That would make some sense... just before their U.S tour.

Then hopefully Half-Truism just before the European tour to boost them up again. ;)

I don´t know if it true... right?. It´s my premonition about this thread... Why?

Today i read the articule in wikipedia about "Kristy, are...."

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

Okay, read on the right in your hand.. You have a column... In this column said: Realeased date, Recorded, Genre, etc...

Well....

Please read on "Realeased". It says:

December 2008 (Rock Radio)
February 10, 2009 (Mainstream Radio).... Think!!!. It´s Tuesday. Probably on monday 9th post the video clip..

It´s a premonition. I don´t know if it true. Sorry, I don´t have news... Right?..

Think!!!

I don't think it's going to be released on that date, since wikipedia isn't a valid source. But it will probably get released sometime around then, since they'll be gearing up for their North American tour.

don't you have the real one player?? with real one player it automatically asks you if you want to download that video, and then it downloads it into your real one media library...so simple as that :)


when you are watching the video, there is a small window that appears asking you if you want to download that video, it also happens when you are watching youtube videos! it's really great! you should download that stuff!

Well this video definitely hammers home the point that The Offspring now fall under the 'alternative' banner rather than 'pop-punk'. Not that that's a bad thing, I like the song, and the video. It's just so... un-Offspringy. No love for Noodles, Greg or Pete either, but at least Dex puts in a good performance.

It almost sounds bad, but I'm glad that the concerned boy in the video never brings himself to do anything, even in the end. It's a song about the regret of inaction, after all. I appreciate that they didn't try to slap a happy ending on the video.

Don’t apologize, we have all been waiting so long for this video and appreciate the effort you made to upload it for us. Also, a big thank-you to Rutegard for dropping me a note and the link so I could watch it, while I couldn’t get into the BBS :)

I love the video and I also think that it is right that only Dexter appears in this video, because if you look at the lyrics of the song, he refers to himself in the first person. Examples are : I knew that something was wrong, And I should have spoke out, And I’m so sorry now.

Oh man, oh man, oh man...
I'm SO excited right now. I feel like a little girl, hah! :D

Just watched some few seconds of the video - don't know if I should wait to see it properly or not - but damn, that looks good! So does Dexter.

So I think most of us got right about this video? We, or at least I, thought that Dexter (and maybe the band, but I don't care) would appear in this video, because it's a deep and important song for him & Co, and *damtidam* he did. It felt like in Hammerhead and YGGFK they didn't even care about the videos (though, I like YGGFK video a bit), but this video seems really good.

This is how poeple like it. I can really see it getting much played on TV! I really hope it will in Norway too. oh man, that would be awesome.



Now we know why Dexter had longer hair again (until recently, when the spikey hairstyle returned). Spikey hairstyle just wouldn't look as good in this video.

And I'm glad he did it this way. I really liked the long hair, so good that it apperead like that in the video.

I think it's better that it's only Dexter. This is a song on a personal subject, based on his own feelings and regrets involving he and a childhood friend. Considering that, I think it would be ridiculous to see something like Noodles rocking out the solo.

I agree, it was better just with Dexter. It sort of reminds me of (don't hate me) Greenday's 'Good Riddance (Time of your life) video, which I love. Hate to make that comparison but both videos feature only the singer, with an accoustic guitar and a story going on the background.

First off, cheers for uploading!

The video was pretty good, i'll wait until i see a full quality version before judging it too much. It looks like it'll do well on mtv (lots of angsty teenagers), but i was really well done, and it was nice to see Dexter.

Out of the RAFRAG videos, i think i prefer You're Gonna Go Far, Kid a bit more, since i really liked its unique style and concept, while this one is more of a traditional format. Still, great job guys!

I agree, it was better just with Dexter. It sort of reminds me of (don't hate me) Greenday's 'Good Riddance (Time of your life) video, which I love. Hate to make that comparison but both videos feature only the singer, with an accoustic guitar and a story going on the background.

I can't say that I've ever seen the Good Riddance video, but I'm guessing it's something like the ending of Seinfeld. Even though Seinfeld got the song wrong, it fit and this video fits with the song just great. I also expected it just be Dexter (or none of the band).

I think it's better that it's only Dexter. This is a song on a personal subject, based on his own feelings and regrets involving he and a childhood friend. Considering that, I think it would be ridiculous to see something like Noodles rocking out the solo.

True....but I would have still liked to see the other dudes.

Well, my review:

I don't love it, I don't hate it. It's average. Gone Away is way way better. And even if I know having Dexter is better than nothing, I think this is a band not an artist named Dexter Holland.
It's better than the previous two, even if I think that YGGFK's video is more catchy than this one.

The video doesn't fully show the meaning and all the strong feeling of the song. I don't want to be rude, but I believe that idea i had posted in this forum would work much better than this one. But hey! This director was the same of HONEST GOODBYE by Bad Religion! And you know something? The video was so bad that they didn't released(only in the NMFH deluxe version DVD).

Anyway, at least there's a video and it's not CGI. God bless that.

I love the vid! I think in a way, it's personal for Dexter that's why it was only him in it. (damn he looks mighty fine in the vid too!)

And the high school guy was sort of a reflection of Dex. (poor Dex! i can't imagine him going through that guilt)

The message is clear; The girl looks normal, gets along well with others but she's got a huge problem she just can't tell anyone. Kinda reminds me of me!

