  • Ixnay on the Hombre is the fourth studio album by American punk rock band The Offspring. Produced by Dave Jerden, the album was released on February 4, 1997 through Columbia Records (their former label Epitaph released it in Europe).

Ixnay on the Hombre is the fourth studio album by American punk rock band the Offspring, released on February 4, 1997 by Columbia Records. After the massive commercial success of their previous album Smash (1994), the band entered the studio in the middle of 1996 to record a new album. The title combines Pig Latin ('Ixnay' is the version of the word 'nix', familiar in 1940s Hollywood movies) and Spanish ('hombre', 'man') to convey the message 'fuck The Man', as in 'fuck authority'.[3]

Ixnay on the Hombre was a moderate commercial success upon its release, debuting at number nine on the US Billboard 200, and was well-received by both critics and fans. It was later certified platinum by the RIAA for shipments of over one million copies in the United States, and has sold over three million copies worldwide.[4] Four singles were released from the album: 'All I Want', 'Gone Away', 'The Meaning of Life', and 'I Choose'.

Background and recording[edit]

By the time The Offspring began writing new material for their fourth studio album in 1995-1996, they were the biggest act of Epitaph's roster and had originally declined to leave the label before signing a recording contract with Columbia Records. Following the widespread commercial success of the band's previous album, Smash, frontman Dexter Holland wanted The Offspring to release more albums on Epitaph, or remain on the label for a long time. However, tensions were encountered when Epitaph founder and Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz decided to sell Smash to a major label in 'return for a royalty override on it,'[5] an action that the band did not like. Gurewitz had approached several major labels, such as Geffen, Capitol and Sony, in attempt to sign The Offspring.[5] The band eventually signed to Columbia, and Holland recalled that they 'took less money' with the label and the signing 'was not to try and make more money.'[5] Holland also claimed that The Offspring signed to Columbia because they would not 'record for someone who thinks [Gurewitz] can force [them] to' and would not 'record for a guy who's worse than a major label.'[5] Recording sessions for Ixnay on the Hombre took place from June to October 1996 at Eldorado Recording Studios with producer Dave Jerden (Alice in Chains, Anthrax, Jane's Addiction, Social Distortion).

On the recording process of the album, guitarist Noodles stated:

We recorded a few more songs than we needed, and if we had used some of the other ones that were left off, it would have ended up a little more risky. But we're not disappointed in what we kept. I think it's a great record and I love these songs. Maybe we'll save the limb-walking for the next one.[6]

Noodles also noted that with Columbia's financing, they had more time to work on the album, specially with the guaranteed studio space - 'We did Smash on no budget at all and were constantly calling our studio to find out when it was empty just so we could sneak in at a discount price.' - and Holland added that they had 'the time to get better sounds.'[7]

'Pay the Man' was one of the songs recorded during the 'Ixnay on the Hombre' session but was only released on 'Americana'. 'Change the World' is a further development of the unnamed hidden track that appeared at the end of the previous album Smash. 'Change the World' itself contains a hidden track, a brief spoken piece by Larry 'Bud' Melman of the David Letterman Show.

Ixnay on the Hombre was released on February 4, 1997, and is the first Offspring album distributed via Columbia Records. Their former label Epitaph Records released it in Europe because of disagreements between the band and the label's founder Brett Gurewitz. The band was able to release its album on Columbia for the US and other international releases but had to complete the album release in Europe through Epitaph. The Offspring would continue releasing albums on Columbia until it was announced in early 2013 that they had fulfilled their contract with the label.[17]

Ixnay on the Hombre peaked at number 9 on the Billboard 200 album chart.[18]

The AllMusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awards the album 2.5 stars and states: 'Ixnay on the Hombre sounds like a competent hard rock band trying to hitch themselves to the post-grunge bandwagon.'[2]

Touring and promotion[edit]

