Why? Why was it the Offspring were forgotten by most people somewhere between Americana and Co1? I'm prety sure Americana is better, but Co1 isn't all that bad. Now The Offspring seem to be the people who did Pretty Fly, Original Prankster maybe and Hit That. And i even find people who claim to have never heard of The Offspring!!!

Enough with my phycological issues, can anyone answer; why did the offspring fall out of fasion.

we all must admit, co1 was pretty good but it just wasn't as impressive or punk as what they had previously done

None of the singles of Americana wich made the bands fame were either, apart from maybe TKAA

people would rather see bands that sound like generic shit with band members that wear more makeup then most girls. its sad but its true.
i hope offspring come back to the top with there next album. but we can only hope....

They aren't marketable. Kids wanna listen to bands that represent the image they're going for, and help them further that image. Offspring doesn't fit in to any kind of image.

That's probably true but again The Offspring were famous before and before that with Smash, why would people have liked them in the first place if their music and image did not appeal? Do you think if they went back to an old style they could be famous again. One from Ignition, Smash or Americana.

C'mon dude, you gotta do some thinking on your own, it obvious.

They're older now(and old usually equals less cool), and times/trends change.

If they went back to thier old style, it might slightly change the way people look at them, but not much.

i agree totally ^. the offspring is that band that i can spread to people and in my school, everybody knows me as the guy that loves the offspring, and i'm sure there are other people that worship the offspring like it's their own religion. if the offspring got huge, few people on this bbs would have that ability again. we'd have a bunch of 12 year old fucktards running around with offspring t-shirts and cds.

What band doesn't want to be huge, especially if they've experienced a decline in overall popularity? You think Green Day didn't fully intend on reclaiming every bit of their former glory with "American Idiot"?

But more specifically about the Offspring--I'm starting to wonder if being the platinum-selling venue-filling stars they were is where their heads/hearts are anymore.

That is pretty much my exact situation and I completely agree with what you said. I wouldn't want The Offspring to be like green day because it is too easy to be a green day fan nowadays. Everywhere you look, you see SOMETHING with green day. I want The offspring to become recognized for their serious music, but I don't want them to be like green day. Luckily, I don't think we have to worry about it.

I don't think so. They have plenty of money already and I think they just want to focus on making good music. At least, that's what I am hoping they are thinking. Dexter is smart. He would have just given up with popularity after the hoorendous failures of their last two albums (even though I love them both). I thin that they are just going to say "fuck it" and do whatever they want. After all, they aren't trendy assholes...

I agree completely. I like them and people at my school think I'm a loser because of it and they try to get me to drop The Offspring for bands like Good Charolette and Simple Plan. I don't want any of that crap. People get angry when bands that they like are insulted. As far as I'm concerned, they can say whatever they want about The Offspring. It doesn't stop The Offspring from ruling.

Americana was utter trash in comparison to everything else, including Conspiracy of One. But to answer the question: well, it's hard to say, but Original Prankster was just a horrible, horrible mistake. I like the song and all, but it's just the most blatant, shameless rip-off of Pretty Fly (For A White Guy). I think even the morons thought "Damn, these guys are just trying way too hard". If anything, that's what sent them down at that point.

Johnny, eat 10,000 dicks for saying Americana sucked! It's still one of my favorite albums! :P

But I agree with what you said about "Original Prankster." I think that's what caused a lot of people to get turned off--we all know the Offspring can do better than writing the same song over again, especially after all they said in interviews etc. about not wanting to do Smash over and over again.

I agree. OP and WYB were obviously songs that they made to sound like Pretty Fly. That's when people stopped taking them seriously, even though Co1 was full of incredible tracks like Dammit, I Changed Again, Million Miles Away, All Along, Living in Chaos, and Conspiracy of One. I would also like to add that Huck it would have been by far the best track on the album if they didn't have to be stupid and not release it i the US.

I don't know, i want the band to be popular again, since as of late all i hear is green day this and green day that, on the other hand its kind of nice when a band is not too popular, as not every 12 year old is a fan, and the band tends to play better venues .

Americana is the best of the post-ixnay albums. the story line is incredibly smart and smooth. co1's storyline is not nearly as interesting or clever, and splinter has no story.

what don't you like about tkaa, JN?

In order for a band to get as huge as green day again, they often have to sacrifice *something*, and I don't want the offspring to do that. I want them to write for us, their true fans. And if they happen to get huge again cause of it, that's fine.

And little miss, how can you say the offspring are as known as green day?? Sure, they are for people ages 15 and up. Most kids younger than that who are into popular music know green day- everyone knows green day- my parents know them, because they're one of THE most famous bands right now. I know people who know offspring, but a lot of people can't name any songs by them, and most kids don't know them. Green day is a much more household name than offspring. There's no way offspring are as known as green day at this point. To people who were in the know of music in 1994 or 1998, yes, the offspring was as well known. At this point, though, green day is bringing in SO many new fans, while the offspring is bringing in few and clinging to their old fans.

JN- I have to agree that TKAA is way overrated. I like the song, but it is by far not a one of their greatest. Have You Ever/Staring at the sun, No Brakes, Americana, End of the Line, and Pay the Man (<3) were fucking genius, though.

