The Offspring

The Offspring (sometimes referred to as simply "Offspring") are a popular American band from Garden Grove, California which formed in 1984. The band currently consists of Dexter Holland (lead vocals, guitar), Noodles (guitar), Greg K. (bass), and Pete Parada (drums).

Since their 1994 album Smash, which is often considered the best-selling independent label album of all time, the band has achieved commercial success over five albums, with singles such as "Come Out and Play," "Self Esteem," and "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)". In addition to Smash, their next three albums, Ixnay on the Hombre, Americana, and Conspiracy of One, have each received platinum certification.

To date, The Offspring have released seven studio albums, one compilation, three EPs and one DVD, selling over 32 million albums worldwide and making them one of the best-selling punk acts of all time. The band is credited, along with fellow California punk bands Green Day and Rancid, with reviving popular interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid 1990s. The Offspring are currently in the studio working on a new album that is due for release sometime in 2008.
