Hey people, I was thinking what songs, from RFRG, will became singles... I think that You're Gonna Go Far, Kid will be the next single (after hammerhead, of course), it's a nice music and have a great theme for a videoclip... After YAGGFK, I think that should be "Kristy..." and "Stuff Is Messed Up", and you?

Well, I Kno this was mentioned already, but i think Half truism should at least be up for consideration.

Yes.


After YAGGFK, I think that should be "Kristy..."
Yes.


and "Stuff Is Messed Up", and you?

No. It will loose its charm when edited.

YGGFK is already a mini hit and it just first came out

Id also love to see Kristy and Stuff is Messed Up, I dont know how they edit songs in ur town but here in OC on KROQ when they edit the cussing they just blur/distort it and it still sounds great.

or my 2nd picks would be half-truism and Alot Like Me.

Based on what the band has done in the past, I believe this album at the very most will reach 5 singles. They've only done 4 singles maximum for an album, but who knows what they'll do this time around. Here's 5 that I would choose.

1) Hammerhead [Released] - To let us fans know that The Offspring are back. An ambitious first single choice for me, but it's powerful and also very meaningful. Gotta love this song.

2) You're Gonna Go Far, Kid - A catchy sing along that everyone will know by its "dance fucker dance" part. A unique sound which I believe could become quite a summer hit.

3) Kristy, Are You Doing Okay? - After hearing this, it'll make a lot of people ask "Is this really The Offspring?" Probably the most radio-friendly song, that will be picked up by not only rock radio stations. Appealing to many, this will make the record sell.

4) Half-Truism - It'd really be a letdown if this wasn't released as a single. Such a beautiful song that needs to be heard.

5) A Lot Like Me - The last hurrah for Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, displaying the band's new style and powerful sound. Definitely one of the better tracks on the album, which deserves popularity. It'd make a sweet music video too.

There's many songs on RAFRAG that could potentially make singles, but these are my top five that I think would do great.

Stuff is Messed Up, and they'll use the lyrics "Stuff is messed up" in place of the actual ones.

They should make a video for each one of them, like Serj Tankian did.

OffspringKid
06-24-2008, 06:48 AM
definitly You're gonna go far kid, and then i think Rise And Fall

I don't think it would be good Rise and Fall turned into single, because it's very similar to the American Idiot, from Green Day (although it doesn't have anything against the music...)

well, stuff is messed up should be a single, as should kristy and Trust in you and YGGFK and Half-Truism.

Nothingtown, fix you, a lot like me and Rock bottom would also be good as singles...

...so basically all accept rise and fall and takes me nowhere

I might be the only one who doesn't want Kristy to be a single. I have my motives.
I guess Half truism could be the next one. Or Stuff is messed up. but then it would loose its power.

Well, the stupid thing is that I like Kristy & just can't stand it. Did I make any sense? :D

I'm partially with ya, in that I also can't stand it. I don't like it, though.

It wouldn't suprise me if a lot of the songs hit it off on the Radio. But you posted the ones that are the most likely to do so..

A Lot Like Me, I'd love to hear that one on the Radio along with your list.

Redjie
06-25-2008, 03:48 PM
Pata: Well you could say "there's a thin line between love and hate". ahah.
But believe me, I will never stand that song even though I like the way it goes & the way dex sings.

& we are going a little off topic aren't we? I don't like off topicsbt I'm always making them. Shame on me.

Pata
06-25-2008, 03:56 PM
we are off topic people :eek:

Come out and smash'em up!
06-25-2008, 06:54 PM
4 singles max.... then it goes too commercial, even though four is also really commercial. 1.Hammerhead. 2.kid dance fucker dance 3.half-truism 4.A lot like me/Trust in you

FWIW, I heard YGGFK on the radio today, so that settles the whole "what should be the second single" debate.

i hope this album has 4 singles. They could use a little mainstream success.

Thomas
06-25-2008, 11:54 PM
Ixnay is considered to be one of their least successful albums and we still go 4 singles out of that one...

And I heard YGGF,K on the radio as well.

It's hard to choose 4 single songs on 12 hits cd!:)
But I'll choose:

01 - Hammerhead
02 - You're Gonna Go Far, Kid
03 - Kristy, Are You Doing Okay?
04 - A Lot Like Me

I think nothingtown
then half truism
but definately not a lot like me it is the worst song on the album (i'm not saying it sucks i'm just saying its the worst on the album)

Marc_Nitschke
07-04-2008, 02:39 PM
WELL, the problem is, how many singles do they make...
when i look at the sales i'm (sadly) thinking two, maybe three...

first single is picked (hammerhead) so is the second (YGGFK)...

thats kinda bad...

if i where them i would have gone with:

1st: half-truism
2nd: kristy
3rd: YGGfk
4th: trust in you/ stuff is messed up

nothing against hammerhead i love this song, but it is a great song for "hardcore" offspringfans, and THAT are the people you DON`T have to make singles fpor, cause they listen to the whole album befpore judging....

BUT: they started wirh hamerhead plus YGGFK, so the next would be kristy and Half-truism for me....:D

IF they make foue singles...

well...rock bands seem to cut short on singles, expessialy singles with videos...so let hope they make a second one, no matter to which single:D

wish them luck...they deserve it

Now, I'm convinced that it should be like that. Stuff Is Messed Up as the 5th single would be great.

Trust In You would be AWESOME. ^^
Half-Truism, too.

Rooster

Hammerhead and You're Gonna Go Far, Kid already are (or at least the sticker on the album case is giving us a hint that YGGFK is gonna be the second), so my wishes go like this:

Half-Truism (possible, but i'm not sure if this will become a single)
Trust In You (i don't think that's likely)
Stuff Is Messed Up (although the edited version would suck, imagine "shit is fucked up" line - **** is ****** up :()
A Lot Like Me (this one is very likely, i think)
