They lay claim to the biggest-selling independent album of all time - Smash from 1994. But just because The Offspring don't have to sweat the rent, don't think they've forgotten their punk roots. They're streaming their new album for free. So if you don't want to pay to hear it, or you simply want a preview before you buy, you're in luck.

For Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace, Noodles, Dexter and the gang got together with big-time producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Bon Jovi), and the resulting 12 tracks have some pretty gnarly teeth. The first single is called Hammerhead, a slam-bang affair if ever we heard one - it's already been licensed for Rock Band.

He is also a former editor of Guitar World, contributing writer for Guitar Aficionado and VP of A&R for Island Records. He’s an enthusiastic guitarist, but he’s nowhere near the likes of the people he interviews. Surprisingly, his skills are more suited to the drums.
