Nitro, for sure. Especially(that's most likely spelled wrong, but I don't care and I'm lazy to check dictionary.com) now that Crime In Stereo has been signed to Nitro.

Offspring7
09-12-2005, 04:49 PM
its actually spelled right...but i agree the descendants should have been signed to nitro

yeah definatly. among other reasons, just the stupidity of the name fat wreck chords(even though i "get it") makes nitro better.

it's close, but i'd say nitro

here's the bands on each record label:
fat wreck (http://www.fatwreckchords.com/bands.php3?sd=QyYwd9HRMXIAAEAN6t0)
nitro (http://www.nitrorecords.com/bands.php)
(if you wanted to know)

It's really hard for me.

Good Bands On Fat Wreck:

Nofx, Descendents, Less Than Jake, and Lagwagon.

Good bands On Nitro:

Offspring, Rufio, Aquabats, TSOL

So I'm tied. Blah!

Nitro :d :d

Tough call, I'm gonna go with Nitro purely based on the fact that TSOL are signed there. I wouldn't consider The Offspring a Nitro band when the only album they've put out on that label is a re-issue.

Damn, didn`t knew that there were so many bands on Nitro.

It's gotta be Nitro hands down. A Wilhelm Scream, The Letters Organise, Crime In Stereo (Who are releasing a new album in April) and TSOL. Not to mention AFI and The Vandals.

this is tough... but I wouldn't consider offspring a nitro band... and AFI isn't on there anymore so I don't consider them either... but TSOL, vandals, the damned, guttermouth and rufio are great... but so are against me!, anti-flag, lagwagon, mad caddies, me first and the gimme gimmes, nofx, no use for a name, strung out, swingin utters, tilt and wizo... plus the ataris were on there when they were still good... huh, I guess fat wreck wins hands-down :P

You cannot include The Ataris if you won't include AFI. Head on over to the Nitro website, a lot of the newer, up and coming bands have MP3's on site.

Nitro all the way (this is an Offspring forum after all) but i still prefer Nitro either way

I'm actualy into "Out Of Control" by Rufio, it's not a bad song.

Out of Control was great, and I really liked that song, but Drowning got my vote on the Rufio front.

Comparing the bands, I'd say Nitro. That is also a completely unbiased decision, too. I don't really like NOFX and Nitro has bands such as The Vandals, The Aquabats, and AFI (oh, c'mon! You know they still count!).

Nobody mentioned theSTART and that's shame! *shakes finger*
This band alone can kill any fatrecord's band.

I agree, Crime in Stereo are an awesome band.

I love both.

I love 10 bands on Fat Wreck and they made the Rock Against Bush CDs.
I love 5 bands on Nitro.

But from the looks of it, Fat Wreck Chords wins.

Kitten
03-07-2006, 12:25 PM
But how much do you love those bands?

And yes, it is a terrible thing that no one mentioned theSTART. However, they are not the trump card you think they are HAU.

Rutegard
03-07-2006, 12:39 PM
yeah i prefer nitro's bands

Well, i don't know about selling but they are musicaly one of the best bands I have ever heard. Shakedown! have been 7th best alternative album of the year although not released on nitro.
Initiation is great album too. Listen to "The Conversation"! It's amazing. :)

Fat Wreck Chords.
Typical example of thru punx! :D

pff...theSTART and AFI are better than Fat Wreck Chords.

I haven't heard a whole lot of Fat Wreck bands, so Nitro by default.

But, Fat Wreck has the Descendents and the Epoxies, both of whom are just incredible. Plus, if I'm not mistaken, Fat also has ALL now. Someone should correct me on that if I'm wrong.

This band alone can kill any fatrecord's band. Yes! theSTART is pretty good. I like Eimee and her voice! :) They are play really good alternative punk. I vote for Nitro!

I saw theStart when they did a tour with Goldfinger, didn't care for them. The bass player was cool, I talked to him after the set, and the drummer gave me a pair of sticks, i just didn't like the singer.

i have to agree with u, the RAB cd vol 1 is totally awesome, good bands and stuff, but i prefeer the Nitro Records

AFI's not on nitro anymore

Why is Offspring still on Nitro? Is it because they had a record that was released on it?

I dont like most of the bands on Fat...Nitro has(had) much better bands on the label...AFI, The Offspring, The Vandals...so on.

the offspring was never ON nitro! they never signed a contract or anything- they just re-released one album on there. That doesn't make them a nitro band! They are a columbia band, and they have been for 10 years.

Actually yes that does make them a Nitro band. If they released an album on that label, then they belong to that label under credited bands. Even if they arent on it anymore, they still get listed. Catch my drift?

Llamas
03-08-2006, 05:59 PM
yeah that's dumb, though. then the offspring is a nitro band, an epitaph band, and a columbia band... and what about bands that have been in business for like 20 some years and have been on like 6 labels? just seems dumb. I consider the offspring a columbia band.

Actually, The Offspring would have to sign a contract in order to give the label permission to re-release that album. I would say it is more accurate to say they are currently a Columbia band, because it could quite easily be argued that some of their better stuff came out on Epitaph (just for example).

And technically that album was originally a Nemisis (sp?) record.

They are in the back catalogue. That's why, despite the fact AFI has left Nitro, they are sill listed as a band on Nitro.
