Americana is a video album (released in VHS[1] and DVD[2] formats) by the American punk rock band The Offspring. It contains videos of the band performing stunts along with other extreme sport professionals, and also several music performances by the band. Homemade music videos for the songs "Mota"[5] and "Burn It Up"[6] are also featured. It also features four shoplifting attempts by the band and friends (these attempts are probably staged, however). The video album shares the same title as the band's 1998 studio album, but contains no videos and very little from it.[4] AllMusic called it "low quality" and "no way near as well filmed" as the following video album Huck It.
