The Offspring’s ’Greatest Hits’ compilation to receive first wide vinyl release

Round Hill Music

All of The Offspring‘s biggest songs are coming to vinyl in one convenient package.

A wax edition of the band’s 2005 Greatest Hits compilation is set to get a wide release on July 29. The package will be available in three different variants: a simple black LP with a lyric insert, a picture disc featuring The Offspring’s flaming skull logo and a Walmart exclusive including a flaming skull turntable slipmat.

A limited number of Greatest Hits vinyl copies were released during this year’s Record Store Day. Before that, the collection had never been available on vinyl.

The 14-track Greatest Hits — well, 15 if you include the hidden cover of The Police‘s “Next to You” — features songs such as “Self Esteem,” “Gone Away” and “The Kids Aren’t Alright,” as well as the then-new single “Can’t Repeat.”

The Offspring released their latest album, Let the Bad Times Roll, in April 2021. The band just wrapped a U.S. tour in support of the record, but will return to the States for another run in July following a trip to Europe in June.
