My brother in law is a crazy huge offspring fan (but im biggger xD) we're both FROM Santa Cruz,California (go check out the biography to see where some of the first offspring shows played at xD) Anyways he told me in the 90's and early 00's when they weren't touring they would play under a different band name at small clubs, and I asked around I heard from a couple other people they used to do that a lot, so what do you make of this?

I have never heard of them doing that. They are probably thinking of when they were known as Manic Subsidal.

Never heard about this. Do you know which name they used, if they really play in small clubs with another name ?

And when they (maybe) play in these small clubs, do they play their Offspring's songs, or are they covering other bands ?

I think that there's only people from California or the Offspring themselves, who could tell us if it's true or not.

they're a bunch of jokers, so i can imagine this being at least slightly possible. however, i cannot imagine this staying under wraps for more than 7 years without any of us having heard it before. people in socal know what the offspring look and sound like, theres no way this could stay a secret.

I heard they once played at a school Halloween dance or something like that. Dexter apparently got his head ripped off. I have it on tape somewhere.

That's from the movie "Idle Hands." It's really great.

Foo Fighters have been known to do this a few times. Change their name to play at a small venue. They're called "Secret Shows".

But it's not likely Offspring would do this, plus we'd have heard about it already by some source of information if they had.

By the way ZagmenO... He was being sarcastic :)

I don't think that could be possible and less in 2000. I mean they're much famous to not be recognised in California. I could believe if you have been said in 1995 for example, but not in 2000.

I love Omni's sarcasm. :p

Err, and you're saying the band wouldn't have been recognised in 1995? The year after Smash? Are you fucking delusional?

But yes, they have done this sort of thing occasionally. There have been a few reports like this over the years, but it's damn rare for them to do it.

Until more concrete evidence arises, I'm gonna call bullshit on this one.

I'll ask around some more I'll call a couple of the clubs and ask if they know anything

You're thinking of the Detox Rockers. It's okay, it happens all the time.

It does sound just like a rumor to me, I think they're too famous for it to go completely unnoticed.

it definately would have been announced if they had done something like that! although it would be interesting if they had been doing secret shows for all this time!

They done a secret show in london in like 2004 im sure. But it was under their actual name

Well, I can imagine that they'd play small venues with limited tickets, but as said, they are far too well-known to play under a diffrent name and not get the attention they usually do...
