Here's the content of the DVD for the Japanese Special Edition of RAFRAG:
1) Hammerhead (Tour Performance Video)
2) Recording In Maui
3) Americana (1999 Home Video)

And whiners should read this topic (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32318).

The Hammerhead tour performance is probably from Summersonic or Summersonic After. But I'm mostly looking forward to the Recording in Maui thing.

Why the heck are just the japenese getting the extra stuff?

Story of the year also released three exclusive tracks just for the japenese!

Now two of my favourite bands care more about the japs, makes me pretty damn dissapointed! :(

:( Read the topic for whiners I linked to before.

Short version: To get your album and music promoted there etc, you need the support of the Japanese labels. But since Jap retailers can import and sell whatever they want they usually opt for cheaper US records. Thus to get Japanese people to choose for the Japanese version which are more expensive and to actually get your music promoted and played, they have to give bonus stuff. That's why most bands give the Japs a lot of bonus crap.

Anyway, it's 2008. You can always get it, legal or illegal. And who knows they might put it up on youtube too after a while.

Jesus Saves. Thanks for the info.

PS-- "Jap" is an offensive term so you might want to avoid using it.

Japan sites also seem to be the first one who have the album samples... So better keep checking that site! :)

Yeah some Japanese American imigrants consider it to be (more nationalist, like most immigrants & US history), actual Japanese people don't.

I just use it because it's shorter and has no negative conotation where I'm from, like Paki for Pakistani, or Dumb for Belgian. But I'll watch it for next time.

I've preordered the CD from Japan, I want the bonus stuff ^_^

I recommend this website:
www.cdjapan.co.jp

They've always been good to me, and it's 100% in English.

yesasia.com is good too

http://global.yesasia.com/en/PrdDept.aspx/code-j/section-music/pid-1005020493/

US$26.99 [~€17.33] incl free delivery which prolly makes it cheaper than what people have to pay in some European countries ;). They don't ship to most of Europe though.

The cheapest I've seen RAFRAG in Europe is at play.com where it costs 12.49 euros including free shipping.

if you read it says "Americana(1999 home video)" so i wouldnt bet on it to be a performance of americana, i think its the home video from 1999 called "americana"

The DVD extras + O.C. Life will be the only 'leaks' that I'll download before June 17th. Pretty cool stuff. It'd be really neat to see the recording in Maui.

It is probably this, but extended. It most likely will have various songs, that aren't just a 30 second clip.

It's too bad Finland is still a 3rd world country... you could've gone there by train or something.

I can vouch for YesAsia, I order all of my Asian music from there, great site.

Japanese CD's/DVD's are soooo pricy, though.

Seeing as how I already own Americana VHS (hardcore old skool!111) I think I'll be content with my lame Euro version.

Would cost him like 3 Japanese RAFRAG's to get here. Our railway system is pricy as fuck. :[

& Yeah, hopefully I'll do the representin'. *fingers crossed*

But Vera's probably got an opportunity to hear it now, one of the first ones. :)
