Are you crazy!? No. I can't tell you any numbers, but I know for sure that the Greatest Hits didn't sell as much as American Idiot.

Anyway, don't tell me that you started listening to The Offspring when they released Ignition.

I think Offspring sold more CDs.

offspring has sold about 10 million more albums then greenday. greenday has sold about 20 something million records. and offspring has sold 32 so its probobly about 10 million more records.

:D Ixnay. Close enough. Comparative to the little kids who got into them with "Want You Bad", I think I'm still in the clear as far as non-n00biness is concerned.

Of course not! Americana for me! But I didn't know about them and no one I knew told me about them. My dad bought me the cd and I just loved the music. IT WAS THE FIRST CD I EVER OWNED I THINK.

I started listening to them with S/T actually:D when I was, what, 8 years old... lol

Now seriously, I started with Smash, more precisely with Self Esteem. That was the big hit in my country. I only got to know come out and play a few weeks later...

I remember reading from some magazine of from internet that Offspring is biggest selling punk band worldwide(sorry that i don`t remember the source).
But who gives a shit witch one has sold more, i like Offspring the best and Green Day only has 1 good album (dookie) and few goon songs.
