Is Blink 182 punk? I don't care. I really enjoyed "Dude Ranch" and i even liked "Enema Of The State", which made them so popular for the kids. But I think that they have changed their style a little bit, but their style was still o.k. in my opinion. I didn't know what to expect from the new record.

Is Blink 182 punk? I don't care. I really enjoyed "Dude Ranch" and i even liked "Enema Of The State", which made them so popular for the kids. But I think that they have changed their style a little bit, but their style was still o.k. in my opinion. I didn't know what to expect from the new record, because they said, that it would go more aggresive than their last, but I couldn't believe that.

And I was right. It's a very soft album, even softer than EOTS. It's a wonderful present for your little sister or your girlfriend, who also like to listen to the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears.

It starts really lame with "Anthem Part 2", which has no similarity with the good Anthem from EOTS. The first seven songs are all really boring, all with a similar melody. I really dislike Tom DeLonges voice on this album. Blink 182 never had incredible, intelligent lyrics, but the lyrics on this album really suck. They're about girls on rock shows, your first date, a lonely guy,...

TOYPAJ also has some decent songs: "Reckless Abandon" has a cool melody, "Online Songs" would perfectly fit into EOTS. "Happy Holidays Bastard", a 48 seconds song, reminds me of Blink 182 three years ago.

I'm kinda dissapointed by this one. It's the perfect soundtrack for Beverly Hills 90210 and Dawson's Creek. I know that Blink 182 never have been real punks or very innovative, and many people don't care about them, or blame them for "sell-outing"! This is an own topic (and I'm sick of this topic). But I thought this album would be better...it's a pity! (Watch out for Blink 182 on Top Of The Pops and MTV!)

wat the fuck!!! this is serilsy a amzing album, personaaly its been my favourite album since music was invented! and the dog song crakcs me up.

punkdude89 (April 11, 2007)

i love this website, BUT THIS TIME IS HAS REALLY PISSED ME OFF....i mean, is pretty crappy that punks criticize blink for getting softer of making more serious music...the fact that they are not like ramones or the clash doesn't mean that blink is bad...i mean...they improved and i think they created their our genre..........i think is their very best album

Anonymous (May 30, 2006)

why is it the same argument on every website? all the 'real' punk kids need to get over the fact that just because blink isnt like the ramones and doesnt sing about anarchy in every song doesnt mean there not punk. if blink isnt 'real' punk why are you even at their album reveiw. They definatly havnt gotten worse since chesire cat. this album was written in the same style as dude ranch but iwth better recording quality and a better drummer, they said so themselvs. really if you could get 5 million dollars and make a record with quallty recording or get a couple grand and make a poor quality record and have a minimal fanbase but not have 14 year old 'real' punk kids call you sell outs which would you choose.

I think this cd rocks along with every other cd of theirs. I especially like toms voice.Yet he always rocks.Acording to me there is realy nothing bad to say about them or this cd.Personoly i think Give Me One Good Reason is their best song yet, bu like I said thats just me.Blink 182 ROCKS!!

I've been a Blink fan since i was 9 and i dont care how poppish they are i love their music and i'm not gonna keep myself from it because you say it isnt " In with the punks "

Actually I'm not speaking in reference to the reviewer but all the other blink haters out there. It was a pretty good review even though i dont agree with the score

Why in the hell does everyone care so much? Blink is Blink. I admit their lyrics suck, but everything can't always be political or potty humor (Guttermouth). If anything some bands are considered more punks than they are *coughRancidcough*. It's bad enough they're on Warner Bro's along with the Distillers, just wait til' they're on MTV.

Anonymous (April 7, 2003)

Me again,
First, It was Mark who was singing about meeting the girl at the rock show, not tom, come on that's amateur stuff.

Second, I said I wouldn't have heard or started to like GlassJaw if it weren't for the atticus CD. I never said anything remotely close to Daryl being inspired by Blink. I'd kick my own ass if i said that. Which - to restate - i didn't.

Last, I appreciate the feedback, 'sick of me' or whatever, but from now on how about you stick to what you know (which clearly isn't album reviews) and keep raping donkeys and sucking dick.

Sincerely,
Sick Of You All (You Especially)

O by the way the only reason im giving this pathetic excuse for an album 1/2 star is because you cant give it zero anyways..... Who is this pussy ass blink loving motherfucker below and why the fuck is he such a moron...this pussy ass faggot is ranting and raving about being punk obviosly he doesnt know what punk music is...punk music is used to voice opinions (political, human rights etc.) not to talk about how shitty it was that your girlfriend broke up you.

Ya Blink was a gateway band to shitty music the only bullshit that blink has led to is pussier stuff like new found glory, simple plan, not by choice, jimmy eat world (new stuff) and pop punk shit like that.

Also did this idiot say blink led to glassjaw....ya im sure darly palumbo (glassjaw's lead singer) was real inspired by tom delonge singing about his first date, and meeting girls at rock shows.

In closing this guy below is a fuckin idiot try listening to some real punk rock and writing some reals reviews. Im sure people might appreciate your reviews at www.pussypunkrockreviews.com go fuck yourself.

but hey all the small things right nanananananana

sincerly... sick of this mother fucker below

Anonymous (April 5, 2003)

Cheshire Cat came out in 1995! Quit harping about how much blink has changed, I'm willing to bet that you've all changed quite a bit in 8 years!They've become much more skilled musicians and singers since then.

I thought Tom's voice was a welcome change from the waves and waves (and waves) of the similar sounding singers in bands these days. I liked it.

I'm gonna have to agree with the reviewer and say that this album was softer than Enema of The state - in most places. That doesn't mean there aren't some great quicker numbers like "wreckless abandon", "Shut up", "Stay Together For The Kids", and the secret songs on the red and green discs.

It seems like on this site Blink 182 is synonomous with selling out. Which, is unfair. Blink does more than it's part to support the punk scene.

