I noticed that
The Offspring haven't a special thanks for their fans on an album...
most other bands have got that on their album booklets,(In Extremo,Billy Talent....)
i hope they're going to change that with the next album,if there's one

It would matter less than you imagine. It's not that important at all, unless there will be a special thanks personally to you. But of course I wouldn't mind them thanking the fans one more time.

There is no "I don't care" option in the poll. :]

ich zitiere(from Billy Talent):"...and especially our fans for all your love and undying support."

I voted yes. Hopefully on the next album it'll have a thank you list.

I'm pretty sure they haven't had a "thank you list" on an album since, what Americana? I could be wrong though, but i'm too lazy to go check.

Either way, i won't lose any sleep over the issue.

i think its because theyre not rabid, flaming homosexuals.

other than a public place for inside jokes and a name check for some people that helped them out, thanks sections are utterly pointless.

you want to be thanked for being a fan of the band? :confused:

I have a habit of voting before I read the entire question. I would like it, but I don't believe it's necessary.

I wouldn't be offended if they didn't make a "special thanks" for us the fans, although I admit it would be pretty nice considering how important we are for the band. After all, no fans, no band - it's that simple. I voted "yes". I do wonder who voted no though, because either you're indifferent to them putting a special thanks or you want them to. I have troubled understanding why you WOULDN'T want them to do it. Lol at randman for voting before he read the question. I guess the other person was just plain drunk or retarded, or just had a huge urge to be different from everyone else.

I think special thanks should be _special thanks_ not generic thanks to everyone.
We know the band are thankful for us, special thanks credits should go to those individuals who help inspire and create and album. I think anyway...

If they made a special thanks to their fans with naming their BBS name, then yes, I would really want that!

Of course that would be nice, but I don't think that's necessary. We all know that they appreciate us so they don't have to put thanks on album.

Hey, man. Not all of us can write "Beheaded" okay! I'll take what I can get.

Um.. anyway :)

My point is, I think a thanks like that might be generic and pretentious - like I feel it is with bands who do it.

I think they thank us fans, by putting on awesome shows, and being true to their art, and themselves - that means something, a whole lot actually. They thanks us by appreciating us, being down to earth and taking the time and effort to be nice to us, even when it's a pain for them.

Stuff like that is so much more important then some print in the sleeve of an album!

Perhaps a :p or ;) was in order.

I agree with generic, but not necessarily pretentious (maybe forced; insincere). Yeah, they don't owe us anything, except the service for which we pay (CDs and concerts). They don't even have to satisfy us but I'm glad they throw that little bit extra in there. :D

I think they do thank us, more than what a "special thanks to our fans" in a booklet is worth anyway. That's why I think it's not necessary

I would like it, but I don't believe it's necessary.

exactly my words, i mean it would be cool, but it's not that important since they are always thanking us :]

No artist make music for the fans. They make it for them self. They make music that they enjoy and because they love it. Not what the fans like.

ok, so letting us listen their music. better? i didn't mean they're playing music that ppl, not them, like, but cds,concerts etc are for us so the music is for us too.

Change that to "good artists", because I'm pretty sure we can start naming a bunch that make music mostly for fame/money.

I disagree, I don't really think that thanking the fans, be it in an album or wherever, is pretentious. It's almost the contrary, in my opinion, and shows respect/appreciation for us. Generic, maybe, but not pretentious. A band with a dozen fans can thank its fans. One with worldwide fame can thank its fans too. It doesn't mean you think highly of yourself, it just means you appreciate people who support you and your music.

Considering how many many many offspring fans are basically pricks to the band, I don't think thanks are in order.

This.

This forum (GOD) has been nothing but whining and complaining for the past few months. We don't deserve a "thank you".
