I remember (I'm not sure) "COAP" in 1994 but i was too young (10) for music. I played the soccer all the day :). I started to pay attention to music in 1996 - pop shit. I remember "I choose" in the TV and I didn't like it.

1998 - I heard "Pretty Fly" on the radio. I loved it. My brother bought Americana (not original - illegal). I slowly get into "She's got issues" and "Staring At The Sun"...etc. Then my bro bought "best of The Offspring" (illegal copy too) then I bought Smash,Ixnay,Co1 (illegal).

Summer 2004, I decided to buy all the albums (original),DVDs when I was in the USA.

So it was PRETTY FLY - 8 years!

About 2 years ago my sister downloaded some Offspring songs and I liked them. I burned a CD with the songs + some songs by other bands and brought it on our trip to Cyprus that summer. Then, a bit more than a year later, I had downloaded loads of other songs and I liked them a lot, so I bought Splinter and I loved it. I listened to it all the time. Then I got tired of it :p I'd say I've been a fan for about a year.

EDIT: Now my sister hates The Offspring 'cause I've listened to them so much.

Age 3 baby. I was real little and What Happened to you? was my favorite song in the world. So 11-12 years now, but unlike some people, That's almost my entire life.

The offspring has been my favorite band for 4/5 of my life.

.:SMASH:.
01-25-2006, 03:31 PM
i only heard of them when pretty fly came out. i remember back in grade three and everyone was singing: "give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh". and that's how the word got out about the offspring for me. i like pretty fly and thier pop stuff, but i prefer the early albums. going off topic but i dont know why people liked smash so much...i mean its good but i dont think it could be thier best..i'd say self titled, ixnay or americana

When my dad borrowed a copy of Americana from my uncle after hearing Pretty Fly. My uncle never got it back, my dad gave it to me. My dad later borrowed Conspiracy of One from an employee of his because he liked Original Prankster and Million Miles Away. That copy became mine.

How can you illegaly buy an album?
Black market.
You will pay half of the price, but there is missing part of artwork inside, missing credit...

I have been a fan since around 2000, so about 5 1/2 years now. Since I was 10. But I don't think that matters all that much, I appreciate all their music.

October 14th, 1995... (when I was 11)
I was on a journey with my class and someone had brought a "Smash" tape. I remember me and my best friend then going totally crazy on "Bad Habit" (Drivers are rude such attitude... ;) ) and "Come Out And Play".
Shortly after that a friend of mine made me a copy of it... a really awful quality copy, probably 15th generation, haha.
Anyway, in the next 3 years I listened to this tape a lot. Then "Americana" came out, and I became a FAN. You know what that means.
That lasted til the end of 2001 when I totally gave up on them and I started to listening to other, less commercial hardcore punk bands. Anyway, I still think Ignition and Smash are great records and I listen to them on occasion.