I would consider Blink a 'Gateway' band, because if it weren't for blink taking bands on tour with them, or the blink song on the first Atticus CD, I may never have heard the likes of New Found Glory, Glass Jaw, Finch, The Used, Autopilot off, Jimmy Eat world and dozens more.

Rating how "punk" a band is by the loudness of the vocalist's screams or by whether the band belongs to an indie label is fucking retarded. By signing to a bigger label the band can make more, better quality CD's and go on bigger, better tours.

You guys just get mad when a band goes to a major label because you're a bunch of selfish whining fucking maggots who want to keep the band secret so you can feel cool when you listen to their CD.

I got sort of sidetracked, but only because you're such ignorant shitheads.

Sincerely, Sick Of You All

Who ever wrote this review is a totally fuckign lame ass adn needs to pull his dick out of his ears and get some better taste. TOYPAJ was an awesome cd. It wasn't as hard as they said but that makes no difference. They a great sound album and its actualy sounds quite different. And blink never sold out(this asshole can't even talk right what the hell is sell-outing, fuckign lame ass) anyway, this album rocked and this what punk rock is supposed to be like who cares if their not all punk sounding and where clothes they made at home, their better then that. Their next album will probably sound even better b/c its good to CHANGE a little then havign all teh sam eold sounding punk abotu getting high and drinking fuck that they write abotu real shit. well im out and fuck this guy who wrote the review and any lame ass fucked up in the head punker agrees with that asshole.

i love how people say "yea, blink 182 was so punk during the dude ranch/enema days but now they sold out" blink has always been a 7th rate nofx clone and they've just gotten worse over the years which is to be expected when more money is offered.

I think this Blink cd really sucks. Yeah, Dude Ranch and Enema Of The State were good, but god does this cd suck. Blink is all about making money and being on MTV. Which is extremly common these days. What ever happened to going out there and making good music because you love to make music?

"And while I agree with you that Limp Bizkit is crap, if you're into blink and nfg, then you really aren't into punk... at all. But that's not what you meant, I hope."

i actually do like some pop punk, like those bands, but what i meant was before i listened to them i had never heard of any "punk" bands, they opened me up to the community and now i like a little bit of everything. hardcore to pop punk. except good charlotte and simple plan...they suck big ones.

M4CH1N3 (December 3, 2002)

This album is a joke. When I tell people I listen to punk rock and they tell me 'oh, right, like blink182' it really pisses me off. Buy it if you're stupid enough to think songs about dating girls and hi-school are rockin'.

Anonymous (October 27, 2002)

It's been over a year since the album came out, and I think the comments below demonstrate that opinions on this album are mixed, but everyone pretty much agrees that this is a very highly-produced album, with guitar layering and vocal effects and such, even more so then "Enema of the State." If you like the Enema sound, you'll like this. If you still think "Cheshire Cat" is the sound they should shoot for, you won't like it. Nuff said. What MUST be said, however, is that I cannot believe how many people are trying to say that Scott Raynor was a better drummer than Travis Barker! Being a drummer and an avid Blink fan, I've been listening to the drums in their songs since before they ever met Travis Barker. I have seven years of experience playing the drums, and I can say definitely, confidently, and surely, that Travis Barker is absolutely and completely a much better drummer than Scott Raynor ever was. Yes, Scott was fast -- that was his one perk. But, in case you "Mad Dog" fans haven't noticed, Travis can play EVERYTHING that Scott ever played. He demonstrates this whenever Blink plays "Carousel" or "Dammit" live. He not only plays Scott's parts as well as Scott ever did, but he actually plays them the same as they are on the album, whereas Scott often wouldn't play the difficult parts when they were playing live. Look at the video of Blink playing Dammit in Australia in 1996 or 97 -- Scott is playing a very simple hi-hat riff, definitely not the super-fast one he plays on the album. Travis, on the other hand, always plays everything live exactly the same as he does on the album, no matter how hard it is -- cause he is THAT good. And speaking of good, he has one thing Mad Dog never had: creativity. Everyone's saying Jordan from Strung Out is the best punk drummer out there... one guy even said the Saves The Day drummer is better than Travis. Well, trust me -- Travis hands them all their drums on a plate. He may be an asshole, he may be annoying with all of his stupid tattoos and Cadillacs, but Travis Barker is undeniably the most creative and talented punk drummer out there today. I don't care how fast you can play -- there's no punk drummer out there as creative as him. Seriously, just listen to "Anthem Part 2," or "Dumpweed," or even "Adam's Song" -- the drums are so complex and creative. He uses all of the cymbals in creative ways, he uses the toms for other reasons besides rolls, he's not afraid to go outside of what punk drummers are supposed to do (probably because he was in a ska band for so long). He plays on weird offbeats and he doesn't always hit the snare on the 2 and 4, but somehow, he always, ALWAYS makes it fit with the music. I would be very surprised if any Strung Out fans could find a song in which Jordan does anything near as creative as the verse or bridge of "Dumpweed." It's my challenge to you. Listen to Dumpweed first, and then find a song that Jordan plays with more creativity, timing, and all-around awe-inspiring perfection than Travis does on Dumpweed (and I'm not just talking about super-fast rolls or something, cause, honestly, you don't have to be creative to do that). Good luck. To the rest of you, if you want to hear the best punk drummer out there, buy/burn/steal this album and/or "Enema of the State." The lyrics may be going down the toilet, but the drumming is still amazing. --Jay Porter

This album, like all of Blink's other releases, is good music to put on in your car when you have friends in it which don't really like or know any other punk bands. Its a surefire winner for any preppy/alternative wannabe. I like this album heaps, 'cept it is way too overproduced at times. So I guess I'm a preppy, hardcore aswell

Anonymous (October 14, 2002)

maybe its a little late to comment, people cannot listen to a cd and tell me if its good or not if its punk or not.you just dont know till you hear it live. some synthesizers and and too much guitar layering can really crap up a good cd.the songs on this cd are awesome with the exception of the rockshow .being blink 182s biggest fan im sad to say it sounds horrible. you just have to hear it live. it will put thiongs in perspective.

