So my little sister just came up to my room to tell me that she was watching the Olympics and they played Hammerhead!! >w<

Is this true, or was she lying to me? =P

I tell you what I did hear during (I think) during mens gymnastics... I heard 'Rise of the fighting spirit' from the Naruto anime.

QFT. Didn't his Mom teach him that if you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all? :rolleyes:

Yeah, and I heard the intro to Hit That under womens beach volleyball (USA - Japan). :)
Watched a little television on my bed before I went zzzznorking, and then I thought I heard the intro to Hit That. After some seconds I realised it was that.

Because it's China as "They suck" and not "It sucks".

The olympics are a farce they should rename it the steroid games. My cousin is competing there for Australia in the men's 1500 m freestyle. GO Craig Stevens! They have chosen some Offspring songs during the swimming

Nice to see that my perfectly fine comment about how it should be 'sucks' and not 'suck' got erased but my comment calling Jojan an idiot didn't. Doesn't make sense to me, but ok.


I heard Hammerhead on a Madden commercial today. I was kinda stoked. But I have to say Phelps deserves to have such an awesome song playing in a montage of him.

Phelps is an arrogant motherfucker and doesn't deserve such an awesome song. Maybe Pretty Fly but not Hammerhead

Phelps arrogant? Apparently you paid no attention to the French today.

I deleted a long derailment parsing out whether or not "suck" or "sucks" in relation to China was grammatically correct. Several users' comments were deleted. Shouldn't be too hard to imagine why.

Besides, on a forum with so many international English as a second or even third or fourth language members, using someone's command or lack thereof of English to rip on them is kind of uncool.

I can understand why it was done. I thought my post was explaining it alright without ripping people's English. But fair enough.

Related/unrelated...I was half watching Varsity Blues and I heard The Offspring from the other room so I rushed out and by the time I got there is was done. I tried looking it up, but I can't seem to find out which song it was. Does anyone know?

Naw, I only responded to the English guy (sorry I don't remember who it was) who was wrong about it. But it's all good.

I think it's funny, in a disappointing way, that Hammerhead's commercial success, even features in Rock Band and tomorrow's US release of Madden '09 has not cascaded into more success for RAFRAG. I mean, it's clear the band is doing what it can to promote the album using what (I'm pretty sure) is their all-time-best-charting single ever. I still can't understand why they're not getting shown more love.

It's like they abandoned it. Why hasn't a second single been announced? If Columbia was really pushing this record then it's pretty sad that this is the best they can do.

Having worked at a label, I think they're waiting for domestic tour dates. With rock bands, it's so so so necessary to have lots of national tour dates to mke it work.

So we won't here anything major until January? Or do you think that they will announce something with the starting of the tour in Japan?

That's true. So why do you think they decided to launch the album with a tour that was predominately overseas?

I can't say. There have been a few dates, but with the kids and their downloading they'd have to release at roughly the same time worldwide or it'd be bad news for sales. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I watch a little TV again on my bed before I went to sleep, and under the beach volleyball match men, USA - Argentina, I heard the Self Esteem intro (lalal, plus a bit of the guitar part). :)

Apparently a friend of Michael Phelps have send him the following text message and I quote:

"Dude, i'm sick of seeing your ugly face on tv all day".

It sums up my mind completely, too.

As for the topic I've heard the self-esteem bit too.
