Kevin John Wasserman, the beloved and bespectacled axeman of the Offspring, goes by the simple stage name Noodles. Having worked as a janitor at Earl Warren Elementary school in Garden Grove, California, the guitarist was given his nickname from his constant noodling on the guitar.

Noodles was actually planning to quit the Offspring after the end of the 1994 school year, but the sudden success of the track 'Come Out and Play' caused the guitarist to keep playing with the band.
