The Offspring in ‘Idle Hands’ – Musician Movie Cameos
The 1999 film ‘Idle Hands’ had become a modern cult classic amongst fans of comedy, horror and stoner flicks. Although ‘Idle Hands’ didn’t get the best critical response, when the movie is mentioned in social circles, ‘Idle Hands’ always seems to illicit a gleeful response.
Near the end of the film, the Offspring just happen to be performing the Ramones classic ‘I Wanna Be Sedated’ at the greatest high school Halloween dance ever. The film’s antagonist, a possessed hand, which was cut off in perhaps an homage to ‘Evil Dead,’ begins to terrorize the school dance by scalping Offspring frontman Dexter Holland, removing the musician’s trademark blonde hairdo.
