    Default "Come Out and Play" and "Self Esteem" got airplay on a heavy metal station

    According a fan site, "Come Out and Play" and "Self Esteem" both got airplay on KNAC.

    For those of you who don't know who KNAC was or is, it was a heavy metal station in Los Angeles that was on the air until 1995, when it got replaced by a Spanish radio station. KNAC went back on the air a few years later, but on the internet. The fact that The Offspring got airplay on KNAC would make sense because a few years before it went off the air, they played some music by non-metal bands like Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots. I remember my parents listened to that station a lot.
    The founder of The Offspring Wikia, and looking for someone to help out, find out why at this thread.

    Man, if everytime The Offspring's music got played on radio and TV someone made a thread about it, we'd get a whole lot more attention on the BBS!

    I mean, it's not like "Smash" was one of the most successful albums of all time and that those singles "Come And Play" and "Self Esteem" are pretty darn known. And hey, the radio tends to play music that's known! More often than not, especially on rock related stations.

    Aww, man, that made me chuckle, Gusty!
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    Pointing out the obvious isn't neccessatily being an a-hole.

    I hear The Offspring pretty much everytime I watch CQC (One of the most known comedy TV shows in Brazil) and yet I don't make a thread about it everytime. The Offspring is a known band, with known music that gets played on the radio and on TV. I think that everyone who knows the band enough to have registered here knows that.

    While I do understand where you're coming from, I need to point out 2 things:

    1st - You've got a point, and I agree with it, but you don't need to outright bully the guy for being a newbie, not knowing the forum rules or whatever. It's not just 'cause you're the mod that you have the right to mistreat people.

    2nd - CQC's comedians are a bunch of right wing assholes.
