Vote for either The Offspring's 'Come Out and Play' or Green Day's 'Basket Case' in this Loudwire Classic Cage Match.
It was a tight battle, but Soundgarden's 'Black Hole Sun' has emerged to earn its first Classic Cage Match victory over Nine Inch Nails' 'Closer.' The standout track off of Soundgarden's stellar 'Superunknown' album is a wicked rocker giving Chris Cornell's voice a chance to shine while some sinister licks are laid down under his voice. The track received just shy of 55 percent of the final tally to advance, but 1994 was a big year for hard rock and the hits just keep on coming.
Though The Offspring famously sang, "You've gotta keep 'em separated," Loudwire wants to unite you with the album that made that line famous. We're teaming with the band to provide you with the opportunity to win the awesome new 'Smash' 20th Anniversary special edition CD and vinyl package.
Congrats to The Offspring, who will be saluted with the Orange County Impact and Lifetime Achievement honor at the annual OC Music Awards. The honor annually goes to a renowned local band or artist that has left a major impact on the Orange County music scene, and the Huntington Beach, Calif. natives have definitely done that.
In its fifth year, the Epicenter festival turned its attention to old-school punk stalwarts and up-and-coming scenesters. With veterans like the Offspring, Bad Religion and Pennywise joined by A Day to Remember, Pierce the Veil, All Time Low and Falling in Reverse, the day offered good times and rapid-fire rock.
