Wikipedia

The Offspring is an American punk rock band from Huntington Beach, California, formed in 1984. Formed under the name Manic Subsidal, the band consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Dexter Holland, lead guitarist Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman, bassist Greg K. and drummer Pete Parada. The Offspring is often credited—alongside fellow California punk bands like Rancid, Sublime, Green Day, Bad Religion and NOFX—for reviving interest in punk rock in the 1990s. They have sold over 40 million records worldwide, being considered one of the best-selling punk rock bands of all time.

The Offspring's first three albums for the independent record labels Nemesis and Epitaph earned them a following. The band's third studio album, Smash (1994), became their first commercial success, and has sold over 20 million copies worldwide, setting a record for most albums sold on an independent label. Smash was also the first album released on Epitaph to obtain gold and platinum status. The critical praise given to Smash garnered attention from labels, including Columbia Records, with whom The Offspring would sign in 1996. The Offspring continued to achieve success with their four follow-up albums, Ixnay on the Hombre (1997), Americana (1998), Conspiracy of One (2000) and Splinter (2003), reaching platinum, multi-platinum, platinum and gold status respectively. Splinter was followed five years later by Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace (2008), and then four years later by Days Go By (2012). The Offspring is currently writing new material for their next studio album, which is due for release in 2015.
