THE OFFSPRING frontman on the making of “Smash”

THE OFFSPRING frontman Dexter Holland recently explained to Australia’s Herald Sun how they made “Smash”, their 1994 multi-platinum record that featured their biggest hits “Come Out and Play” and “Self Esteem”.

On the songwriting process of “Smash”, Holland recalls:

We were very excited about the songs it felt like we were becoming a better band. When I was trying to write the songs for Smash I was driving a really old, beat-up pick-up truck and it was so old and dilapidated that the radio didn’t work but because it didn’t work it gave me time to drive around and think about the songs.
