does any buddy know why the Offspring used an angle on the cover to Rise and Fall Rage and Grace? It's not that I don't like the Idea I just think that it's new and very diffrend

Did you mean angel? ;) Well, it's a good idea thread with discussion of RAFRAG cover. I'm in! So.. let's begin..
Let's say that the angel symbolizes everything good that exists in people...

And even though it represents the good, it's not all powerful. It can be chained down, wounded, perhaps even killed... Anyone else want to continue with this?

It can also work as Gabriel. You all know Gabriel, right? Like karma. Yeah, I love these karma shits. It's like if you do something wrong, like Gabriel, you will definitly feel good cos you feel power and that's rise. But in the end karma and this "life equilibrium" will do their jobs and there you have the fall. Can explain why the angel is tied with those chains and with those arrows/darts on the heart so the rage can be moderated and "Gabriel" can ballance between rage and grace. Definitly that angel represents us.

Something that is good, striving to break free from the chains held by the evil of this world.

yeah... like representing all the people trying to "Rise above it all" (just had to quote) but life (just like whitey:D) is bringing them down

The black angel clearly represents Barack Obama being hold to earth by the media. If it wasn't for these nice people, mister Hussein would lift off to outer space.

I think the angel is trying to rise above it all, but the people on the ground are trying to make the angle fall by pulling the chains.

That's a good thought.

I think it's tottaly related to the name of the album rfrg : all of us rise and then we fall and rise again ....we get angry then we pray .....they are opposite powers in our soul and the chains that hold the angel symbolise this opposition......that's what i believe:)

the person who made the thread is clearly talking about black angles/angels that's why I said they weren't black. people here seem to look for specific types of angles/angels.
