Alot of people have said that since Americana, the guys havent been like they where in their first 4 albums. So really, I was interested to know if you guys think the band is punk, not punk or a mixture of punk and not punk. Also, please state what you think the band is if you say they arent punk.

Personally, I still think they are punk. I dont know WHAT people are talking about when they say that after Americana, they became pop-punk. Have You Ever, Staring at the Sun, TKAA, Feelings, End of the Line, No Breaks, Americana and Pay the Man are all punk. That leaves only a few that are not punk.

With the release of CO1, the whole album was punk with the exceptions of Original Prankster and Want You Bad. And with Splinter, Worst Hangover Ever and Spare Me The Details are basically the only not punk songs on the disc.

With all of that, I have come to conclude that the Offspring are a punk band.

Hope you read it and give me your oppinions.

I don't know what punk is, but I don't like it. I don't even like the way it sounds. I label the Offspring "Not punk."

I think they're a mix of both. They have some punk songs and some not punk songs

I think that all the offspring songs are punk with the exception of a few singles:
Americana - Pretty Fly, Get a Job, She's got issues (pop-punk)
CO1 - Original Prankster, Want You Bad (pop-punk)
Splinter - Hit That, Spare me the details, Worst Hangover Ever

Some of you have said that Americana is Offspring's the most not-punk-album (whatever..), but Americana contains one of the world's best punk song:The Kids Aren't Alright :D

Americana has plenty of great punk rock songs, except for the singles (not KAA).

I see the offspring as being an awesome punk-pop-ska-rock band. They write awesome catchy music, but it seriously cannot be described as pure punk.

hmm all their albums have been punk rock with the exception of a couple of songs, which would make me label them as punk rock

Offspring has changed the face of Punk Rock Music as we know it, and anyone who would say different is stupid, especially to be posting on the bands official website.

its all punk rock ... very good punk rock! punk was bands such as the clash, sex pistols and maybe bands such as black flag and the misfits to some extent! so i wanna vote its punk rock!

i consider the offspring to be punk! although they dont really claim to be and say that punk music was what influenced them to start id still say they fall into the punk catergory but mainly due to their back catalogue rather than the last 2 albums!

if it's The Offspring, then it is definitely punk - and if it's punk then it's The Offspring ! lol

They are, have always been, and always will be a punk band. They are a punk band through and through, that will never cease to be true.

What's the difference? Their music is the same even you call it punk or not.

Some people say that punks can't play guitar ... noodles can :P I would say that Splinter is not as punk as first album but is it wrong?