Pretty Fly and WDYGAJ are really really REALLY bad as well, although I must say that I have a guilty pleasure of listening to She's Got Issues with a large feeling of delight. :o

But yeah, Americana's story was genius, but Co1's story was just more subtle and requires a bit more thought, which is what I love about The Offspring.

Also, although it didn't have a story, Splinter did have a theme. I'll explain later.

Actually, I'd say they're bringing in few and losing a few, rather than totally clinging to their old. There are so many fewer people here now than there used to be. Whatever you think about how well-known Offspring are right now, you cannot possibly think that they've gone back to underground must-protect-the-precioussssss status.

I don't think PF or WDYGAJ were that bad. I respect both songs for how they play into the album. Maybe the sound of them was not the best, but I liked that they were different, and branching out and trying new things. They didn't KNOW those songs were going to take off.

americana's story is quite subtle- you didn't realize it til I told you :P

No, I know exactly what you mean. I knew that they were popular already. After all, Smash DID sell 11 million copies, 2 million more than American Idiot has sold so far if I'm not mistaken.

I don't consider mainstream to be determined based on sales. bad religion has sold millions of albums, but they are still considered indie. hell, bands can actually completely LEAVE the mainstream by leaving their major label and choosing to go indie. mainstream to me means they are ON the mainstream- they're currently huge, on the radio, on mtv, in the top 40, etc. the offspring were mainstream without a doubt from 1994 till about 2000. Now they still get on the radio, so I can't say they're not mainstream... but they're falling toward that little borderline.

Bad Religion might have sold millions of albums *total*, but I severely doubt that any one of their albums went platinum even once. They are legends among punks, but they still got pretty pissed off that Offspring never asked them to open on the Smash tour.

Once mainstream, always mainstream. Don't whine about people 'accusing you of being a wannabe' and think that's a valid argument for the Offspring not becoming popular again. That is the most selfish and ridiculous thing I've heard all day.

I am in full agreement with the "wannabe" point. If you don't want a band to be famous because you want to be "underground", then you need a life. go dig up bands that have never been famous. otherwise you're no more original than the guy who likes fallout boy.

I'm so punk, the only people that have heard of the band I'm listening too are the band themselves, beat that wannabe!

If you are seriously so worried about what other people think so as to change what you listen to, you need to grow a thicker skin. People are sheep. I don't give a fuck what the people I live with think of my music, and I know they don't like some of it, but to be fair, I don't like some of theirs. It doesn't stop me listening to my music.

That's true. People always tell me that Offspring sucks and I'm the only girl in my class who likes them, and even there are people who told me who are them?? what's the offspring? they get on my nerves, but i don't care!

I know how it feels. Half the kids in my entire school don't know who they are and the other half thinks they suck and they tourment me because I like them. I actually managed to get a few people into them, but eveyone else wants nothing to do with it, they'd rather go on not knowing what good music is. I could care less, though. I like them, and if they have a problem with that, then I don't give a shit.

Really? Are you just assuming this, or have you read it somewhere?

Who did they take on tour for that?

No idea who they took on tour, but Greg Graffin said it in an interview.

I don't blame Offspring for not asking Bad Religion to open--I wouldn't ask my boss's band to open for my band no matter how big we were getting.

Again, the feeling is mutual. Their are a couple of kids from other schools thoguh that claim to have been 'obsessed' with The Offspring for years, when all they know are half the songs of gh and afew unknowen ones they learn just so they can say they listen to the non-hits songs. They annoy me the most since they don't even like the band much and just want to look indervidual. Then again i guess that probably happens with quite afew bands. Still hate them though :mad:

It sonds like i just made that up reading back, but honestly all those girls EVER do is worship Pretty Fly. If they could take an exam on Prety Fly they would do a million miles better than how their doing at school, which is awful, becase all they do in their pathetic education is w....... deep breaths Bankz, deep breaths.

Hey, calm down with Pretty Fly, I just like the song, In fact, I like all their songs (except two or four...)

But... In the University... Im the only who really likes Offspring... and Im kinda newbie... since summer of the last year Im fan...well, in fact since 2004, for a Hits album... not legal XD

And now I remember that time of Pretty Fly... yeah... that was cool... unfortunately, or maybe by fortune??? they aren't not that popular right now, and you can enjoy them without being part of the... general taste

No, I know exactly what you mean. I knew that they were popular already. After all, Smash DID sell 11 million copies, 2 million more than American Idiot has sold so far if I'm not mistaken.
The difference is that Smash has sold 11 million in 12 years if I'm nto mistaken, and AI has sold 9 million in 1 1/2 years.

I don't know for sure, but Smash was an independent release, the songs on it pretty much did everything for themselves, Ameican Idiot i would have thought had a larger budget and stuff, seeing as Green Day has been popular for a while, now but i'm just assuming. Tell me if i'm wrong.

In my country Greatest Hits waas in the number one spot like weeks on selling albums! But still only one or two people in my school like The Offspring. And neither of them would buy the album. So my question is: Where are the people who bought the album and likes the band!? So like, if there are that much Offspring diggers in Finland that they are number one many weeks, shouldnt there be like 10-20 people in my school who likes them??? Nobody in my school even talks about them or anything???? Weird huh....
