I think most of us search for Offspring items on eBay every once in a while. This time I noticed a few odd items.

First, Hit That single. Nothing odd, except it's artwork, I haven't seen it before.

I myself have 2 different Hit That singles, and one looks a lot like it but not the same.

And I seem to recall there's one of the same glassy family standing in front of a house which reminds me of Bad Religion's album Suffer artwork. Although I could be imagining that.


Second, I came across a 7" promo LP (http://cgi.ebay.com/OFFSPRING-SEAL-Malaysia-promo-7-single_W0QQitemZ4877295180QQcategoryZ306QQtcZphoto QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) containing two tracks. 'Kiss From A Rose' by 'Seal', and 'Gonna Get Away' by 'Offspring'. So I figured the seller must've spelled it wrong, but it says 'Gonna Get Away' on the 7" inch aswell. I think it must be a promo for that Batman movie, cause I seem to recall Offspring did a track for it (but I think that was 'Smash it Up') and 'Kiss From A Rose' was in it aswell.

That's all I came across, for now. Anyone else seen anything weird?

I knew of the alternate Hit That art, but for an odd reason. I bought the normal Hit That single (with Da Hui), but when I ripped it to my computer, the artwork was this alternate one. Also, the songs had different file names, like TKKA BBC and Long Way Home, even though they played Da Hui and the USC Hit That. Very odd. :confused:

My guess, esp. since it's from Malaysia, that it's a bootleg for jukeboxes. It was indeed "Smash it Up" that was in the Batman movie with the Seal song, so it can't be for that.

The ice family is the same, its just the background. And the one on the hillsides (whatever you wanna call them) is smaller. So my guess is someone just put on a different background and is selling it as the single?

The "Hit That" with the alternate background isn't anything new, its just a different form of the single with more songs. I have it, and I think it has 5 tracks on it, including TKAA BBC radio session, Long Way Home live, Hit That, Hit That USC Marching Band, and I think the video for Hit That. The pic on the front is the same glass family as on the other single, but it has a different background.
(and its official, too)

TKAA BBC Radio session is definately worth a listen, ill upload it if you want.


I haven't seen the 7" vinyl before, though.

Isn't that the XP wallpaper in the background on that single? :eek:

Oh yeah, the TKAA BBC Radio 1 Session is also known as the Lounge Version, which you may already have.

here are some better pictures of the single:

But as we can see on the bigger image posted by freek, it has trees behind it.

Hey, this isn't related to this subject, but is $150 a good price for the S/T vinyl?

I know I have seen the Baghdad EP on eBay before, and that was only $80.

No, I've seen it below 100 many times.

Also, I saw that hills version of Hit That at my local Best Buy as an import, but it was $11 as an import, so I decided not to get it.

I actually bought Baghdad from him. He tried to sell me S/T aswell, but that's a bit more than I want to spend on it.

What would you guys consider a reasonable price for it? I want one really badly and I am willing to pay a lot.

Also, what would you guys pay for Baghdad and I'll Be Waiting/Blackball?
