The Offspring’s Dexter Holland on the making of “Smash”

Next Tuesday (April 8th) will mark the 20th anniversary of The Offspring‘s iconic album Smash. On the eve of this anniversary, frontman Dexter Holland spoke with OC Weekly and shared what he remembered about making the album that broke The Offspring into the mainstream. On the making of Smash, Dexter said:

“A lot of the bands were great back then and made great songs but didn’t necessarily have a lot of melody, and that’s what we were trying to do, combine those two things.”

Dexter also talked about recording the album at Track Record Studios in West Hollywood during the Northridge Earthquake, “The next day, the ceiling was, like, drooping. Track Record was in the center of North Hollywood, so it got hit really hard.”

The Offspring last released Days Go By in June 2012. The band, which is currently unsignedbegan working on new material with producer Bob Rock last summer.
