Released May 21, 1996, it’s their most diverse … and their last until 2012’s “King Animal.”
Some people say the break-up writing was on the wall. Others, including members of the band, say there was talk of a next Soundgarden album. Nonetheless, after a grueling world tour, the band went its collective ways.
Offspring release their third album Smash on April 8, 1994.
Independent record label Epitaph releases the album and it sells over 6 million copies making it the best-selling independent releases of all-time. It’s the only album by which the band is known simply as Offspring.
Major label Columbia Records signs the band and they become The Offspring.
