The Offspring

The Offspring have always been considered one of the most popular and influential punk-rock bands ofthe 90's. The band released two albums before the release of their 1994 classic breakthrough album 'Smash'. Four singles from that album, "Come Out and Play", "Self Esteem", "Gotta Get Away" and the radio-only "Bad Habit", helped The Offspring explode into a large mainstream success. Smash went on to become the best selling album on an independent label ever. Three years later, the band returned with their major-label debut 'Ixnay on the Hombre', 5 singles were released.

The Offspring have always been considered one of the most popular and influential punk-rock bands ofthe 90's. The band released two albums before the release of their 1994 classic breakthrough album 'Smash'. Four singles from that album, "Come Out and Play", "Self Esteem", "Gotta Get Away" and the radio-only "Bad Habit", helped The Offspring explode into a large mainstream success. Smash went on to become the best selling album on an independent label ever. Three years later, the band returned with their major-label debut 'Ixnay on the Hombre', 5 singles were released. The album didn't match the success of the previous album, but did sell quite well, with the popularity of the singles "All I Want", "Gone Away", and "I Choose". 1998 saw the release of 'Americana' which was just as successful as 'Smash, with the huge hits "Pretty Fly", "Why Don't You Get A Job", and "The Kids Are Alright" and other single "She's Got Issues". In 2000 they released Conspiracy of One which sold less than Americana, and received fair reviews but still sold fairly well. Conspiracy Of One included the hits "Original Prankster" and "Want You Bad". In early 2003, longtime drummer Ron Welty left the band while they were recording their next album, Splinter, which received fair reviews, but still sold reasonably well, with the singles 'Hit That' and 'Head Around You'. After five years of silence, The Offspring returned with their new album, 'Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace', in June 2008. Which included the huge hit 'You're Gonna Go Far Kid', other hits 'Hammerhead' and 'Kristy Are You Doing Okay?'. Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace sold well but less than other albums and had average reviews. The Offspring returned in 2012 with the song 'Days Go By', which was positively received, from the album of the same name. The second single 'Cruising California' performed well in some countries but was criticized by some fans. Days Go By, the album, received average reviews and sold less than Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace. As of 2014 The Offspring are currently working on new material. « hide
