I'm not sure if this has been mentioned here, but an article on houstonpress.com is mentioning this:

"Are you aware that The Offspring, Orange County's pre-eminent metal-tinged punk rock band, has been active since 1984? That's 25 years, yo: Three more years than Green Day has been around, and those guys are dinosaurs.

And what's weirder, even though they have some qualities that you'd think would make them immediately hatable lead singer Dexter Holland is a white guy who temporarily wore shoulder-length braids and has a master's in molecular biology from USC they've been cool for most of that time."