"A-N-A-R-C-H-Y. His name is Captain Anarchy but only in his mind".
- Anti-Flag

I know so much people who think this way. Everybody here hates blink. So what are you doing here? I must admit this is blink's worst album, and even enema of the state was better I think. But Blink introduces allot of people to more hardcore punk. Go listen to the first albums of blink. They were still good, and even this one is good. Only the songs written by Tom DeLonge I think. I know it suck blink is on cosmopolitan and gets paid to wear Hurley or Adio clothes. But ok what I want to say is. EVERYBODY GO AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC YOU LIKE!!! It's no use to argue about who's more punk than the other. "The great thing about the punk thing is that everybody has it's own interpertation" Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day once said, and I think he's damn right. It doesn't matter if you listen to Blink or Anti-Flag (or both like me) Punk is not only a form of music, it is also a way of thinking.

Don't act like Captain Anarchy and listen to the music you like.

Blink and nsuck are EXACTLY the same. they are over produced, aimed at 13 year old girls, and glorified by MTV and mainstream radio. They both have made appearances in teen magazines, they write songs that make them sound ten years younger than they are, they dress up in their little costumes, whhether it be designer get-ups or Hurley uniforms, they have no meaning, integrity, or passion in their music, and somehow, they both sell a shit ton of records. I don't make fun of Nsync fans, or Nsync, because their style of music has been, and always will be lame (excluding male singing groups from the past such as the Temptations). Blink 182, on the other hand, decided to STEAL a style of music that was once anti everything, and proceeded to feed the masses their bullshit "punk rock",and make money.everyone ate it up so nicely, without even noticing the millon other bands that sound exactly like Blink 182, the bands that have been doing it long before, and that will be doing it long after the Blink insanity is over.

That, Rock, is why I make fun of Blink 182 and their cock-sucking, media-dulled, brainless little fad-fiend fans. enough.- FAT-MOTHERFUCKING-HEAD

fathead - ohh wow you can make fun of us blink cocsuckers in a minute- why dont you stop wasting your time making fun of us and go make fun of the nsync and backstreet boy people. i really think thats the main prob with the punk community is that we fight amongst ourselves way to much. we should be out in nsync chats telling people how much they suck. even if you dont like blink 182, at least they write there own songs, and work for there music. same with all those other bands you slam like sum 41 and reel big fish(i dont even like rbf, but at least i acknowledge that there in the punk community and that they put work into there music) i think that if all punks were a bit more open minded about punk music we would all be better off. i guessing that your response will be something along the lines of your a gay fag and you listen to shitty music but oh well.

MaybeIllCatchFire (October 8, 2001)

I really don't understand what Blink-182's trying to make us think of them (with their new album "Take Off Your Pants And Jacket).
They tell the public that they want to have a little more of a "punk rock edge" to this album; yet they and/or MCA Records has pumped-up some of the most cheezy studio effects I've ever heard! It almost sounds like the guy who reguarly mixed/edited their tracks was out sick for the day; and the only person they could find was the guy who digitally remasters Britney Spears' albums.
Also, I really wish they'd stop producing the one-line comedy tracks. It was funny the first few times when, "Tom had sex with his dad", "Mark had sex with his neighbor's dad", and so on...But they keep "joking" about that crap, and I'm suspicious.
Going back to the album review part of this post, I gave them a 4 because they've already proved that they can be serious (which makes them "a band that we can relate to), and can have some joke songs too (refer to the above paragraph)...But maxing-out the digiband album maker is pretty much a point-crusher in my book.

That is all.

Whoa there guys, this is supposed to be a place for album reviews, not shit-slinging for everything evil and wrong about Blink. True, the past two albums especially have been less "punk" than their others, but music doesn't have to be punk to be good. I'm into Good Riddance and NOFX and Dead Kennedys and the Overdrives just as much as, say, Led Zeppelin, Medeski Martin & Wood, Rage, etc... Granted, I liked Blink's old stuff better, but don't get caught in the trap of calling their music shitty purely for the reason that it's not punk, or that they were on some queer mag cover, or that they sold out, or any of that. I recently saw them in concert and while their playing wasnt' exactly the greatest, as expected, they were entertaining, and that's what the shows are all about, right? And even though they aren't underground or hardcore, especially now, they're still a "gateway punk band," if I can use that phrase. I listened to Dude Ranch once years ago and immediately started looking for other punk bands to listen and shows to go to. They aren't the best punk band, probably not even punk any more, but they have their uses, one of which is exposing other people to punk. They did for me and I'm a big supporter of it now where I live. But ANYWAY, the album I thought was decent, but again, nowhere near as good as their earlier ones. But Happy Holidays still gives me hope that maybe they'll come out with a whole album full of their older-sounding stuff eventually...

One more thing ...

Kids quit complaining about everyone analyzing whether they are punk or not. When you post a band on PUNKnews.org you are automatically classifying a band as punk and people have every right to question that.

Hell, some of you kids defending blink actually ADMIT they aren't punk. Doesn't say much for your cause.

HaHa I went to Rollingstone.com just to see what the kids are saying about this album and one girl said that Mark and Tom are "lyrical geniuses".

I practically bust a gut on that one.

icK-x-Strife (September 9, 2001)

I enjoy music with good instrumental execution and thoughtful lyrics. This CD has niether(some above-average drumming however).

Travis is the most over-rated drummer I have ever heard. Yes, he was spectacular with the Aquabats but now he only looks good because he is playing behind two of the worst musicians to ever pick up guitars.

Mark is ** 29 ** YEARS OLD and still sings about teenage love. Obviously his life stopped his Junior year of highschool. Honestly; Grow up.

