A few points here.


If it came from U-G.com or Dying Scene, you may as well take it to mean the opposite.
If it's not on Offspring.com, it's not official.
The article quoted says it's highly unlikely they would be inducted in their first year of eligibility, but leads off saying it's happening. This sort of cognitive dissonance should be a red flag.

All of the vague, noncommittal phrasing gives it away as BS.

1. The question mark in the title.

2. "According to Idioteq.com, talks about The Offspring being inducted into next year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are apparently underway."


3. "Although not affiliated with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the website Future Rock Legends says that The Offspring are being eligible for induction into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 and will be present at the 2014 Induction Ceremony."


4. "If the event were to happen..."

I think not. At least not before other major acts within the alternative music scene that had more of a significant impact on music as a whole, like Black Flag, Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Sonic Youth, Nirvana (especially) Social Distortion, The Pixies, Minutemen, Bad Religion, the list goes on. The Offspring had some impact, having the most commercially successful album on an independent label, but in terms of impact on today's modern music the bands listed above have done more than the Offspring.

It took them forever to induct Patti Smith and The Stooges. Who honestly thinks they'll induct the "Pretty Fly" guys in their first year of eligibility?

offspring have sold more records then all those bands excluding nirvana and smash is the best selling independent album of all time so i think they should go in one day

but nirvana definitely should go in before them and black flag should go in before offspring in my opinion

I would be pretty surprised if this happens. But you better believe I'd be at the ceremony if it did.

Yeah I don't think it's gonna happen, regardless of whether or not I think it should.

Yea I doubt that The Offspring will be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at all. If i'm proven other wise cool. But I doubt it and honestly wouldnt care if they never are.

Sorry to bump this thread, but I just saw a Facebook page that says "Help Elect The Offsping to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Page".

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Help-Elect-The-Offsping-to-the-Rock-and-Roll-Hall-Of-Fame-Page/149462835139014

Also, I saw two sources that say The Offspring will be inducted in 2014, which I hope happens.

Just realized that I meant to say "eligible" instead of "inducted".

First what are the requirements to be inducted into the rock & roll hall of fame?

Secondly I thought everyone here were Offspring fans, and would want & support the Offspring getting into the Rock & Roll hall of fame.

I have been pushing this for awhile. Although I believe it will not happen, I strongly believe it should.

And I will be in Ohio the day it does.

Not entirely certain the exact requirements, but I do know that a band becomes eligible after existing for at least 30 years. Again, I may be wrong, but I'm somewhat sure of that point.

25 years since first album was released, the how much influence the artist have on rock & roll.
I did see on an alternate webpage that The Offspring were being considered. Its not to late for them.

Some inductees have been inducted more an once. I will pray, hope and wish for the Offspring to be inducted.

Alright, so The Offspring hasn't been nominated this year, but then again, who cares? When LL Cool J is eligible of being in the same conversation as Elvis Presely, it really doesn't say much about the management of the Hall of Fame. Still a big honor, though (despite being completely broken).

Also, the qualification for this year is the band having released their first single/album in 1988 or before. While it's Nirvana's first year of eligibility, The Offspring would have been first eligible two years ago. Unless I'm reading into this wrong.

Who knows when The Offspring will get inducted? They might, maybe some years later or so. Black Sabbath didn't officially get inducted until 2006.

I'd be stoked too, but I doubt they'll be inducted next year.

I'm fine with knowing that they'll make it someday. Even now, Smash and Americana are classic albums in the realm of 90s pop punk. Though they'll probably be an "oldie" band by the time the HoF actually wises up.

Unfortunately, The Offspring will not be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year.