And yes, it kinda reminds me of Time of Your Life- only better. Soooo much better with Dex in it. =)

But all in all, i love it!!!! Kudos! :D

You're over-excited. I understand it's a new video, it has Dexter, okay I GOT IT. But it's JUST a nice simple video. Don't know why it reminds me of Can't repeat in some way. The same colours, the same image "temperature"( I don't know how to express this in correct english) and one more time again pale image, it doesn't transmit much emotion to who is watching. You may hate Americana's and Original Prankster videos but damn they are intense and vibrant. And then you have Gone Away which is by far their best video, playing with that special effects and some strong emotional scenes. That shot with Ron without drum set with his head lying down is just amazing.
This is not that kind of video that makes you hold in front of tv to see it if you're not an offspring fan.

So you would say the entire album of RAFRAG is happy? Let's check it out:

Half-Truism - a song about a bleak outlook on life. NOT happy.

Trust in You - a song about regretting one's detachment from others and the resultant loneliness. NOT happy.

You're Gonna Go Far, Kid - a song about the ever-present tendency individuals have to tear down everyone them for personal gain. NOT happy.

Hammerhead - a song simultaneously about war and school shootings. NOT happy.

A Lot Like Me - a song about a man who feels like he's led a wasted life and sees someone younger following the same path. NOT happy.

Takes Me Nowhere - a song about self-destructive behavior that one would like to stop, though he's not sure if he ever can. NOT happy.

Kristy, Are You Doing Okay? - a song about child molestation. NOT happy.

Nothingtown - a song about feeling trapped in one's own life. Stuck in a rut. Not that sad, but not happy.

Stuff is Messed Up - a sardonic, tongue-in-cheek assessment of modern entertainment, politics, and popular culture. The degradation of society. NOT happy.

Fix You - the bittersweet reality of a failing relationship. NOT happy.

Let's Hear it For Rock Bottom - Don't be fooled, this song only makes it sound like going nowhere in life is a good time. It's called sarcasm. NOT happy.

Rise and Fall - I don't want to say I told you so, but this album is NOT happy.

So what exactly does the style of music have to do with it being mainstream?

Also, they've written slow songs since Ignition. And just because something is happy, it doesn't mean it's bad. They aren't angsty teenagers anymore, and haven't been since the 80's.

If the video is being streamed off the internet, you can use DownloadHelper to download a direct copy to your computer. For example, you can use it to download videos off YouTube.

Amen, my brother.
Sound and some melodies of RAFRAG sounds "happy", you know. Where is something like Americana melody, or The Meaning of life - that song always kick your ass! It's so powerfull. Melody of "Rise and Fall" (for example) gives me nothing, maybe happy feeling. Not everyone understand the lyrics (english language) or read the lyrics. Cause not everybody is from English speaking country. Melody is important as the lyrics are.

Americana had Pay The Man, Have You Ever, and Staring at the sun. But it also had Pretty Fly, Walla Walla and Why Dont You Get A Job.


Ixnay had The Meaning of Life, Cool To Hate and All I Want. But it also had Mota, Way Down The Line and Don't Pick It Up.


RAFRAG has Trust In You, Half-Truism and Hammerhead. But it also has Let's Hear It For Rock Bottom, Nothingtown and Rise & Fall.





RAFRAG is following the same path that The Offspring have been going on since Ixnay.

I don't want to talk about the same shit again but this album's videoclips made almost no impact on me...

Anyway, Dexter looks good on the video. But i hate that acoustic guitar; The one he plays on live shows is way better. And that girl is really pretty.

You know what, I was thinking abt the same thing. I really wonder who's the girl Dex was talking abt... Kristy sounds like his wife's name but somehow i don't think it's her. Hmmm..

Anyway, if i were her, i'd feel touched that Dex wrote this beautiful song. :rolleyes:

Things are looking good for this single. It's been steadily getting more and more radio plays each week, and now we have a very likeable video to go along with it. I'm totally stoked about the fact that RAFRAG has maintained it's momentum extremely well, even though record sales are a little disappointing. I think that will really add to the atmosphere and energy when they start their tour.

Does it really matter? We've seen the video already, when it'll be aired officially all we'll get is a higher quality. I don't see anything ultra exciting and orgasmic about Kristy, Are You Doing Okay? video premiere.
Another question is about possible commercial boost for RAFRAG sales or Offspring growing bigger, but again it's insignificant for those who have Offspring in their hearts. What will you do if the band will become huge today? Tell your friends that you've been a long time fan and today it's cooler than ever to be an Offspring fan? Is that the peak of your Offspring appreciation?

Why would it matter if they outsold other artists? I'd much rather have The Offspring we have now than some super fancy popular version of themselves. The music is still good, no matter how well it sells. Well, getting rid of emo bands would be a good thing if it would happen because of The Offspring i guess, but other than that...

Becoming like U2? Well, at least we would see Dexter on stage at all those charity events instead of full-of-himself-attention-whore Bono :rolleyes:

I never skipped Kristy either. It got really stuck in my mind. Im always singing it. Now more than ever. Tho I can't say it's my favourite from the RAFRAG. I guess it's the easiest to sing.

My very first impression of the video was that it sucked big time. However, talking to Gustavo, I am going to watch it again and try to use different eyes. Gustavo said he liked it because what is in the video is maybe what exactly happened and how Dexter saw that happen. So it does make sense and I acted like a douche. Well, it took me almost 2 months to get used to RFRG and like it, maybe Kristy will get to me anytime soon and then maybe I'll evetually apologize (or regret) for the bad things I said.
