IN AUstralia the Offspring are huge. It's the only country they did an encore for after a TV show performance. But remember in the US it takes one million copies to become Platinum while in Austrailia only 70,000 to become Platinum...Offspring sold 70,000 first week sales in US. If you look next to it, it said it's gold already so atleast 35,000 were sold ^^. That's very good.

BobdaAlkoholic is right - The Offspring are really big in Australia, this could be perhaps one of their most successful territories. Even Splinter, despite it's lack of advertising and bad choice in a lead single managed to surface inside the top ten, it was at around number 7 I think.

Not only that Splinter was rumored to have a third single "Spare me The Details" because the track became a huge radio hit and top 30 track in Australia.
