I have checked out this forum and noticed that a lot of people ask the same questions over and over, not to mention I've seen about 984659345738945 "i luv dextr!" threads! Here now are answers to your questions and the threads that have to stop!

How did Noodles get his name?
He won't say for sure. Stories vary from being called "Noodles" by producer Thom Wilson while recording S/T, to eating nothing but Top Ramen noodles for over 10 years, to playing Baby Noodles in "Pink Flamingoes" (a search at the Internet Movie Database proved this to be false).

Where can I find a picture of Dexter's wife?
You can see her in the video for "I Choose." She is the frontmost flight attendant.

Are they married?
They are all married. Sorry, ladies.

Do they have any kids?
Dexter has a daughter, Noodles has a daughter and a son, Greg has three sons, and Ron has a son. I'm not sure about Atom yet.

Why did Ron leave?
Ron left to pursue another project—Steady Ground—after a breakdown in his relationship with his bandmates. He wasn't fired or forced out at all.

Does Dexter have a Ph.D?
Not yet.

When will Offspring play in (insert country or city here) again?
Check the Tour page on the official site.

Who's that little guy that runs around onstage?
Chris Higgins (X-13).

How come they don't do INTERMISSION anymore?
Because they got tired of people liking the silly and goofy stuff more than the songs themselves.

What is "Gone Away" about?
The big rumor is that the biological mother of his daughter was killed in a car crash sometime between 1988 and 1991. Whether or not this person was his girlfriend, fiancée, or wife can vary. However, this is nothing more than rumor at the present time since none of this has been confirmed. Dexter does not like to talk about the subject matter of this song and out of respect, I don't speculate on it.

Did AFI cover Offspring?
Actually, the Offspring covered AFI's "Totalimmortal" for the soundtrack to the Jim Carrey movie "Me, Myself & Irene."

What's "Idle Hands?
"Idle Hands" is a horror-comedy movie from 1999 starring Devon Sawa, Seth Green, and Elden Hansen. The Offspring make an appearance in the movie as The Band, before the Band Lead Singer (Dexter) is killed.

How can I meet the Offspring?
A lot of people here have met them. SEARCH for a thread about meeting the Offspring to find out how they've been able to do so.

What's Offspring's relation to:
• AFI
• Rancid
• Pennywise
• TSOL
AFI were signed to Dexter's Nitro label before leaving for Dreamworks (now dissolved into Interscope) in 2001. Both bands are on good terms despite AFI's uneasiness with the Anthology CD Nitro released (no word on lawsuits… yet).

Rancid is a band on Epitaph that the Offspring toured with in 1994. Both bands are still friends. Contrary to popular rumor, Noodles from the Offspring and Lars from Rancid are not brothers.

Pennywise is another Epitaph band that is good friends with the Offspring. Frontman Jim Lindberg has done guest vocals onAmericana and Splinter.

TSOL is the Offspring's biggest influence. The original line-up (with a new drummer) reunited and signed to Nitro.

Who has the biggest dick?
Honestly, must this even be addressed here? It depends on which rumors you hear. I've heard 'em all and am not gonna touch 'em with a 10' clown pole! I don't know and I don't really want to know.

When are their birthdays?
Dexter: December 29, 1965 (both Higgins and Noodles have confirmed this.)
Greg: January 20, 1965
Noodles: February 4, 1963
Ron: February 1, 1971
Atom: August 15, 1973

What are their real names?
Dexter: Bryan Keith Holland
Greg: Gregory David Kriesel
Noodles: Kevin Wasserman
Ron: Ronald S. Welty
Atom: Adam Willard

What is the Special Goodness?
The Special Goodness is Atom's other band with Weezer drummer Pat Wilson. If you like the Offspring and you like Weezer, TSG is worth checking out:
http://www.thespecialgoodness.com

What is this "Next to You" song? Where can I find it?
It's a hidden track. If you have the CD, let "(Can't Get My) Head Around You" finish but don't stop the song. At 3:15 into the track, you'll hear "Next to You." If you have the DualDisc and are watching the DVD side, go to the songlist and scroll down to (CGM)HAY, then hit LEFT ARROW to highlight the skull logo and hit ENTER.

What is "Mission from God?"
This was a song initially recorded for Ignition thaat didn't make it onto the album. You can find it on Punk-O-Rama 10.

What time does Offspring play at Warped Tour?
It's determined the day of the show, anywhere between 12:00 noon and 8:30 PM.

