^According to this site, it's #46 in radio play right now. So we can probably expect it to crack the top 50 when the Billboard Charts are updated tomorrow (Thursday). Unfortunately, it looks like YGGFK will be dethroned this week after 10 weeks at number 1. But that's okay, Kristy can replace it;).

I'd rather see Stuff Is Messed Up as the single next. Half-Truism is pretty much a typical Offspring song, it's not going to make them any new fans. Plus it's already got that "first song on the album" fame.

I hope Kristy would be played in our radios. I think it is song which you can listen to again and again so it won`t bother people and maybe it will attract some of them to listen to whole RAFRAG. If they just release Stuff is messed up as radio single it won`t be played anyway in our major radios.

Kristy is one of the best Offspring songs ever in my opinion. I don't know why but I like songs like Denial, Revisited or Spare Me the Details...

that`s exactly my point. it is not punk so it would be played-maybe, and if someone would like it, he/she then might check more songs and albums and "fall in love" with Offspring.

Kristy will do for Offspring, same that Boulevard of broken dreams did for Green Day in Europe. These type of songs are what European main radios like.

maplejet
12-05-2008, 06:47 AM
I have a bad feeling it will get overplayed on adult contemporary stations...normally either adult contemporary or top 40 stations can overplay songs and lead to albums going platinum. But at the same time, it can make the band simply known for that song rather than the album.

bighead384
12-05-2008, 10:06 AM
Hammerhead and YGGFK are two of the punkest songs The Offspring has released as singles in a while, and they were both hugely successful. Kristy is like the complete opposite, though. I wonder how kids today who don't know much about The Offspring perceive them. Do younger kids who are into punk feel like Offspring is a legitimate punk rock band worth checking out(at least their earlier stuff)?

Also, If Kristy appeals to older fans, that's a good thing, because the older people buy the albums. Younger people hear a good song and just download/pirate the individual song.

Llamas

When Pretty Fly and WDYGAJ came out, those didn't seem like Offspring songs, either. I don't think Kristy is any more 'out there' than those two songs were when they were released. There's nothing wrong with releasing something that sounds different. Actually, Kristy isn't that much terribly different from the likes of Spare Me the Details.

Anyway, I think it'd be great if Kristy had an effect similar to Boulevard did for Green Day, not to make the comparisons... but Boulevard was their first truly ballady song to get released (good riddance was kinda, but not quite), and it did so well.

Fix You is cheesy at some places. Kristy has Why Don't You Get a Job quality.

I hope it will do even better than Kid and we will get the video as a Christmas gift.

I agree with everything here. When i first listened to RAFRAG, Spare Me The Details immediately came to mind when i heard Kristy. I'm pretty confident that it will blow up; it just screams "single".

They won't release Fix You.

And WDYGAJ and Spare me the details are catchy, funny in a way, and gives every one an excuse to yell out about how much they hate their girlfriends and boyfriends.
Kristy isn't a fun song in my opinion, and the meaning behind it is child abuse?
It cant see groups of people singing the chorus having fun when it comes on the radio.
i dont think it will be recieved anywhere near as well as the other two songs.
I hope for the band's sake that is takes off and gets really far, buti doubt it will happen.

No one besides us hardcore fans know what it is actually about. Some insightful people will figure it out, but I'll bet that the lyrics that everyone will remember will be:

Don't waste your whole life trying
To get back what was taken away

BB Modern Rock lists the top 40 songs, not the top 50;)
You don't need to wait till thursday or even later to see the modern rock chart...The chart is updated every week, on Wednesdays, at:

http://www.radioandrecords.com/Formats/Charts/Alt_Chart.asp on

As of today on mediabase alternative:

50 38 OFFSPRING Kristy, Are You Doing Okay? 307 170 137 1.708

It may debut on the Modern Rock chart this week...
Anyway I don't expect it to go #1...It's a ballad, so while it has more potential to CHR and Hot AC radio, top 10 on alternative radio would be an amazing result, especially since it's a third single...

Keep an eye on the Mainstream Rocks chart. Kristy is a softer song and it'll chart better on there, in my opinion. Like Gone Away did.

Does anyone agree that the back up vocals in the second and third choruses are too loud and obnoxious, especially for a song with the kind of subject matter that Kristy has? For some reason I've always really felt that they are. It's just corny.

Hammerhead and YGGFK are two of the punkest songs The Offspring has released as singles in a while, and they were both hugely successful.

