The Offspring aren't entirely sure what to do with the GREAT NEW MUSIC they're about to make:
In the true spirit of punk rock, Noodles seems unconcerned about what’s going to happen next.I've had uncles who talked like this - 'yeah, it's actually really liberating to be sleeping in a car, because you can just park up where you like, right? The whole world is my hotel. I could sleep by Loch Lomond, or outside Windsor Castle, or on the top of Snowdon. Although mostly I spend my nights in the hedge outside your aunt's house crying."
“At this point, all options are open. Either we go back and try and renegotiate a deal with Columbia or work with someone else or maybe even make our music free on the internet.
"In a way it’s very liberating, as well as being scary, not knowing what to do and having to figure it out for ourselves, but you know, we’ve been doing this for quite a while and I’m sure we’ll land on our feet.”
I can't help wondering if Columbia were keen on renegotiating the deal, that they might have started doing that before the old one expired.
