The offspring has been the subject of a “peril!” Question
On the Monday, June 13 episode of the long-running TV quiz show Danger!Punk rock icons The Offspring were the subject of one of the questions in the “Rock” category.
The list of names of rock and metal artists and musicians who have been featured in some capacity – whether part of a clue or the answer to the clue – continues to grow and the inclusion of so many notable figures in heavy music is beginning to feel more and more mundane. Although this music has been shunned by mainstream audiences for at least the last decade, there is something to be said for its staying power with over half a century of history.
The clue, read by host Mayim Bialik, reads: “‘I’m just a sucker with no self-esteem‘ sang Dexter Holland, a PhD in molecular biology who is the lead singer of this band.”
Mazin Omer, the Toledo, Ohio contestant who prompted the category selection, responded incorrectly, suggesting that Holland is the lead singer of punk legends Descendents. Buzzing in second, Eric Ahasic, a meteorologist from Minneapolis, Minnesota, gives the right answer, worth $1,2000, naming The Offspring.
Watch the music video, which The Offspring shared on Twitterjust below.
Just days after completing a headlining tour in support of The Offspring’s latest album, Let the bad times roll, Holland delivered a commencement address for the Class of 2022 at USC’s Keck School of Medicine. Watch this full video here.