I thought their earlier stuff was decent. Nothing special but still good. Now I only wish for them to start a suicidal cult and take all the 12yr old girls waving "Tom is Hot!!" posters with them. Just end it quick guys.

Why do people still have respect for this band?? I have no idea and never will. Kids try so hard to prove Blink to be punk, yet when you appear on the cover of "COSMO FUCKING GIRL" (quote: fathead) you have lost all respect in the punk community.

My Advice to Blink : save what shred of dignity you have left, and quit. Haven't you pissed on the name of punk enough?

Whether you like them or not it is an opinion. No one will change your opinion of this band, but from the facts

They are not a very good live band.
They are a mildly talented band at most.
They are very popular band indeed.
Are they punk? No.
BUT, It doesn't matter
A good band is a good band, punk or not.

I think there are tons of bands out there that are much better, but if you want to listen to them, that's alright with me. Just don't go parading around saying their as punk as fuck.

The sad thing is that if Jordan Burns of Strung Out was seen playing drums in a music video for Jay-Z or some other rapper the story would be like "What The Fuck," or if Good Riddance was hosting this years music video awards on MTV, it would sit well with the punk community. Reality check: Travis was on Puff Daddy's music video playing drums and Mark Hoppus was one of the host on the MTV movie awards...and it's you think that it's cool that they did that...gimme a fuckin break...bottom line, blink traded in their underground fliers for ticketmaster posters, from being normal guys to walking advertisments for Hurley, sorry but that is selling out.

What's the matter if they're on MTV? It's THEIR choice... you can say that they're sell out, they sucks or whatever but they're not gonna change their style just because a couple of punk are saying shit about them. Anyway, when you're listening to an album, you're not supposed to ask yourself " Are they punk?" but just ask yourself " Do I like the music?". Anyway, I enjoyed this album and I enjoyed all their other one. Also, I wanna thanks Blink cause I discovered punk with them and that's their fault if I'm listening to Strung Out, Rancid and other PUNK bands. So stop saying that a band is sell out cause I'm very bored to hear it.

OK so this album may not be great, this album may not be punk, this album may be the most pop thing blink has done to date but it isnt terrible. They could have called this album Enemy of the State; Part 2. But I really dont think Travis is to blame like a lot of people are saying he is. So blink got a decent drummer that doesnt play a repetitive beat for the whole song and has some actual talent. The band may have been more punk when Scott was the drummer but Travis is a completely amazing drummer. I saw them live about 3 weeks ago and I still cant get over Travis' drum solo. He made it look so easy but to do all that he did would be pratically impossible even for people that have been drumming for years. Blink 182 might not be the most punk but they are certainly not worth all the trouble people are going through to be made fun of, mocked, and just plain shit on. They do what they want, play what they want and have a fucking great time while doing it... Blink kicks ass!

First off, I agree with everything that "SpikedPunk" said. This band was much better when Scott was still in the band, if I was in the band at that point I would have been glad they kicked me out.

TRAVIS is a horrible drummer, he's a legend in his own mind.

I am glad I didn't pay for this album (my friend burned me a copy). I would not recommend it to any punk fan. Tom tried saying it is their hardest most punk album to date. I think he meant to say least hardest and least punk.

what the fuck is wrong with all of you dumbasses? half of you all have no idea what youre talking about. for all of you so-called "hardcore" punks, you all seem to be forgetting something. punk was a word way before joey ramone or johnny rotten were ever born, or before the electric guitar even existed. punk isnt the size of your mohawk, the harder your music is, the bands you like or the number of piercings you have. punk is a word, a state of mind, in which you do what you want to without being influenced by what other people think of you or think you should do. thats why bands like Blink 182 are punks, because they dont give a fuck what any of you think because all they care about is doing what they want and playing the music that suits them best and that they relate to. why cant any of you realize that if blink 182 conformed to what you wanted them to be, then they wouldnt be punks, no matter how hard their music would be and you would all be hypocrites. punk is about not conforming to anyone elses opinions, so how would doing what you "hardcore" punks want them to make them any more punk? If you all would let go of your hangups like "blink 182 sold out" or "blink 182 isnt punk anymore because theyre well known and people like them" you would understand that anyone is a punk if they just dont give a damn about how theyre reviewed by others or what you so-called "hardcore" punks think of them. Its a good album, and if any of you can truthfully tell me that you cant relate to even one lyric of one blink 182 song, then ill accept the fact that you truly dont like them. remember, being a punk is a state of mind, not affected by image, which is what many of have come to rely on far too much.

To the guy that called Blink an emo band...why must I share my oxygen with you? Blink is about as emo as they are ska.

SpikedPunk (July 19, 2001)

This is what I think about Blink-182.

I have been listening to them ever since they started playing underground shit in teh late 80's early 90's. there first ever CD was a great cd. It was called "Fly Swatter." I dont think any fo you will be able to get it. I sighned up for all this underground shit so thats how I got it. The quality isnt good because it sounds like they are playing in a garage which made me happy because with that and the bass guitar solos they had it was great. Atleast it was good enough quality so that you were able to here the lyrics which was also good. Now we goto Budha or however you spell it. I never got this CD but I listened to it at my friends house and it wasnt that great. A couple of songs were pretty good but not most of them. Then we go to Chesire Cat. Which was by far there best album ever. Everybody I knew got this CD and everybody liked it. Now then there was Dude Ranch. This song was just as good as Chesire Cat, but they started to sound kind of like a boyband because with half of there songs on the CD were about girls and my girlfriend and stuff like that. But still everybody I knew including me got the cd and liked it. Then the news that Scott was leaving the band killed everybody. Escpecially me. I thought Scott was one of the coolest members in the band. Now I thought Blink-182 was officially dead. A Couple of yeas later they made Enema Of The State. Which I thought was their biggest dissapointment ever. I hated this cd and thats when I took Blink-182 off my list of favorite punk bands. Then There new album came out, take off your Pants and Jacket. I didnt want to waste my money on it but I thought I would give Blink another chance. I bought the CD and thought it was ok. They still didnt make it onto my punk band list. they still ahd that poppy crap in there msuic where allt ehy would talk about is girls and taking out there girlfriends and seeing girls at rockshows. Some songs were good but not all of them.

