One of the earliest pictures of The Offspring exists as the cover to their first single, "I'll Be Waiting," featuring the eerie shadows of Bryan, Kevin, James and Greg.
It's been spread around as a trivia fact that this very picture was later used in the insert to their first album, and on the back of the reissue of The Offspring album.
Whoever came to that conclusion must have jumped the gun. While the insert and the back cover to The Offspring album are the same, the original photograph is different, just look at the hands on the fellow one in from the left on the newer picture. Who knows why they used a different picture, maybe it was retaken once Ron Welty joined the band.
Either way, this isn't groundbreaking news, but just something interesting I've found. You may now resume your daily lives.
