After a few more album or their retirment, the chance r The Offspring r gonna want 2 make a new greatest hit or a second volume 4 it. If they make a 2nd volume, which songs (which have already been recorded) would be on it and would they put some from Ignition or the 1st album on?

It's Ovbious, Once They R Older, They Will B In More Need 4 Money So Greatest Hits Volume Ii Would Be An Easy Way. It Might Also Happen When They If More Popular 2 B Remembered. Then They Can Sell Greatest Hits Again.

hmm...maybe


But I think they would prefer to make another album

anyway, what songs can be included in another Greatest hits?

maybe Beheaded, Dirty Magic , that songs are the most popular from their two first albums.

and...The Meaning of life, She's got issues, you know, the ones that have a video.

F@ BANKZ
02-24-2006, 08:52 AM
Well, hmmmmmm.... hard questions. I guess they may not always be up 2 making a new album, then it would kind of make sence 4 them 2 release greatest hits vol II. They could put songs on like Bad Habit, the ones u said abt the video's, She's got issues, Da Hui mayb not. But the band may well have at least 4 or 5 albums left in them that is enough 2 get most of a second volume. And of course i could say why they need money, and you would be amazed with the answer but that may b going in2 the bands personal lives.

People don't seem to understand the meaning of "GREATEST HITS!"

greatest hits = most popular songs.

Greatest hits are for die hard fans and for people who are just getting into the band.

If you want to hear the old songs, listen to them on the cd, or make up a mix collection yourself.

No greatest=the best of songs much above average and hits= a song that is successful. Greatest hits= Best of songs much above average which have been successful. Am i right? as always.

Are you fuck right.

You just took what i said, changed it slightly and tried to make yourself sound superior. Denied.

"Greatest hits= Best of songs much above average which have been successful."

I've had to read that about 15 times to try and make any sense of it. I bet you got fucked for plagiarism when you were/are in school.

The most popular songs are the most successful ones, hence the reason why they're on the greatest hits.

no songs from the existing albums... they are not hits, they new to be hits... if they will record another 5-6 albums and then decide to produce greatest hits vol. 2 it will have the HITS from their last 5-6 albums (or more or less, depends on them)

and NEVER say they will retire!!!

maybe not a "greatest hits", but they'd probably gonna make a cover album, like they tought before making the Gretest Hits...

Okay lay off me people, i know that the first two albums that never made the charts, so i wasn't so great at putting my question forward, (GET OVER IT!) So IF they WERE to make a POSSIBLE EXTENTION to greatest hits, which songs would be on it that are ready now IF ANY.

p.s. plese feel free to take the piss out of everything a say, do and express in future days to come.

Ok, if The Offspring decided to leave songs like dirty magic and beheaded and lapd off their FIRST Greatest Hits album, why would it make sense that they would put them on their SECOND Greatest Hits album???? ANd those songs werent "hits" even though they are great songs. And they'll never need any money for the rest of their lives dude. From all the records they've sold, theyre set for life.

That's what we call a "best of" album. "best of" is different from "greatest hits". I am redubbing this thread "what would you want if the offspring released a 'BEST OF' album?" Maybe we can answer and stop fighting then :P

If they were to release a "best of" album, I'd want a double disc. I'd want these songs, and in this order.


disc 1:
Kick Him When He's Down
Bad Habit
The Noose
Kill the President
Lightning Rod
Dirty Magic
Million Miles Away
Change the World
Tehran
Americana
Never Gonna Find Me
Come Out Swinging
Crossroads
Amazed

disc 2:
I'll Be Waiting
Have You Ever
Self Esteem
Mota
Smash
Race Against Myself
Something to Believe In
Beheaded
Vultures
Nothing From Something
Living in Chaos
Forever and a Day
End of the Line
Cool to Hate
Pay the Man

Ok look pal-o, when a band releases a greatest hits record, that means their retirement is coming up soon. And chnaces are that they wont have a huge record for this coming album, so no need to release the same stuff twice and add 1 more song. Get it? Got it? Good.

how many bands can you think of that released a greatest hits long before retirement, or even before their peak? only one that released one before their peak that I can think of is red hot chili peppers. the cranberries released one before they were done, but after their peak... that's all I can even think of.

