Biography

In 1984, guitarist Bryan Dexter Holland and bassist Gregory Kriesel, more known as Greg K., decided to create their own punk band after they both were refused to enter the Social Distortion performance. The other members of Manic Subsidal, as the artists initially called the group, became Doug Thompson, Kevin Noodles Wasserman and Jim Benton. Soon Thompson and Benton left the collective and Holland became the lead vocalist, while James Lilja replaced Benton on drums. In 1985, the command changed the title for The Offspring. However, Lilja did not stay in the band for long - after the first single I'll Be Waiting/Blackball he was substituted by Ron Welty. In 1989, The Offspring recorded the debut eponymous album, produced by Tom Wilson - known for his work with Social Distortion, The Vandals and Dead Kennedys. The band headed on a tour, but it was cut after Wasserman was stabbed during one of the benefit concerts.

In 1992, the collective came back to the studio with Wilson in order to record Ignition. The popularity of this album exceeded all the hopes of the band. Soon after the release, The Offspring began a two-year tour in the support of the disc. In 1994, the artists came back with the glorious Smash, which became the biggest selling independent release in the world. Such punk rock hits as Come Out And Play, Self Esteem and Gotta Get Away brought the band to the mainstream fame. During the record of the disc, the collective's relations with Tom Wilson began to fade and musicians decided to establish their own label Nitro Records - for now, Dexter is solely responsible for the studio. The Offspring toured again and issued the Ixnay On The Hombre long-play with hits All I Want, Gone Away and I Choose. In their songs the artists touch upon various themes from personal relations to the social processes in the USA - this topic was especially developed on the Americana disc, which saw light in 1998. The winding pop punk hit Pretty Fly (For A White Guy), aggressive Why Don't You Get A Job and disturbing track The Kids Aren't Alright were the public's favorites for the tunes and satiric texts.

In 2000, The Offspring recorded Conspiracy Of One with the single Original Prankster. In three years, Ron Welty, who was founding his own band Steady Ground, left the command. The musicians labored with drummer Josh Freeze over the next edition Splinter. After the release, they announced that Atom Willard would become the new drummer for The Offspring. Originally, The Offspring wanted to call the disc Chinese Democracy, but it became known that it was the name of the long-delayed long-play by Guns N' Roses - after the court cease by Axl Rose against the band, the title was changed for Splinter. In the single Hit That The Offspring used electronic samples which was different from their previous work. In 2005, the band issued the best songs collection Greatest Hits. It featured hits from Smash to Splinter. In November 2006, the artists began work over the new full-length Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace. In July 2007, Pete Parada, former from Saves The Day and Face to Face, was announced as the new official drummer of The Offspring. In the summer 2008, Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace saw light. The album was fulfilled in the easily recognizable punk rock stylistics of the band.
