Pete Parada (born July 9, 1974) is the drummer of the California punk rock band The Offspring. He joined the band on July 27, 2007 after Atom Willard left the band to focus on his own band Angels & Airwaves. Due to contractual issues, neither Willard nor Parada played on the eighth Offspring album Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace. Instead, the drum tracks were handled by Josh Freese. However, Pete played on four tracks on the band's ninth album Days Go By, making this his first recording with them.
Prior to joining The Offspring, Pete was a member of the power metal band Steel Prophet and played on their 1997 album Into the Void (Hallucinogenic Conception). Subsequently he joined Face to Face and Saves the Day. Pete was also associated with the metal band Engine and Rob Halford's solo project Halford, and briefly played drums in the punk band Alkaline Trio. He was also a member of the female-fronted rock band Hot Mess, and in 2011, he played shows with Devo.
