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 gay "punk" rock band that has became a hit mostly with teenage girls and some occasional skater fags. All of there songs deal with some type of girl or relationships making them repetitive and unoriginal. Guitar chords are repeated through out all songs with no change and bass is slow and boring. The only talanted member of the band is Travis Barker who's drum skills have been tragicaly wasted with the whinnying of Tom Delong. People think they are the best band ever and the idol of punk music, when they have no idea who the sex pistols or The Clash are. Open your fucking eyes.
Dumb Girl- OMG! Did you hear that new Blink-182 Song?????
Normal Girl- Oh that one that sounds the same and deals with the same stuff as all of there other songs????
Dumb Girl-...............yeah.....

Skater Fag- Yo Dude, that Blink song so relates to my relationship dude, its like so true and real
Normal Guy- Actually it relates to your life in no way, stop thinking they are singing about your life
Skater Fag- Fuck you man, im gonna Skateboard!!!!

Lame pop punk GreenDay rip off band claiming to be actual punk but are too wussy to actually sing about real issues or do anything contraversial.
Blink-182 sucks, real punk rock bands don't sign to major labels.

a shitty band. one of the worst. many people classify them as "punk", but they're far from it. they're a pussy preppy pop band. they sing about girls, and kissing, and loving. fuck that. thats not punk. everyone that says blink 182 is punk needs to listen to some true punk rock like op ivy or the misfits.

fuck off blink fans
blink 182 slut- "lyke OH MY GOD i went to this blink concert and it was so wicked!"
me- *smack*
