesome! But I like The Offspring better...

THE OFFSPRING FUCKING BLOWS THEM AWAY.

Greendays very early stuff was awesome, then again Offsprings early shit was even better....

...im going with Offspring - just kuz Billys voice gets on my nerves after listening to them for half an hour, whereas Dexters voice would rock my nads off - if i had them anyway :D

Well, I've never really been a Green Day fan. I just don't like the popish sounding singing.

Well the Offspring are the best of course. But, Green Day`s new album American Idiot sounds fantastic. I really like that one, and by the way, it`s bullshit that offspring and green day dont like each other.

10-22-2004, 04:03 AM
Well i like the offspring and i got a lot of offspring stuff saw them on their splinter tour but Greenday rocks too i like their new album cause of the message in it. But i think you cant compare Offspring with Greenday cuz they really sound different. Both punk but different. I think Greenday is more Punk Pop and Offspring more Punk Rock.

They both rock :cool:

Fuck man. Billy said that Green Day were the ones that really started Punk Rock, which is absolute bullshit. I don't mind Green Day but they could never out-rock The Offspring. THey just can't even play as good as the Offspring either. THey sound alot worse. Ok I just got caught up in the heat of the moment. Green Day (their music) is not that bad. Not as good as the Offspring. :D

no they don't.....but with some research i found that smash sold 11 millions worldwide and americana 10 millions worldwide....but this chart only calculate de U.S. sells

CommonRider
10-22-2004, 12:22 PM
Green Day's new CD is better than SPlinter i think but Offspring still blow Green Day out of the water (and Green Day is my second favorite band), No one can match how many great standout and unique songs Offspring has IMO

Orange County
10-22-2004, 12:25 PM
Yeah, American Idiot is superb, much better than Splinter but out of the two bands Offspring do top the list with awesome songs such as Self Esteem, The Kids Arent Alright, The Noose, Smash, LAPD, Gone Away, Meaning of Life and many, many more!

offspringjon
10-22-2004, 12:37 PM
The Offspring are so much more energetic than Green Day. When you go see Green Day you can't really jump about as much cos the speed isn't up to that of the Offspring. I personally think that Green Day's live shows are a bit better than the Offspring's. Offspring kind of come on stage play their songs and only talk for a short amount of time. Whereas Green Day talk to the audience and get ppl up on stage to jam with them.

Thinking about it... it would be fucking AWESOME if the offspring did that. So dudes if you're listening in... :)

Orange County
10-22-2004, 12:39 PM
They used to get the audience on the stage, Musique Plus 01 and Germany 97 are two that spring to mind.

10-22-2004, 12:41 PM
cool. i heard that once at reading fest dexter smashed a security guy round the head with his RG (his guitar) for not letting a guy on stage

Some guy told me. thinking about it he probs lied.

the bastard. I wish offspring get the chance to headline Reading fest. i'm a bit annoyed that the darkness were headliners over the Offspring this year. the darkness have one album and the Offspring have 7 and are more famous and liked.

10-22-2004, 12:46 PM
i prefer the offspring but green day also rocks

but its complete bullshit that offspring hates green day.... you guys should read some interviews

offspringjon
10-22-2004, 12:54 PM
I'd love to see the Offspring and Green Day on the same stage, doing covers of each others songs. It would be great. I've never actually heard either band slate each other off i'm assuming that they get along but not as well as Offspring's relation with NOFX.

Stoffey
10-22-2004, 03:32 PM
I MUCH prefer Offspring..... :p

However I think main stream people prefer Greenday (in general if you asked on a general forum I reckon way more would say Greenday, and purely cause of their latest album which is a passing craze), I liked some of their new album but a lot of it was awfuly poppy!!

Green Day are cool, but too me doesnt match up..
american idiot is a fuckin cool song.

10-23-2004, 07:30 AM
the first three offspring albums rocked, the others vary from ok to very good...i havent heard anything besides green days greatest and american idiot, but i must say that they have many good hits and american idiot is far superior to splinter, even if smash or ignition beat it out

JediJoel
10-23-2004, 07:35 AM

10-23-2004, 09:34 AM
I like both. Green day is quite cool. Their nu album is ok. But I prefer Offspring, otherwise, I won't be here but on a Green day forum :D

Dave
10-23-2004, 10:04 AM
I would say Offspring, becasue to me Greenday sound a little repetative.

