It was 20 years ago today (June 15th) that The Offspring's self-titled debut album originally came out. I can't believe that it's been out for that long, even though in 1989, there weren't that many people that knew The Offspring very well, until Smash came out and that was 5 years later.

Coincidentally, the record even came out a month before I was born, and it came out on Ice Cube, the rapper's birthday (Ice Cube would later be mentioned in "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)" from Americana).

I'm glad that The Offspring's been making more music since and I support the band and their music very well. Many cheers and happy anniversary to The Offspring (the album)!

lol, thanks for those factoids Alex.

But yeah, 20 years is a long time in Rock N Roll. Not many bands can say they've lasted that long.

I remember back in 2003 I asked Noodles a question in the "Ask An Offspring Member a Question" forum (this was in the webdude era) about where he saw The Offspring in ten years time. He replied, "In 10 years we'll all be fat, bloated, and broke."

Obviously this doesn't look like it's going to happen, especially if a new album is might drop next year. :D

(BTW, yes.. I know he was joking.)

I lol'd when I first read the post, but then I saw for myself that it's true. You are much younger than I thought.

So, you were born the same year the Baghdad EP was released? It was from '91.
