    Default THE OFFSPRING Sells Entire Catalog For $35 Million

    According to The Pulse Of Radio, THE OFFSPRING has sold the rights to the band's entire catalog of Columbia Records master recordings and the publishing rights for all its songs to Round Hill Music, with the New York-based company paying $35 million. The band sold the recorded masters for the six albums it made for Columbia Records, along with the publishing rights to the songs on all nine of its studio efforts. The master recordings for the band's first three albums remain with Epitaph, the label that originally released them.

    Among the Epitaph albums is 1994's "Smash", the breakout blockbuster that sold more than six million copies in the U.S. and featured the hits "Come Out And Play", "Self-Esteem" and "Gotta Get Away".

    Included in the Columbia catalog are 1997's "Ixnay On The Hombre", which sold 1.4 million copies, 1998's "Americana", which moved five million, and 2000's platinum-selling "Conspiracy Of One".

    THE OFFSPRING have sold a total of 17 million copies of their nine albums to date.

    Frontman Dexter Holland told The Pulse Of Radio that he thinks THE OFFSPRING's albums have all had a consistent style. "I think that there's a thread that runs through all of our albums, for sure," he said. "I mean, people say there's a sound to our band. I don't know exactly what that sound is, but people seem to recognize it when they hear our records, and like any of our other records, there are songs that people might not expect to hear from us, but people seem to know it still sounds like us."

    Holland said in a statement about the catalog sale, "We felt that having the right caretaker for our catalog, both the masters and the publishing, is incredibly important to the future of our career."

    Round Hill Music chairman/CEO Josh Gruss said about the acquisition: "You won't get a more high-quality catalog than THE OFFSPRING. Also, we didn't have some American punk rock in our publishing portfolio, and this acquisitions helps broaden the genre representation."

    THE OFFSPRING have reportedly spent much of the last year working on the follow-up to their last album, 2012's "Days Gone By". A single called "Coming For You" surfaced last February, but no further details on the new album have emerged since then.

    $35 Million, for The Offspring?

    Wow, that seems like a lot, but I guess their catalog generates enough cash flow to justify it, but damn. Wouldn't have expected it to be worth that much.

    VH's must be worth $150 million at least if someone will pay $35M for the Offspring.

    I guess they made them a deal they couldn't refuse.

    I really dig their first two albums. Not so much since then.

    Considering where the music industry is headed, I would have sold for that much in a heart beat! Money is in touring now adays - so why the hell wouldn't you?

    $35 million for The Offspring does seem like a lot. I think Pete Townshend got something around $100 million for his individual rights a few years back. I wish I could sell out

    The Offspring are like the worst of the worst, maybe a rung above Smashmouth & Crazytown.

    How, in God's name, can anyone pay 35 million for a band, that's sell by date, was 1997?
    Who want's to hear these song's in 2015 & beyond?
    Where is the market for The Offspring in the age of Justin Bieber & Beyonce?

    The Offspring would be on K-tel's "Frat rock" collection:
    The big dumb 90's, all on one disc!

    The RHCP have three of the most gifted musicians in the game:

    Flea, Frusciante (when he was in the band) and Chad.
    All three guys: absolute monsters.

    Then there's Anthony.

    Probably THE worst vocalist in all of rock music.
    The guy has made singing out of tune his quirky trademark.

    And when he attempts to sing softly, it's even worse.

    The Chili Peppers wouldn't be the band they are without Anthony.

    Have you ever listened to one of their records? Outside of being guilty of poor selection for their singles, they really haven't ever put out a bad record. To each their own and all that shit.
