    Exclamation Raise your voices!

    When i talk to people about The Offspring, when i pass by the chat or when i read people's favourite Offy songs there is a thought that hits me...
    where did all the good old songs go?
    Okay, we've still got the records and if we dont, we can simply download them, but it feels like there is something missing...
    When talking about favourite Offspring songs, some common names are Cool To Hate, Kill The President, D.U.I (yes, even though it's a b-side), Beheaded, Black Ball, L.A.P.D, Get It Right and the list can get longer, we all know it!
    We love these good old classics, right?
    Some people have found a track called Hopeless, from the earliest days when The Offspring still were Manic Subsidal, the song is only available on mp3 but people still love it!
    I just wonder... even though these songs still are so popular... how often do we hear them when we go see The Offspring on their tour? NOT OFTEN!
    Yes, we have heard Dirty Magic in an accoustic verision during the Conspiracy Of One tour, but is that enough?
    I say: MORE CLASSIC SHIT, BLOW US ALL TO HELL!!!!
    Anyone with me?!

    hm its really too bad the hit songs run over old classic ones..where they really started from.its such a shame to leave great old songs behind,that were the reason people liked them in the first place sure they try to play quite equally on shows,some new and old stuff,bit of something for everyone but still its mostly new songs from latest years...not saying they were bad (even i dont care for them that much) but what happened to songs from for example self titled? when was last time they played any?

    Exactly!!!
    I think that mosh pit that opened up infront of the stage during Da Hui, certainly would last longer than for one song if they played Beheaded or something there.
    That would be a blast!
    After all... the old stuff is what made Offspring what they are today, dont forget the roots, man!
    If they go for No Hero instead of Pretty Fly and Beheaded instead of Hit That during next tour, that will be enough to at least blow my mind away!

    yes, that would be awesome.. but they have to appeal to the masses, not the 'big fans' like us who know every song.. :| we can always dream, though.

    Hum, the thought of having an Offspring concert with JUST old Offy songs? DAMN that'd be like the highlight of my life right there! Or at least some songs off the older records, and ones that weren't singles from like Smash, Americana, and Ixnay; you know just for the die hard fans. Offspring, not to put them down or anything, they've also been around for almost 20 years, and only seem play the stuff that's played on the radio, and that's well known ("Pretty Fly", "Come Out and Play", "Kids" etc.); not that I don't love it! Yet in contrast Bad Religion who've been going strong for 23 years still stay true to their roots and play stuff from their first (out of ten or more) albums! I so agree with y'all, go old Offspring! I just wish some band member would read this and react to it!

    Indeed! Bad Religion really put on a great show, i mean 13 fucking albums.... might be more tho but so ive heard it to be.
    And Bad Religion still make every single fan real happy when the show is over cuz everyone liked it!
    I think The Offspring doesnt necessary have to fill the needs of the "newbies" and none of the others, i think a more mixed up tour would do great!
    It was my point actually... to hope that some band member would get to hear our opinions through this in one way or another and it can only be done if we voice our opinions about it!
    To compare Offy on Bad Religion once again... there are at least 2 cd's on sale where other bands (such as Puffball, Adhesive, Falling To Pieces, Troublemakers and Pridebowl) play covers of Bad Religion, i got over one of those cd's in a store once, it's called Fuck Hell, "This Is A Tribute To Bad Religion!" and everything from the artwork to the recordings with great sound quality and lots of soul put into the music by the bands, everything is damn good.
    Why aint there anything alike with The Offspring?!
    I mean... skip all ideas of a "best of..." album, absolutely nothing like that, please! But some good covers WANTED! By the way... does anybody know any Offspring covers that are available on mp3's on the net somewhere?
    If anyone's in a band, i suggest you to cover something of Offspring to honor their earlier stuff and put it up on internet, too!

    it was really good point comapring offspring to bad religion when it comes to shows...would be great if offspring could learn a little lesson from them
    and indeed,that cover album was good all the way from first track to last...offspring have been around for long and they got some at least as good music from their past...only offspring cover i've heard this far was Smash turned into metal version...ok cool,but thinking of it again it's kinda depressive

    Well if we were to ever see the classical songs it would be in their last tour ever. And me and my band were gonna cover session but the band broke up after a couple of shows. so there was never any time to get our name out there and actually do a good cover.
