Established in 1984, The Offspring is a chart-topping, award-winning punk rock group hailing from Huntington Beach, California. Featuring a unique fusion of punk, rock, and alternative sounds, the band has gained notable praise and recognition among its peers and music-lovers alike.
In its early days during the mid-1980s, The Offspring began as a cover band mainly consisting of members Ron Welty, James Lilja, Dwight Fritzinger and Kevin Wasserman. The group's namesake was inspired by a joke that appeared in an episode of The Simpsons.
In 1986, the band released their debut self-titled album. The Offspring achieved their first major commercial success with their 1994 album, Smash. It quickly became the best-selling independent rock album of all times.
In 1997, the band released their third album Ixnay on the Hombre. The album peaked in the market but was praised for its experimentation and intricate songwriting.
The following album, Americana, became an even bigger success than its predecessors. The album featured some of the band's biggest hits such as Pretty Fly (For a White Guy), Why Don't You Get a Job?, and The Kids Aren't Alright.
Following 2002's Conspiracy of One, in 2003 the band released Splinter, their sixth studio album. The band released their latest album, Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, in 2008.
