I seem to be the only person that hates the fact that Offspring have came out with bad singles for FOREVER!

Americana: pretty fly,wdygaj (KAAR was a great single but over shadowed.)
CO1: original prankster(want you bad wasnt bad was overrated, and million miles away got ignored)
Splinter: hit that,cant get my head and now spare me the details.

I fucking hate them on Columbia. because The Nosse,Lighting Rod,Never Gonna Find Me, Race Against myself, Long way home are so fucking great. but no they pick the worst singles.


the only thing I like about that is people countine to talk shit about the offspring therefore the REAL OFFSPRING fans like most us look past singles and actually buy the albums.

the only downfall has been there picking of singles!

I'd agree! I've never bought a single because all the good stuff never gets released! that can be a good thing for the fact they won't get to popular by the "new" offspring fans! the 9 year olds walking round in offspring hoodies!

Yeah come on, why do they release another shitty single? offspring need to show the world that they do great punk songs. Spare me the details is pure shit, I am very dissapointed in this desicion. They should do a vote on their website. COME ON OFFSPRING MAKE UP YOUR MIND FFS!

CGMHAY was a wicked single just underrated. I tend to buy singles for the b-sides, I'm a big fan of live music and offspring have provided wicked renditions of some of their songs. Hate the remixes though!

its not as if their singles are bad its just that they have been chosen badly. releasing pretty fly, original prankster and hit that didnt help them image wise while these songs arnt as good as other such as staring at the sun, americana, lightning rod, long way home etc etc. i think they need to put out singles that show they dont just come up with one catchy song each album! and spare me the details isnt shit it rocks! then we wont get little wanna be kids and pop fans bringing their image down

The Thread writer is right!
They have such beautiful songs, but they make the videos for worst of them... it's never ending thread- money!!!
I'm just proud that they made clip for Gone Away- it was great!!!
What can I say more... I hope guys from the band are reading it, listen: pretty fly, want u bad, original pranksta and crap like that is SHIT.
Offspring have much real fans, who love great songs that are not comercial...
FOREVER AND A DAY guys

I think want you bad was awsome, but OP, hit that and stuff like that is not what I want the public to hear, more of the noose, never gonna find me, race against myself or lightning rod should be released. then more punk-lovers would find offspring as a good band.

I think they should release When You're In Prison, that song is so amazing. I just looove the bass and the drums in it. The video could be like an old gayporn movie.

Now I'm not talking about "good chosen singles" or "bad chosen singles" I just wanna say something.
I think it's shit to say that a lot of their songs are shit. I mean HELLOOOOO? I just can say, that the melody always fits to the lyrics and the text of a song is the thing you have to look at.
I agree, The Noose, Long Way Home etc. is really great stuff but (Can't Get My) Head Around You, Original Prankster and Pretty Fly are also great songs with a message that hits the spot.
You should think before you judge a WHOLE song (that means not just the video clip and the melody are important, the lyrics are the most important!!!) because you might say very negative "shit" about things which are true, too.

Alright, their singles are not the best song in the CD. So what? Til this singles make more people like them! And I'm sure that most of their fans know them by this "shitty singles"... ;)

there are certain songs that cannot be released as
singles. dont ask me for any details, i dont know shit
myself. but SOME songs just wont be liked at all as
singles. it's all about what the people will like. get
over it, they are people who make good music but
also want to SELL their albums. everybody would
want that, so dont be all naive.

ok hmm this is getting heated.

for whatever reason i hate that im the only one of all my friends who likes the band. now i wud just love it if they cud get to hear some of the stuff i love.

now the problem is that their single choice[bar CGMHAY,TKAA, and to an extent hit that] just arent good reps of whats on the album.

put simply they are never in the top 5 songs in the album. they are kind of the "sissy" songs from the album.


for instance. imagine MMA had been released before OP or better yet dammit i chnaged again. one fine day, denial revisited come otu swinging etc

for Splinter. just imagine the noose, lightning rod[possibly their best ever song?] or race against myself before HIT that.


more then anything its their first single choice thats the rpoblem for me.

i know they got it right[at least sales wise with pretty fly] but it hasant worked with OP and Hit That,


i just wish other ppl cud get a glimpse of why this is my favourite band ever.
that have heloped me out in my darkest, most challenging and have even enhanced the best parts of my life.

