i see a bunch of influence from the offspring in AFI .. i can't really point out a certain thing, though.

I see a ton... though it depends on what AFI album you look at. AFI has always been very into copying the bands they tour with for their albums... STS sounds nothing like the offspring.

Blink was influenced.. not on music, not in style, but in a relative punk way

Being influenced by a band and showing a bands influence in your music are 2 insanly different things people.

liking a band is not the same as being influenced by them...

To narrow this a little and make it a little more accessible and worthwhile, bands that have MENTIONED an admiration for and influence by The Offspring include:

AFI
Bodyjar
Silverchair
Sum 41
Something Corporate
Avenged Sevenfold
Save Ferris
Reel Big Fish
The Aquabats
The Living End


About all I can think of at the moment, but there bands that have specifically SAID in interviews that they're fans and have been affected by them as a band.

Sum 41. Many songs on album "All Killer, No Filler" and "Does This Look Infected?" sound like Offspring songs. When I heard the main riff from "Still Waiting" on the radio for the first time, I tought it is a new Offspring song.

Noodles mentioned in a journal a few years ago that some of the members of Simple Plan found "Ignition" an amazing inspiration.

I don't think the Offspring has really made any big difference in music.

I don't either :P

sum 41, I can definitely hear the influences in "does this look infected?" surprised that something corporate likes them... I'm definitely a SC fan :)

simple plan is disgusting :eek:

Something corporate suck just as much as Simple plan.

Pop punk posers and whiney long haired emo rock kids don't go down well for me.

Yeah, they like, only paved the way for punk and pop punk bands to get more airplay and become a huge genre of music.

something corporate are not pop punk nor are they long haired emo kids.

there is no element of punk or emo in their sound, and none of the members have long hair. I don't care if you don't like them, but they don't fall into either of those categories at all...

and neocon58: First of all, The Clash and The Ramones did that, not the offspring. The offspring (and green day) accidentally paved the way for SHITTY pop punk music to get airply. Second of all, I think mainstreaming punk is a bad thing, because that's the opposite of what punk is about.

Haha, I kind of find that a funny approach of looking at it. Might just be true aswell.

I do think Offspring made it easier for any kind of punk band (of any genre; poppunk/punkrock/emo/whatever) to get some more recognition. It's just too bad that, indeed, mostly the shitty bands are the bands that make it to the top.

i dont think bandsa are influenced by them in the same way nowadays you get loads of bands sounding like green day for example! they kinda have a quite unique sound in their own way!

Who said anything about liking Something Corporate and A Simple Plan?

All I added to the conversation was that they're among a list of bands who've listed them as inspirations in both press interviews and at shows.

:rolleyes:
