The re-release doesnt have it probably because there was a different president in office when they released the first one...I'm not quite sure on that just a guess

I always assumed it was due to the post 9/11 environment and being 'politically correct' or some BS like that.

i agree with dave, it pisses me off that it doesnt have it, and mine is a little scratched up so i cant buy a new one, because i want kill the president on it.

ah,luckily mine aint new released...but yea,second hand record stores indeed are good choise since they dont even take cds to sell if theyre in poor condition..plus its cheap :) but i really got wondering it too sometime,why is kill the president missing on that one? :confused: its one of my all time favourite tracks and i know im not only one alone with it..its a bloody shame

Second hand shops are a bit hit and miss though, as most people should realise the value of keeping it because its so good, rather than trading it in.

I know mine isnt getting sold.

I bought my copy like 4 months ago, i had never been able to find it anywhere and i finally did. It had Kill the President on it and it was new. So to answer your question, I have no fucking idea. It seems dumb to me that they would take that song off the album.

Hmm... that gives me an idea...

It might take a while though. Just be patient.

perhaps they were forced to take it off by the record label....

...because if you read Noodles journal and such...he obviously doesnt like Bush, so i dont think they'd really care. It sucks they took it off though - its an f-ing gnarly song.

I love the drums at the beginning. I still remember analyzing that song for grade nine English. That was an interesting experience...

I'm going with 9/11, but I'll wait to see if I get confirmation on that.

In a politically charged incident such as 9/11 it would be seen as blatently anti-government to have a song called kill the president on a cd. It makes sense that The Offspring removed it from the self titled album, perhaps they did it under advice from their management.

I remember when that happened. The board got shut down and people started threatening the company that owned the BBS. Web Dude gave us a lecture on it.

Whenever I see new copies of Self titled they always have Kill the president on them. Is that cause it's the Australian version? or am I just lucky...

Any of you ever hear of a little program called iMesh? Download songs, videos, software for free. That kind of thing? You might want to try it if you're looking for Kill the president, it'll most likey be available.

Point of clarification:

The self-titled first album was re-released by Nitro Records circa 1995, "KTP" intact. It was silently removed on the new pressing(s) sometime after September 11th--I don't know exactly when, I returned to the BBS after a lengthy absence and it was apparently old news. But it wasn't a specific re-re-release.

I remember when the BBS was shut down due to government threat. It was this BBS and Rage Against the Machines, at the same time. Then the BBS came back and we had moderators. If it's similar reasons for why KTP is not on newer copies of the first album, then that saddens me greatly, and VOTE KERRY NOVEMBER 2ND.

Everyone would have to make themselves a canadite for that to happen. it costs lots of money to run for president. do you have lots of money? i didnt think so...

What I meant was just write their name on the ballot and check it off. People have been known to do that in Canada. I prefer the eenie meenie miny moe method. Hasn't let me down yet.

well if everyone wrote their name down and checked it off, then that would be great and really funny, we should get everyone on these boards to do that, we can make history. I can see it now...

Dude, you got ripped off, lol :D I got it for 15 bucks at a local cd store. :D

I'm sure it was removed b/c of the 9-11 incident. The publisher most likely demanded that it get removed to avoid unwanted attention and lawsuits.