However, I have only heard 2 songs off American Idiot and they both sound damn good and original.

Whoo.

I love the Offspring and I like Green Day.... I'm gonna go see the Offspring AND Green Day next month too.... so yeah. Also, I don't think green day's new album sucks. Pretty damn good

10-23-2004, 12:46 PM
by the way Smash sold over 14 million to date of which 6.5 million is in the US but Dookie sold 10 million in the US and barely 2 more million worldwide. SO Dookie is more popular in America. Yeah Offspring would blow em away. (I do like Green Day)

Everybody knows that the Offspring are better. They have better sound and Noodles blows away billie. The Offspring play their instruments way better than Green Day.

Offspring all the way. You can't get better then them.

That's not true. Noodles said in an interview, that he likes Green Day. In early times, they made a lot of fun about Green Day. It's the past.



in my oppinion greenday suck and their last album is a piece of shit! :D
but thats only my poor opinion
There last album is the best ever and it's better than Offspring's Splinter. Sorry dudes, but it's true. :o
For the german people: EIN MEISTERWERK!
But that's only MY OPINION! ;)

greenday is okay but offspring is way better, because of the offspring i played guitar. they are my role models (not that iam a crazy fan or sumting :P)

the problem is....Smash didn't get off better than Dookie....Dookie hitted the 10 million sold

Hey, if you don´t know, Smash hitted the 11 million sold with Epitaph records!!! :D

Satankaban
10-27-2004, 04:52 AM
And I forgot to write, I like The Offspring and Green Day, too, but The Offspring is much better than them and if they don´t like each other, it´s their problem!!!

10-27-2004, 09:14 AM
very hard to decide, but i think offspring is better cuz theres less crap pop, although american idiot is far better than splinter or americana

10-27-2004, 09:18 AM
I L :D ove both. But in my opinion. I'd rather listen to the Offspring, going on the fact their songs have more than 3 chords!

10-27-2004, 09:24 AM
Offspring own Green Day. End of discussion. :cool:

ImNoHero
10-27-2004, 10:40 AM
Ok some of you are gonna hate me. but here goes

Lyrics:Its a TIE!
Vocals:Green Day
Guitar:Offspring
Bass:Offspring
Drums:Its A TIE
Live:Offspring
Albums:Offspring(bearly cause CO1 almost gave it to Green Day)

So the best band is of course THE OFFSPRING but its really close. Way to close.

LuH
10-27-2004, 12:26 PM
There's no way to compare this two bands! They rock!!!!!! The bouth are verry good and have awsome songs!!

Sixpence.
10-27-2004, 12:40 PM
In my opinion all discussions about bands and which one is better end up in chaos. Because all are humans and all are different and there will always be this little thing that the other band can do better.
For me I have to say, that I like Offspring much more, because their music always hits the spot (FOR ME! that's only my personal opinion. I'm not trying to convince somebody)
I also like a few songs of Green Day, I also like the single "American Idiot" - it rocks - but I think that it's some kind of clischee (or however this word is spelled...) to come out with a political statement before the elections...

And apart from that you really can't compare them. I mean look at the funky and crazy bassist of Green Day who's hopping around all the time - he's also funny - but Greg K. doesn't do that and Offspring has really great live shows. So what should I say... :rolleyes: :cool: :D

smash2004
10-27-2004, 05:51 PM
Yes! Greendays last album was crap!! Offspring are way better and Smash still is the biggest selling independant album of all time!

"Head over heals I‘ve fit in before
Now I don‘t want to do it no more
I‘ve held it all in with blood on my face
Built it up man so bad you can taste
I don‘t slag no one
I don‘t even judge
Don‘t give a shit cause I‘m not gonna budge
I just want to be who I want to be
Guess that‘s hard for others to see"

ANthor reason OFFSPRINGS BETTER:

here in Vegas Green Day announced there coming today right, to the joint where the Offspring have played 3 times

1st 2 times for 28 bucks
and 3rd for 25

well Green Days coming alone for fucking 46$. Green day have been acting like sellouts as of late. Offspring would never charge 46$.

