So I was just on the site www.rockonthenet.com (http://www.rockonthenet.com) and I noticed that Americana was certified 5x Platinum in December 2005. It used to be 4x...

Anywho...Just felt like posting that...People still buy that cd...crazy.

I need to repurchase mine. I lost the case and it's all scratched up. I'm not surprised that people still buy the CD though, I buy old CDs all the time.

Shame on me? Am I supposed to keep all my Offspring CDs in perfect condition in vacuum sealed plastic bags?

You can't listen to them that way :( ... Unless you unseal the bag :D ... But then they might get scratched :(

yeah, PFFAWG, OP, and HT were all of similar structure and sound...

What's the point of buying CDs anyway if you're not going to listen to them fearing they might get scratched? =\ Other than supporting the band? Just doesn't make sense to me, unless it's an especially rare CD of some sort.

I've liked songs like Pretty Fly because even though they're rather poppy, I like the humor in them.

No, not Hit That. Although it may have been the poppiest song on the CD, I still don't think it sounds similar to OP or Pretty Fly..

That is completely okay, I like "Pretty Fly" too but I prefer the older stuff alot better, but if it was your favorite song, you would get smacked.

I mod this offspring board at a different website (it's a board for a lot of different bands, and I got an offspring one made a long time ago, but not many people really post there anymore), and this one girl who was new posted there and her post was "hey everyone! Does anyone else think "pretty fly for a white guy" is a great song?? I can put that song on loop forever and never get sick of it! I think it's the offspring's best song!" I almost drove a nail through my computer screen. Ughhhhh.

the cd is so big because it includes pretty fly for a white guy, wich everyone seems to like that song for some reason. in my opinion, i really think its a bad song.
