About The Offspring
It is rare—almost unheard of, really—for
a punk rock band to have a successful career that spans over thirty years. Yet The Offspring has done just that. The band's
roots date back to 1984 when Dexter Holland (vocals, guitar) and Greg K (bass) witnessed a riot at a Social Distortion Concert.
After this life-changing concert, the two boys decided to form a band called Manic Subsidal, and started practicing in their
garage in Garden Grove, California. Shortly after, Noodles (guitar) and Pete Parada (drums) came on board and The Offspring
became an unstoppable force in the rock world, but not before they played to small crowds in intimate venues in Santa Cruz
and San Francisco. With every show they played, they amassed more and more fans, and word spread quickly about this young
band that was adding a new, somewhat eccentric, twist to classic rock and roll. From the eight records that The Offspring
has released, over 40 million copies have been sold worldwide, making them one of the most esteemed and prolific punk rock
bands in history. They are also included in a small group of bands that are credited with breathing new life into the American
punk rock scene in the 1990s, which became a huge movement among younger generations. Along with The Offspring, this group
includes Green Day, Bad Religion, Rancid, and Sublime. The Offspring will go down in history as one of the greatest punk rock
bands of all time, but since they are still rocking and belting out their most popular hits, they are anything but history--they
are current, relevant, and ready to blow your mind at their next show! So buy your tickets to see The Offspring do what they
do best by heading to StubHub today!
The Offspring's third studio album, Smash, went platinum,
selling over 20 million copies worldwide. They weren't going to be one hit wonders, though, and continued to release albums
that went platinum and even multi-platinum. Some of their most popular songs include "The Kids Aren't Alright", "You're Gonna
Go Far, Kid", "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)", "Come Out and Play", and "Gotta Get Away". The Offspring has come a long way
since 1989 when they released their first self-titled album on vinyl, of which only 5,000 copies were made. Since their humble
garage beginnings, which some may argue are the best places for punk bands to get their start, The Offspring has become a
household name and a legend in punk rock. Every punk rock band that has come along since The Offspring's conception have been
influenced in some way by the band's legacy and their ability to rock, and rock hard.
The Offspring Trivia
isn't actually his real name (shocker). The Offspring's guitarist, Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman is now known by his silly nickname,
but he hasn't always been known as "Noodles" in the band. He earned the nickname from one of their old producers, Tom Wilson,
who would get mad at Kevin for "noodling" on the guitar. The name clearly stuck. Also, Noodles was a school janitor when he
was invited to be in the band, allegedly because he was old enough to buy alcohol for the rest of the group.
The Offspring has rocked out at over 1,000 shows throughout their career, and they are just as energetic
and loud as they were when the band emerged onto the punk rock scene over thirty years ago. There's no doubt that The Offspring
can tear up a stage, which is why you should get your tickets to their upcoming concerts via StubHub as soon as possible,
or risk missing out on one of the biggest punk rock parties of the year. Gather your friends, family, coworkers, or neighbors
and prepare for a high-energy, rowdy show that will have you pumped up for days after. As one of the best-selling punk rock
bands of all time, The Offspring is bound to put on one of the most incredible shows you will ever see.