so fuck green day, OFFSPRING WINS

Obie2trice
11-02-2004, 02:09 AM
$46? green day is a great band, but this is to much money for a concert

but the offspring r my gods
isnt this a bit of a weird thing 2 put on an offsrping forum?

noodlesfan
11-02-2004, 01:23 PM
the offspring kicks green day's ass. if they were to get in a fight a while back noodles probably could strangle a couple of 'em with the old mullet (i grew one out just in case this were to happen) and green day sucks balls worse than good charolette. :cool:

Sketch
11-02-2004, 01:34 PM
Green day's pretty darn awesome in my opinion. i think i've listened to their new album more times then i've listened to splinter when it was first released. I had no idea it had been 4 years between their albums. and i thought offsprings wait was long. and green days album was defenetly worth the wait. it had a ton of songs, all long, and they were all good. every track on the album was a song. no intro or when you're in prisons. i love the offspring but i think green days new album was better than splinter...

LaFeeVerte
11-02-2004, 01:53 PM
I don't think it's possible to write off one or other of these bands. Both have changed and evlolved with the time. However, it seems that Green Day have got it very right, whilst The Offspring seem to be slipping more and more toward commercial gain rather than producing quality music. If the judgement was to be made purely on each bands' last album, then without a shadow of a doubt, Green Day are far superior. But if you compare the two bands back catalogues, then it's impossible to call. Both have their strengths and weaknesses.

Sparkey
11-02-2004, 03:56 PM
Personally for me, it is, and always will be The Offspring, I like Green Day, but they just don't compare to The Offspring. After about 12 hour of Green Day I get bored, I find the guitaring very boring and the voice of Billie Joe does get on my nerves after a while, where I can listen to The Offsprings music and not get bored...EVER! I disagree with the opinion that Green Days American Idiot is better than Splinter, I have both, and think that Splinter is a much better album.

meaning_of_life
11-06-2004, 06:34 PM
ok, in the second page of this topic i said greendays new album was gay. well, since i posted that ive been listening to american idiot and nothing else... this album is amazing!!!! this could be my favourite cd ever.. jesus of suburbia WHOOO!!! but overall i like offspring better and nothing beats dexters voice, and noodles guitar

offspringpunk137
11-06-2004, 09:08 PM
personally i luv both bands..offspring more but still..one thing though is that green days new cd is one of there best when splinter doesnt come close to measuring up to older offspring such as smash/ignition/self titled..yup but thats my opinion

EmilyChappell
05-22-2005, 05:36 PM
in my opinion, green day is a wicked band but the offspring are far superior :P haha ;)
where can you fin the interviews that say they hate the band, does anyone know? thx

Actually Dookie went 10x platinum...
I am an avid Green day and Offspring fan, I don't like either more than the other. I don't care if they don't get along, they both fucking rock and all their CDs have been great.

did you guys heard the song self esteem live when offspring plays Basket case from green day befor starting to play self esteem??

and I dont think that american idiot is better that splinter,but the thing is that splinter is a very short album.take off when your in prison you have 11 song,neocon is very good but its not very a song,its more a intro to play live ,wich its amazing to see.so you have 10 real songs and some of them are kinda short.but I still go with offspring and splinter

dark muffin
05-22-2005, 06:44 PM
I think that there both awesome, but i've seen the offspring live more times than green day, offspring twice, green day once, but i'm going to see them both this summer! :D

I like both bands, but I can honestly say Offspring is way better. I liked Smash better than Dookie, because Dookie is overrated.

05-23-2005, 04:16 AM
Offspring are way way better, everybody says Dookie is a classic album but it only sold 11 million maybe more nowadays but Smash the last i heard wen x6 platinum reaching 16 million in album sales and if it beats Nirvana's Nevermind then there is no contest as to who is better, any how offspring are much better greenday shud enjoy this attention they are getting while it lasts! ;)

we have two kinds of bands.

Pop bands:

Simple Plan
Green Day (well they are pop NOW)
Good Charlotte

yes green day in the category of pop punk but i don't think offspring is similar with the other bands in punkrock bands. offspring has a very special sound. that makes the offspring special and the best punk band now.

well here are the cd's from them i own

Offspring:
s/t
ignition
smash
ixnay on the hombre
americana
conspiracy of one
splinter
greatest hits (presale)

green day:
3099/smoothed out slappy hours
kerplunk
dookie
insomniac
nimrod
warning
international superhits
american idiot

so...i got 8 cd's from each, so...im in love with both of them, muahah they both kick ass, but American Idiot is way to overplayed and over rater, creating too much green day posers. but offspring will always be one of a kind. its so hard to choose...