The Offspring toured relentlessly for almost a year to promote Ixnay on the Hombre. Prior to its release, they headlined the Big Day Out tour in Australia in January–February 1997, along with Soundgarden and The Prodigy.[19] The Ixnay on the Hombre tour kickstarted on February 11, 1997 at Foothill in Long Beach, California with One Hit Wonder, who had just been signed to Holland's label Nitro Records. A week later, they played five shows in the East Coast of the United States with The Joykiller, which was followed by a ten-date tour with AFI and Strung Out and a European tour with The Vandals and Lunachicks. The Offspring continued to tour over seven-month period from May to December 1997, which included U.S. tours with AFI/L7, Voodoo Glow Skulls/The Joykiller and Hagfish/One Hit Wonder/Good Riddance, as well as a Canadian tour with Doughboys, three Brazilian shows with Charlie Brown Jr., and four shows in Australia with The Living End.[19]Social Distortion also supported The Offspring on selected dates.[20] The Ixnay on the Hombre tour ended on December 18, 1997 in Osaka, Japan, with AFI supporting them.[19]

The Offspring is an American rock band from Garden Grove, California, formed in 1984.[2] Originally formed under the name Manic Subsidal, the band has consisted of lead vocalist and guitarist Bryan 'Dexter' Holland, bassist Greg Kriesel, guitarist Kevin 'Noodles' Wasserman and drummer Pete Parada since 2007. Over the course of their 35-year career, they have released nine studio albums and experienced lineup changes, most noticeably with their drummers. Their longest-serving drummer was Ron Welty, who replaced original drummer James Lilja in 1987, and stayed with the band for 16 years; he was replaced by Atom Willard in 2003, and then four years later by Pete Parada.

The Offspring is often credited—alongside fellow California punk bands Green Day, Rancid, Bad Religion, NOFX, Blink-182, Pennywise and AFI—for reviving mainstream interest in punk rock in the 1990s.[3][4][5][6] They have sold over 40 million records worldwide,[5][6][7][8] being considered one of the best-selling punk rock bands of all time.[9] The Offspring achieved its first commercial success with their third studio album Smash (1994), which has sold over eleven million copies worldwide,[10] setting a record for most albums sold on an independent record label, and was the first album released on Epitaph to obtain gold and platinum status.[11] After switching record labels, from Epitaph to Columbia, in 1996, the Offspring continued their commercial success with its next six studio albums: Ixnay on the Hombre (1997), Americana (1998), Conspiracy of One (2000), Splinter (2003), Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace (2008) and Days Go By (2012); the former of the four were certified platinum, multi-platinum, platinum and gold status by the RIAA respectively.[12][13] The band is currently in production of their tenth studio album, tentatively due for release in late 2019 or 2020.[14][15]

  • 1History


Early years (1984–1987)[edit]

Bassist Greg K., drummer Pete Parada, and frontman Dexter Holland in 2008

The foundations for the Offspring began with guitarist/vocalist Bryan 'Dexter' Holland (who was a drummer at the time) and bassist Greg Kriesel playing music together in a garage in Cypress, California in 1983.[16] After hearing the T.S.O.L. album Change Today? at a party, and following a riot at a 1984 Social Distortion show, they decided to form a band called Manic Subsidal.[17][18] Holland changed his role from drums to guitar, and the band was rounded out by singer Doug Thompson and drummer Jim Benton. Marcus Parrish briefly joined as a second guitarist, however, no recordings were made at this point.[19][20] After Thompson was forced out, Holland took over vocals, and Benton was replaced by Clowns of Death drummer James Lilja. In 1985, school janitor Kevin 'Noodles' Wasserman (also formerly of Clowns of Death) joined as a second guitarist, allegedly because he was old enough to purchase alcohol for the other members, who were under the legal drinking age.[17][21]

In 1986, after changing their name to the Offspring (after a B-movie called The Offspring: They Were Born to Kill), the band released their first single; the 7' 'I'll Be Waiting'. They released the single on their self-made Black Label record company, named after the brand of beer. An earlier version of 'I'll Be Waiting', which was then known as 'Fire and Ice', appeared on the long-out of print Subject to Blackout compilation tape, which was also released in 1986.[22] Also in 1986, the Offspring recorded a demo tape, which received a positive review in Maximum Rocknroll magazine.[23] Lilja left the Offspring in 1987 to pursue a medical career in oncology,[24] and was replaced by Ron Welty, who was 16 years old at the time.[25]


