Watch: The Offspring perform “The Kids Aren’t Alright” for Guitar Center Sessions

The Offspring recently taped an episode of DirecTV’s Guitar Center Sessions, which some of us (me) unfortunately didn’t realize was a thing until right now. The episode is slated to air this coming Friday (July 31st) at 9pm, though check your local listings to confirm that. (I don’t have DirecTV, but I’m assuming those of you who do will know where to find their listings).

The band released video from that Session’s performance of their classic track “The Kids Aren’t Alright” as a way of giving you a taste of what’s to come. Check it out below.

“The Kids Aren’t Alright” appears on The Offspring’s 1998 album “Americana.” Their latest album, “Days Go By,” was released in 2012. We’re told there’s a new one in the works, but you know how that goes…
