Biography

American pop-punk band The
Offspring formed in Garden Grove, California in 1984 as Manic Subsidal, adopting
their new name two years later with a line-up that consisted of frontman Dexter
Holland, guitarist Noodle, drummer James Lilja, and bassist Greg K. The next
year Ron Welty replaced Lilia behind the kit and it was that line-up that would
cross into the mainstream when their third album Smash (1994) became the
biggest-selling independent album of all time shifting over 16 million copies. Singles
like Come Out and Play” and “Self-Esteem” fit with a wave of
post-grunge American rock bands such as Green Day and Blink-182, who were
immersed in metal and skate culture, but bubblegum pop friendly enough to
appeal to an MTV audience. Signing to Columbia Records, their fifth album Americana
(1998) brought the band international fame with single “Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)” becoming a huge hit and topping the charts in the UK, Australia
and Sweden. Early endorsers of the internet, they planned to release Conspiracy
of One
(2000) through their website, but were prevented by their record
label and instead scored another big European hit with lead single “Original
Prankster”
. Splinter (2002) and Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace
(2008) failed to recapture that commercial success, but the latter still landed
in the top 10 of the U.S. album chart. Though they maintained their loyal fan
base by touring regularly throughout the next decade, their only album of new
material was 2012’s Days Go By. Longtime bassist Greg K. departed in 2018
and after nearly a decade from their last album the group issued Let the Bad
Times Roll
in 2021.
