Sorry if this is somewhere else on the site :(



THE OFFSPRING are to release their greatest hits album in early 2005 - and it will feature new material.
The US punks, who played the Main Stage at this year’s Carling Weekend: Reading And Leeds Festivals, say that the album will also include a cover of a Police track. Frontman Dexter Holland won't divulge which one, though admits whether he can reach Sting’s high notes has played a part in choosing which one.
"I've been messing around with it in the car, like, 'Can I hit that?'" he says. "We're not doing 'Roxanne’. That's really up there."
The album will feature band classics such as ’Self Esteem’ and UK Number One hit ‘Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)’ as well as the new tracks recorded this summer with Morrissey producer Jerry Finn.
"I've gone back and forth about it," said Holland, "and just decided that, unfortunately, the way the world works now, if you really want to get people to hear about a greatest hits record, you need that new song.
"People think of greatest hits like, 'Oh, does that mean you're going into acting?'" Holland continued. "But I really want to put out another record next year. All the new songs feel pretty good," he explained to Rolling Stone.
Holland also revealed the band’s plans to join next year's Warped Tour.
"We've never done it, and I think it would be fun," Holland says, reminiscing about Warped shows they've attended. "We've run across everybody over the years, and I would be like, 'Oh! There's NOFX! There's Rancid. It's like a big bro-fest."

A bit odd having greatest hits stuff and new songs on the same album..hmm..But i'll look forward to it anyway, should be interesting! I was just thinking the other day actually its probably about time they should have a greatest hits after all their albums!

I hope Bad Habit and Beheaded are on here...those are my favorite Offspring songs ever! :D

I really hope they dont have like
pretty fly, wdygaj, cant get my head around you and hit that.

i dont hate those songs, but i hate the way that everyone thinks those songs are some of the best offspring songs which is bullshit. ixnay had like meaning of life and that never gets noticed. there are so many NON SINGLE Songs that get ignored by wanna be Offspring fans.

Secondly.... Even if tey just lied and put nothing on the cd, just stuck it out in stores and said it was a greatest hits cd, I'd buy it with out thinking twice.

lol... seriously that's how I am with THe Offspring, and the rest of my favorite bands, I'll buy just about anything they put out until they totally dis-appoint me with something.

thank you for sharing!
a greatest hits album with a few new songs is not
a new thing. at least not to me. i think it's a very
good idea. i cant wait for it, but i wouldnt count on
"early 2005".

10-28-2004, 03:20 PM
it would be nice to have it ealry 2005 but i dont think it will be out til june or later

10-28-2004, 04:28 PM
for the tv adds they need to have TKAA, COAP, CGMHAY, pretty fly[unfortunatlely], self esteem,all i want,.

it has to have new songs for us actual yfans. they have to reward us for buying ti if we already have so many of their previous.
