The Offspring and 311 cover each other’s songs

Coinciding with the Never-Ending Summer tour, The Offspring have released a cover of 311‘s 1996 hit “Down”, while the latter have released a cover version of The Offspring’s 1994 hit “Self Esteem”. You can hear the new renditions on Spotify or Apple Music, or below.

311’s Nick Hexum recently spoke to Billboard.com about how this idea came together: “It was the Offspring’s idea, and a great idea. They said, ‘We had the idea to cover your song, and we’ve done it,’ and I was like, ‘Wow! I have to hear this,’ ’cause it’s such a signature song. Were they going to cover it faithfully or rework it?’ They reworked it just enough; There’s punk to it, and Dexter (Holland) actually does a killer job of rapping SA (Martinez)’s parts in more of a punk rock style, with fast drums. We were so blown away, It was so my fun to hear that. So we returned the favor and reggaefied (‘Self Esteem’), which is probably my favorite song of theirs. It’ll be a lot of fun to give the fans new versions of these songs they love so much.”

The Offspring’s first album since 2012’s Days Go By is tentatively due for release this year. 311 released their last record Mosaic a year ago and are reportedly working on new music.