The Offspring and Ignition (1988–1993)[edit]

After recording another demo in 1988,[17] The Offspring signed a record deal with a small-time label, Nemesis Records. In March 1989, the band teamed up with producer Thom Wilson (who had worked with the Adolescents, Dead Kennedys, Social Distortion, the Vandals and Youth Brigade) to record their first album, titled The Offspring.[17] The album was released in limited numbers by the label, only on the 12' vinyl and cassette formats, and was not released on CD until 1995. A six-week national tour followed, but Noodles was later stabbed during a performance at a Hollywood anti-nuclear benefit.[17]

In 1991, the Offspring teamed up with Wilson again to produce the Baghdad 7' EP and a third demo tape. This EP and demo were instrumental to the band's signing with Epitaph Records.[26] In 1992, Thom Wilson and the Offspring returned to the studio to record their second album Ignition, which was released in October of that year. The band went on U.S. tours with Pennywise and Lunachicks, and a European tour with NOFX.[21]

Mainstream success with Smash (1994–1996)[edit]

When the Offspring returned to the studio in early 1994 to record their third album,[27][28] the band's relations with producer Thom Wilson had begun to strain. The band released what would become their biggest selling album, titled Smash (1994). Fueled by the hit singles 'Come Out and Play', 'Self Esteem', and 'Gotta Get Away', the album set the all-time record for most units sold by an independent label band at 16 million records. Smash has continued to sell consistently well in the years since its release, and has also been certified 6x platinum in the United States. The album also sold very well outside the U.S., particularly in Australia, where it debuted No. 1 on the ARIA Charts, and remained in that position for three weeks in 1995.

After the release of Smash, and armed with a newly expanded income, the band decided to buy out the rights to their first album. Holland and Kriesel then created their own record label Nitro Records and started signing bands. One of their first releases was a re-release of the band's 1989 debut album The Offspring. The label also signed a number of punk bands including the Vandals, Guttermouth, Jughead's Revenge and AFI. Soon after, Nitro Records became solely Holland's responsibility.

Ixnay on the Hombre, Americana, and Conspiracy of One (1997–2002)[edit]

The Offspring performing in 2001

Despite the success of Smash, the Offspring left Epitaph and signed with Columbia Records. Epitaph retained its rights to release the next album in Europe, while Columbia had it for all other territories. The band's attorney, Peter Paterno, had issued a letter to Epitaph stating that the band had 'substantial and fundamental reasons' for wanting to leave the label and that Epitaph had 'breached its contract.'[29] The band began writing and recording their fourth album, titled Ixnay on the Hombre, in 1996. The album was released on February 4, 1997, which was also Noodles' 34th birthday. This album was not as successful as Smash, although it did sell four million units and spawned five singles. The album saw the band move away from the political-punk themes common to many Epitaph bands, and more into mainstream rock with songs like: 'Gone Away' and 'I Choose'. The video for the last track was directed by Holland himself. Dexter commented that Ixnay was probably not as well-received as Smash because it was such a departure, and that many fans probably were expecting Smash Part Two.[30]

In 1999 the Offspring released Americana. Three of the album's singles: 'Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)', 'Why Don't You Get a Job?' and 'The Kids Aren't Alright' became the band's biggest hits, making the album the peak of the Offspring's mainstream popularity. The former song topped the charts in nine countries, including Australia, Japan, Norway and the United Kingdom. 'She's Got Issues' was also released as a single, and was a minor hit.

In 1999, the band appeared as themselves in the film Idle Hands. They played a cover version of 'I Wanna Be Sedated' (originally by the Ramones) and 'Beheaded' at a school dance before Holland's character is killed. They also appeared at the infamous Woodstock 1999, where their performance was broadcast live on pay-per-view television.

