Releasing songs into video games is a good way to reach fans, according to The Offspring frontman Dexter Holland. He spoke to Billboard about a wide variety of topics recently, including how The Offspring has been involved with video games for decades.
He explained that The Offspring’s association with video games began with surf and skate videos. Songs from the band’s 1992 album Ignition were used in a number of surf videos because the music is energetic and fits the vibe of surfing nicely.
“We’d have this whole new crowd that came out to see us play–these skaters and surfers, whereas before it was the mohawks and leather jacket crowd,” he said.
