Offspring live at The Brixton Academy , London.
16 Sept 2005

The last year has been a pretty quiet one for Offspring or maybe it appears that way after their American punk rock chums Green Day have taken all the glory.

The need not worry of course what with over 30 million albums sold and two sold out Brixton Academy shows on this current UK tour.

From the start it is pogo a go go as the kids down front jump around to every song. Does not seem to matter than Offsprings founder members Noodles and Dexter are old enough to be the fathers of most of the crowd in here tonight. Catchy simple pop punks it is what we get from Offspring like " Smash" and "Original Prankster " and the heat in the building is getting hotter and hotter as sweat covered teenagers really let their hair down.

Best songs of the night were stunning versions of " Why Dont You Get A Job" and "Pretty Fly For A White Guy" which like most of set in on their current "Greatest Hits " album .

After a fast and furious 80 mins it was all over but enjoyable it certainly was.

i find pop-punk as a connection of pop-music and punk which offspring is not.
i know punk is popular but when metallica was super popular did that mean it was pop-metal? no.

It was the best show I'd seen them in, I've seen them 3 times and I'm only 16 Marc..but you're wrong with the best songs..

Self Esteem, Kids Aren't Alright, All I Want and Staring at the Sun were by far the best and without a doubt had the best moshing id ever seen at the academy!
