Track by track commentary sounds good :)

But the TL is short of a few, wheres Million Miles Away?, Meaning of Life? :confused:

did anyone else notice that can't repeat will be the FIRST single, does that mean there will be more singles to come off of the album?

Where the hell are you comming from with saying those are 2 of there most popular songs? I like them and all, but not once have I heard a radio station play those 2 songs..

Remember guys and gals, it's a "greatest hits" album. The songs on there are of course going to be the songs that played the most on the radio or on TV, that singles best sold...

My solution to all of you it you don't like the track listing, get yourself a CD and make your own personal version of an Offspring Greatest Hits.

A few thing doesn't match here. It was said that they recorded cover(s), where are they? And one would thought they'd put all their singles that has a video, where are they? It's also weird that we get the CD at June 22 according to Sony...

Well the article said it's tentative, maybe there will come some more such as Million Miles Away, I Choose which should be there as they were singles and they have a video.

Zee
04-25-2005, 11:10 PM
did anyone else notice that can't repeat will be the FIRST single, does that mean there will be more singles to come off of the album?

I noticed the same, indeed it does sound like there would be another single. But maybe it's better not to interpret everything literally.

Canīt Repeat will be the first single because itīs new. All other songs have been released as singles earlier

Yeah yeah but if you read it carefully the text gives an impression that there'd would be another single, of course a new one. Without the word "first" it would be another case. Maybe they just wrote it without thinking too much, I don't know. Soon we know.

i heard that, i think i actually heard it here somewhere. i was wondering about that police cover though. did they say it was going to be on the GH? cuz it could always still be on the new album that is supposed to be coming sometime after GH.

Now, who says we can trust this website? Isn't it a bit suspicious that The Offspring website has no info on it, but a relatively small website about punk bands gives you this list of songs, some of which you hate, and doesn't tell you when/where/how it got the info? Let's wait until somebody who is actually INVOLVED with The Offspring gives an official statement!

Personally, I hate some of those songs. Keep 'em Separated sucks because it has an average beat and an awkward "Gotta keep 'em separated!" in the middle of it. Why Don't You Get A Job is ok, but not as good as some of The Offspring's other songs. I want Lightning Rod on the list, personally...

04-26-2005, 01:25 PM
I would think "Bad Habit" would be on there...but I guess it has to many bad words. Fuckers...

The greatest hits cd will just be their current setlist pretty much, minus some splinter songs. It seems they forgot the words OUR and SUCCESS in the title of their new song!

Omni
04-26-2005, 04:31 PM
Most people who are going to buy this have already heard all of their songs, and don't give a rats ass about the music itself. You can't tell me that you don't have these songs SOMEWHERE on a CD or your computer. You people should be more interested in the loads of special features they've generously included (provided this is correct, which it may not be), instead of complaining that they've had the nerve to put some of the greatest and well-known songs on a Greatest Hits CD.

04-26-2005, 05:26 PM
I don't much like that tracklist. Not that it's bad, but it's far too short for a GH. Why don't they like their first 2 albums? There's many good candidates from S/T and Ignition. I suppose since they didn't hit it big until Smash, they're trying to make it as appealing to the mainstream as possible. The new song and DVD sound good, but if that's the final tracklist, I for one am disappointed.

Jack the Tripper
04-26-2005, 05:27 PM
I don't care if they only have Feelins and the new song. As long as they have a new song, I'm buying it.

04-26-2005, 05:37 PM
im wondering why they forgot singles like "meaning of life", " i choose", and "she's got issues"....
and still, i think they should put songs on there, not just because they were on the radio, but because they are damn good songs. like "lightning rod", or "bad habit", or "have you ever".

04-26-2005, 06:00 PM
They forgot so many songs that could be considered as hits. And what about the Police cover? That's why a lot of people don't believe it's the real track list.

What the fuck Splinter song on greatest hit...
Splinter is too new for call a song from Splinter as "Greatest hits"
And why They dont put Beheaded if you go to a Offspring show they alway a guys who say"PLAY BEHEADED"

and ahhh anyway its probably not the real track list...

04-26-2005, 06:56 PM
they're missing way too many songs to only have 14. That must not be be the final list.

0r4ng3
04-26-2005, 08:04 PM
1. it's not a complete list

2. in most cases, Greatest Hits means all the hits, no matter how obscure

3. the police cover was never officialy on the list, dexter said he was just working on it

RobinoZombie
04-27-2005, 04:33 AM
it says that the new song is the FIRST single of this disc...hoping that tracklist aint entirely...or something..but it does look like a greatest hits package, just look at other artists stuff..exept nofx, cause that ones great. but collections will ALWAYS lack good songs

Swill
04-27-2005, 05:53 AM
It couldnt be the track list but even if it is what did you expect.........elders..........no hero.........something to believe in......amazed..????????????????Not going to happen!!!!!!!!!!!!Its a greatest hits ............expect nothing but singles.........and only the ones that sell best.............shes got issues for example never got a proper release in europe like wdygajob and pretty fly..........in fact id say it probably is the final list.....the only thing missing are the covers and other new stuff we were promised..........wait for the website to annouce it. We all know dirty magic is on it somewhere and yet the website still hasnt annouced it. Dont believe half these punk websites anyway.......................if your a fan you'll buy it anyway cause despite us all having these songs already the offspring are my favourite band and we should support them.........

Finally a reliable source and good news from it too (the live stuff on the dvd + audio). I didn't care much about the tracklist (except new stuff) anyway, since you already have those songs (petty obvious). The extras are the most important thing.

05-05-2005, 05:16 AM
i highly doubt the band will do a short tracklist like that, they will add million miles away and the meaning of life, and what about...i choose and other hits like that??? if they wanted to actualy make big sales on this next one, they would think about putting around 22 songs, including the police cover they were sopossedly doing, and i heard they wanted to put 'i wanna be sedated' on the greatest hits album for a ramones tribute or sumthing...
im trying to avoid the fact that it could be the real track list

can everyone just deal with that tracklist, it looks like a typical Greatest hits record...sure we all miss some songs, and for me that looks like a greatest hits list. you have to be realistic. if you complain so much about this you should make your own greatest hits.
And hit albums, arent often directed att the fans, they already have most of the albums and know which songs they like, they dont need people at lables telling them that THESE are YOUR favorite songs. A greatest hits record is for people who maybe only like one album or have heard some songs, but dont want to buy al the cds...
...peace
