Artist Countdown: Offspring Top 30 6p ET @offspring

OffspringThe 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 Noodles, bassist Greg K. and drummer Pete Parada. They are credited—alongside fellow California punk bands like Rancid, Sublime, Green Day, and Bad Religion—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 band’s first three albums for the independent record labels Nemesis and Epitaph earned them a following. Their third studio album, Smash (1994), became a breakout success and eventually 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), which was also successful, due to the album’s second single “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid” reaching number one on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart for 11 weeks and becoming their only gold single in America to date. Their latest studio album, Days Go By, was released on June 26, 2012. The Offspring is currently writing new material for their next studio album with an indefinite release date. (Source: Wikipedia)