2000 saw the band release their sixth album called Conspiracy of One. The band intended to release the entire album online through their official website, to show their support for downloading music on the internet.[31] However, under threat of legal action by Columbia through their parent company Sony, only the first single 'Original Prankster' was released on their official website (the rest of the record was leaked to fan sites).[32] The band also sold T-shirts on their website with the Napster logo on it and donated money to Napster creator Shawn Fanning with the profits.

The band also released a single 'Defy You' exclusively for the film Orange County.

Ron Welty's departure, Splinter and Greatest Hits (2003–2005)[edit]

Savage Garden Discography

Longtime drummer Ron Welty left the group in 2003 to play in Steady Ground,[33][34] a band in which he played drums and co-produced (they broke up in 2007). Neither Welty nor the remaining members have elaborated on the departure.

In 2003, the band released their seventh album Splinter. The Offspring recruited Josh Freese to record the drums for Splinter and later announced that ex-Rocket from the Crypt drummer Atom Willard would be the official replacement for Ron Welty. The album's original title was to be Chinese Democrazy (You Snooze, You Lose), from the name of the long-delayed album by Guns N' Roses. As a result, Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose filed a cease and desist order against the Offspring, but eventually began to calm down when he realized this was announced on April the first. The first single 'Hit That' enjoyed moderate success on MTV. 'Hit That' used a variety of electronic samples, different from what the Offspring has done in the past.[35]

In 2005, the band released a Greatest Hits album in both DualDisc and regular CD editions. Greatest Hits contains 14 of the band's hits between Smash and Splinter, and two previously unreleased songs, 'Can't Repeat' and 'Next to You' (a cover of the Police available as a hidden track). The compilation does not include any songs from the band's first two albums. The DualDisc contains video of Dexter and Noodles discussing the band's history and a bonus acoustic version of the song 'Dirty Magic.' About a month later, the band released a video DVD with all of their music videos, and some videos from a live show.

During the summer of 2005, the band played the Vans Warped Tour for the first time, and followed that with a tour of Europe and Japan. After the 'Greatest Hits' world tour the band took a break from writing, recording and touring. During the hiatus, Willard was recruited by Tom DeLonge for his band Angels & Airwaves and released an album, We Don't Need to Whisper, in 2006.

Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace (2006–2009)[edit]

Pete Parada and Noodles performing in 2009

In November 2006, it was reported that the Offspring were back in the studio recording their eighth studio album, Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace with producer Bob Rock and 'a fistful of demos'. In July 2007, Dexter announced that the band had finished two more songs and the album was being recorded in Orange County, California.[36]

It was announced on July 27, 2007, that former Saves the Day drummer Pete Parada had been chosen to be the Offspring's new drummer, replacing Atom Willard, who went on to join Angels and Airwaves. The band's first shows with Parada were at the Summer Sonic festival in Japan in August of the same year.[37] It was during these shows that the band debuted 'Hammerhead' which would become the first single from the new album. Parada did not play on the new album however; Josh Freese once again handled drum duties, as he did with Splinter.[38]

The Offspring co-headlined the Australian Soundwave Festival during February and May 2008, alongside Incubus and Killswitch Engage.

On April 9, 2008, Dexter announced that the album would be called Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace and would be released on June 17.[39] The album's first single, 'Hammerhead', went to radio on May 6.[40] Additionally, the Offspring's official site provided an MP3 download of the song to the general public on May 5.[41] The second single from the album, 'You're Gonna Go Far, Kid', had topped the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart, and had stayed there for 11 weeks, a record for the band. It was also the Offspring's only RIAA Gold song, proving it to be one of the most successful singles the band had released in their over-twenty-year career. Despite this, Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace has never received any certification by the RIAA.

