yeah, got any storys

Heres mine:

I spray painted the offspring skull at a skatepark in another town and now ppl wanna bash me for it lol. :D :D :D

Edit:

I gave all my Mates copys of Americana and eventally every album.

One of my friends used to be into Hendrix and stuff and I showed him offspring.

Another friend also liked rap and shit and i showed him offspring and now he's punk.

All of my school books have offspring on em'

I quit the school band because they wouldn't play offspring..

On that note (hehe band humor) If anyone asks me to play guitar, I play offspring.

Look through peeps iPods and make sure they've got atleast the Offspring's essential songs, my whole myspace profile is practically dedicated to the Offspring, and if anyone bags them I just warn them not to step outside because God will smite them.

The Myspace thing, and opening the windows of my car when I'm playing Offspring so people can hear, as well as if a plumber or something comes to the house. I had planned on buying two copies of RAFRAG and just leaving one somewhere, letting serendipity take over. I haven't done it yet, though.

I made my best friend a offspring fan, also another friend. then to my classmate I gave whole discography though she wanted only Hit that and TKAA, then to my sportmate. so I made at least 3 offspring fans. and then I had a speaking about dexter. my brother went with me to their show-and he regreted he stopped listening it. and I cant think of others... well, in my previous school I had their logo on my table:)

I open the windows of my car when i'm playing offspring

I turned lots of my friends into offspring listeners

I gotta talk about some offspring stuff every day to someone (it dosen't really matter who)

when i go to record store i grab all offsrping albums and put them in the most visible spots

one time, I also argued a lot about what is punk/what is not, and i spent the whole time defending offspring (i left the other guy at a loss for words)

I can't stand bands that somehow mistreated or said bad things about offspring

I painted the offspring skull on my lab coat

when i go to concerts or festivals i dress myself as if i was sponsored by them LOL

some dudes used to call me "offspringer"

I let everyone know that Offspring is my favourite band
I try to defend Offspring when someone says sth bad or ungfair about them
I think I had influence on the fact that some people started listening to Offspring
I make some Offspring stuff like pictures or stripes, when I've got a time
I often wear Offspring shirts on the concerts
I always say only positive things about them:p
well, I generally try to be a good fan:D

Well, I may not be a missionery and have people like them. But all of the people I know are aware that I like them so much and for a long time. People who did not know the band, now do. Even my dad.

It's amazing how he can tell Green day from the Offspring.:eek:

I turned a few of my friends into Offspring fans, I put the YGGFK video on my MySpace, I wear my Offspring shirt frequently, I'm always humming their songs...
And then there was the time right after RAFRAG was released where I took all the copies at Wal-Mart and put them over all the Hannah Montanah CDs in the Disney display stand. A clerk was staring right at me and did nothing.

when some people want music i also give them some offspring songs

well i think there are many people who did better things than me

Don't forget that lyrics are in English, it's very unlikely that someone would pay much attention to them. It's moms and kids and birthday parties.

my school, there is some king of radio station, & I guess somehow and unknown cd with some offspring songs managed to reach that stereo :p
I made people listen to Smash because I went to a party with the word "smash" written on my nails and everybody asked me why. The next week, lots of them went talking to me just to tell me how great the album was.

Hehe. Sounds like something I would want to do.

Today, I showed my band director The Cover of 'Next to You' and 'I want to be Sedated' that the Offspring did. Then I explained to him what Dexter said and did to Axl Rose and Guns n' Roses.

XD It was funny.

I listen to in on my cellphone and when any of my friends ask me what are u listening to ? I say offspring and I tell them how awesome they are !

I even made my father like a song of the offspring ! He likes Hit That but atleast he likes one :rolleyes:

I wear my offspring T-Shirt everywhere and invited all my friends to go see them in concert when they came to Argentina, I made a quiz in Facebook about offspring and sent it to all my friends to do the quiz

This. Friends of mine that used to hate on them have come around just because of more passive exposure - like playing them in my room or car and all. Most of the time the people who shun them just aren't well aware of their discography. A friend of mine who used to roll her eyes when I played them texted me a few mornings ago "Fuck! I like the Offspring now."

I felt obliged, however, to ask the other teachers what they though (if we should change it or something) but we came to the conclusion that in case we did we could just as well cut the song out since it wouldn't be the same.

You don't think you are important. You think that everyone will take advantage of you and you don't mind it that way. Friends are constantly telling you that you could be better but you don't want to believe them. Don't be afraid of being who you want to.

I stop whatever I'm doing wherever I am when someone mentions The Offspring or Noodles and start telling them about them and when I'm listening to the radio, I tell everyone when an Offspring song comes on..

I give my friends lots of Offspring songs

I wear my Offspring shirts a lot!!

I always play an Offslring song when someone asks me to play guitar

I draw pictures of Noodles on most of my math homework and I made my math teacher an Offspring CD which we listen to during class sometimes!!

My own exsistance is jus another advertisement of The Offspring :D
Ever since I've been listening to them, pepole just recognize me as "the Offspring guy".
My uncle, who's playing blues, and liking ZZ top, I've gave him Americana, and he very,very,very,very much have likened "Pretty fly" (probably because if that main guitar hard rock riff), and also I had a gig this saturday, and we were playing "pretty fly" in small club in front of 100 pepole. Yeah, they liked that "give it 2 me baby" part.. ;)
