According to Idioteq.com, talks about The Offspring being inducted into next year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are apparently underway.
Although not affiliated with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the website Future Rock Legends says that The Offspring are being eligible for induction into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 and will be present at the 2014 Induction Ceremony. The website states:
"The Offspring have made a good living by writing about teenage angst in suburban Southern California for the last couple of decades. Critical acclaim has been hard to come by, so it's doubtful they'll have much more than an outside shot at future induction.

If the event were to happen, The Offspring would be the fourth "punk" band to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, following the Ramones, The Clash and Sex Pistols, who were inducted in 2002, 2003 and 2006 respectively.
