Days Gone By is the first single to be lifted from their forthcoming album of the same name, which is out on June 26.
Frontman Dexter Holland has described the record as one that dabbles in the fun and serious sides of the band.
“I don’t know why but I felt sort of serious writing this record and when I finished I felt I needed to have a few playful songs too. Kind of both sides of the Offspring. Either way I think these songs are all going to be a lot of fun to play live.”
Days Gone By (the song) has received a mixed reaction from punters on the band’s SoundCloud page. One person has commented: “WTF is this, you guys are killing my best childhood memories”, while another has accused it of ripping off the Foo Fighters’ Times Like These.
