In this week’s STP-CAST, we spoke with Dexter Holland, the front man of The Offspring. The Offspring have a new CD out now called "Days Go By", and they will be at Pain In The Grass on September 29th at the White River Amphitheater...tickets are on sale today at 10 AM through Ticketmaster. The CD is really good…there are some songs that bring you back to the old school Offspring sound…like stuff off their CD Smash. That CD brings me back to being a teen, on Christmas morning opening up my gifts and that was one of the gifts that Santa got me…the song that blew me and most of my friends away way this one of course!
Some of the songs on the new CD have a different vibe, and I am digging em…like the song we are playing on KISW, Days Go By, it has a Foo Fighters vibe to it:
This is my fave off the CD…yes it’s ridiculous and over the top pop…but it’s a fun listen and the Buh Buh Bumping In My Trunk part is forever stuck in my head:
You can listen to our interview with Dexter of The Offspring on the STP-CAST here:
During the interview Dexter talked about one of the craziest things he has seen in the 28 years of being in The Offspring...it happened in Portland when a guy set himself on fire while they were playing. He soon put himself out, and the band never stopped playing! Hilarious. I could be wrong, but I’m guessing that guy wasn’t sober! Based on Dexter’s story of watching a guy set himself on fire while playing a concert...what is the craziest thing you have seen at a concert? Here are the texts we got:
