The logo is almost exactly the same as The Offspring's original S/T Cover:

This is strange.
The artwork is exactly the same, and the film has the tagline ''they were born to kill'', just like the record.

I think we've discussed this a couple times in years past. I think they saw the movie cover and were inspired by it.

I've downloaded this movie week or three ago, but I got rid of it because of the poor acting...

that's the movie from which Ron Welty came up with the idea to change their name from manic subsidal to the offspring.There's the cover of the movie somewhere with this old house and the offspring logo with the same fonts as the s/t album

Do you think this is where they got the name from, or just the artwork?

Is that image on the 7" cover a rip from something in the film, maybe?

Yeah thats the cover of the movie that I know.In an interview many years ago (I dont remember exactly when)Dexter said that Ron came up with the idea of the name The Offspring about that period. If we compare the fonts and the monster thing, I think the movie inspired Ron.Regarding the new cover of the re-issued version Dexter said that they changed it because a lot of people were talking about similarity to the monster of the Alien movie.Anyway I hope for a remastered version of the album with the original artwork (and kill the president like the '95 re-issue)

But TWBTK is not an official Offsping release.

Wow, what a curious thing ah?

I found this http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091671/ but it doesnt mention if it inspired the band name or something similar. Some years ago I read something about a movie and the origin of the name Offspring. Maybe it is true after all.

This is pretty well known isn't it? I remember this being posted on the old Americana board and must have been posted a couple of times afterwards, it must be in the archives here too.

I can just see'm cutting and copying that with pencils, now people just download fonts and images of the internets and load'm in word and photoshop.

Oh yeah, it doesn't actually say Ron came up with it, just how they got around to suddenly changing it. I must've confused it with the bit right after where it says Ron convinced them to ditch James. :P

"We were recording this cable TV show called Media Blitz and we decided to change our name then. We couldn't think of anything, and we final settled on the Offspring because it was the only name we didn't all hate. Our old drummer James actually made it up."

:cool:

ps. someone must have this cable TV show somewhere......... itd be the best quality old shit ever.