The Offspring is my favorite band of all time, and i think they're better than Greenday for multiple reasons. Greenday is all right but American Idiot wasn't a very good record, you can say its a mature album, i'm not tryin to hate on Greenday or nothin cuz they're a pretty good band, but goin from juss partyin and singin about girls to political issues sounds pretty weird, even though other bands such as Anti-Flag write about parties AND political issues, Greenday never really got into politics. But when they did they did hella good on the billboard charts, not that it really matters, but I guess they're juss tryin to get more respect from punk rock fans by telling them what they want to hear.

I think Green Day have remained faithful to their roots for all these years. They are massive now in the same way they were 10 years ago after dookie. People say they are more pop now, and maybe American Idiot is, but if you look at Warning the record before American Idiot it was even poppier, so they are forever altering their sound so they don't sound repetitive for the good and the bad.

The Offspring changed suddenly after Ixnay on the Hombre and haven't had a first single from an album that hasn't been a joke song since then, which is quite pathetic to be honest. Where as Green Day's lyrics have matured beyond belief, Offspring's are getting more and more stupid. Offspring are trying to make music for the masses after the success of Americana even though they're best work is they're original stuff. Get back to the basics and release another DECENT album Offspring. I have all Offspring and Green Day's records, but Offspring is quite dissapointing lately. Also I was in a games shop 2 days ago and on it;s own sitting on the 50% off table was a set of Offspring dolls costing $45.00!! Talk about selling out.

By the way Dookie has sold much more than Smash. The reason Smash is the biggest selling independant album of all time is because Dookie is not on an independant label. So all you people who keep saying it, it is irrelevant.

06-05-2005, 08:20 PM
you people realize, the same discussion is probably going on in the forums on the greenday website except there people are saying they like both but greenday is just a bit better instead of the other way around

oh yeah and just a note to the dude above me, I read in the news paper that greenday have sold a total of something like 25 million albums where as the offspring have sold more like around 35 million albums all together, and if even the newspaper can't get a simple fact like that right anymore.... then I dont know whats happening to the world

06-05-2005, 08:22 PM
Green Day are/is not pop! American Idiot sounds closer to Insomniac than anything. If they're not punk, there's a such thing as just-plain-rock. They are in no way pop.

I like the Offspring better, btw.

original_prankster
06-05-2005, 11:47 PM
Offspring and Green Day are my favorite bands, so it's sorta hard to choose but I choose The Offspring.

The Offspring's CD Splinter was really quite short. I liked it, but it's not one of my favorite albums. The tracks Long Way Home and Race Against Myself rock though. Hit That wasn't really a joke song. It didn't sound like one. The chorus was kind of joke-ish, but the rest of it did NOT sound like a joke song to me. I liked the keyboard in that song very much. Can't Get My Head Around You woulda made a better first single, though. ANd I wish Da Hui was on TV. When You're In Prison had me in laughing fits. I played it for my dad and he got a kick out of it too. The previous album Conspiracy Of One is much better than this one. Americana is underrated. It was a really FUN album to listen to in my opinion. She's Got Issues is one of my favorite tracks. And I know someone who is exactly like the guy explained in Walla Walla. :D Plus, Pay The Man is one of the coolest songs ever. I love the middle-eastern style it has. Have You Ever is a really good song, but when the chorus came up, I kept thinking of Dirty Magic. Ixnay On The Hombre is definately one of my favorites. The songs I Choose and The Meaning Of Life give me the urge to play air-guitar. All I Want is my least favorite Offspring song, yet it's quite fun to headbang to if I ignore the lyrics. I liked about 8 tracks on Smash, and the other 8 I could really care less about. What Happened To You is one of my favorite songs out of the 8 I like. The solo in it ROCKS. Oh, and Self Esteem and Gotta Get Away rock too. I also like Genocide, It'll Be A Long Time, Bad Habit, and Nitro. Igniton was fast paced and AWESOME. I listened through the whole thing in a day when I got it. I really liked Forever And A Day, Dirty Magic, Burn It Up and LAPD.

