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 shitty pop-punk band, most noted for their loser drumer who broke his arm and made some ads, before everyone just lost interest in him.

To not be punk at all.
"This band sucks, they're so blink 182!"

a poser "punk" 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.

Fucking awful music, rubbish lyrics, whiney vocals. And for everyone who is just gonna think "OMG HES ONLY LISTENED TO THE NEW BLINK", you're wrong. Old Blink sucks too.

Good drummer though
Blink 182 are total arse

A very weak band. They have/had a large fan base mainly because no one these days knows what good music is. There is almost no skill involved(except for the drumming which is great). Almost anyone could pick up a guitar or bass and play half their songs. Not punk, just bad.
person 1: hey look at me im so cool because i listen to crappy music like blink-182.

person 2: shutup and listen to some music that takes a bit of skill and concentration to create.

Blink182 is a rock/pop band.. used to be a bit more hardcore and relatively punkish, but never really punk. For one thing, you can understand the lyrics. Still pretty good band, just not punk. Sold out? Maybe. Who cares?
"Blink182 isn't punk. Neither are you. Shut up."

A band with a lead singer that has a squeaky annoying voice. The music itself is okay, but the singer....sucks.
hm...this is some good music...until the guy starts singing....
