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,
they chose:
Blink *182*.

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 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.
