I didn't really make this thread so I can get a ton of people replying back saying "no you're the jackass you filthy ho", I made this thread because I want to know the truth about Dexter. Jackass or not?

The reason why I'm bringing this up is because a while ago, I remember my friend said that her ex-boyfriend's best friend was Dexter Holland's cousin and he said that he didn't like Dexter because he acted like a jerk most of the times.

Do you guys have any stories about Dexter being mean? He always seems really nice to the fans, but aww... I remember one time, while I was listening to this Offspring bootleg, Dexter wanted this one girl to jump off the stage and crowd stuff. Well I guess she did it really crappy, so Dexter was making fun of her and stuff.

maybe he just pretends to be mean. but actually I believe that the true Dexter is a nice dude. much like Noodles. except Noodles' behavior is sarcastic, not mean.

oh man, one time I saw him on the street and I said "Hey! Dexter!" He then glanced at me and I said "Can I get your autograph?" So he then came running at me, and I expected for him to sign a paper I was taking out. But, instead he takled me into a car and took off running. Long story short, I got his autograph, so he's not a jackass. :D

No. that's why I put the :D after it. Because it was a joke.

dude you need to make it more obvious. but actually with an avatar such as yours no one would expect you to be serious.

actually, if you were here longer, that post would've been so obvious that you wouldn't have any doubts about it being a joke. Almost every time I make a joke, the :D is there. And, when I'm serious, the posts are usually long and without a :D.

Yeah I already know that dexter is really nice to his fans and everything. What I want to know is what he is like when fans aren't around? Maybe Noodles could answer this question, but I doubt it. Well, I was just wondering if anyone had some stories..

That's simply because Dexter's a jackass

haha nevermind, that would make Greg K be one too :(

*sigh* Another thread I have grown weary of…

First of all, Dexter is not a jackass. Nor is he an asshole. At least from my experiences.

Next to my boyfriend, Dexter is the nicest guy I've ever met. Each time our paths have crossed he's been very sweet. He's a bit goofy but very gracious. But, like all people, he has his bad days. I can assume that those who have had a negative experience meeting him caught him on one of those bad days.

He looks like a very nice guy. He's gotta be one of the only singers of a punk band in the world who doesn't advocate drug use and continually bag the shit out of other bands, and i heard an interview with him when splinter first came out with noodles and they were both so nice. ALSO a DJ on Nova 96.9 (Sydney Radio Station) had a competition running for a fan to meet the offspring and hang out with them for a night. The next day after the night happened the DJ read out what the prize winner had said about them and even preceeded to write to The Offspring's record company to say that they had been so good for the publicity of the radio station by being so friendly and easy going. Apparently Dexter and Noodles spent about half an hour trying to prove to some of the winners friends over the phone that they were really the Offspring.

Does that prove he's nice??

dexter and noodles went surfing with someone over here. they're really cool to their fans, as far as i can tell.

and in reply to 'what if dexter is a jackass when his fans arent around', i say, who gives a shit. he's good with the press and good with his fans, so who cares if he's a dick to his friends.

I'm a pretty nice person once you get to know me. I open the door for people, if someone drops something I'll pick it up for them, if someones having trouble with their school work I'll help them, general stuff. Dexter seems like a nice guy but i can imagine him getting pissed off at people, Noodles seems annoying I'd get pissed off too if had to be around him all the time, sorry guys but it's the truth

you can't expect people to be nice all the time. if they are, there's something probably wrong with them, or they have a steady stream of prozac being perscribed to them.

Barney is pure evil. There is no good side. It's just a facade so that he can get little kiddies on his show, molest them, and then eat them. Why do you think they all went away? Got it? Barney=pure evil.

Hahaha that's some funny shit.

05-31-2005, 01:04 PM
...he's only human.

Seriously though; you can't expect people to be nice all of the time, personally I don't give a damn if he is a twat sometimes (apart from the fact that a mean person would be getting my money...) because he makes awesome music and that's what matters. At least he's not ridiculously materialistic and shallow like Hollywood people!

Good example; the Clash are one of my favourite bands, and I was watching their DVD and Mick was being an absolute dick to one of the roadies - they're an awesome band but are still only human! It's annoying that Mick came across as such a dick in that scene but in other scenes he seemed awesome so it makes up for it.

Basically; don't expect people to be perfect all the time, because they're not (except me, of course!).

It's the truth until Noodles comes online, and then it magically becomes a joke that people took a little too far.

Ok, I guess it's just a family thing then, or maybe that cousin of dexter is just jealous ha.

I've heard bad things about dexter from several other offspring fans but I guess nobody here has anything, and dammit, no more "dexter is so nice to me!" stories. We all already know he's really nice to fans. I was just wondering if anyone knew dexter personally. Oh well..

I met Dexter in 2003, and he was one of the coolest guys ever. He took the time to sign an autograph, pose for three pictures, and answer my questions.

Noodles is super friendly as well. Noodles was annoyed with one of the record workers because he was cutting into our conversation. He actually told the guy to wait, and said these guys are my fans, and they have been waiting.

Don't forget, Atom and Greg are super friendly as well!

good to hear, yea i would imagine that hed b a cool guy i mean wat snob would start up a rock band? just not the right personality for the job ya kno? im sure they are all pretty cool guys. Hey i was wonderin. i kno this probly is the wrong thred for this but im too lazy to look. anyone kno wat they new "Can't Repeat" song is about. im really liking this one. im trying not to spoil with the internet pop-up listener thingys lol i want to wait for the cd but i cant resist. but anyway i think it may b about ron welty...im probly wrong, yea probly way wrong ive only listend to it a few times but just curious. i mean hey it could b, maybe not the whole thing but parts of it may be, like refering to a situation like him leaving something thats hard and u can change an blah blah blah blah.............................................. .........................

Far from asshole, he even offered me his help in the summer to get tickets to their show here that ticks couldn't be bought...

"Hi XXX XXX,
I'll try to get you a couple tickets.
Please email to remind me around August 25th, then I will be home and can
forward your request to the right person.

Talk to you later,
Dexter."

i'm not been funny or in any way trying to be nasty...but....this IS the offspring forum....so you really think fans are going to say "oh yeah, Dexter is such a jackass it's not even funny"

I'm not disputing anyone who's met him either....i'm sure he's the loveylyest {if that even is a word!} man on god's green earth. But i'm sure he gets that is fans have put him where he is today and its not summit to be sniffed at!

http://irc-galleria.net/view.php?nick=TheKnob

we chatted for a moment, and he was very nice

His bodyguard (the black guy in the back) was tough...my cousin asked from him that "can i take a photo also" and the bodyguard said "NO!!!!!!!"

but dexter came and said "ofcourse you can take one"

so to me he was a nice guy...