If you read all of this thank you. Pretty long but you know i got to let my mind loose sometimes. Expecially when its about music

This CD is not punk, it is nowhere near punk, not even pop punk, not even pop rock! This is an emo CD. I don't recommend this CD to any punk fan, because you'll just think of it as pop crap. Blink is a good emo band, just as bands like The Juliana Theory. The tracks that stand out are "Stay Together for The Kids" where Mark kinda sounds like the guy from Smashmouth and "Reckless Abandon." For anyone who likes emo even a little bit, this CD is for you. However, for fans of real punk bands like NOFX or Vandals, you won't really like this CD, but it doesn't matter we all buy the CD or not, millions of other people will.

Blink 182 is nothing but a lame pop band. The guys are nothing but a bunch of fags that play for little girls. They are no better than the Backstreet Boys! They should go back to Dawsons Creek. You're not a punk if you listen to them. Oh, and Travis is a shit drummer. Darrin Phieffer could totally kick his ass!

Haha that was fun, but the REAL TRUTH is this release is not too bad, it is pretty cathcy. Of course it does not come close to Chesire Cat or Dude Ranch, but it is still alright, and Travis is really an amzing drummer, not great but decent.

i didnt say money was everything i said that blink has so much money they dont give a pennys worth of respect to you so your opinion makes no difference because theyre not gonna go away for a few years. i personnaly dont like them but i think that people should make valid mature arguments for whether they like them or not. calling me a stupid s*** without ever meeting me, talking to me, or finding out what i am like shows your quickness to judge people and your immaturity /me

Mark's half of this album is pretty good. Tom's songs pretty much suck. Travis is a very good drummer. It gets half an 8 for Mark's half which is pretty slick. Oh, and I'll leave the rest of this down here for those of you who wish to cut and paste later.

Blink 182 is nothing but a lame pop band. The guys are nothing but a bunch of [slang term for gays] that play for little girls. They are no better than [popular boy band]! They should go back to [popular television show with younger girl demographic]. You're not [inclusive group term like punk, hardcore etc.] if you listen to them. Oh, and Travis is a [describing expletive] drummer. [Drummer for writer's favorite punk band] could totally kick his ass!

All you people who rated this album with half a star or whatever you need to put aside all your pre-conceptions that blink are "sell-outs". The only reason you say this is because it's "cool" in your "scene" to NOT like blink. This album is amazing. A punk rock entity. It hasnt left my player in 3 weeks. I bet you all hate ALK3 now theyre on MTV? You dicks piss me right off. Get a life. I tell you something, If blink were signed to Nitro or Kung Fu or some other label then you'd love them. Don't even try to deny it.

i actually dont mind this one. im very surprised by that too. i dont think blink was ever a punk band but who cares? they USED to have good fast catchy songs. then EOTS was released. that cd just sucks. this one is much better but its no cheshire cat, buddah or dude ranch

Senor Potpourri,
So what you are saying is that boy bands are really great musicians who probably can play an instrument better than some jazz musicians but they don't because they don't feel like it? If Blink only play simple songs it's simply because:
a) they'll get more suckers like you to buy the album
b) they have no clue how to play any other chord besides a power chord.
So why don't you go ask Blink's guitarist to play me a G diminished 7 and then you can talk about people playing their instruments.

who cares if its punk or not? it's music. that's it! what is punk anyways? there are so many bands that sound nothing alike, but yet are still labeled punk. all these labels mean shit. the only people that should actually worry about categories are record stores in sorting their cd's.
...and the whole "sell out" argument is so tired and ignorant, give it up!

boy, who's responsible for this crappy review? I know it doesn't make much sense to argue about taste, but what Josip is writing above simply is bullshit. Okay, I agree with the first two paragraphs, but what comes after these really makes me angry.

Everybody knows that blink 182 are an mtv-band and sellout and rich kids pretending to be punk and all that. So you could say "fuck blink 182" but than you shouldn't do reviews of their records because no new record could ever make blink 182 become punk again.

but what blink 182 CAN do is try to improve their skills in writing wonderful teenage-punk-pop-songs and i think they've done this with the new record again... in a quiet impressing way.

what's the most annoying thing about josip's review is him saying that he quiet liked blink 182 before the new record. that's definitely absurd, because they still do exactly the same they did before, at least on Enema of the state. it's still what it was before. songs about being a teenager concerning everything that's envolved with this period of your youth.
so what's wrong with writing lyrics about "girls on rock shows, your first date, a lonely guy"...? especially when it's done in blink 182's way - somewhere between humor and melancholy.

hey, maybe you think i'm just a 14-year old girl trying to defend their heroes... i'm a boy, i'm 24 and i've been listening to punkrock and hardcore for almost 10 years. i love my small intolerant hardcore scene here, but i also love blink 182. you shouldn't mix these two things up.

an excerpt from senor poperi's diary-

i love blink 182, they're so hot, and they're so funny. they make jokes about penises.oh, just plain hilarious. they're new video is so awesome. not as cool as all the small things though. this is the greatest punk band ever.they have so much talent and they're songs are just sooo good. i cant wait til the rock show hits number 1 on trl. i cant wait to see them this summer. i bought 4 tickets for just under 80$, just in case i lost three of them, because you know, i am a fucking loser with no reason to exsist. i like the shittiest music a person could possibly like, and then i like to tell people that fake punk bands are cool, and that just because they're on CosmoGirl magazine, doesn't mean they sold out. My daddy butt-raped me last night....again.I hate myself.

What makes a good drummer is the songs that he plays. If Travis from Blink plays a real simple part in some song, that doesn't matter worth shit for how good he is. Say some other band has an awesome drum solo. It doesn't mean that the drummer that plays simple parts can't do that song, he just doesn't. These guys play what they wanna play. They could use their talent more, but it still sounds good. It doesn't matter how hard it is to play.

And I bet it would scare you shitless to see Lars and Tim come on TRL and beat the shit out of your precious Carson Daily. BLINK used to be good, but face it...they did sell-out.

DrNo (June 26, 2001)

I read one of these and someone listed a bunch a drummers who were better than Travis.

Travis i a very good drummer, but what do you base a good drummer on; speed, technicality, rythm, or does one base how good the drummer is on how good the other members in the band are. If you're playing with a shitty guitar player then it won't be hard for the drummer to sound good. But if you're playing with a bad ass guitar player like Luke Pabich or Fletcher Dragge or Trevor Keith and still sound like a bad ass drummer well then...you are a bad ass drummer. As far as Blink goes i don't think that Tome DeLonge is playing as good as he used to so how can you sit there and say Travis is "amazing" on this cd if Tom and Mark aren't. As far as i know there is three of them and that's what makes a band not just a fuckin drummer.(Geoff Boyardee)

It pisses me off to see and band like Blink, that has so much talent and potential, put out stuff that's beneath them and everyone who says i like this cd or it's great will have to agree with me there. They sound good, but they could sound so much better.

Oh yeah...why do some of you get so defensive about what people say about Blink. If they don't like them what does it hurt you, why should you care if someone doesn't like the same band as much as you do. If you like them right the fuck on, if you don't oh well. Who fuckin cares. I'm fuckin tired of some of you getting your panties in a bunch because someone said Blink sucks. I thought that there was only 3 members in the band, not 4 million. Fuckin grow up.

But just because you're not a "true punk" doesn't mean you can make a good point about punk music. So, all of you who think anything that ends up on the radio or on MTV is bullshit sellout bands, you are so fucking wrong. Bands can make good songs that'll make it big because they sound good, not because they've made them too poppy. Ah, whatever, I'm gonna go look at some other reviews.

I really liked this cd being punk or not punk what ever its a good cd. I don't see how people say tom's songs suck i actually like those better than i like marks. People are so worried about weither blink is punk or not that it has become more of a trend to call them sellouts rather than Blink themselves. Blink are pretty much a pop punk band they accept it i don't see why other people can't either. But i like this cd alot. The hidden tracks are funny as shit I like Anthem 2 Happy Holidays Reckless Abandoned First Date and Please Take Me Home but all of the songs kick ass. I've liked blink since chesire cat and i doubt i'll stop liking them. MTV or not Who gives a fuck remember Rancid was on mtv, oh yeah what about pennnywise, can't forget about Bad Religion, The Nobodys, UL, Less Than Jake tried, Then all these bands sold in WalMart i mean come the fuck on if you think punk is gonna stay underground think again. NOFX might as well be on a major label because they are mainstream enough to be. And if you want to bash blink about all their songs sounding the same look at NOFX. They had some good albums (Ribbed, S&M, Trash, Punk) but after that it all sucked esp when they released the Decline and The Decline 2 (Valiuum)But anyways blink is doing what they wanted to do so why give them so much shit over it you knew it before they even went major that they would if they had the chance.

So here i am reading some of your comments, and out of the blue some dumbshit had the audacity to say "Travis is the best drummer around, at least in the punk scene," Well it's obvious that who ever this was has no fuckin clue what they are talking about.

Come on lets do the list: Rory Koff(No Use); Glenn Porter(Former 88Fingers and Alkaline Trio drummer); Sean Sellers(Former Good Riddance drummer); Scott "Mad Dog" Raynor(need i say more); Byron McMakin(Pennywise); Jordan FUCKING Burns(Strung Out); Rob Kurth(Former face to face drummer); Derrick Plourde(Bad Astrounaut and former Lagwagon drummer); Danny Hildago(Off the Record); Bryan Newman(Saves the Day) and lets not forget one of the best drummers ever Danny Carey of TOOL. Tra...what ever the fuck his name is, can't hold a candle to any of these name. They need to get him the fuck out of there and bring back "Mad Dog".

You know what guys? The bashing on Blink 182 has gotten out of hand. Let me start this off by saying I was not a fan of Enema of the State. I thought the album was too much of a departure from the Cheshire Cat and Dude Ranch. (I'm not including Buddah because it's technically not a full LP release). The songs on Enema were too mid-tempo for my tastes, and the whole thing sounded overproduced. Even Mark's songs had this echo type effect, and that album was the first to introduce the distortion on Tom's voice. Travis' drumming was also too technical for the simple guitar melodies and riffs. So with Take Off Your Pants and Jacket I was hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. I listened to this album a good 20 times over before I wrote this review because I know I might be all by myself in saying that this album is not bad at all. Is it "harder" like Mark claimed...not at all. But, the album does have more passion. Check song 4, 13 and hidden track 14. This stuff sounds like old Blink. The other stuff, while being a cleaner, better produced version of their sound, is much better than Enema of the State. Most of the songs are fast, with only 2-3 being slow. Moreover the slow songs (song 7) take a more emo approach than straight up radio rock. Dude Ranch is still my favorite album by far. Mark had a great edge on his voice on that album, and it was one the best overall representation of mid-90's pop punk. Pop punk has evolved. Actually, it's pretty much gone straight to hell. Has Blink 182 sold out? Well...as BigWig says...if the music's in your wallet and no longer in your heart... What was Blink 182 before MCA...pop punk. What are they now? Pop punk. A band is a job. The primary goal of a job is to put food on the table. Well the guys in Blink can do that easily, now. If MTV puts something on the airwaves, it's going to develop a following because a good 60% of the kids out there will listen to whatever is "in", whatever is "popular". Hell...put Converge or Dillinger Escape Plan on MTV...after a few weeks kids will be calling in requesting it. I, for one, am pleased with Take off Your Pants and Jacket. It's not in the same caliber as the old stuff, but so what. At least Blink has their own style, and that is pretty rare with radio bands these days. Give me the simple, well played, pop punk from Blink over this fusion of rap/metal/pop punk/rock that plays on the radio nowadays. Give Blink a break...the songs are still about girls, masturbation, and such. The new album actually sounds pretty nice. They made it seem like Tom can actually sing...no small feat. Listen to Pants and Enema side by side. You should hear the difference. Don't worry...in a few years Blink will be off the radar. It's the radio syndrome. Blink themselves admits they're not real "punk". I wouldn't dare to consider them equal to Propagandhi or Bad Religion for a pure punk message. But you know what....Blink plays catchy, fast songs about girls and relationships, and sometimes even the toughest mohawk haircut, black torn clothed kid with rings in his nose needs something that can speak on the levels that Blink does. I like the new album.

