Name Origin:
Bryan Holland and Greg Kreisel were originally in a band called 'Manic Subsidal'. However, two members dropped out and the duo picked up Kevin Wasserman as guitarist and Ron Welty as the drummer. When they came to record their first CD, they were asked what the name of the band was. It wasn't until then that Bryan and Greg realised they couldn't be called Manic Subsidal. While thinking about it, someone yelled out "The Offspring" and since then the band stuck with that name.

in 1984 in Garden Grove, California when they were outside of a Social Distortion concert, when both were refused entry

Offspring Quotes:
I was in a band without a label, and I was trying to find one that would sign us. A lot of the guys I know were guys who had their own labels, like Jello Biafra with Alternative Tentacles, Fat Mike at Fat Wreck, Bret at Epitaph, Ian MacKaye at Dischord…. I always thought it was a cool idea to have your own label, but I did not have the money or the connections. That all changed after SMASH came out. From being on an independent label I learned how to run one. I had a little bit of money from SMASH. I had these friends of mine in a band called Guttermouth who were looking for a label, and we got together. We literally started on my kitchen table. I was pressing up records and storing them in my bedroom.
-Dexter Holland

I live in Huntington Beach now. I grew up in Garden Grove. I lived there my whole life.
-Dexter Holland

These are very scary times. Things can easily escalate more than ever before. Anybody with a backpack and a cell phone can blow up hundreds of people. Our last record came out a few months before 9/11, and it was called A CONSPIRACY OF ONE, and only a generation ago it was the Cold War, with the threat of nuclear weapons. Now I see it as more likely that one person or a small group can inflict that much damage and fear. It was a weird thing to have the album come out only six months before the terror attacks.
-Dexter Holland
