A Piece of Americana

A Piece of Americana is an EP by The Offspring. The EP was released only as a radio promo and there was no retail release.[3] It contains all four singles to appear from the then-upcoming album, though some were slightly modified before their album release. The earlier versions from this EP later appeared on varying releases of the singles. The EP also contained the parody track "Feelings", which was not released a single like the EP's first four tracks.