I sorta like this album, sorta not. To me, even though the lyrics were always silly and not super serious, you could at least see their age in them. As each album passed, you could see them sing within their age (sorta).

But this album has some serious problems. You know, I don't know how they write their songs. I don't know if they each sing lyrics they wrote themselves or if they sing each others. Marks songs, for the most part, seem to still show his age in them (somewhat). Someone wrote somewhere about "Rock Show" being like their sixteen or something. Well, yeah it is, but it is still the past tense. He is retelling a "story" so he gets by with that in my book. Now Toms songs just plain suck. Not all of them, but his songs he sings sound like they are completely written for 13-16 year old crowd. An that is what keeps me from liking this album more.

Anonymous (June 19, 2001)

It's everywhere...this whole Blink situation. It's been almost 5 years since Dude Ranch was released. In that time Enema of the State, the Live cd, and now Take Off Your Pants, and Jacket have all been released, and all with a different sound. And during this run of albums everyone has most definitily stated their position on Blink.

Blink is gone...don't get me wrong, their new stuff is okay, but it can't hold a candle to Dude Ranch or Cheshire Cat. Once they stop trying to impress our little brothers and sisters and stop parading around in Hurley appearing on MTV and fucking posters and stupid shit like that, maybe they'll start focusing on playing music again. Because this whole time their real fans have been waiting to hear Tom DeLonge cry out "GO" and then have them just fuckin go off, just like they used to. I hope that by the time their next cd goes into production they'll realize whats going on, grow up and give us "Return of the Blink". End of fuckin story

Someone said that Offspring unlike Green day used pop to sell records. That's bull. Offspring was a lot harder than green day. Not that i don't like green day but still they are more poppy than the Offspring. I think it's sad that a good band like blink 182 is wrecked by the music business like that. I think "Enema of the state" and "Dude Ranch" are great albums. Though "Enema..." was poppier I still like it if i'm in that summerpoppunksongsaboutgirls mood.
That having been said I fear that the new album is too pollished. I havn't heard it but I think they've lost their sound for good.
Too bad cuz I liked them a lot.
PS Stop judging people because they listen to blink 182. They might acually listen to their music because they like it.

alright so heres my two cents. I dont really care if blink 182 is "punk" or not, cause im not obsessed with being punk, and all that crap. I'll listen to stuff that isnt punk. I like radio friendly bands like 311 and incubus, too.(oh no, im not a true punk! Gasp!) My whole point here is that i will give anything a chance... but god, i cant give toypaj a chance after hearing "the rock show." complete shit. They should be shot just for the title of the cd itself. My five year old brother could come up with a funnier title. And they need to stop writing songs like they are teenagers. That was ok when they actually WERE teenagers, but, christ, half of them are married. Im not asking them to write GOOD lyrics... but geez, they are a little too old to be writing about chicks at "rock shows" and not being able to wait until her parents go out of town. they sound like child molesters. I second the notion to bring scott back. that is all.

Anonymous (June 16, 2001)

Hey! I said that! Good argument, but I'll defend with Green Day. None of their songs, until 'nimrod' were as poppy and radio friendly as 'rock show','atst'and 'pretty fly for an original prankster'. And they're still huge!

Good counter. Yes, Green Day were a little less radio friendly but so much more than say anything from NOFX's Punk in Drublic would have been. Green Day's success came from some "catchy hooks" in their songs. Kinda what pop punk does though. Usually a nice flowing melody and some sing-a-long kinda lyrics help.

And to think that Mark Hoppus said the new able was "harder" than the others, yah right.

Very much let down with the "aggressive" style they dispay. Though track 2 was good, had a nice Dude Ranch feel. Wait, that melody sounds familiar. Anybody place where song #2 on TOYPAJ comes from? I swear I heard that somewhere before. Anyway, most of the songs Tom sings have dumb lyrics. Blink has always seemed to at least sound close to thier age mostly, but his songs just blow now. Too focused on kids. Marks aren't too bad, doesn't seem like he changed with his songs lyrics.

I know Green Day and Offspring have given much more to the punk scene, Blink hasn't done anything for the punk scene. They've just made music the way they want to. It doesn't matter if you're "true punks" or not, it just matters that they make some fucking good music. I don't even think that they should be called pop punk now that they've changed their style. They should just be called rock. That's what all bands really are.

