In customary Offspring fashion, Let The Bad Times Roll packs a high-energy punch while taking a thematically critical tone in reflection of the current tumult in our lives — as guitarist/vocalist Dexter Holland told Rock Cellar in a feature interview around the album’s release:

“Let the Bad Times Roll just seemed to sum up the state of the world. We felt like … it’s not just a referendum on what’s happened the past few years. We’re not out of the woods yet, you know? We’re still facing these challenges, we’re still trying to get vaccinated. It was just a couple months ago that the Capitol riots happened, along with everything else.

“The bad times, they’re still rolling.”
