Lucy Museum of Musicians - The Offspring

Qualification to The Lucy Museum of Musicians who deserve entry to Lucy's Museum of Musicians is they must have a minimum of three songs which would make me turn up the radio if they came on.

The Offspring
Qualifying Songs: Come Out & Play, Want You Bad, The Kids Aren't Alright

The Offspring were part of the pop-punk band thing in the 1990's but they had been around since 1984 so they were not an overnight success.
Like almost every Offspring song, 'Come Out and Play' is a fast paced pop punk piece and this is considered their breakthrough song and has a cool Arabian guitar riff going on.
'The Kid's Aren't Alright' is again another fast paced pop punk song and a play on The Who hit 'The Kid's Are Alright', the Offspring obviously thought otherwise.
'Want You Bad' follows the same Offspring formula but it isn't until you actually listen to the lyrics and see the video with girls shaking cans of cola which then explode all over them that you realise what the song is about, yep, it's about that.
