A band that everyone spends time arguing about,.. constantly.
Truth is, Blink-182 is just a fun band. People run around saying that their songs are stupid, and that they ruined "punk" music. However, as far as i know, blink-182 has never called themselves "Punk" or anything in that range.
Also: "Punk is in the eye of the beholder" keep that in mind.
Personally, *I* wouldn't describe them as punk (early stuff, maybe), either way, it's still great.
Their music embodies the childhoods of children all over america, and parts of Peru.
Although their early music may be called "easy" or "skilless" alot of their songs actually have require a large pool of musical ability. Carousel (an early song, has a killer bass part that takes some definite skill) as well as 'Man overboard'- a later song.
Any song from the "enema of state" album onward has a definitly wicked drumming part.
As far as guitar goes, it might not be complicated, but it really does MAKE the song. Which is all that matters. And that's what makes Tom a GREAT guitarist.
They where almost sued for using the name "Blink" (that they had started under) So they where forced to change their name,
No one really knows why they chose Blink-182,
but a common theory is because
that is the number of times Tony Montana said "FUCK!" in the movie Scarface.
Pre-Pubescent hater: "God i hate Blink-182"
Dude: "No you dont."
Pre-Pubescent hater: "Your right... who could hate Blink-182?"
Douche bag: "Your still learning that!??! I learned to play all of Blink-182's songs on guitar in like, five minutes"
Bro: "Great. Now try learning them on drums."
A band that used to be good back in the Cheshire Cat days. Now they write shit songs that are way overplayed and constantly sung by my little 10-year-old brother.
Thank god they broke up.
Brother: Na na na, na na na, wooo.
Me: Oh dear lord.
A rubish pop punk band who have now gone on to join the whole emo sceen kid thing.most people who listen to this dont know where punk or emo comes from.
13 year old girl: oh my god blink 182 are so punk!
me: no,no there not
" band from SoCal
that thinks that saying "fuck
" 300 times in a song really makes them "grown up" and "tough". They are neither, and they ain't punk in the least. They started hitting the big time
in the late 90s
. Many of their songs are full of toilet humor
. Their music
is totally derivative and chumpy
. Blink 182 sucks.
1. Blink 182 has songs with disgusting
topics. "Fuck a Dog", and other tunes (like "Carousel
- almost nothing but a string of profanities
) should indicate to you a total lack of brains and maturity.
2. Carol sang out the lyrics to Blink 182's song "Carousel" in front of her parents. Ooooh, she thinks she's so rebellious
! She's only looking like a fool.
Not punk. Not good. And also very annoying to listen to.
STEVE: Blink 182 is shitty
GREG: Yes Steve, Blink 182 IS shitty!
One of the queeriest bands around, who make fun of boy bands when they are one themselves.
Blink 182 should die.
A stupid wannabe punk rock band that has millions of pre-teen skaterpunk rocker wannabes as fans because they were played on MTV and this retards think anything that is popular is automatically good.
Travis Barker can suck my balls, you blink pussy fans act as if he was god, because he plays with a broken arm. Ever heard of Rick Allen from Def Leppard? He lost his hand and still plays 10000 times better than that cuntis barker bitch.
Travis is NOT the best drummer either, Neil Peart is. And if you think he sucks cause he's old or played in an "ew liek omg not modern or new they must suck cause theyre old and not mainstream" band, FUCK YOU. These guys are legends.
You idiots need to know something about REAL PUNK MUSIC. RAMONES, DEAD KENNEDIES, MISFITS, CLASH, SEX PISTOLS, NEW YORK DOLLS, BLACK FLAG etc. These are the punk legends, and face it, theres no more punk anymore, PUNK is DEAD.
And Punk riffs dont make a punk rock song, the people themselves do.
xXpunkSkaT8r4Ever: liek, omg, u guys need to listen to poor travis from blink 182 the greatest pnk band ever, playing, with a broken hand!!! im gonna cry now, hes the best drummer ever and SO punk.
punkisdead: You're a pillow biter who doesnt know shit about real punk music.
