Own The Rights To The Offspring’s Columbia Catalog For Just $35M

Southern California ’90s staples the Offspring released their first three albums on Epitaph records before signing to a major label in time for the release of 1997’s Ixnay On The Hombre. Columbia Records signed the band after their 1994 single “Come Out And Play” made it to the top of Billboard’s alternative chart, and in doing so, retained rights to the band’s catalogue for an 18-year period. Now, the Offspring have full control of the masters to six of their records released by Sony Music, and according to Billboard, the band plans on selling the albums and their music publishing for a sum in the $30 to $35 million range. It’s rumored that Sony Music (who already have a relationship with the band’s work) and Round Hill are likely bidders. Watch the music video for “Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)” below.
