Americana was more popular than Smash???

well pretty fly was the most pirated song after all, and had major label backing, so not really surprising even though smash is arguably better

i agree, walla walla is my most hated offspring song, americana had great songs like tkaa and have u ever staring at the sun americana etc. but then not so good songs like walla walla feelings shes got issues, basically those 3. i can tolerate wdygaj just because theyve done that kind of stuff before, but man take out those 3 and the cd is much better.

Americana is a good album, Many songs of it are classics by now; The Kids arent Alright, Have You Ever, Staring At The Sun & Pretty Fly although I dont really like pretty fly anymore, but I did back in the days. Also other great songs like: Americana, End of the line and Walla Walla are on it so I really thinks the album is worth their sales.

And more for the subject, Smash had more US sales. But Americanas worldwide sales are HUGE, they were topping the sales lists in like at least 15 countries. You have no idea how big they were in 1998 here in sweden. They sold out a 15.000 outdoor arena in the summer. After that show, its been like 2000-3000 at each show here in Stockholm.

So I can't understand that people think that Smash sold more than Americana worldwide, because it didn't. Also Ixnay/co1 sales are abit low, I think those records are great albums.

And for the next album after the greatest hits album I want less mixed up songs like spare me the details and worst hangover ever, I want like Co1. Not much mixing up in that one. But a ixnay kind of record would be totally awsome, I know they can write good punksongs, real punksongs. But they can also include some slower songs like 'gone away', 'vultures', 'race against myself' and 'Amazed'. Sure if they want something different too, they can do songs like 'Walla Walla' or 'I Choose'. Good songs even if they are different. If they just try to release the most punksong they have ever written as a first single I think it will sell very good. And people who used to listen to them back in 94/97 will maybe find their path back to The Offspring.

Over and out -->

Damn right, Pretty Flys is the only song i hate on that album now even though i used to like it, the music is still cool though for that song.

I think so too, co1 is my favorite record along with ixnay and smash. But Americana is a great record anyway.

yep, this is correct info. about 36-37 aprox albums sold world wide, making them the worlds most sucessful, dare i say it, punk band, in the world (in terms of sales) and smash holds the world record for most sucessful indie album. now that is pretty amazing, considering it is over 10 years old, and indie music is a lot more popular now

dude your numbers are bullshit because ignition was certified gold in the US gold means 500,000 copies. And Smash was there biggest not Americana. Americana was the most pirated. and Ixnay was certified platinum in US, Australia and UK so thats 3 million atleast.

200.000 to the offspring - 2001 version
500.000 to ignition ..thatīs the correct info

Piedude
10-24-2004, 09:18 AM
Ignition sold 40,000 around the time it was out, but after smash and all the other records that have gotten em new fans they'd have tried it, so a million worldwide wouldnt surprise me.
Ixnay sold 1 million at the end of its first year, so its probably 3-4 by now...

Hey of course offspring is better but green day bashing is wrong, green day rocks, their biggest problem is their stuff sounds pretty similar and they dont have as many standout songs like the Offspring. True Offspring have better guitar and vocals but Green Day bass is better. Also American Idiot is better than Splinter IMO, but Offspring are still better.

Jake
10-24-2004, 07:15 PM
everyone has there on opinions and tastes and noone can force you to like something you dont, unless you dont like the offspring, but its ok if you dont becasue you going to hell...jk..not...-not
