Don't mean to look like I'm some post whore, cause honestly I'm not. ;) :D Just curious about something. Do you remember what the first Offspring song is that you heard? And how long have you been a fan?

Pretty Fly For A White Guy on the radio 10 years ago. So yeah.. a fan for 10 years. I think holy shit, I'm 33 and seems really strange how they have so many very young fans. God damn I'm old. :o

i do remember. i got into the offspring because of a friend of mine who was older than me and owned the americana album as soon as it came out, so everyday when we went to school he used to put the cd on the stereo and we would listen to it. i became quite addicted to pretty fly and tkaa and i have been an fan since then. so yeah, i have been an fan for 10 years now, and oh, i'm only 18 now xD.

That's because they make music for teenagers!!!

A friend of mine owned the Americana album, one day he played Why dont you get a job on the stereo and I loved it.. then I went to a record store and it was the first album I bought in my life! yeah that was 10 years ago or something, right when it came out.

God, I don't even know. I think it was either Come out and Play or Self Esteem, my dad used to listen to the radio, and he'd blast it when those came on.

First album was both Americana and Smash, went to borders and grabbed them. My sister was not happy on the ride home. My speakers were pushed to the limit.

Why don't you get a job?
Heard it ten years ago.
I liked it but wasn't a fan at all.
Now I am, since I heard smash in its entirety a year ago.
I'm currently 17.

From my best friend in school when I was 14. She had Americana on and the song Americana was playing. I was hooked on "Well fuck you!". Said friend made me copies of Ignition and Ixnay on tape(!!), and I've been a fan ever since, and I've also bought my own copies on CD since then too! I have to admit that I did lose interest with CO1 and Splinter, although Splinter does have a couple of great songs, but yeah, RAFRAG reminded me of why I love these guys so much!

I don't really remember the 1st song, but I think it was something from Ixnay....Man it's so long ago.

But I can remember when I got my first album. It was Americana and I was amazed!!! That was one of the best moments of my life

I'm a huge fan since I was 6, now I'm 17 so it's 11 years of listening to THE OFFSPRING!