They were? They didn't go anywhere outside the US. And even in the US they did sort of okay instead of hugely successful. Shame though, cause those songs are awesome. I'm not that much of a fan of using the Hot Modern Rock charts as an indication of success since it's only based upon 8 or 10 radio stations. Which can be influenced by playing the right radio festivals, in return of them playing your songs.

For the record, those songs didn't do that well in the US as well! Sure, the chart thingy is one way of looking at it...album sales are another, and as you know, they are not doing well!

Let's hope for a great video, airplay...and hopefully people liking Kristy!

So if this site is official (I don't know much about it), then YGGFK is out of number 1, but Kristy debuted at number 34.

randman21
12-10-2008, 07:57 PM
Take another gander at it. If I'm not mistaken, this is just the most increased plays. Sex on Fire has 210 more plays than last week, and YGGF,K 109 less. But on the right side, Kid has 9,697,000 total plays and Sex on Fire 9,495,000. Plus the "rank" column on the far right side.

EDIT: And by the looks of it, Kristy is actually at number 27 in total airplay. Yippee!

EDIT 2: Oh shit. Never mind. You're right.

T_immortal
12-10-2008, 10:10 PM
Kristy had indeed made its debut on the charts, at #34, so that's good news :). The bad news however, is that YGGF,K has finally been dethroned from it's #1 spot by Sex on Fire. 11 weeks is nothing to sneeze at though, and that reign makes our beloved track the joint number one longest running #1 song of 2008! (For the record, the other track is Pork and Beans).

You have to admit, there really isn't much competition right now, per say. Most of the songs in the top 20 are just kind of blah, and they don't seem to be going anywhere. Kings of Leon might be at number one for 4 or 5 weeks

Omni
12-11-2008, 09:05 PM
It could stay longer. But YGGF,K kept it from being #1 for a good month or so. It was sitting at #2 for awhile. The longer it stays near the top, the more people are bound to get tired of it, I'd assume. Plus, K,AYDO has a long way to climb. It's at #34, is it?

Smash_Returns
12-11-2008, 09:29 PM
Okay, It's almost absolutely certain that Kristy is third single.

1. It's getting a video
2. It's charted
3. They put it on their Myspace Music (Currently is: YGGF,K Hammerhead, TKAA, Self Esteem, K,AYDO?, and COAP)

YGGF,K didn't have that much going for it when it was released as a single. But it went far, kid.

I also think Half-Truism has the best chance of becoming the 4th single, simply because they played it live before RAFRAG was released.

IamSam
12-11-2008, 09:39 PM

I don't think so. I believe Nothingtown. It's poppy, largely agreeable to a big audience, and you could make a pretty cool music video to it.

T_immortal
12-11-2008, 09:55 PM
I would LOVE to see Half Truism as a single! It's a powerful song and a great indicator of the strengths of RAFRAG. It would probably go some ways to encouraging album sales. But for now let's see how Kristy fares, if the video ends up being decent this time around it could really take off, but with the recent record of the videos, I'm not holding my breath :( but I'd love nothing more than to be proven wrong on this one.

bighead384
12-11-2008, 11:36 PM
Stuff is Messed up has GOT to be the 4th single. That will catch EVERYONE'S attention. What other song on the album could you say that about?

And besides, why not? It's the fourth single, have some balls.

Omni
12-11-2008, 11:42 PM
Honestly, I wouldn't mine Nothingtown, Half-Truism, OR Stuff is Messed Up as the fourth single. At least there'd BE a fourth single, and all of those songs own face. Splinter was so poorly promoted it was sickening.

randman21
12-12-2008, 12:34 AM
I just still can't believe how badly I want Nothingtown for the next single. It was my clear least favorite song on the album. Stuff is Messed Up would make a great single because of what's going on in the world today; Half-Truism would make a good one because fast and heavy and catchy, but Nothingtown has the ingredients to make fans out of people who would be, but just haven't found them for whatever reason.

Llamas
12-12-2008, 03:44 AM
Huh, I think Nothingtown is my least favorite song on the album... either that or Rise and Fall. I'd like Half Truism as a single, but I don't think it would do very well. I approve of Kristy as a single, only because I can see it doing well.

I definitely think Stuff would be awful, cause most of it would be edited out. If they could manage to make a clean version of it that didn't suck, I'd be all for it, though. It's got a cool sound.

MOTO13
12-12-2008, 02:26 PM
Man...I don't get why people don't like Rise and Fall...