Also in April 2008, Epitaph Records announced that the label would be reissuing Ignition and Smash; both albums were remastered, and Smash contained a new 24-page booklet. The re-issues were released on the same day as Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, coinciding with the new album's release.[42]

The supporting tour for the album began on May 16 with a performance at the X-Fest festival in California. On May 28, it was announced on the band's website that Scott Shiflett (from Face to Face) would replace bassist Greg K. on current tour dates due to a birth in the family. Kriesel returned in mid-June.[43] In October, with the addition of touring guitarist Andrew Freeman, the band embarked on a 3-week Japanese tour followed by a tour of South America. On December 13, 2008, the Offspring headlined the nineteenth annual KROQAlmost Acoustic Christmas. In an interview at the Almost Acoustic Christmas show, guitarist Noodles stated that the Offspring would be taking a break for a month or two and promised a US tour to kick off in 2009.[44] They toured North America on their 'Shit is Fucked Up' tour from May through July with Dropkick Murphys, Alkaline Trio, Street Dogs, Pennywise, Shiny Toy Guns, Sum 41 and Frank Turner.[45]

Days Go By (2010–2013)[edit]

In May 2009, the band started doing preliminary work with Bob Rock in Hawaii for what would be the ninth Offspring album. They recorded sporadically through the next year. In June 2010 the Offspring headlined two dates in Western Canada.[46] The Offspring took a break from the studio in order to join 311 on their summer 2010 Unity Tour. The 19-date tour was held in amphitheaters around the U.S., also featuring Pepper as a special guest. Before the 311 and Pepper tour, the Offspring played four West Coast dates in June, which were supported by Terrible Things.[47][48] At the Las Vegas show on June 18, 2010, they debuted a new song, titled 'You Will Find a Way',[49] which later became the song 'Days Go By'. After that the band started working on the new album. In January 2011, session drummer Josh Freese (who recorded drum tracks for the band's last two albums) mentioned on his website that he was in the studio working with the Offspring again.[50]Ronnie King had also confirmed that he would appear as the keyboardist on the album, after performing the same role on Splinter.[51] The band interrupted their work in 2011 in order to tour and took the main stage at the 2011 Reading and Leeds Festivals.[52]

After the tour, the band started recording in earnest and it was later announced that the album was in the mixing stage.[53] They headlined the PunkSpring Festival in Japan, on March 31, 2012 in Tokyo and on April 1, 2012 in Osaka, with Sum 41, New Found Glory and All Time Low.[54] At one of the shows, the Offspring performed a new song called 'The Future Is Now'. They were also confirmed to play at the Rock am Ring/im Park and Novarock festivals in the summer 2012.[55][56] Prior to that, the band would be playing at the 20th annual KROQWeenie Roast, which was to take place at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Irvine, California on May 5, 2012.[57]

In March 2012, the band announced on their Twitter page that the album was finished. On April 20, 2012, Kevin and Bean announced that the Offspring's new single 'Days Go By' would be premiered on April 27.[58] Three days later, the band announced on their website that Days Go By would be the name of their ninth studio album, which was eventually released on June 26, 2012.[59] On April 30, 2012, the band released another song from Days Go By, 'Cruising California (Bumpin' in My Trunk)'.

In early fall 2012, the Offspring toured with Neon Trees and Dead Sara. They were co-headliners of the Soundwave in Australia in 2013 alongside Metallica and Linkin Park. After this, they performed at the 20th annual WJRR Earthday Birthday on April 13, 2013, and at the Gulfport Music Festival a month later.[60] The Offspring spent much of the spring, summer and fall of 2013 playing shows in Europe, the United States and South America.[61] In November and December of that year, they will play Warped Tour for the first time in eight years, this time in Australia.[62]

On June 20, 2013, it was reported that the Offspring was working on a live album with engineer Ian Charbonneau. Instead of a standard release, the live album (which was recorded in Warsaw, Poland at the Orange Warsaw Festival held at Narodowy Stadium) will be available online.[63] As of September 2014, however, the live album has not been released.