American Idiot was suprisingly long, considering it was from Green Day. I loved every song on it. That (and the PlayStation 2) was probably my favorite Christmas present this year. Hehe. Jesus Of Suburbia kinda bored me, but Homecoming was AWESOME and kept me entertained through the whole song. St. Jimmy and She's A Rebel are definately my favorite songs off of that CD. Also, Extraordinary Girl, Letterbomb and Holiday are very good tracks. St. Jimmy would have been a much better single than Holiday, but on the other hand, it wouldn't be a very good stand-alone track seeing as American Idiot is a story and that song explains one of the characters. Plus, this CD sounded like a mixture between Warning and Nimrod, my two favorite Green Day albums. Nimrod is my definate favorite from them. I just recently got it, and I'm finding myself hooked on it. The songs Haushinka, Take Back, Hitchin' A Ride, The Grouch, Reject, Redundant, King For A Day and Nice Guys Finish Last are my favorite ones. Definately worth listening to. My favorite songs off of Warning are Blood Sex And Booze, Deadbeat Holiday, Church On Sunday, Minority, and the title song Warning. It's mellow, but it's great music. Insomniac was the album that got me into Green Day. I had heard Brain Stew on the radio a while back and I really liked it. So, I got that one and Warning and I was instantly a fan. My favorites off of Insomniac are definately Geek Stink Breath, Armatage Shanks, Brat, Bab's Uvula Who?, Stuart And The Ave., No Pride, Walking Contradiction, Jaded and Panic Song. Dookie I've listened to about three times, since I don't own it. My brother owned that one, and took it when he moved. I really liked Chump, Longview and Burnout. Off of Kerplunk, I liked Private Love Slave and the original Welcome To Paradise. And 2000 Lightyears Away.

Well, that's all I have to say about the bands. I actually like them both equally. :D

just to throw my hat in the ring. i will always say that the Offspring are my favorite band. i have all of their studio albums, and i'm super pissed that i'm not going to see them this summer on Warped tour. I have almost all of Green Day's studio albums and I love them. American Idiot is so fucking amazing. and as far as comparing Live shows. I've only seen Green Day once, on the Warped Tour a few years back. They blew me away, it was one hell of a performance. I've seen Offspring 4 or 5 times, and i have never been dissapointed. Shit, at HFStival last year they upstaged The Cure and all of the other 20 some odd bands that were on the ticket. I could never say who is the "better" band. They both hold a place in my CD collection and always will.

no, Dookie sold 10 mil, but Smash sold 11 million (just like bouncingcoles said). Check the history, it says Smash got 11 million. Green Day, practically has a Grudge, they need to let go of it. Dexter is so much better than Billie Jo-whatever. But yeah after you listen to Boulevard of Broken Dreams for the third time, it gets so old. Heck, I listen to any Offspring song for forever!

That's not true. The band manager confirmed that they aren't recording and have not recorded any new material. Travis said in an interview that as far as he's concerned blink is over.

You can't really compare offspring and greenday on an offspring forum unless you're wanting biased answers. I've never liked greenday so i'm obviously going with offspring. As far as i know, offspring have no problems with greenday. However, Rancid are a bunch of hypocritical fucks, who bitched about offspring from the day they signed to a major. Rancid released their last album on a major and tried to cover it up.

Just so you know, Green Day can do the same as The Offspring. I think because American Idiot was so successful, it changed the thoughts Green Day had of themselves. And who gives a shit what Green Day are? Or The Offspring?

I think The Offspring are way better than Green Day, as are many other punk bands. Green Days songs are mostly the same style and they don't try anything new. Also on the latest album, American Idiot there were some filler songs for the latter half of the album like the last one and that "Wake Me Up When September Ends". Green Day should perhaps go on a song writing course.

Overall you can't beat the Offspring, but if you compare their last albums...I'm gunna have to go with green day, American Idiot was much better than Splinter.

I think The Offspring are way better than Green Day, as are many other punk bands. Green Days songs are mostly the same style and they don't try anything new. Also on the latest album, American Idiot there were some filler songs for the latter half of the album like the last one and that "Wake Me Up When September Ends". Green Day should perhaps go on a song writing course.
Finally, someone intelligent that hates Green Day for an honest reason. Calling them emo (wtf?) or pop isn't a good enough argument.