(can īt get my) head around you is their best song at least since ixnay ..so shut up !:P
Well that's more of an opinion than a fact. I find it one of the worst songs on Splinter.

I wasnt wrong. So shut up about that.
Second of all I didnt learn know The Offspring from their singles.. I first heard Bad Habit before any other Offspring song.(I heard nothing for something but didnt realize it was Offspring till about 6 months later)
I never said there music wasnt great, there the best band ever.

but all im saying is they put out shitty singles.

On Americana they could have picked( Have you Ever,the end of the Line, Starting at the Sun, Americana)

Co1(Damn It I changed Again, Come Out Swingging or even Vultures!)

Splinter(Nosse,Long Way Home,Lighting Rod,Never Gonna Find Me,Race Against MYself)

just sit back and imagine what those Videos would fucking look like. Insted of
Orignal Prankster,Hit That,Cant get my Head around.

and also I dont know about you guys but I hate having to prove every fucking single person that The Offspring are still a punkband and a good band for that case.

I think since Americana first came out I have converted at least 30 some odd people into offspring fans once they heard everything that werent singles.

The Offspring are not taken seriouse as a rock band anymore and I fucking hate that. There music is better than any shit on Tv,Raido or underground but noone understands because of there stupid ass Record Label Columbia.

to Dexter,
HEY YOU HAVE YOUR OWN RECORD LABEL NITRO, YOU TOUR WITH NITRO BANDS AND EPITHA BANDS, SO WHY THE HELL DONT YOU LEAVE COLUMBIA AND WHAT EVER THE FUCK THEIR PAYING YOU AND GO TO YOUR LABEL NITRO!!!! Than you and the band decide what singles to do and all that.

I hope everyone understands where im coming from. There is no better than The Offspring, never was and never will be.

JUST MAKE BETTER SINGLES!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone who thinks that Cant Get My Head Around You is one of the best Offsprings songs ever.........youve got to be kidding me.

and to countinue what someone said(i dont remember who?) but the lyrics are important

and yeah as much as the singles arent thier best songs, some have the greatest messages.

And as for singles, as much as I dont really like Hit That, it has one of the best messages since KAAR

well thats cause

OP(was stupid)
want you bad(love song)

I cant believe the amount of Hate there seems to be emanating from all the 'fans'.

Sure, they pick REAL radio friendly songs, and sure, sometimes it seems like the strive to make these less than great songs, but hell, they are somewhat good. I didnt get into Pretty Fly right off the bat and I still, will never listen to Original Prankster for as long as I live, but come on.. there needs to be a medium between great songs and what needs to appeal to a broad range of people. If the Offspring didnt make such songs, they'd still be on a small label, or punching out top quality cds and going broke. Wouldnt you rather they sacrifice one or two songs to get one or two thousand more fans? I think you guys are overlooking the fact that the more they can slowly turn new people on to 'harder' or 'edgier' music, the less we'll have to put up with other sports metal and repeated bass beats of butchered Hip Hop.

Do you guys just not get the Satirical joke of Pretty Fly? ... or do you guys just overlooked the Rip on semi-dressed teens falling into the sex-appeal media stream that seems to be 'all the rage'? Sure, some of the songs seem to not even follow what I'm saying, and may just sound like lame party songs, but afterall, isnt that what Rock is all about? A Good Time? A Lot of 90's bands have terrible staying power, and the more fans rag on the band, the more that power wanes.

Case being: There are potential messages in songs, and I think you guys arent giving the Offspring the credit they deserve.

If you want to tear into Singles, tear into songs like Come out and Play (which i cant stand to listen to any more)... If I had my greedy little fan way, Nitro would have been a single, or even Change The World.

It's about Conversion to Revolution to Evolution.

I hope someone understands.
