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."

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*

One of the worst band on the radio. People call it punk, but that's just because they don't know what the fuck punk music is. There hasn't been a real punk band founded in 25 years, let alone Blink 182. They are an industry, and icon, the very antithesis of punk music. This would be excusable if they were a good band, but they aren't. They only sing about their very minor problems, and they can't write good lyrics for shit.
Blink 182 sucks, listens to the Germs if you want punk rock.

Blink 182 are the most shamefull 'skatey rockers' out there. they can't play for shit, can't make decent songs and think they're cool cos they wear black eye makeup.
Blink is not punk, and never will be.
