    Thank you all for the reasons, they are all interesting. I think I heard that they didnt want Manic Subsidal any longer and Offspring just came to their minds and they agreed, but still there MIGHT be some secret story

    Maybe they took the name The Offspring, because Green Day was already used.

Because ignition is born green and then ripens and becomes burn it up, which is yellow, then darkens and becomes a song that has yet to be published and will appear in a collection of b-sides and brown nell'accezione this song is a song from the session discarded of ignition.

    It's always irritating when you ask that question to a band and they answer, "we just like how it sounded." Many bands chose their name only because it sounded neat.

    Is there something wrong about that? It's enough that their songs have a lot of meaning, the name doesn't have to

    I know that such band names are really common. It's not wrong but it's a bit annoying. You get the feeling that they could have tried harder to find a name that actually meant something or had something to do with their music.