How can I meet Offspring at Warped?
Sometimes they have Meet-n-Greets. I've also heard that hanging out by the stage can help. Either way, keep your eyes open and be in the right place at the right time.

Why Did they Leave Epitaph?
They Felt that Brett Gurewitz was trying to sell them out by offering contracts that mean He could sell the music to anyone he likes and stopping them Doing Covers and the like. So they ironically moved to Columbia to remain more independent and do what they liked. They always wanted to support indie labels but They felt that epitaph was becoming just as bad as Commercial label. They are however good friend still with most Epitaph bands and personel.

Where Can I find all their rarities and B-sides to download/Buy?
99% of them can be found on various sites of which these are the most popular
Tis Site is in Polish but is very easy to navigate (http://www.offspring.art.pl)

No. The Offspring have never Written any TV Theme Tunes

Who Writes The Songs/lyrics/music?
Dexter Mostly Write the entrie song then they will play it and finalise it together although it has be known that other members will write an entrie song such as D.U.I. Was writen By Noodles

Why the Name 'The Offspring'?
No One Really Knows the Reason Behind the name. However it is true that they Were Originally called 'Manic Subsidal' Until The Name Change in 1986. And it is true that they changed becase Manic Subsidal was hard to remember People thought it was Manic Suicidal. Some say they named themselves after The Desendents. Others say they got their name from a horror movie called "The Offspring." Neither of these stories have been confirmed but no other reasons for the name Offspring has been given.

WTF?! Why isn't [insert song here] on GH? Why nothing from the first two albums???
The band decided what songs to put on there. If you don't like it, make your own damn greatest-hits CD! Just don't sell it to people.

Why Doesn't my version of [Insert Album/single] Have [Insert Song/Extra] On it?
The reason for this is that some albums/singles contain bonus/additional/hidden tracks and can vary by area/country/continent/time dependancy.

Is Noodles really gay?
Uhh… no. He was just playing along with some dumb comments people were making about him.

Why doesn't my DualDisk CD side Work Properly?
Its because the CD Side has to be thinner than Red Book CDs and so the pits are shallower leaving higher error rates. Also since DualDisc is thinker than a standard CD or DVD, it may not load in slot-loading devices.

See this article Here (http://stereophile.com/asweseeit/105awsi/) for more information

Do they smoke?
They all do to a certain degree. Noodles is the only one who is a habitual smoker.

And please refrain from making the following threads without doing a SEARCH first:
- What's your favorite album?
- What's your favorite song?
- Do you prefer Ron or Atom?
- How many times ave you seen the Offspring?

Refrain from the following topics altogether, or face old-school-fan-styley wrath:
- Anything about the band members' personal lives (this includes wanting pictures of their wives!)
- OMG I LUV U DEXTER! I WANT UR BABY!!!
- Which hairstyle do you prefer?
- Who's hotter?
- DEXTER PLZ REPLY I LUV U!!!111!!1!!1!
- Noodles!!! Over here!!!
- Who's your favorite member?
- Anything comparing Green Day and the Offspring

Oh, and if you're posting something in English, please use proper spelling and grammar.

Gotta bump this up again as we have even more FAQs and annoying threads. So please, in addition to those already listed, refrain from starting the following threads, or face the wrath of the older fans:

What's this I hear about a greatest-hits ablum? When will it be released?
There is a lot of buzz about the Offspring releasing a greatest-hits album sometime in 2005. The official site will have confirmed information.

No more of these threads, please!!!

As for the whole Dick thing, if you want Noodles side of the rumour its Greg.

07-02-2005, 09:47 AM
Also Atom is married, 99.9% sure he doesn't have kids yet.
If you want to know about the penis sizes of the Offspring, you are a god damn pervert, and also search is very useful, but the small minded have difficulty finding it.

You are talking about the person that can come up with 500 different reasons that he is nick named Noodles. Don't take any of it as gospel, and as for who knows the truth, the man himself. And maybe even his band mates are lucky enough to know it.

hmm, regarding the offspring/dexter and afi, i wouldn't be so sure of that, based on what my "sources" tell me. i don't think they're friends anymore, that's for sure. it seemed to me that dexter took a shot at davey in the latest issue of alt press (the davey/parasol thing).

i think it should also be mentioned (if it wasn't already, i didn't read every single post in the thread) that dexter's wife, kristine, was NOT a member of the band the lunachicks, who broke up a few years back.

yes, dexter was born in 1965, not '66. my sources have matched up with leo's extensive research to determine this fact, which we have argued about for years on the various incarnations of this board. :rolleyes:

I believe Dexter wasn't taking a shot at Davey at all. At the 2001 Warped Tour Davey was indeed walking around with a parasol. He admired Davey for having the guts to do that.

