A pop punk band formed in 1992 by guitarist Tom Delonge and bassist Mark Hoppus. First drummer was Scott Raynor. Formally known as Blink, they had to change their name to avoid a lawsuit from an Irish band with the same name.

Later on in 1997, Scott decided to leave the band to pursue his education, so new drummer Travis Barker joined. Since then, they have come out with 6 LPs. In 2005, the band took a break to spend more time with their families.
Blink 182 was Sally's favorite band.

Not a punk band, theoretically. Ramones are punk. Sex Pistols are punk. The Buzzcocks are punk. Nonetheless, Blink 182 rock! They did NOT become crap after Enema Of The State (Just for the record) And in England we say 1-8-2, not 1-82, just so ya know.
"Blink-182 are punk!"
"Fuck. You."

"Blink-182 rock!"
*Hugs sensible person*

a band that "real punks" like to make fun of because they arent quite punk enough for them. Blink 182 is one of the most original bands out there, and its not impossible to like hardcore punk and Blink-182. They are not Simple Plan and they are not Good fucking Charlotte. They were around before those bands were picking up instruments, so suck my fucking cock if you don't like them
-Ha look at this loser, he likes Blink-182!
-Ha look at this loser, he has my dick in his mouth!

Tom, Mark and Travis.
Used to be funny, now they're trying too hard to be Serious. I just wish they'd go back to their stupid "Lets run around town naked" days.

Blink182 isn't punk.
But the members of the band are.

Travis also plays Drums for The Transplants, with Tim Armstrong (Singer from Rancid) (Guitar and Vocals) and Skinhead Rob (Vocals).

ok they're not pop punk. punk is sex pistols (to be overly obvious) or the distillers or the specials or ramones or whatever. punk is pretty much dead. there is still punk music, but the era is over and so are the people. even if you truly are punk you wouldn't label yourself. why bother? i wouldnt say blink were posers, they know who they are but it reeli pisses me off when ppl say htey are anything to do wiht punk. yes, they have giutars, voices, fans but theyre not punk. theyre pop rock. and the genre doesnt really matter anyways if you really like the music
person: i love blink 182 ther so hardcore
other person: no there not. theyre fine, but ther not hardcore
