Pete Parada, who’s been the drummer since 2007 for veteran punk band The Offspring, announced that he has been let go by the band due to his refusal to take any variation of the COVID vaccine. According to Parada, he’s been deemed “unsafe” to be around even though he had COVID-19 and recovered. But that’s not his only reason for his decision to not get “the jab.” He explained his reasoning in a lengthy Twitter thread Monday
There is presently no statement about the matter on the band’s website or social media channels. The band is touring to support Let The Bad Times Roll, its first new album in nine years. (A side note: lead singer Dexter Holland holds a Ph.D in molecular biology from USC.)

Whoa - Ooooooh!
ignorance rules the day
In other surprising news, The Offspring is a band that still exists.
Why not just say “I’ve converted to Islam and Honorable Minister Farrakhan forbids the vax”?
Surely political correctness must accommodate that.
Evidently “punk” does not stand for what I thought it stood for.
You’ve got to keep them separated.
USC is a football school where they load great athletes with easy majors.
Molecular Biology is not one of them.
I like The Offspring. They have put out some great music. But you’re right. I haven’t heard anything from their new album.
LOL! The irony on this one is pretty thick! I hope someone hosts the drummers twitter statement.
wellll ... they’re punks after all.
My neighbor Pete
Nice guy..we are rural pool club pals
No kidding. They kicked the only punk they had out of the band...
Yeah. Punk rock man!
Like a spreading disease
Came here to post that. I guess Punk now means conformist. I guess the rage against the man is out too.
He already had Covid so his immunity is better than the jab. The jab has become a religion.
Their newest song is “yellow star of Germany”....
"universities" are giving out degrees like prizes from a Cracker Jacks box these days...
I think I lost my walking partner from work-—we had a nice walk and on the way back he asked why I wear a mask in work. I said “ Company policy is those not vaccinated must wear a mask”.
He looked at me as if I had the plague——I said “You’re a smart guy, I had Covid, why do I need the vaccine”.
Another dead stare——
