...Why only the U.S. residents can create a clip for hammerhead?? Is it okay??...I love offspring and I can't create the clip for them .I'm starting to think that they acknowledge only U.S. people...Not everything revolves around USA!!...I'm disappointed...sorry

Pssht, don't bother. This kind of 'discrimination' has always been, and will be.

Its for legal purposes only, every country has different laws regarding contests, and it would be too much effort for the band/their management to have the contest ready for every country on the planet.

Offspringacka, I know this is pretty much off-topic, but I was just wondering, considering your nickname... are you Slavic? Are you from Czech Republic, Slovakia or Poland?
(I'm being just curious) :)

I suppose she's from Slovakia, but I'm not 100% sure.

If all could enter, I would make a video. But don't be so negative. It just good that they create som contests. And it's always a reason for that it's just for the US people.

There's worse things in life to worry about. If you made a REALLY GOOD video and got loads of credit from us guys here, then at least you walk away with something rather than nothing. ;)

The Offspring obviously only care about Americans. It's not like they ever put extra songs like "Huck It" (and others) on the UK release of Co1, or Defy You Acoustic and OC Life on Japanese releases of their albums. That's why they performed "Hammerhead" for the first time in Japan as well as "Half-Truism" for the first time in Australia. Those selfish American pigs....

I'm in America.

The newest Offspring album (RFRG) I've been painstakingly searching for updates for, almost every day, for almost five years is coming out in Europe before it's coming out in America.

I win.

Sure you can, nothing stops you. Just make a video and put it up on youtube.

What you really want to say is: "I don't want to make a video because I like being creative, but if I could win some money then I would do it though."

That really blows! All fans should be able to enter!
I'm pretty sure they'd be pissed of if the fans in Europe ALL downloaded the record and only US Residents bought it!

Shut, ze-fuck up.

Your video would suck anyway.
And like it was said, it's too much of a bee's nest for the band to make it worldwide.

Face.

YOU GUYS. It's very much likely because of all the tax laws and problems with prize money leaving a country, NOT BECAUSE THEY HATE THEIR INTERNATIONAL FANS. This has already been discussed. Please make clips regardless, though! It'd be rad to see what you can do.
