One of the key acts to emerge in the second wave of punk rock in the late 1980s, this Californian band built a cult underground following and helped reshape the scene for a whole new generation. The group eventually achieved worldwide popularity in the 1990s off the back of their slew of anthemic singles such as 'Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)' and 'Come Out and Play', and return with a new album in 2016.
This seasoned punk rock act are still going strong and are set to play a string of UK live dates in the next few months, with old tour buddies Bad Religion tagging along as a A-grade support act. Be the first in line to see this chaotic crew perform their catalogue of hits old and new when you pick up The Offspring tickets on StubHub.
The Offspring - Pretty Fly White Guys Still Going Strong
This Huntingdon Beach band released their debut single in 1986 on their own label, concentrating their sarcastic, often hilarious lyrics on personal relationships and the degradation of American politics. Within a couple of years, they had been snapped up by a small record company and were touring with other like-minded bands such as NOFX, Pennywise and Rancid, who shared their love of visceral, heavy meal inflected punk rock. The movement fast acquired a cult following, and The Offspring became one of the pioneering bands of the California's thriving second wave punk rock scene.
Although their early records helped them acquire a massive presence in the underground punk passage, their third album Smash (1994) went six times platinum and is counted as one of the most successful independent records of all time, cited as bringing punk pop to the mainstream. Tracks like 'Original Prankster', 'Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)' and 'Want You Bad' became stone cold classics across the globe, pushing albums like Americana (1998) and Conspiracy of One (2000) in the upper echelons of the charts. This brilliant band celebrated the 20th anniversary of the release of Smash in 2014, and recent single 'Coming for You' shows they've lost none of their spiky appeal. They'll perform their unmistakable catalogue of hits for UK fans as part of their 2016 tour, so don't miss out on your chance to see the punk rock legends live - grab The Offspring tickets on StubHub today.
