This outfit started in 1984 as the brainchild of Bryan Dexter Holland and Greg K. As high school cross-country team acquaintances that couldn’t make their way into a punk rock concert and decided to team up and play it themselves. Together the duo discovered a lifelong connection that began with the music of the garage band Manic Subsidal. From here the band added new member Kevin Noodles Wasserman alongside a substitution line-up of members to play other support instruments. This is when multi-instrumentalist Marcus Parrish happened to the band. His contribution allowed Manic Subsidal to deliver Party Animal: We Got Power II (1984). This was released by Mystic Records, after Parrish left the band for personal ventures.
The Offspring took form in 1997 when their self released single 7" Blackball/I'll be Waiting. Their record company Black Label became an iconic Offspring joke that mocked at their inability to find a sponsor. This single was special as Dexter, Noodles, Greg were joined by James Lilja on Drums made it quiet casually and it turned out to be pretty nice. The young Ron Welty joined in 1989 to stay with them for the rest of the ventures. The labels, Nemesis Records led the band to record the self titled and release it the very year. This release was rather limited in quantity and restrictive in format as a twelve inch vinyl form.
The Offspring remained with Nemesis that supported it to produce yet another single titled Baghdad 7. The single was rather impressive compared to any other effort presented before. It was substantial in its quality and earned a high end deal with Epitaph Records. Bad Religion’s guitarist Brett Gurewitz at Epitaph was convinced by Baghdad 7 and he allowed the band to move ahead and record the second success mark Ignition. Ignition hit stands in 1992, and its unprecedented success was the beginning of it all. Ignition allowed the band to realize how big the band already was and it anticipated great returns with a good time investment.