I think they're both great bands in their own right.
The Offspring have a more heavy, even hardcore-ish approach to their sound, whereas Green Day have a less serious, "fun" poppy sound.

I like Green Day, they're more talented in their earlier years though. I liked American Idiot just fine.

But the The Offspring was the first band I ever really got into. And they have more talent. I like their music better, besides.

in my oppinion greenday suck and their last album is a piece of shit! :D
but thats only my poor opinion.

I prefer offspring. for some reason people think offspring and green day hate each other. when they really dont at all. for some reason people think there is shit between them just because they both got popular at the same time.

That's your opinion, not facts. I don't like Green Day very much. I just don't like their sound and I think their lyrics are mediocre. But that's just my opinion, and I'm not gonna say that The Offspring are a better band. But I definitely like them more. And I happen to like the "joke songs", and most of them have meanings too.

Jeez.. Who cares? The Offspring aren't punk either and as far as I can remember this thread compares the two bands to each other, so whether Green day are punk or not doesn't have anything to do with this. But that reminds me, I don't understand people who say that Green Day's old stuff is better, 'cause I can't hear a difference between their new songs and their old. I think they all sound the same.

They were actually a bit underground punk on Slappy Hours. I mean, I still like them. I just find that their new sound abandoned past albums and that they should start playing music from their former roots.

Offspring never did that. And Dexter isn't cocky like Billie Joe. :D

I disagree with you completley, Green Day's first two albums are complete shit when compared to later efforts, such as Nimrod and Warning. Which is kind of the complete oposite when you look at The Offspring, as i consider Ignition to be far superior to Splinter. Personally I was hoping Green Day would continue with the Warning sound, but American Idiot was still an amazing album.

If you want to hear a more 'raw' sounding Green Day, may i suggest Pinhead Gunpowder (Billie Joe's side project)

.I'm pretty sure smash did do better than dookie. I'm sure it sold more copies. Also it was an independent album, unlike dookie which was backed by a major label, so there's a moral victory there too.

And as far as Green day’s guitar riffs being upsettingly basic, just because something is simple and easy to play, that doesn't make it bad (I'm a guitar player too btw). Something simple is usually better than something that's overly complicated. Besides, it's not like The Offspring's riffs are that much more technical and complicated than Green Days. Look at self-esteem, one of their greatest songs ever and it's also one of the most simple Offspring songs ever. Anyway, I'm not trying to defend Green Day or anything (I really don't like them either) I'm just saying that 'Basic' doesn't necessarily equal 'Bad'.

I actually think that Dookie sold more copies than Samash. The only reason there was such a big deal about Samash was that they sold the most on an independant label.

As for the Green Day vs The Offspring thing, this has been done into the ground. They are both on par in the sense that they have been competitors during their careers, and for anyone that thinks it is better to like The Offspring because they are less well known, fuck yourselves. We don't need people on here that base their musical tastes on how obscure a band is.

I used to like the Offspring better, but Green Day's music stands the test of time better. The Offspring's music seems kinda silly to me now. I still like them, but I'm not the fan I used to be. Green Day, on the other hand, is a band that I've always liked and still like. And no, their last record didn't suck. Holiday is still overplayed, and the album won a grammy that Velvet Revolver should've won, but it's still a good album. The only Green Day song that I find myself growing out of is "Basket Case." I don't know why, but that song just seems kinda silly to me now.

There are quite a few. I was reading an older one from around 1998-2001, in which the interviewer mentioned that The Offspring were playing a show, only a couple miles away, and then Armstrong started to run his mouth. The other guys in the band didn't say much though.

Smash did do better if you considered the fact that they were on an indie label. Green Day sucks. They are to close to emo to be called pop punk. Billy Joe is just upset because he has a pencil dick.

Before I start, I just want to say that I'm impartial. I don't believe in hating one band just because you like another. Ok, now that that's been established:

Just because they look a certain way and have 1 maybe 2 emo songs does not make them emo. Does that make The Offspring ska (What Happened to You, Don't Pick it Up) or alternative rock/metal (Defy You, Race Against Myself)?

Don't judge a band because of the one video you saw on MTV.
