I've just discovered that Joey Ramone was actually a huge fan/supporter of The Offspring. He even had, like, positive things to say about them, for example: in one article from 1995, he called The Offspring a great punk band, and in another interview, he said it was cool hearing them. Dexter and Joey even got to do interviews with each other.
I'm glad Joey got to know Dexter. The Offspring and The Ramones remain two of my favorite bands of all time. I wonder if anyone else in The Ramones (like Johnny or Dee-Dee) liked or loved The Offspring. Probably Marky, he got to join them on stage when they played "R.A.M.O.N.E.S." last September at Rock in Rio 5.