Touring and Round Hill Music (2014–2016)[edit]

The Offspring spent the summer of 2014 on tour commemorating the 20th anniversary of their third album Smash. They headlined the Summer Nationals 2014 tour from July to September, with support from their former labelmates Bad Religion and Pennywise as well as the Vandals, Stiff Little Fingers and Naked Raygun.[64][65] To coincide with the Summer Nationals tour, the Offspring released cover versions of Pennywise's 'No Reason Why', and Bad Religion's 'Do What You Want' and 'No Control' on their YouTube account.[66] These cover versions were released on the EP Summer Nationals, which was released digitally in August 2014.[67][68] On December 24, 2014, Radio Contraband announced on their Facebook page that they would premiere the Offspring's new single, 'Coming for You', on January 30, 2015.[69][70] The Offspring toured in support of the 'Coming for You' single and performed their 1998 album Americana in its entirety at the Amnesia Rockfest on June 19, 2015, in Montebello, Canada.

The Offspring reclaimed the rights to their Columbia Records albums in 2014. The band started auctioning off the rights to those albums in August 2015, as well as their songwriting credits, for around $30 million. Sony Music Entertainment (the owner of Columbia Records) and Round Hill Music were allegedly interested in bidding for the Offspring's music.[71] In January 2016, Round Hill acquired the band's Columbia Records catalogue, along with their career-long music publishing rights, for $35 million.[72][73] In December 2016, Round Hill signed a distribution deal with Universal Music Enterprises for the Offspring's Columbia catalog (including the Greatest Hits album).[74][75] By September 2015, the band had finished 2-3 tracks.[76][77] On July 20, 2016, a new Offspring song 'Sharknado' was premiered, and was recorded for the film Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.[78][79][80]

Tenth studio album (2017–present)[edit]

Bassist Greg K. mentioned a possible 2018 release date for the new Offspring album, and revealed that one of the reasons for the album's slow progress was because they have been working on songs here and there. He also stated that the band was in no hurry to finish it.[81] Noodles was absent from the Offspring's summer 2017 tour with Sublime with Rome,[82] due to a 'sudden family matter'; filling in for him on dates were Tom Thacker and Joanah Nimory. On December 13, 2017, The Offspring posted Twitter and Instagram photos of their December calendar, with the second and third week of the month labeled 'studio', and wrote, 'Who's ready for new music in 2018?'.[83] In the same month, Noodles told Front Row Live, 'We're working on it. We were in the studio all this week. We finished up for the holidays on Tuesday, Wednesday, and then we're gonna get back in the studio as soon as the new year [rolls around], in January.'[84] On February 23, 2018, the band announced via Instagram that they had finished tracking down drums for the album.[85] The Offspring were later asked on Twitter if their new album would be released soon, and replied, 'We're hoping by summer.'[86] On June 9, 2018, the Offspring debuted one song that is expected to appear on the new album, 'It Won't Get Better', while performing at the Greenfield Festival in Switzerland.[87] On July 20, 2018, it was announced the Offspring would release a cover of 311's 'Down' and 311 would release a 'reggaefied' cover of the Offspring's 'Self Esteem', which 311's lead singer Nick Hexum referred to as 'probably [his] favorite song of theirs;' the cover versions coincided with the co-headlining Never Ending Summer tour.[88] On August 30, 2018, Noodles revealed to Music Feeds that The Offspring was working on two separate albums. He stated, 'We have a whole record or more worth of stuff here — I think we're looking at making two records out of it — you know, like, splitting 'em up and coming out with a pretty straightforward punk and rock record that sounds like us, and then maybe saving some of the crazier stuff for another record.'[14] A few days later, he told WHIO-AM that the album will be released around the beginning of 2019, and added, 'We don't have a record deal right now and we're trying to work something out. We don't know what we're going to do with that.'[15]

On February 23, 2019, Noodles confirmed on his Instagram account that the new Offspring album is finished. He wrote, 'The album is done. Working on getting it to the fans now. Stay tuned!'[89] A month later, Holland confirmed that the album was '98% finished' and mentioned a tentative fall 2019 release.[90] In August, Kriesel filed a lawsuit against Holland and Noodles, following an alleged decision by the two in November 2018 to ban Kriesel from the band's activities, including studio recordings and live performances.[91] Kriesel and his lawyers also alleged that the two conspired to 'seize the business, business opportunities, and assets' of Kriesel's stake in the band without compensation.[91][92]

