Covering AC/DC takes guts, but covering the iconic band in front of an Australian crowd, to quote the band themselves, takes ”Big Balls.”

That’s what The Offspring did during their headlining set at the Good Things Festival when they cranked out a cover of “Whole Lotta Rosie.”   This cover was likely the last thing the crowd was expecting, especially since The Offspring were billed to be performing their 1994 album Smash in its entirety.
