The Offspring: Spawn To Be Wild

Steven Wells, New Musical Express, 1 February 1997

• Californian punk rockers THE OFFSPRING are hated by the American 'underground'. Why? Well, they love 70s disco, one of them is saving for his child's college education and one is an expert in Molecular Biology. But worst of all, they sell shitloads of records. So just how punk rock are they? Very, says STEVEN WELLS.
