The Timely Return Of Pop-punk Veterans The Offspring


The Offspring

As pop-punk makes a resurgence in this peri-pandemic age, it seems only right that The Offspring have picked this time to drop their first album in 9 years, appropriately titled Let the Bad Times Roll. Plus, they've also announced that they are set to hit the road with The Hives in November, touring across the UK and Ireland.

We can't help but feel extreme late-90s-early-00s nostalgia with the return of The Offspring; a feeling that's only heightened with the likes of Machine Gun Kelly's pop-punk album Tickets To My Downfall, not to mention Yungblud, Travis Mills and Nick Gross' new project Girlfriends, and Avril Lavigne's collaboration with Mod Sun Flames.

The Offspring Dexter Holland

Just because someone is famous for making angsty rock music doesn't mean they can't have a super serious geeky side to them too. The Offspring frontman Dexter Holland is crushing stereotypes by landing a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology because he wants to help people living with HIV.

The Offspring - Days Go By Album Review


Even when reaching their commercial peak with novelty anthem 'Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)', California punk veterans The Offspring never strayed far from a particular sound - and their ninth studio record doesn't see them make the leap. In other words, fans will be satisfied and those never interested won't be converting now.

The Offspring - Days Go By Album Review

Straight off the bat with 'The Future Is Now' you get the sort of riffs and energy that have long served The Offspring well, something that continues through the likes of 'Turning Into You' and 'Dirty Magic', which are just a couple of examples of perfectly acceptable if not thrilling guitar tracks. Whether the AOR moments are a reflection of the band's advancing years is debateable, but the title track 'Days Go By' and 'All I Have Left Is You' prove to be uninspiring if nothing else. Of greater interest is 'Cruising California (Bumpin' In My Trunk)', which probably doesn't sound too appealing if only described as an uncomfortable attempt by Dexter Holland to rap through his vocals. However, the track is actually a very slick pop record and lyrics aside could easily be the sort of chart-topper produced by the likes of Katy Perry. It's an enjoyable break from the guitar assault, as aside from this it is very much a case of business as usual for this outfit.
