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: "All I Want," "Gone Away," and "I Choose." The video for "I Choose" was directed by Holland himself. Dexter commented that Ixnay probably wasn't as well-received as Smash was because it was such a departure, and that many fans probably were expecting Smash Part Two.[19]
In 1998, 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 and making the album the peak of The Offspring's mainstream popularity.^ Following the success of the single “Hammerhead” and its follow-up “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid,” The Offspring remain a favorite on the airwaves with “Kristy, Are You Doing Okay?,” the band’s third radio hit from their latest Columbia Records release Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace .

Maybe a couple of demos here and there. But we're looking at old songs and seeing if we could flesh those out."[40]
In a June 2009 interview with Billboard, Noodles stated that Holland and producer Bob Rock "kinda went over a couple of things that were left off the last record" and "songs that were even left off Splinter or maybe even Conspiracy of One and kind of looked at some things with free eyes and see if there was anything there that can be worked on." He also stated that he would like to have the new album out in 2010, but the band wasn't likely to hit the studio until January. Asked in the interview if drummer Pete Parada will be involved in the recording process, Noodles replied, "He's great. We haven't actually done any real recording with him yet, but we're looking forward to that. He's a great drummer. He's got great ideas, just really on top of things. Nothing fazes him; we'll throw something at him, 'Hey, do this,' and, 'OK...' .He's a really nice guy and just a real powerhouse drummer, so we're looking forward to working with him."^ Have a really good product, not just a me-too or nice to have, but something game changing that people need.

Style and influences

.While The Offspring is primarily considered a pop punk/punk rock group, their music contains strong elements of 1980s American hardcore punk, 1990s grunge, and the occasional ska.^ A pesar de que básicamente son una banda de punk y de rock alternativo incorporan muchos estilos como ska, grunge, hard rock y heavy metal entre otros.

^ Toujours plus aventuriers, cette fois les Offspring combinent le punk avec du ska et du hard rock.
  • ]|I{•------»Dicdic«------•}I|[ - Windows Live 20 November 2009 7:32 UTC team-29.spaces.live.com [Source type: Academic]

^ The Offspring es una de las bandas punk rock más exitosas de la historia con alrededor de 40 millones de discos vendidos.

.A signature style of The Offspring is their chorused "whoas", "heys", or "yeahs". NOFX has poked fun at them for this in their song "Whoa on the Whoas". 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 and society in general, with songs like "It'll Be a Long Time", "Americana" and, more recently "Stuff Is Messed Up". The lyrics generally reflect a sarcastic viewpoint, which can at times be offensive to some.^ With that said, some of the best companies have generated in worst of times.

^ Build relationships with others who could introduce you to funders - like start-up lawyers.

^ The range of what is considered a medical device has expanded in the last ten years, and will likely expand more going forward.

.This is acknowledged in the first track of their album "Ixnay on the Hombre", "Disclaimer". Like "Disclaimer", the first track of most of The Offsprings albums are an introduction of some sort, Smash's "Time to Relax", or Americana's "Welcome" are also examples of this.^ Fifteen years after its release, their 1994 release Smash remains the highest-selling album of all time on an independent label.

History

The band was founded by Dexter Holland and Greg Kriesel after a concert of Social Distortion as "Manic Subsidal". As soon as Kevin "Noodles" Wassermann joined the band as their second guitarist in 1985, they changed their name to "The Offspring".

It would not be until ten years after forming that The Offspring saw its first piece of commercial success in its third album, Smash, which was released in 1994. Regarded by many as The Offspring's classic release, and Epitaph Records' best-selling album, Smash produced four successful hit singles: "Come Out and Play" (which reached #1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart), "Self Esteem", "Gotta Get Away" and the radio-only single "Bad Habit". From there, The Offspring became one of the most important punk bands of the 1990s, along with ALL, Bad Religion, Face to Face, Green Day, Guttermouth, Lagwagon, NOFX, Pennywise, Rancid, Social Distortion, The Vandals, and many others.

Their most recent album was released in June 2008. The exact date of release depended on the country/region.
