This is an interview from the show in São Paulo. The (dumbass) interviewer asked Noodles about the new album and he mentioned it took them twice as much time to record the CD and they had twice as many songs but only kept the good ones.

What the hell.. how come did we end up with only one CD when we could actually end up with maybe two?

That IS mean. :(

Do you guys think "Pass me by" would be one of those scraps?:mad:

Well, I don't really think they would be bad songs because as he said, they've worked and spent more time than they used to. Do you think they would be bad songs?

I don't.

And yes, worse than having 10 more bad songs is not having/knowing them at all.

I'm pretty sure Dexter mentioned in a couple journal entries that the band demoed around 22-23 songs.

It's common practice for bands to do this, and then pick the best of the lot/ the ones that flow the best together (ie for the cohesive album sound). I'm sure the band will revisit some of them during the next recording session, as that seems to be how Dexter likes to write (ie, cannibalizing parts of older songs).

Also, i'm pretty sure Pass Me By was recorded (or at least demoed) during the Splinter sessions.

So we may get to hear some of them on the next studio album, or whenever the band gets around to releasing a rarities compilation.

Although, i really wouldn't mind getting to hear some of them though.

I bet they're not bad songs they r probaly the ones with solos. you now what offspring r like lol.

and yes pass me by would be a-sweeeet.

We should have a contest and get ppls in the forum to make a pass me by demo, liek we could get us to think of a riff to add to the sample of the song.

sweeet

Those other tracks must have sucked if they put Fix You in before them.

EDIT: Pass Me By? I've never heard of it.

It was a song recorded or demoed during the Splinter Sessions. Dexter has alluded to it in a Journal Entry and in a couple interviews. It has become a somewhat of a White Whale ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moby-Dick#Symbolism ) of the BBS.

i don't think that they would be bad, but they probably wouldn't have worked for this album if they chose to leave them out. the songs all have to fit together properly or the album just won't have the same impact.

lol. besides, what would we do if we were given more than an hours worth of new offspring all at once? In their career, they've released less than 7 hours worth of album music. and not one album has broken 50 minutes. (lol... just trying to be funny)

Oh I see. Well SK8rocka said 'to add to the sample of the song', does anyone have that sample and could you upload it for me?

It's always a process of choosing the best songs that fit the album atmosphere. It's not weird that a half of the recorded/written songs won't end up on a physical copy of a CD.

Oh RLY? I would like to listen to them anyways. A lot of bands end up releasing most of the forgotten songs in other CDs. Alanis for instance released an 11-song CD and for the deluxe version another CD with 5 extra songs and also 2 only on line. So? I think the Offspring would do that too. I would love to have Mission form God for instance in a CD. Even Green Day thata came up with Shenanigans. I hate to compare bands and stuff, but I'm pretty sure fans would love to have those songs.

In one of the dexter journal's, he said the band had recorded like 26 demos, not sure the number. So no surprise :p

No way. I really appreciate their sense of quality control--if it's not representative of what you think is the best you can do, don't put it out. Great bands write horrible songs all the time, so if they say the songs were bad, I can believe it.

Woah Thanx!
How did that not get onto Splinter in one way or another.
That is a really great riff. I could see it making a really good slow song, like Dirty Magic, or maybe even have that as like a 3 minute intro like in Pay The Man then like speed it up at the end and make it a bit heavier.
I hope it makes it on the next album.

Yep, Camila, how the hell you didn't know that? It has already been discussed to death.

It's not like RFRG is a cohesive album. :D