The album is great, but Rise and Fall is probably the worst and least original Offspring song I have ever heard, barre none. It is such an obvious friggin Greenday sound rip-off I thought it was actually a joke the first time I heard it. I am still amazed this song made it to the album. They should ban this abortion of a song from ever being played live.

jacknife737
12-12-2008, 02:28 PM
Whether or not we get a fourth single, is of course going to depend on how well Kristy does, but i can't see it doing poorly as a single. In fact, i think it may get the most amount of airplay, since i can see non-alt rock radio playing the track as well. Nothingtown, Stuff Is Messed Up, and Half-Truism would all be decent choices for the next single.

Nothingtown is insanely catchy.

Stuff Is Messed Up is different from the other singles, and it's pretty unique with regards to what's currently on the radio. Plus with the meromable chorus as well as that insanely fast-paced verse, it's bound to get noticed. My only concern would be how the large amount of swearing in the song would sound on the radio.

Half-Truism would also be a good choice, although i think the band would choose Stuff Is Messed Up, over this one.

See, although I hear why people compare it to Greenday, there's other good parts in that song that sound nothing like Greenday. It's really just that one part. Who cares? American Idiot and Rise and Fall are both generic punk songs. It's not a big deal to me that they sound alike. I think the lyrics to Rise and Fall are really meaningful and I love the melodies.

Half-Truism isn't going to catch ANYONE'S attention. Period. Although it's good, it's a run of the mill punk rock song from a punk rock band that's been around for 15+ years.

If it's not Nothingtown or SIMU I'm going to be pissed. Nothingtown is catchy, but I think it's main advantage is the fact that it would be really easy to make a cool video for it. But still, I don't think Nothingtown has anything that's going to reach out and grab the average music fan.

It's got to be SIMU. I'm telling you.

Also, remember that the Offspring's management bought the domain names for http://shitisfuckedup.com/ and http://stuffismessedup.com/; so perhaps that's an indication that it could be a single?

But I agree Bighead; Stuff Is Messed Up is going to get the most attention.

See, this surprises me. Rise and Fall and Nothingtown are both just as generic, run of the mill as Half Truism... except Half Truism, in my opinion, has more stuff that stands out (the bridge, the slowed intense choruses...) To me, Rise and Fall and Nothingtown just blend in... I usually forget about those songs. Oh, and it has nothing to do with the Green Day sound.

no but i think "a lot like me" is a far better song and people will take it a lot more seriously.

"A Lot Like Me" is a great song, but it won't become the 4th single. Expand your mind for a second: have Chester Bennington sing it...

Not saying the Offspring are trying to "expand thier sound" but I lovingly call A Lot Like Me the "Linkin Park" track. Regardless, it's up in my top 3 with Dirty Magic and Amazed.

Stuff is Messed Up or Nothingtown would make pretty good 4th singles.

I got all excited about the Hammerhead music video until I realized the band wasn't in it and it was animated. Then I figured the band would read all the fans' input about their appearance in the next video, but YGGFK let me down too. Even though there are pictures of Dexter on the set of the Kristy video shooting, I'm not getting that hopeful.

Yep! That was my suggestion! I asked for 3/4, although Thomas and ilovellamas came and said what I actually meant, 12/8 and 6/8. Anyway, the songs they used those time sigs were "Nothingtown" and "Stuff is Messed Up". Hehe, I nearly forgot about that. I might go bump the proudest BBS Moments thread.:p

It's pretty safe to say that this song isn't going to be a chart topper. Hopefully Kristy can at least break the top ten, for the sake of album sales and the momentum of the album.

Aside from that, I think Sex On Fire will probably stay on top for another 5 weeks. It has no competition.

Yeah, I think we just got spoiled with the success of the other singles. Hammerhead debuted at #5, and YGGF,K spent 11 weeks at #1. This single has only been charting for like a month, after all.

Truthfully, I expected it to have done better at this point. I can understand why Offspring fans don't like it, it's got that whole "Denial, Revisited" pop sound going on. And a lot of the "real" fans get kind of irritated when a song like this goes viral, and then the band is associated with that sort of music as though it's all they've ever done. But the radio fans go positively ga-ga for that sappy shit. I mean, look at "Boulevard of Broken Dreams." It spent 16 weeks at #1, so I expected Kristy to be a lot higher than it is. And the mainstream taste hasn't really changed all that much since 2004.

yeah it is true, but i don't really care if others associate offspring with that type of songs, as long as they buy the new CD lol, no seriously, i really don't care, because i know that we "real fans" know the real shit going on here! so it's cool :] we know its real value!
i think it's a nice song to sing along! and it makes us all wonder, is she REALLY doing okay? probably not!
and if they release some type of EMO video, that will be just perfect for the song (but don't make it TOO emo plz....)

