I posted this on the Myspace group last week. No success. Let's try it here...



I was at work and happened to mentioned The Offspring to one of my coworkers, who is in her 30s, so she may have known the Offspring in its prime. First thing she said was "Oooh, 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'". "Cloooose," I replied. Then she told me it's the first thing she thinks of when it comes to the Offspring, because of them singing that song at some concert, and something incoherent, alluding to an Ernie doll being passed around the crowd, or something.

Important Points
1) "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (played by the Offspring),
2) live;
3) Ernie doll.

Is this woman off her gourd, or is she an uber-fan who has seen a video rarity, the likes of which could very well 'splode our heads?

Offspring did cover SLTS live at least once, I have the mp3. Other than that, can't make much sense out of it all.

i think as far as the ernie doll thing... i think she is thinking of the back cover of green days "dookie". The older version has an ernie doll in crowd.

so in conclusion...she has no idea what she is talking about. haha

Yup, the Ernie doll was Billie Joe and the Queer Patrol.

And your co-worker is an idiot.

I think i saw a video of The Offspring covering Smells like Teen Spirit live. I think it was in like 1995 or something, it was on youtube.
