Get Festive! The Offspring Have Released A Christmas Song

Here’s The Offspring’s seasonal jingle, just in time for November…

Does Christmas come earlier every year? No — always December 25. Still, The Offspring are getting their oar in early for the festive tomfoolery by dropping a Christmas song immediately after Halloween. It’s going to be a very different Christmas than usual, so a punked-up version of Darlene Love’s Chrimbo classic Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) could be just the Xmas miracle that’ll save 2020

It just seemed like the world could use a nice holiday song right now,” says frontman Dexter Holland. We’ve always been huge fans of Darlene Love, so when the idea came up to do a Christmas song, we jumped at the chance to record that one…and tried not to wreck it!”

The band were due to release their first new album in eight years in 2020, with guitarist Noodles saying all that was left was to do artwork, tracklisting, and to tie a metaphorical bow on it. Obviously… yeah nah, COVID. But signs from the band are promising.

It sounds like our old shit!” Dexter told K!. That’s what I’m supposed to say, right? I don’t really know how to describe it. I guess it’s punk rock, but then we throw in a couple of songs that aren’t what you’d normally predict. We have a lot of really fast stuff on there, plus a couple of things that you might not really expect from us. But I’m really, really happy with it.”