KRISTY has everything to be a hit. More than YGGFK because it would embrace EUROPE and US(more in Europe than US, I believe).
It has great melody.
It has "ohoho" back vocals.
It has xylophone.
It has a lot of sentiment.
And it is well designed.
So it has EVERYTHING TO BE HUGE.
And it could be INTERGALACTIC if they signed me up to do their videoclip. I have such a plot for this one.

Alright! It's at number 12! It moved up for spots and 120 plays. Very cool.

What this means is, if people didn't like this song, it would've definitely started to decline in chart position. RAFRAG officially has 3 songs that millions of people know. 3 successful singles. When's the last time that happened? Kinda wish it made the Mainstream Rock top 40 by now though. It must be at like 41 or something, because last time I checked it was close.

I thought it was like 16 on Mainstream Rock.

EDIT: Nevermind, its modern rock. I really thought it would be bigger on Mainstream, like Gone Away. But I guess the Modern Rock stations are playing more Offspring then Mainstream because of Hammerhead and YGGFK. Just give it a few weeks to catch on. The fact that its charted without ANY BAND PROMOTION is a pretty good indicator. (Thats what happened with YGGFK).

I must say though, The Offspring is pretty much failing at album promotion right now.

One big single, one HUGE single, and another emerging single, along with being released for half a year, and it hasn't even gone friggin gold yet.

randman21
01-21-2009, 08:05 PM
Well, ultimately, it's not up to the band to do most of the promotion, and of course promotion doesn't necessarily translate into sales. I think they (whoever "they" is)did a wonderful job on promoting the album before and immediately after its release, but I agree that it's nowhere near where it should be now. They must have a good reason for not releasing the Kristy video yet, but I don't see it rising much higher on the charts with it.

Omni
01-21-2009, 11:58 PM
What does this mean?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kristy,_Are_You_Doing_Okay%3F

They haven't updated it from #16 yet, but look at the date released. It was released on rock radios last month, but it says it won't be released on the Mainstream rock radio until February 10. So, it's close to #40 on the mainstream radios without even being officially "released" yet? Kind of like how Stuff is Messed Up is getting limited radio play? If so, thats pretty exciting, because it means the Mainstream rock radios are going to have a field day with it on February 10.

jacknife737
01-22-2009, 12:11 AM
I don't think it has been "formally released" yet, since Toronto's 102.1 The Edge haven't started to play it. I assume it's in a similar situation as Stuff Is Messed Up, it's just getting a lot more widespread early play, ie more then just KROQ.

bighead384
01-28-2009, 08:44 AM
Alright, it has finally cracked the top 40 Mainstream Rock Charts at number 39. On the Modern Rock charts, it dropped one spot to number 13, only because that new U2 song jumped right into the top 10 in its first week. It's not as bad as it sounds though, because it increased a very solid 32 plays from last week.

Omni
01-30-2009, 08:55 AM
Bah, that sucks. I guess it's understandable. The new U2 will probably reach #1, but let's hope this doesn't effect KAYDO's climb, since it's still increasing. And it hasn't even been "released" to the Mainstream Rock charts. I always thought it'd do better on the Mainstream, since Gone Away did and it kind of has that Gone Away mood to it.

I think it will crack the top 5. It's hard to tell where it will go from there. It depends on how other songs on the chart do.

Kings Of Leon, Paramore, Seether, Apocalyptica, and YGGFK are all ahead of Kristy on the charts but they're falling fast.

Omni
02-04-2009, 10:17 AM
Well, let's see:

Sex on Fire has apparently began to slide down the charts. Second Chance is an awesome song, and good competition. The U2 Song that jumped straight to #10 - HOWEVER, Hammerhead debuted at #5, so this doesn't necessarily mean the U2 song will be #1 for a billion weeks. Disturbed's Indestructible. So far, those are the only song I'd see stopping it from being #1.

It's up 4 spots and 48 plays to number 7 on the Modern Rock chart! But it for some reason dropped two spots to number 39 on the Mainstream Rock chart. Getting to number 7 is awesome though. When you that far inside the top 10, even the stations that weren't too crazy about the song have to start giving it some spins.

It's official: Kristy was a great pick for the third single. I totally approve of the singles they've released for the first time since Americana. Now if only they'd release Stuff Is Messed Up, it would be perfect. For some reason, I think it's cool when an album has singles throughout the album, rather than just three or four of them consecutively in the middle of the album.