That is exactly what I was thinking. Red hot chili peppers. Are they the ones?
I hope Offspring don't want to retire. If this'd happen I will kill myself. Seriously.

I have had the idea of a 2-disk "best of" album for a while. The first disk could be the "Early Days" from S/T, Ignition, and Smash. The second disk could be "Lattre Days" with songs from Ixnay, Amercana, Co1, Splinter, and their new album. All of the songs could be non-singles. I know, I copied led Zeppelin, but I think a Best of album would fit The Offspring more than a Greatest Hits album.

I don't see a "Best Of" album until after they retire, and I don't really think that they're going to make another Hits compilation, unless they re-do the existing one by adding tracks to it.

Camilamazed

*gasp!* WHY!?!?!?!? :eek:

I see no point in a GHs vol II.

They have already made a CD with all their Hits. What are the other hits they have???

A new one should sound pretty much like the first. Or it would seem that they're re-releasing their work, Which in my opinion would sound pretty much lame of them.

So, If they're lacking of imagination, Go to Hawai, beat the Da Huis and rest for the rest of their lives.

If they still want to do something nice, An Official Live CD or DVD with their best moments since 1989 would be very much welcomed by us, fans.

Oh, I think they were talking about another compilation after maybe another 5 or 6 albums. And yes, I think a live dvd would quite possibly be the greatest thing makind has ever seen. But first, we need a new album because 1) People don't think they have it in them to make new stuff, 2) They need to blow us out of the water with another album as good as Ixnay or Ignition, and 3) They need to show the world that they are, in fact, better than Green Day (and I know they can do it becase they are, in fact, better than Green Day). Plus, I think all of us hardcore fans really want a video for the re-recorded version of Dirty Magic. At least all this is my opinion on things...

Compilations are very boring. Bands Like Queen, Rolling stones , Iron maiden or Judas Priest okay. They've got more then 15 Cds. So, Compilations help people know their old stuff. But Offspring no. They've got a few Cds. GHs and Best Ofs sound pretty much idiotic.

We fans indeed need new stuff. I am still waiting for their best. I know they still are capable of surprising their fans. They kind of did it when they re-recorded DM. Although I didn't like the new version, I have to admit that no one was waiting for it. But making a video on it would sound repetitive. Recording Okay, but working on this song again is too much for me.

I still believe in them and I don't want them to show the world that they're better than green day (This is totally overrated and became an unpleasent subject). I want them to show the world that they're still capable of doing amazing things and specially surprising their fans and getting more and more of them.

They didn't get the success they wanted with Splinter. I still do not uderstand why so. Maybe because they worked with wrong songs. Who knows. It seems that the band got disappointed with it and slowed down.

New stuff would help them a lot. New stuff would blow all of us out of the water.

Drummerguy123
03-12-2006, 12:01 PM
I definately agree. The reason I would like a video for Dirty magic, even though it would be the like the 5th version I have heard of that song, is because I want to see what they feel this song is exactly about and I want others to know that they aren't all about crap sons like Pretty Fly. I just think more people need to know that they are a very serious band that just likes to have fun occasionally. There is not a doubt in my mind that this new album will go platinum and be one of their best because they know what works and what doesn't work with the genereal population and they know what all of us older fans want to hear from them.

Llamas
03-12-2006, 12:55 PM
I like this topic, and I agree with both of you. I can see where you are both coming from. I would not like to see another GH album or a best of album... a live album or a live dvd would be amazing, though. I would like a DM video, but only if they put a TON of effort into the new album FIRST. I do not want them wasting their talent on something that's 14 years old...

