The Offspring are most certainly punk. Pop punk is also a very a disputable term. The Ramones and Buzzcocks could easily be considered "Pop-Punk". Their sound is rooted in catchy melodies, and bubblegum pop. Yet you cannot find a truer distillation of punk music than The Ramones. The Offspring, along with their comtemporaries Green Day, and Rancid are rooted in these pop-punk influences and their sound also fits the criteria of being punk as well. So therefore they are punk, despite being called "pop-punk". More commercial maybe.....but their pop-punk sound is not really a departure from The Ramones....which is True Punk.

Really?....I figured Sid Vicious would be the Sex Pistol to be more likely to be hated.

Anyways, I think Johnny Rotten is alright. Sid Vicious is untalented...

i remember my brother listened to offspring when it was in.
however offspring is very good band,but i'm not a fan of it.

greenday:
it has two sides:

1.gd is cool cauze they share with the world a punk culture and now there is so much punker and people who knows what is punk ... listening a songs like american idiot and etc. or someone says oooo let's explore what is punk.And really became a punker.(discovering old punk bands)

2.gd sells punk like some sh*t.
they lebel ourselfes like PUNK.
And punk is not mainstream.
It never was it.good charlotte is not a punk.
for goodness sake PUNK MEANS SO MUCH.
and now it is just 'greeny dayy'

However.I don't have a strong opinion about gd.
fu*k it...

believe me i know plenty about the offspring, in my circle of friends they're well known lets just say. lemme say smash is a very good album americana too, but isn't punk supposed to be non-comercial? maybe its the fingers talkin but at least they haven't gone the way of green day.

well green day DID get kicked out of the punk rock circle for getting huge. its easy to make songs that are non comercial but can still please your audience. that's what pearl jam did for a few years right?
