"I really love that new band they're really Blink-182ish."

Denotes a complete lack of musical depth, a modest sense of tune, and an amateurish, puerile sense of humour. From the punk group "Blink 182", which most critics agree is a gussied-up boy band with good management.
This band Simple Plan is pretty good but they are kind of Blink-182ish.
