Wouldn't take too long I guess. Just 2 new songs (if you concider a cover and a remake to be a new song) and I guess they'll have to do some computer editting to the other songs. Isn't that much work is it?

True, first info was that it was supposed to be out this november.

Oh well, they really didn't promote Splinter that much either and its exact release date came also pretty late, so who knows. I hope it comes out as soon as possible and then head off for a new tour. :)

I think it will be out round march/april. The offspring have been saying stuff about it for example in the Rolling Stone. So there would be 1 new song, 1 cover and a re-make of Dirty Magic. And there would come a new studio album too. But we may have to waith a bit longer for that one.

RobinoZombie
10-21-2004, 07:26 AM
they do have Ring of Fire & 2 more songs and prob, some other unreleased stuff
Would be neat with a FULL!!! dvd of stuff all the videos and a concert and like 2 hours of backstage material, like Dropkick murphys, that one kicks ass

I dont like the fact that they arent broken up yet, and they are making a GH, I think they should break up, after a release of the greatest hits. Let the new album come first, ya know?

But if they do a GH right, then I dont think its a waste.

I thing it's bad idea that Offspring gonna relased 'greatest hits' CD... CD will be propably full of comercial crap like 'pretty fly', 'want you bad'...
what with god songs? ha? If this is greatest hits there should be songs like:
1.Forever and a day
2.Get it right
3.Amazed
(...)
60.End of the line

Am I right?
It seems Offspring don't even renember this beautiful songs...

A greatest hits is seen as a collection of singles the band has released over time. As for the new song and reworking, it's pretty much accepted these days that you have to have something extra, otherwise people are not going to bother with it.
As for the band breaking up, I somehow very much doubt that. A greatest hits would give them a fair bit of coverage, plus boost sales of both old a new albums. Basically it keeps them on the radar.

GunForHire
10-21-2004, 10:19 AM
Yea, same here. I want at least one brand new original album, of a decent length this time too. If they make it to 10 albums, including the Greatest Hits, I'd be very happy.

I hate greatest hits albums, but if Offspring are really going to release one I'd buy it anyway, even without new songs on it. Just 'cause it's by Offspring (very poor, I know)

Nope but my guess is

1.Come Out And Play
2.Self Esteem
3.Gotta Get Away
4.All I Want
5.Gone Away
6.The Meaning Of Life
7.I Choose
8.Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)
9.Why Don't You Get A Job?
10.The Kid's Arent Alright
11.She's Got Issues
12.Original Prankster
13.Want You Bad
14.Million Miles Away
15.Defy You
16.Hit That
17. (Can't Get My Head Around You
18.Dirty Magic (Reworked)
19.Police Cover
20.New Song

... no songs from Ignition or Self-Titled.

I think greatest hits cds suck and I'm definately not going to buy it. Why buy the same songs you already have again? Besides, I'd rather burn a cd with my own favorite Offspring songs on it than buy a cd with only the hits.

samr

The greatest Hits should come in a Box set or a really big CD case, with like 2 or 3 cd's, to include the following:

The greatest Hits CD: Whatever the tracklist is, plus the new song, DM Remake, and Police Cover.

A CD with All of their music videos

A CD with Live performances.

It would be like 30 dollars, but I'd buy it.

IMO The greatest Hits should come after the offspring are done with making albums.

Tijs
10-22-2004, 07:13 AM
A CD with All of their music videos

A CD with Live performances.
Why not just 1 DVD with both? Would be cheaper and better quality.

Indeed. Some neat band stuff. I mean, really have a closer look to how the band members actually are in their spare time. Just to see them go to the store to buy the everyday groceries and stuff. In a way that's fucking awesome to see.

I think they should include live favourites such as 'Bad Habit' and 'Staring at the sun'. Thats what Green Day did on their 'International Superhits' cd

I hope they put all the videos and stuff on a DVD and have all the music on CD's. Or on CD and DVD. If it's all on one or two DVDs then you won't be able to play it in a CD player.

As for buying this, I'll definitely get it. I'm hoping for a big box thingy, but I think the idea of having a complete discography might be kind of stupid. What about all the people who already have all/some of the albums? Then they'd be paying more for something they already have, so I can't see that happening.

A t-shirt or something with it would be cool too though.

GunForHire
10-25-2004, 06:25 PM
Oh and while I'm here - for those saying that this greatest hits will be their last CD, what about this - Placebo (pretty crap British band, IMO at least) are releaseing a greatest hits very soon and they've only been about for 8 years, yet some of you are complaining about this coming out after 20? It was going to happen sooner or later, virtually all bands put out a greatest hits at some point.

The_Eggman
10-25-2004, 06:37 PM
i don't think they'll break up. offspring-fans intuition. and as for the greatest hits record, anythings good! i'd buy it even if there wasn't gonna be a new song on it.

Weareone
10-25-2004, 06:52 PM
I think this will be cool but it wont really be a "greatest hits" cd without songs off of the self titled and ignition. Also I like the song huck it and dont have it on cd so I hope it is on there. And live concert footage would be amazing.

well, songs from ignition and self titled weren't exactly hits. they weren't played on the radio. so why would they go on the new cd? (unless the band decided to take their favorite tracks off of those cds just so that the 'greatest hits' cd better represents their full career.)

the cd isn't a rarities one either, so why would huck it be on there? it certainly wasn't a "hit."

dirty_magic
10-26-2004, 12:50 PM
they need to include old classic songs like lapd, session, dirty magic, no hero etc to show where they started and how they have developed. Their old songs are mainly their best songs and so should be included in any greatest hits, however any release by them is very welcome!

hopefully defy you will be on it, thats a great song.

They ought to do a RHCP stlylee 'live at Hyde Park'

Of course, it wouldnt be at Hyde Park chances are, but a live album/ DVD would kick ass.

As for greatest hit's, lets hope it doesnt go the way of the Axl rose band - that was a dire GH album

What they need to do is make a dvd like blink 182 does. A dvd full of them just messing around, performing, and hanging out kinda stuff. not like americana and huck it with a bunch of their friends and stunt men. That's so lame. its cool the first time but it gets old fast.

I'd like to see a b-sides/ non album tracks album. Like Green Day did with Shenanigans.

They'll deffinitely release the best of with DVD, cuz that's how things go these days. They're even doing an 80s song (police) which seems to be the requirement of all best ofs (Marilyn Manson, Korn). Everyone should do it, because hardcoreing up a cheezy 80s song is hilarious.

The b-sides should come later. It sorta pisses me off when a band releases a b-sides album, and then have another albums worth of b-sides when they make their next record *cough*green day*cough*... because you know the offspring will have more b-sides with their new record.

Here's what they should have on it:

DUI
I Got A Right
Smash It Up
Huck It
80 Times
One Hundred Punks
Sin City
Autonomy
52 Girls

and any more they have

Bazza
11-05-2004, 02:21 AM

That and album artwork.

*I hate iPods... they are destroying the album. I like albums too much*
