On the official chart, that's great. And soon the DVD will be number #1 too I think... they still got the success here.

Yeah! You saw also the tv-program? Why did they show Pretty Fly... :rolleyes:
I have to admit that the position number 1 was a little surprise to me.. :eek:

Zee
07-16-2005, 02:50 AM
Yup, I watched it.

Well, last time they showed Can't Repeat. Pretty Fly is maybe their biggest hit and I think a brilliant, brilliant song too. Maybe next time Come Out And Play.

They beat tough names such as Coldplay, Foo Fighters...

Hey, I checked this out (but I'm not 100% sure), GH's position #1 is the first time to Offspring since Smash (not sure was it ever #1) being number 1 on Finland's official album chart! :eek:

Yup, Americana did not make it, either Co1. Americana was #2 many weeks, and stayed at top10 multiple weeks, and Co1 did the same.

Actually, if you check out the archives there, it says that even Smash didn't make it number one! That one I don't believe though, it was helluva long on the charts and that archieve doesn't have that many weeks listed there... Splinter did only #37 and #33 so this position is pretty good now.

Come out and smash'em up!
07-16-2005, 03:15 AM
I saw it too. It was surprise for me to see pretty fly on tv after 6 years it's publishing. Is Can't repaeat a single in finland? and does it have a good chart position?

I think it hasn't been released here on a CD...

07-16-2005, 03:24 AM
Then i think it will not be realesed in here ,couse singles come before the actual cd,s.

Aamulehden valo-liiteessä GH oli vasta sijalla #8, mutta se oli ylex:n "erittäin virallinen" lista. Monissa musaliikkeissä ja marketeissa GH on ollu ykkönen. Tiatoo millon DVD julkastaan? Jos oikein muistan niin joskus ens viikolle, mutta on kellään tarkkaa päivää?

Edit:
Oon sitten viikon kärjestä. Eilisessä lehdessä oli viime viikon lista. No onneks ehdin korjaan ennenkun ehti kukaan haukkuun tyhmäks :confused:

Ha, I wish it was like that.

But mainly because of the upcoming club gig they have got a lot of publicity, it's advertised everywhere.

It is organized by a beer brand (Koff, they spell Offspring) (K)offspring at one point on the pages) and you can only win tickets. The place holds 800. Maybe 100 finnish b-list celebreties, 50 through fan-applications and the rest can only be won by pure luck.

Wow! Number one? I could have never imagined and dreamed that could happen. I am so happy! I am not happy because they are popular but because that means that so many people actually like great music. The more people listen to good guitar based music the less I have to hear that RAP shit. And maybe now at some parties I could play Offspring without everyone always interrupting. That happened happened with Greenday when they the Boulevard of broken dreams was a hit. People tend to listen to stuff that is "hot" right know. You just have to wish that it is good (or great if Offies) music.

Please post if you see any comments regarding the #1 position! What did they say during the Lista program about this? Damn! If I would have ever guessed that Offspring would have a chance to make it #1 then I would watched the show :(

Edited: Wait a minute. This isn't actually a good thing. I would have hoped that GH wouldn't make it to the charts and there would be no promotion. Because now I have even smaller chance to get in to the club gig. After the gig GH could sell 1 million copies here :p

Ha, it's getting bad indeed, entering the club gig that is. They advertise it on tv, maganizes (best place at Ilta-Sanomat net, thousands of readers), EVERYWHERE. Now that they are number #1, Jaysus... they could have filled Hartwall Arena.

Do they not promote alot of Black Music in Finland ?

If so then thats why their at #1 , its black music that makes them look
bad , all these bastards promoting garbage instead of actual music. :eek:

Hell , if I was in charge of the labels , I would pay the black musicians
lesser money so they can't bitch about them being rich , not only that
but I would make sure that their album doesn't get alot of sales.

Fuck me, I'm so out of the loop.

Haha, I actually walk by the cd in the record store at least once or twice a week when I'm downtown and I just think to myself, "Shit, who'd buy that? It doesn't have their best songs anyway!".

Don't get me wrong, it has *some* good songs, some excellent songs and some crap songs but whatever, this is a fan opinion again.

But #1?! That is insane!

Then again, must remember it IS summer. Who buys records during the summer? I hardly ever do.

But yeah, they could fill the Hartwall Arena. Shame they're just doing the club gig... And I still haven't won tickets to that thing. Goddamnit.

Zee
07-24-2005, 11:18 AM
That's true, summer's pretty quiet time I guess, but still #1 is always #1.

And I haven't won tickets either yet, but I trust at my fan application... half a leg at the gig already for sure. ;)

Vera
07-24-2005, 11:36 AM
I won't be too disappointed if I don't get to go but of course it'll suck. Then again I could always try to stalk their hotel while they're here. ;D

Zee
07-24-2005, 11:51 AM
Or just locate their tour bus and explain the situation, I'm sure one would get in from backstage. :D

Zee
07-24-2005, 03:02 PM
It does, hehe.

The radio dj just wondered that Finland's probably the only country where it's #1 and in other places it doesn't do so good (expect Austria), I wonder if it's truely so.

Ha, that Crazy Frog collection or whatever didn't beat the Offspring, so third week in a row for the Offspring at #1, Crazy Frog debut at second place.

Well actually it has been #1 three weeks, but on the charts it has been four weeks, it started from 8th place and since that it has kept the first place. But it's good to see Crazy Frog is still behind, it's going to be a tight battle between Offspring and CF next week, they announce the new list each Saturday.

Well let`s hope that Grazy Frog gets kicked away from Finland. I Read from finnish newspaper (iltalehti or iltasanomat) that our customer service office, (or what ever that is in english) is investicgeting possible illgal acts the company might have done in their marketing.

In Switzerland Offspring was one week on #5. After 6 weeks on the charts they are know on 12. In Germany they didn't reach the top 10 and they are now at 45 (last week 48).
