The Offspring have shared the video for the track “This Is Not Utopia,” which is included on their 10th studio album, Let The Bad Times Roll, the first studio release from the group in nine years.
After announcing Let The Bad Times Roll at the beginning of 2021, they released it titular track. The band shared how they came up with the album’s name: “We had a song two albums ago [on 2008’s Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace] called [‘Stuff Is Messed Up’]. We wrote that because we thought how terrible things were in the world back then, but it actually got worse. So we had to come up with a new title: ‘Let The Bad Times Roll.’ You can apply it to a lot of things. I mean, we’re not a political band. Some people would apply it to the last administration. Some people would apply it to things that are going on today or just how messed up everything is, trying to fix our pandemic and all that kind of stuff.”
