Blink-182 is an american band, consisting of three members, Tom Delonge (singer, guitarist) Mark Hoppus (singer, guitarist) and Travis Barker (Drummer). Blink-182 is pronounced Blink 1-82, although many people say Blink 1-8-2.

Blink-182 is not a punk/punk rock band. All I see is people saying Blink-182 isn't punk. This is true, but as far as I know, Blink-182 never claimed to be punk in the first place. They have been labelled as many different genres: pop-rock, rock, indie, alternative, pop-punk etc. In my opinion Blink are a Pop-Punk band, pop is stuff like Rihanna, One Direction, Pink, Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj. Punk is bands such as The Clash, The Who or The Ramones. People who write definitions just to point out that Blink-182 are 'poser punks' clearly know nothing about Blink-182, and shouldn't be writing about them.

Blink's fanbase isn't only teenage girls, emo's or skaters. And if you asked everyone at my high school whether they heard of blink, they won't have.

Tom's voice, is, in my opinion, beautiful. But lots of people will see at as extremely annoying and whiny. Tom has been in two other bands: Angels & Airwaves and Box Car Racer. Travis was also a member of Box Car Racer, as well as being the drummer for Mark Hoppus's second band: +44.

An alternative rock trio enjoyed by most people but despised by little nerds stuck in the '80's listening to their "hardcore real punk" bullcrap listening to 45 second songs composed of 2 power chords and shouting "fuck this fuck that" etc. Blink-182 is a good band. Doesn't matter if they're punk or not, they make good stuff. Stop complaining.
Guy 1: "Dude, Blink 182 sucks balls! They're whiny and think they're as good as The Sex Pistols!"
Guy 2: "That's retarded."
Guy 1: "I know, right?"
Guy 2: "They're WAY better than The Sex Pistols. They aren't little douches who have nothing to do at 60 years old than rip on good musicians who are getting more attention than them."
