"The Offspring are well known for their energetic live performances. The band has sparked controversy in the past. In 2001 while touring Australia with guest band 28 Days, 28 Days claimed that The Offspring used a backstage singer to cover up Dexter's flaws. However there has been no other evidence to support that claim."

i got this text from wikipedia

has anyone ever noticed this text? i am big offspring-fan, but i dinīt know about this rumour. btw: i think itīs a lie.

big deal so maybe dex can't sing like...... hmm who CAN sing nowadyas???

there's a very respected (popular is not a good word) punk band in poland, and the lead singer can't sing at all. but it's all about the lyrics, the music and the energy. same with offy.

if you went to the source for that line on the wiki article, the band 28 days, sounded like a bunch of bitter twats, they were crying because the offspring wouldn't share catering

lies!!!
they always used some arrangements like in original prankster, million miles away, bad habit, etc- but dexter always sings, and if he didn't, well, maybe that's because he needed to jump, get crazy, give energy to his show. i forgive him.

my thoughts exactly :-P and how would that work, anyway? Does he sing along with dexter? or just start singing when dexter screws up? when you hear the band live, dexter screws up plenty... that guy back stage must be a waste of money :-P

there's tons of clips with dex forgetting words. and when he stops, the vocals stop. it's horse shit imo. they were probably talking about how the offspring have 3 extra stage musicians, that sometimes do backing vox and aren't always visible on stage.

bitter ballsacks if you ask me.

The person singing backstage was probably someone singing along because they were enjoying the band but not singing into a microphone or anything.

ĄĄĄBULL~SHIT!!!

he may have other singers but so what? sometimes even noodles makes the choruses with him. Everytime you hear "Rumour/s", be sure it isn't true, less if you hear "I saw this in wikipedia"