Thank you for noting that. I'm surprised that this isn't common knowledge by now.

I agree w/Leo on the parasol thing.

Ohh...don't remind me that the Lunachicks are no more...makes me tear up just thinking about it...... :(

Why Doesn't my version of [Insert Album/single] Have [Insert Song/Extra] On it?

The Reason for this is that Some Albums/Singles contain Bonus/Additional/Hidden tracks and can vary by Area/Country/Continent/Time dependancy.
Singles are particularly Variable
E.g.

CO1 outside North American had the Bonus track Huck It (Japan had even more such as Defy you and All I want (live) If im not mistaken)
The S/T had Kill The President on the vinyl anad pre 2001 CD but not Post 2001.

Plus Various singles

Eg In the UK they were 2 versions of Want You Bad, One Had 80 Times and TKKA Live The other had All I want Live and Autonomy.

The lsit goes on if you want all the tracks Properly You will likely have to buy 2 version of a single and/or And import of the album. Failing that Download them from the sites mentioned above.

PLease make this a Separate STICKY FAQ Entitled
"READ First if you have a question, The Offspring FAQs"

Casue we just has a new member ask all the question in this faq wher eone read is enough and he wouldnt have had to ask them again.

Copy paste if you have to. OR Hyperlink.

Because having it hidden in the Discussion guidelines isnt obvious enough.

IT needs to be an obvious FAQ Thread.

Warped Tour (Should be in TOUR section)

And For the Next to You FAQ can you say that for the UK/Euro release it starts at the 5:55 Mark of track 15 After the TKKA Remix

its interesting its all the 5s and the US version its interesting that is 3:15 cause on a clock 15 minutes past is when the minute hand points to the 3.

Since Leo is doing compiling a Sticky with a Hyperlink is good enough but it needs to be an obvious New Thread. ie. one for rules and one for the FAQs

And I'll Continue to add any other Questions that I see a lot, If Leo can edit them into the first post.

Why Do Certain Countries get DualDisk and others Get CD +DVD?

DualDisk is Only Standard in North American (maybe Aus aswell not sure)
But has not become a Standard in Europe and other Continents yet.
So Other Countries get CD + DVD instead. Note the DVD on the GH is the same as the Dual Disk DVD but Maybe regioned or PAL instead of NTSC.

No They Didn't and haven't done a cover either. It was originally done by The Buggles and Covered by Presidents Of The USA. The Rumour about them doing it is Becasue a File SHaring/Pier to Pier (P2P) program like Limewire had misinformation.

It would be handy indeed. But I think the way this thread is set up, it's kind of confusing. You have to read the whole thread to see if your question may have been answered. If they put it all in the first post, and just edit that one whenever they want to add something, we could sticky it I guess.

The sticky topics in this forum are to answer frequently asked questions. It is best if you read them if you are new so you are repeating old topics and don't get a barrage of abuse for posting something that has been done before.
Since this is a forum for The Offspring, and this is the on topic section, it makes sense to have some general info on the guys that people new and old may be interested in. And prevents annoying repeat topics.

There is no confirmation of this in any other media source, so it cannot be verified as true. I have never heard this until this year. My conclusion: regard it as nothing more than a dumb rumor.

EDIT: Once the Warped Tour is done the first post will be updated to reflect the latest DVD release. Until then:

Are there any Easter Eggs on the new DVD?
Easter Eggs are hidden extras that are not listed among a DVD's features. So far, 3 such Easter Eggs have been found, all of which are hidden in the "Discography:"
1. Old home-video footage from the 1980s: Select 'The Offspring' and hit the LEFT BUTTON to highlight a hidden BACK button and hit ENTER.
2. "Hit That" by a Japanese marching band: Select 'Splinter' and then hit the RIGHT BUTTON to select a video, then hit the LEFT BUTTON to select the statue in the album art and hit ENTER.
3. Video footage of "Get It Right" performed at a show in the early 1990s: Select 'Greatest Hits' and then hit the RIGHT BUTTON to select a music video, then LEFT BUTTON to highlight the eyes on the album artg and hit ENTER.

I hope this makes sense.
