Yesterday marked exactly 20 years since The Offspring released Smash. On the day of its anniversary, The Offspring members Dexter Holland and Noodles, along with Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz, spoke with Rolling Stone and shared what they remembered about the recording sessions and unexpected success of Smash, which has sold approximately 20 million copies worldwide. Former Didjits singer and guitarist Rick Sims also appeared in the interview, talking about about The Offspring’s cover version of “Killboy Powerhead”, which is the tenth track on Smash.
