My life long search is over! It took over a month for cdon to deliver it (apperantly there was no copies left) but yesterday I got self-titled! That's such a kickass album. It's not the same class as Smash, but I'd say it's atleast as good as Ignition. I hate to admit it, but that was actually my first true, punk, album. I love how raw and rough it is.
I'll Be Waiting became my favourite right away. It reminded me a bit of The Noose: a riff intro and then a pretty fast song. Tehran was really good too. But, Beheaded: my god! It's actually a good song, but it would have fitted more on a soundtrack to Postal 2 or something....
Before you ask, no, Kill The President ("in a world without leaders who would start the wars?": do you know what a civil war is?!) wasn't on it. They removed that song, but you can still listen to heads chopping off and "islam be dammed". I don't care, but if they removed Kill The President, they might aswell remove those parts. Although I think it's fun to listen to albums from the time you could sing about killing and stuff, becase I was raised with Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears. :mad:

On that album, and Ignition and Smash, you can really hear what a great drummer Ron was. :(

Cause I've been waiting
For that album to drop down
In my mailbox
I've been waiting for that day
:D

(I wonder what you can reply to this thread...)

And the name, it's from a Thåström album. I don't know what the album's like but I liked the name. (first I wanted to call myself Master of Puppets, the same story about that name, but it was taken)

Now all I can do is hope they'll make some good singles for greatest hits. This is actually a big chance for the band. Now that Green Day has become so popular. If the do a great single, people will hopefully buy the greatest hits, and then they see what a great band Offspring is, and buy some of the older albums.

PS. I think those threads about fake Greatest Hits track lists are so dumb: if the track list was ready, the first place it would be published in would probably be on the official website.

Your country is old. Just kidding. I bet I could find a copy with Kill The President on it, but I'm lazy, so I orderd it online.