Style and influences[edit]

The Offspring has been labeled under multiple genres, such as punk rock,[93][94]melodic hardcore,[95]pop punk,[96][97][98]skate punk,[95][99][100][101] and alternative rock.[102][103] A signature style of the Offspring are their chorused 'whoas', 'heys', or 'yeahs'. The band's former labelmates NOFX poked fun at them for this in their song 'Whoa on the Whoas'. Several tracks also incorporate elements of Eastern music, which can be heard on the likes of 'Tehran,' 'Me & My Old Lady,' 'Pay the Man,' 'Dividing By Zero,' and the verse hook from 'Come Out and Play'. Their lyrics cover a wide range of topics, like personal relationships, such as in their songs 'She's Got Issues', 'Self Esteem' and 'Spare Me the Details', and the degradation of the United States, politics, and society in general with songs like 'It'll Be a Long Time', 'Americana' and 'Stuff Is Messed Up'. The lyrics generally reflect a sarcastic viewpoint, which, along with the language, can be offensive to some. This is acknowledged in the opening track from their album Ixnay on the Hombre, 'Disclaimer', which is sarcastic itself. Like 'Disclaimer', the first track of most of the Offspring's albums are an introduction of some sort, 'Time to Relax' (from Smash), 'Welcome' (from Americana), 'Intro' (from Conspiracy of One), and 'Neocon' (from Splinter) are also examples of this. The Offspring's influences include The Dickies, the Sex Pistols, The Misfits, T.S.O.L., Agent Orange, the Adolescents, the Ramones, The Clash, the Dead Kennedys and Suicidal Tendencies.[104][105][106][107][108][109][110]

Impact and legacy[edit]

With the mainstream success of Smash, going six times multi-platinum and earning worldwide airplay, the Offspring's impact persists to this day. As one of the most popular punk bands of the 1990s, they are credited with reviving popular interest in punk rock and bringing the genre back into the mainstream,[111] and have influenced younger artists such as Simple Plan.[112] The Los Angeles modern rock radio station KROQ listed the Offspring at No. 8 in 'The KROQ Top 166 Artists of 1980-2008' Countdown by Year memorial,[113] with 30 appearances on the station's year-end countdowns as of 2008.[114]

The Offspring's music has appeared in movies, such as The Chase, Batman Forever, I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Faculty, Varsity Blues, Wanted, Idle Hands (which also features a cameo by the band, while Dexter Holland plays himself), Me, Myself & Irene, Loser, Tomcats, Bubble Boy, The Animal, American Pie 2, Orange County, The New Guy, Bowling for Columbine, Pauly Shore Is Dead, Click, How to Eat Fried Worms (for the trailer) and Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.[115] 'Mota', 'Amazed', 'The Meaning of Life' (all from Ixnay on the Hombre) were featured in Warren Miller's 1997 documentary Snowriders II.[116]

'Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)' can be heard in the King of the Hill episode 'Escape From Party Island'. 'Original Prankster' was featured in The Cleveland Show episode 'American Prankster'. 'You're Gonna Go Far, Kid' was featured in the 90210 episode We're Not in Kansas Anymore, while 'Kristy, Are You Doing Okay?' appeared in the episode Zero Tolerance.

In video games, the Offspring's songs have appeared in Crazy Taxi, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 and SingStar Rocks!. 'Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)' appears in Guitar Hero: Van Halen. 'Hammerhead', 'Gone Away', 'Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)', 'Self Esteem', 'All I Want', 'The Kids Aren't Alright', 'A Lot Like Me' and 'Days Go By' are downloadables for the Rock Band series. 'Hammerhead' was also featured in the football video game Madden NFL 09. 'Days Go By' was featured in NHL 13.

'Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)' received a parody treatment by 'Weird Al' Yankovic as 'Pretty Fly for a Rabbi'.
