Who the hell is Offsring??


The Offspring are underrated when it comes to some of the other bands that get all the airplay though.

I think that a "big" fan of AC/DC, Pennywise or every other band you can name thinks the same about their favourite band...

Well, right now, they are. When everyone looks at punk rock these days, they all look at Green Day. Truth is though, The Offspring has been if anything just as successful as Green Day, two mega-hit albums (GD had Dookie/AI, Offspring had Smash/Americana). And right now, when people talk about any sort of punk (whether it be punk rock, pop punk, or punk-influenced bands), they keep advertising the generic pop punk copies rather than The Offspring, who've been veterans for a while.

So The Offspring is underrated and Green Day is overrated? Is that the point?
Off course The Offs are better than Green Day but can't we just end this whole TO/GD fight? It makes The Offspring fans sound a bit like douchebags who can't appreciate anything else but The Offspring.

You're right, maybe they really are a bit underrated. But hey, that way we know, that The Offspring are listened by the real fans who like their music, and not by some n00basses who would like them only because they would think that they are cool if they like the band.

I agree, they're definately underrated.

Thats why i think this album will do well for them, because its different.

It seems to me that a lot of the critical reviews are written by people who are fans of their OLDER stuff, theres a lot of comparisons to the older albums and people saying "oh its not like smash..." or whatever. So i think this will hopefully improve their ratings in other 'crowds', but i think that a small minority of 'hardcore' fans may not be that satisfied with that album, especially as a lot of the hype before the album was focusing on Hammerhead, the Trust In You riff and such, which were pretty old school, punkish tracks.

punk music in general is underrated...
i know their new album isn't tru punx :rolleyes: but it does have a good radio feel with a punk edge.

highly under rated in Australia, I dont get it though, when they tour here they pull massive crowds in all cities, but Ive never actually met another offspring fan outside of their gigs.
