View Full Version : We want Lightning Rod / Play Lightning Rod, please!

Here's an idea I came up with. It is sort of a campaign. The main idea is to have The Offspring play Lightning Rod again and make it an ordinary song in the set-lists.
We all know that they've already played this song twice, they played it in Summer Sonic 2007 and in the Soundwave Festival 2008. However, unfortunately there are no recordings of it online.
We all know that Lightning Rod is a great song and most of the people here think that this song is the best Splinter's song.
At the beginning we're thinking of people sending us pictures with them holding a sign saying "Play Lightning Rod, please" or "We Want Lightning Rod".
But, if you guys want, you may take a sign to a concert (which is what I will do if The Offspring comes to Brazil) or so. You may record a video or so... Just be creative!
But, everyone who wants to help has to send us picture to be posted on the site.
For more informations: www.theoffspringsite.com/lightningrod

WE WANT LIGHTNING ROD (http://www.theoffspringsite.com/lightningrod)
PLAY LIGHTNING ROD, PLEASE (http://www.theoffspringsite.com/lightningrod)

I'd like to thank Camilamazedfor helping me a lot with this idea!! Thank you

Nice idea and i hope it works. Sadly though, i doubt they're not going to play it too often, since they didn't get the best reaction from the crowd the couple times they have. I'd be really grateful if they played it just one more time, so that someone could record it.

Heh, not a bad idea. Would be cool if they actually played it. But, I want other songs too. I love Race Against Myself for example, would be awesome if they played that. But I doubt it. Anyway, sure I can join this campaign. ^^

All of us want different songs to be played, but LR was played so chances are they can play it again. So if it really works and we have the band play it, we can of course do such petitions for other songs.

It is just a start.

Good idea.
I mean, there was a petition some months ago for them to play Beheaded at the show in France, and they really did :) So not impossible.

Lightning Rod, well, I wouldn't be against them playing it but not too desperate to hear it. Win-win.

Should we all Euro people who's going to the Berlin concert start some petition too? :D Some realistic rarely played song. You know, if it's one of the only European tour dates this year a lot of die hard fans all over the Europe will come and they recognize the older songs for sure.

I have to agree. If they hadn't played it in the only European club-show in years then it might aswell have been considered retired.

1) Go to Australia.
2) Ask every people in the country did you go to Soundwave.
3) If yes, ask if they went to see The Offspring.
4) If yes, ask if they did a have camera / cell-phone that records.
5) If yes, ask if they happened to film specifically the song called Lightning Rod.

That's the only option. :( Someone has it, but it's impossible to find out unless the person puts it on Youtube or something like that.

PS. I'm ready to sponsor iGustavo this trip because his loyalty towards this song has been admirable.

Spare Me The Details
Burn It Up
Lightning Rod

These were the options. They are getting ready to play it. Everyone expect Burn It Up and Lightning Rod has been played.

Sorry it took me so much time to post your picture, Outerspaceman21... I thought I'd put it on the website before but apparently I had not.

Now it's online, though!

Just thought that now, more than ever, it'd be cool to get some new pics! ;)
And it's also good to have the thread up again in case Dexter or someone else from the band checks out the boards before the concert in Zagreb.

The campaign is officially over.

We've finally reached our goal, as most of you know, Lightning Rod was played last night in Zagreb, there already is a video of it on YouTube, you can check it out by clicking here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QTa5qW5H_4).
I'd like to thank everyone of you who believed in the campaign, I'd also like to thank those who have sent their pictures, and those who have told the band about the campaign. I really, really, really appreciate all your effort.
I'd also like to thank the band for being so kind and playing the song yesterday, you guys are the best! And, of course, I'd like to thank Oxygene for getting the word to them. Thank you very much, man! :)

And I'd like to ask the mods to close the thread now, since we've finally gotten what we wanted.

Don't thank me.. thank the band for being so fucking awesome they honored this request of ours.

I think we've all picked our favorite band very wisely :)

Let this thread sink where it may! =)

If they could just teach my dog how to feeeeeeel! :D:D

Damn, this was good stuff. Someone had mentioned that it seemed like people didn't know the song when they started playing it, but that's clearly not true! It sounds great.

This is great they played it for you guys, I'm not much of a fan of the song though so I was never really active in this campaign, but congrats!

Holy crap, this campaign to get LR played has been running for what seems like as long as I've been a member here. Glad you guys finally got to hear it - and mega respect to the band for playing it as well!

I was at an Offspring club show exactly a year ago, and I'm pretty sure they played Kick Him there...

Yeah, right...you. Sorry Oxy, but we aren't you. At least most of us.

But they can't play these songs everywhere.. there are 10 people that want to hear it and 10 000 who want to hear other songs. Clubs are the right venue. If it's important enough for you you should go see them at venues. They have cheap tickets, presale, and they play in big cities where low fare airlines fly to. When I went to the trabendo the first time, it cost 380 Euros, for the two of us. Round trip flights, 3nights 4 days in a hotel room in Paris. That's less than 200 euros a person. It's not a stellar amount of money, if you look at how much you waste on alcohol cigarettes parties etc etc over the course of a year. How much you have to work to earn that kind of money.

For 99% of us, it's all about applyinig yourself, and making the decision and commitment, and you are there.

Oxy, travelling to club shows isn't possible for many of us, including myself. But that's really besides the point. People are going to want to hear "Kick Him..." for a long time. The fact that they had played "Lightning Rod" at shows didn't stop people from believing that they'd never played it live, after all :). But the idea of trying to figure out elections, etc for the next song to ask the band to play seems really awkward right now. The band did an awesome thing! Let's not respond to that awesome thing by begging for more.

You keep responding to me in a way where it implies that that's not what I'm saying.. I suggested they battle out a reasonable song and if we can come up with something than they should start a campaign next year, and if that amounts to something like this one (which took a year) then we should think of asking the band to pay attention....

And travelling to club shows isn't possible for you? They played one at the CBGBs.

Yes, but everyone else is pushing for...oh, fuhgetaboutit.

Is it a bad time to ressurect this cause? The fans from Brazil will garantee a good crowd response if the guys play Lightning Rod again but round here this time! (Belo Horizonte, florianopolis, rio grande do sul)!!!!!! This song is amazing!!!! Actually, i do want them to start the show wt the bass line from bad habit too, but, oh well, we cant have it all. Lightning Rod would rock enough!!! XoD
