There was a horror movie in 1987 called the offspring. Is it just me, or does anyone else see that the artist who did the self-titles ep sleeve art must have seen this movie?(or at least the box?) If you look, the two logos are eerily similar. freaky huh?

it's true. It was obviously ripped off by the artist for the sp. the band probably doesn't even know about it. and a thread on a screen can't be gay, only you can be gay.

the second pic was actually the offspring's original album art. there was only 500 released and my friend has one. plus that album with the alien guitar thing came out in 1989, and that movie came out '87. they were around before then, but no albums, so that's where they got their script for their name on the debut record.

Look at the Letters, its clearly "the same" letters, and why is it such a bad thing to rip off a movie poster?

the only difference is that the word "the" isn't inside the "o" in the album art.

the offspring used the old cover art for the movie for their first ep. they got the idea from it....they didnt "rip off" anything

That's cool... I didn't even know there was a movie called the offspring. Anybody seen it? What's it like? Children of the corn?
