Are you a fan of The Offspring, as a band, or their music. What's more important. I know it's a difficult question. But what if they would change style completely? Many of us couldn't imagine The Offspring without Ron, but it's working out really good. Would you still love The Offspring if they changed to (in your opinion) crappy music?

If they went to crappy music, I would know in my heart that I would not like them as much, but I also know my mind would not be able to contrieve an idea of that sort. I voted for I like them because of thier music. But I also love the band as well.

Easy, their music. That's what got me into them, that's why I'm still listening to them and that's why I can't wait for the new album.

I can't imagine liking a band for the people more than for the music. That's just weird.

Well. The music is the more important part. BUT, if they start to wear eyeliner and mascara (like green day, good charlotte) I would kill my self(not literally, even when some of you would like that;) ). I would abandon the band for that, even if their music would still be good. So, I really can't answer this question....but I did anyway (voted music) :p

It's really hard to invent new threads. Everything's been done already.

i voted as i like the band because i mean they have been my fav band since 6th grade and i obviosly love the music but splinter was pretty fucking shitty except for like 3 songs but they are all around great guys and play a great live show and have plenty of other albums i love so i overlook it

I like them for their shoes.

Is that so wrong? Is it a crime to buy a group's CDs because you think their footwear is just plain FUNKY? :(

Is that direct just to Emo music; or does that include Glam bands like Motley Crue and Aerosmith aswell?

I voted that I like them for their music, in 94 I knew more their music than the band and as time goes by well I can like them for both. If dexter and the other members started wearing eyeliner it would piss me off but if they still did good music it wouldnt stop me from listening of course

Unless you are personal friends with the band members how could you possibly like them over the music?

that's what i say, is stupid to prefer them over their music, i don't understand why some people voted that prefer they as a band

I like em both. In my opinon you gotta like the members and the music of the band. You could have a great movie, but if the actors a dick, then it ruins the movie

Sorta like Tom Cruise

Come on...If your a big enough fan of them you can tell if there nice or not. I have seen plenty things on them. They all seem like great guys. Its hilarious when you see Dex laughing cause hes the man.

that's the point.. they SEEM like great guys. I thought the members of static x seemed like awesome guys until one of them went to jail for kidnapping and raping young girls. I'm not saying the offspring would do anything like that, but I'm saying that what someone you don't know SEEMS can easily be very wrong.

I have to give you that.:D . Very good point. I sometimes think about that. I was like what would it be like if the like Noodles killed someone. Like outta my years of being a loyal fan I have heard that the band treats there fans well. Some Examples
1.Pumpkin Carvings
2.Backstage
3.Talking to members before show
4.Vans warped tour signing
Stuff like that makes them different. But on your point, that is correct. You never know what could happen. But theyd never let us down. They been friends since cross country practice, dont think things would change now:)

Of course they seem like nice guys but that doesn't mean it's so. They don't want the media and there fans to think they are cunts.

Also, I could personally know the members of a band and hate there guts but still enjoy therem usic.

Wow I give you props then. I saw the video (and heard the story) about Tom Cruise getting squirt with the microphone water gun during a prank interview, he threatened to press charges and he was a dick. After that I couldnt watch any of his movies.

Yea they could be acting but if you go on youtube and watch some of there Rare shit you can see some of there true sides and it doesnt look that bad.

They definetly seem like good guys and I bet they are but that's not why I like them. Hell, I could care less how they act if they make good music.

Yea I get what you mean. I totally understand. It's just a bands a band, there personality outside the band is what makes them favorites.

Llamas

Yes, but you didn't say "hey! the offspring seems like a group of really cool guys! I like them!" and then later decide the music is good. You like them for the music before you bother to check out their personalities.

i liked their music before i know their personalities, and i really don't care their personalities if they make good music, i listen to the offspring because i like the music they make, no because they seem like great guys, i don't want they as friends, i just want to listen their music

I remember when i was dead into my first album and i'd never heard of the offspring or heard an interview, i went on google video and watched an interview and before it thinking: it doesn't matter who they are or what they look like they're kick ass. So happend they were ace people too. But i guess because of that it's music for me

Seriously, Dont you like a band because you like the music? What other reasons are there why you like a band. SO tha answer is easy, As long as Offspring does great music i will love them, Of course i wouldnt love them anymore if they would start playing country or something else, I would though still love the old stuff, Like i do with Metallica, I like the old stuff theyve done but i truly hate their latest album. I like all Offsprings albums so far though.

Even their new music does suck, I'd still listen to their old music. I'm the same way with a lot of bands.

i voted the band, but i suppose its the music that got me interested in them first. but i still immensely like the music too.
but sometimes i think, what if a band i hate, like simple plan, sang a good song by the offspring, like the kids arnt alright, instead of the offspring having at as song. would i still hate the song simply because its by simple plan, or would i like the song cos its good? :confused:
