I think it's time for a thread like this,
to thank The Offspring for what they've done and reached this year, now that we're going into another new Off-tastic year!

This year, 2008, have been a very active and positive Offspring-year. So, I just wanna numerate some good happenings from this year, and I think I'm talking for all the Offspring-fans out here when I say I want to thank you guys for beeing such active and good to us! Thanks!


¤ The downloadable "Hammerhead" single - oh man, good memories of this one
¤ The "Hammerhead" contest for the US people
¤ The fantastic "Rise And Fall Rage And Grace" album, with premiere online, both the album and the two musicvideos

¤ Many, many news and such on the homepage - actually, if you compare to the past years, this is the year with the most news
¤ Smash and Ignition album reissue - I bought both of them
¤ Many new merch-things, like t-shirts, Club ME CD etc. - I actually got my Club Me CD 23rd December
¤ Old and new songs featuring in three games (Rock Band, Madden 09, Tap Tap Revenge)

¤ The WMMR acoustic performance of the songs Come Out And Play, The Kids Aren't Alright, Staring at the Sun and Nothingtown - I guess this was a (positive) shock for everyone around here. this is one of the things that we probably had expect the least of The Offspring. thanks for doing this this, and I think everyone really loved the slow TKAA-version

¤ You're Gonna Go Far, Kid and Hammerhead doing amazing on radios
- You're Gonna Go Far, Kid reaching number one at the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks and staying there for 11 weeks[/B] making it the longest song on the 1st place in 2008 along with Weezer - amazing. just amazing

...and of course:
¤ Many, MANY pro-shot videos and live broadcastings of The Offspring performing live - I'm gonna gather all of this in one thread, I've already started a bit but I'm not finished (http://offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35402)


I think that's something of the most important stuff from 2008? If I forgot something, just tell me. Anyway, I'm really happy for that The Offspring is still out rocking, making new albums and such. I haven't got the chance to experience The Offspring back in the 90's, so I'm really glad they're still pushing on. So 'til now, merry Christmas and a happy new year!

And Dexter, Noodles, Greg, Pete or Donnie, keep Norway or Sweden in your minds. ;)

Nice grafic, I liked it alot!
Nice recap as well, you've covered pretty much everything. The only thing you didn't mention that I can think of is to thank for them being on tour some places (European festivals and japan). :)

Um, I'm curious. What's with all the random bold letters dotted throughout this? Some kind of subliminal message? :p

I FUCKING LOVE THIS BAND! Whoops, wrong thread...

Personally, I would like to thank the Offspring for coming to North Carolina for the second time, and the first in X number of years. Even though, I wasn't able to go, I can now man up and stop bitching about their choice of location.

Also, May 2, when KROQ premiered "Hammerhead" was a major event. The anticipation and anxiety that lead up to that was palpable. Heh, I was so overcome that I couldn't even wait. I just set my computer to record about 10 minutes before and stopped it 10 minutes later. My recording sounded like crap, but Tijs's saved the day. Simply incomparable.


Um, I'm curious. What's with all the random bold letters dotted throughout this? Some kind of subliminal message? :p
Haha, I caught on to this after a few words and wondered the same. Couldn't decipher anything, though.

Yeah, that's true, they've been touring a lot. I'll write it up later!
And the little graphic there? Heh, just some "pro" paint-skills. ^^,

Hahah! Well, it wasn't symbolising anything, just "decoration". Hah, though, I could have written a secret message.

Yeah, there's always something to do when you get bored nowdays. xD

Thank you for RAFRAG. I remember the day it was premiered on internet. I just sat in front of my computer and eagerly waited for each song to premiere. It was also the day i joined the forum. After a few year long anticipation it finally happened, and hearing new songs from you was one of the best moments of last year. And it made me want to form my own band even more than ever before (and few moths later i did that).

Thank you again, and i hope that 2009 will also be as good (or even better) than 2008 was.
