    Of course, it's not about whose better. We ALL know The Offspring is better, but the reason Greenday will be remembered more then Offspring 20 years from now is because Greenday has remained one of the most popular bands around for over a decade now,unlike Offspring,who were just popular in the mid 90's. Typically, bands that fade out like that aren't remembered much.

    And yes if we want to remember Offspring as a PUNK ROCK Legend Offspring better come up with an album which satisfied us and the new generation(teenagers)

    THE OFFSPRING WILL ROCK ON !!!
    Bands like Yellowcard, Simple Plan, and Good Charlotte are not punk in the slightest. They aren't even pop punk. These bands are horrible MTV emo pop. I'm being serious. Yeah, they're pop punk influenced, but they don't play it. People must be able to make this distinction.

    Also, i think The Offspring's pop hits will affect the way people remember them as well...

    Yeah, they NEED to release agood hardcore punk song as a single so it can reach the top of the charts so they can redeem themselves for Pretty Fly.

    In my opinion, twenty years from now, the Offspring will continue to act as a band that gets kids into punk for the first time. Twelve year-old Johnny punker might hear a more popular track like Pretty Fly... on one of his father's old CDs, like it, and then delve into the earlier works, at which point he will discover S/T, Ignition, and Smash--three solid punk/metal albums. The Offspring are significantly well known and dispersed, lyrically friendly, and musically melodic enough that new-comers to punk aren't scared off by them. If they don't spoil the remainder of their career too badly, I can see them serving as this kind of stepping stone for years to come.

    Also, I doubt that they will be remembered for too much more than just being a goofy LA punk band that signed to a major label in the great punk buy-out of 1994. (Green Day are obviously more popular than the Offspring, and wherever the story of Green Day is told, the Offspring will be mentioned as contemporaries.) However, the truth is that the Offspring aren't too musically innovative. They aren't out there doing radical things that nobody has ever thought of before. Sure, they have their own distinctive sound, but it's not monumentally unique.

    In short, I believe that punks will be still be listening to the Offspring twenty years from now, if only for a few short years early on.

    I doubt the Offspring will really be remembered at all by music fans. They had some good songs, but as already said, they really weren't anything special or groundbreaking. Even the bands that don't sell well then become legends 20 years later like the Pixies or Husker Du were loved by critics when they first came out. The Offspring, on the other hand, arn't really liked by critics and are viewed more as a band that have a few really good songs, and some filler.

    I think really it all depends on this next album, as many of you have said; the previous works of the offspring such as smash, ignition and probably ixnay will always be remembered to some extent as great albums anyway but if the offspring were to make an amazing next album with different styles to previous records then maybe this would help them be memorable. Also, one of the reasons why Green Day are consdered as more memorable than the offspring is because they have been comercialised due to this new album, i really do hope offspring are remembered as a great/ legendary band 20 years from now, because they really do deserve it, the music they make has changed people's lives and introduced many to punk music, they definitely deserve to be remembered.

    Seems like everyone's agreeing that the next album will have alot to do with how The Offspring are remembered in years to come.After putting out 2 albums that MOST people consider disappointments, many people look at The Offspring as being "in a slump" right now. The same thing happend to Greenday with Warning and Shennanigans,but they came back with American Idiot. If The Offspring fail to do the same, rather then looking at them as "in a slump", people will look at The Offspring as a band that had its golden years, but then lost it. And they won't be remembered for much.