I think more that like on or two Greatest Hits or Best Of's by a band is dumb in itself, even if the band has a lot of albums. That's one thing I like about the Offspring a lot is that there's only the one GH, and they waited a good amount of time before even thinking about doing it.

A live Offspring DVD would be neat, but I like the ones they put out now that have a mix of live stuff and skateboarding footage and things, because that type of video release from a band is really rare these days.

I agree completely, but the point of GH collections are to gain new fans. A casual fan who likes the radio hits picks it up because they like most of the songs, then they get inspired to go buy their other albums if they like it enough. Barely ever do bands release GH albums for older fans.

Some bands, though, do load up their greatest hits albums with new stuff. R.E.M.'s 2nd greatest hits collection had an entire disc of b-sides, plus 3 unreleased songs on the first disc.*

*I know I dissed bands that do 2 or more GH albums, but their first one was put out by their first record label without consent.

well it is true that a GH album is not for the fans... but it IS when they put new songs on it... the new songs are to get their hardcore fans to buy the album... not for the casual listener who's never heard their other stuff. Anyway, they are essentially made for the radio-fans, but then why should we care? My point is that I don't care for another GH or anything like it, and I'd rather them put their time into new stuff that's gonna sound great.

I don't mind GH albums when they have a lot of other stuff on it.

PS: I hate u2, but what do you think about their GH method? They released a GH 1980-1990, and then 1990-2000... and both of them contained a b-sides album. I can't stand u2, but in their case, I don't think the GH method was bad.

the offspring don't really DO "lovesongs". I think it's about the only style of music they don't.

People don't seem to understand the meaning of "GREATEST HITS!"

greatest hits = most popular songs.

Greatest hits are for die hard fans and for people who are just getting into the band.

If you want to hear the old songs, listen to them on the cd, or make up a mix collection yourself.

Either way, would you not prefer to have a cd with more tracks on it? Even if they are technically not hits, at least they're trying to put out a good cd.

The offspring won't make another greatest hits. Unless they're around for another 10 or 15 years.

If you mean by lovesongs songs like Spare Me the Details or Denial revisited maybe. But they don't have the style of a lovesong, only the lyrics.

Love song is not a type of music. Any genre of music can have love songs.

You guys seriosuly dont know what a greatest HITS album is. Its not the bands songs that you like that are on the albums. Its the bands HITS. The songs that are played on the radio. The singles.

After a few more album or their retirment, the chance r The Offspring r gonna want 2 make a new greatest hit or a second volume 4 it. If they make a 2nd volume, which songs (which have already been recorded) would be on it and would they put some from Ignition or the 1st album on? speak english that i can unnderstand it too :D

German Andres
03-18-2006, 06:44 AM
If they wanted, The Offspring could make a second Greatest Hits. The first CD has al lot of good songs that sounded a lot in the 1990, like Elders, Beheaded, I`ll be Waiting and Blackball (wich is in Tony Hawk`s Pro Skater 4 soundtrack) :cool:

Yeah but the probem is they wernt HITS.

I think that "Best Of" is a great idea for the futre but wi11 they be ab1e to put ear1y songs on it wi11 they be accepted enough. Ignition sho1 be but im not sure if the first wi11 apart from Beheded.

please stop using the number "1" to represent the letter "L". It's not cool, it's not funny, it's not easier... it just makes your post harder to read. So does "2" instead of "to" and "4" instead of "for". If you have enough time to post on a message board, you have enough time to type out the two-letter-word "to".

I dont know, in time the Offspring might well become famous again, i mean they are definaely good enough, if they do it could be a kind album to mark a major comeback, in an event like tha it could be huge.

In my opinion it'd definitely NOT be good for them to make a 2nd greatest hits, a best of or whatever. They MUST make more new albums. Best of or GH are boring. Just songs that you know...no! New albums...yes!
And I'm sooo glad they are making a new album!

sorry i was talking about a best of album. That would almost definaetly work better than a GH2, admitidly. Besides its not like they would have to work to hard on one
