What do you think about the whole thing? Do you think they made the CD too soon? too late? shouldn't been made at all? what do you think about the whole subject.

Why all bands made The greatest hits. There are no new songs.

I think Greatest hits albums are designed for people who aren't familiar with the band so they compile an album of their 'best' songs to get them into it and will lead to them buying more. I think :-/

there is 1 new song, can't repeat and i heard it. It's cool, but really splinter style. i want more oldschool like ignition, or real offspring like mota :D

Fuck 'em... I don't give a shit whether people are familiar to band or not, they do this for music, not for the fucking fame....

I don't really see any sense on making a Greatest Hits album and more if The Meaning Of Life isn't there!!!!

The only things that I'm gonna buy the record for are:
1-I am a fan, and gotta support The Offspring.
2-Can't Repeat... though u can download now from internet but... anyway
3-The DVD's gonna rock!!!

I don't remember who said this, but I heard part of the reason they're releasing the Greatest Hits album is so they can complete their contract with Sony (needed to make one more album for them). Then they can release their new album on Nitro. Don't know if it's true, just what I heard, and it kinda makes sense.

That would be a devilish thing, but a kick ass one. I hope that's correct, and I do remember them saying that they had two albums after CO1 before their record contract was up with Columbia records. Of course they also said after that second album they were probably going to retire.

I think there should be a lot more of the older stuff on Greatest Hits....

I might pass on the cd ( :eek: ) and just buy the dvd (as in the dvd on its own, not the dualdisk cd....)

Meh

I'm going to buy the greatest hits, maybe its also for newer fans that like the songs off older cds, but dont want to buy the CDs themselves. or they just like their big hits, not their bigger songs...

At first i thought the greatest hits CD was fine, something that a new fan might like etc. But one of my friends (a non-offspring fan) looked at the tracklist and pointed out to me that it was only 14 songs. One song is Can't Repeat and another is Defy You (how is this a greatest hit!?). That leaves 12 'hits' from a band which has recorded over 100 songs over 15 years. Surely they could have at least filled the CD around 20 songs. Pretty dissappointing. =/

I am a big Offspring fan, but I really like more of their oldschool stuff. As far as their Greatist Hits album goes, I think that it's pretty good over all. But I am really disapointed in the fact that they left out "Genocide" which I thought was one of their all time best.

not bad, but i would have liked to see million miles away, or one of those really good songs instead of why dont u get a job. beatles are good, but its not offspring. i blame jackson for offsprings terrible choice in releasing that song.

I think this is about the right time for the greatest hits to come out.

yeah so congrats dudes, if any of you READ this post, maaaan come to Budapest for concert, or maybe next year to the Rock Festival on the island thingie...

It's disappointing, IMO. No old shit = bad.
