I just learned that Mikey Offender, most notably a member of legendary hardcore band The Offenders, has passed away. I have no idea of the circumstances surrounding his passing. Mikey’s contribution to hardcore punk is very impressive. Not only was he a member of The Offenders, but he also did time in DRI and MDC. He will be missed for sure and it’s a sad day in the world of punk rock. My condolences go out to his friends and family.

Man, that is bad news. Mikey Offender was an amazing bass player. In addition to playing with one (if not THREE!!) of the greatest thrash bands in history, he was the man who laid down the wicked riffs on MDC’s John Wayne was a Nazi. This is a sad thing indeed. NX has much love for the Offenders, DRI (our first promoters!), and MDC. RIP MIkey.