And to think that Mark Hoppus said the new able was "harder" than the others, yah right. Definetely not as good as previous albums. Don't get me wrong there are a couple good songs, but the lyrics don't have much variation. As soon as I listened to the other 3 albums i was hooked, but this one is taking some time to like. Maybe they will change for the better in their next albums like face to face did with 'Reactionary' after a disappointing 'Ignorance is Bliss'.

they could write a good song, make a video that isn't queer, stop being walking advertisements for hurley,grow up a little, not host the mtv movie awards, not appear on anymore 17 magazinge covers, not make stupid jokes about blowjobs and penises, get a new guitar and bass player, and change their name to good riddance. that would make them punk enough for a mother fucker like me! I do agree with the other post about green day and offspring paying their dues, if anyone deserved the fame, it was them. By the way, I would never put blink on the same level as those two bands. GD and Offspring have done way too much for the punk scene to be grouped with a band who is doing nothing but exploiting it.- fathead

Blink does not blow, fathead, because you have no proof that they do or you DON'T. What do you want them to do? Sing about how evil the record companies are or how so many bands are sellouts? What could they do to be "punk" enough for mother fuckers like you?

Just to set the facts straight. Dookie has sold well over 10 million records world wide. "Smash" has sold 7 million in the U.S. alone making it the biggest selling independent release. EOTS has sold 5 million in the U.S. Your completely worng when you say Offspring used pop to get big unlike Green Day. Albums like S/T, Ignition, and Smash are much harder and serious than 1039, Kerplunk, and Dookie. The Offspring did pay their dues, I'll admit they suck now, but they were a great band for a time, Green Day are also great, but Blink shouldn't be compared to either of those groups, and don't rate bands by how much albums they sell.

Anonymous (June 14, 2001)

Hey! I said that! Good argument, but I'll defend with Green Day. None of their songs, until 'nimrod' were as poppy and radio friendly as 'rock show','atst'and 'pretty fly for an original prankster'. And they're still huge! Simply said, Green Day made their money with punk rock, while the offspring and blink are crossing the line into pop music. The last time I heard, 'Dookie' was up to like 7 million copies world wide. blink and offspring haven't sold that many albums combined. Maybe if they wouldn't make such expensive videos, they wouldn't have to release they're pop songs to pay for it. All just my opinion, but blink blows. that is common knowledge.- fathead

They have to release the most radio friendly songs. If not, they wouldn't have made enough money to cover the producer fee's, advertising and promotions fee's, productions fee's, tour expenses, etc etc etc. Then the record company would sue the band for all the money they owe, they'd lose the rights to the name, the entire song catalog, etc. Then we wouldn't have blink-182 anymore. They would have to start a new band with a new name and start from the beginning again. Doesn't sound like the most fun thing to be in the middle of.

you had no clue they were popular!do you live in a cave in western siberia. i cant get through a day without seeing these fucks on tv, on magazines, or on some 13 year old's t-shirt. I see "blink182" as much as i see "Jesus", and I live in the bible belt.

Anonymous (June 14, 2001)

Ya know what? I'm tired of all the bitching, and I want to do an entire review of the album myself...so here goes...

I had an orthadontist appointment, so I had called work and told them I'd be late, so I figured why not run up to the record store to buy the new Blink 182 album...I did...

I want to comment real fast on how everyone complains about these guys...They haven't changed a bit! The people who do complain keep saying how much they suck compared to Chesire Cat & Dude Ranch. This just shows how much you realy listened to those albums. The only thing they changed is that they have grown musically...They play their instruments well...I mean the lyrics haven't changed. Same 'ol teenage heart broken perverted lyrics they've always wrote.

For all of those who disagree w/ Blink 182 being punk, hit play on this CD, as the cd starts of w/ the second installment of "Anthem." If this isn't the most punk song they've ever wrote then I don't know what is.

I'm not good w/ the review thing so I'll just tell you, if you like Blink 182 then you'll like Take Off Your Pants and Jacket...

Face it guys...all Blink 182 did was get played on MTV, and it's catchy music, it caught the ears of a lot of people. But I've noticed it's died down a lot.

Another point I've always wanted to make...If you are so "punk" and MTV and other media are not for "punks" then how do you know they are soooooo popular? I had no clue that they get contstaly played on MTV or do all lil extras till I read news and comments on punk sites...

...and hey it's their band not yours...they'll do what they want...whether you like it or not that's what punk is about...

Check out track #11 all you Blink 182 bashers...

I haven't heard this album. I won't even have to buy it. All I'll have to do is tune into my local radio station and within the next 6 months I'll hear the entire thing. My solution is to set the volume in car to max and go deaf listening to my c.d. player. And when I am finally legally deaf I'll beat the shit out of anyone wearing a hurley shirt. And when I go to court for that I'll tell the judge that the victim was making lewd gestures that reminded me of a certain homo-sexual and then I'll tattoo an anarchy sign on my forhead and committ hate crimes in Blink 182's hometown. God I hate these bastards. Why? Because when a band changes just to make money, while there are other hard working bands staying true to form, I just wan't to beat the shit out of them for taking the easy way because it's not WORKING for them. If you don't understand you never will. Pop will DIE!!!

I wasn't going to buy this cd, but gave in anyway cause it was cheap. it is the same blink as always, childish lyrics at times, attempts at being serious at other times. Musically, it is more progressive, i don't see the more punker/harder edge, but i guess it's just me. Everyone that is talking shit about them should shut the fuck up, punk is whatever you want it to be. If they think they are punk, i guess they are. To me they are not, just a good band. The punk scene is so full of retards, hypocrites and fashion nowadays it doesn't even matter about the music to anyone anymore. If you want to get a good cd, buy it you'll like it and if you are afraid your REAL PUNK friends will ridicule you, just don't tell anyone i guess. But if you are too punk, oh well. Good music is good music, at least to me. If you want some good punk check out Saturday Supercade. If anyone really knows what true punk is speak up, but if any of you are TRUE PUNKS you would be so against the system as to not be posting and using a computer. Odd isn't it. BUY the fucking cd, you know you all want to.

Even bands like The Offspring have released some really crappy singles and still had an awesome CD(Americana) so why judge TOYPAJ already? Either buy it or borrow it from someone else when they buy it. If you're not satisfied, then you have a good reason to say the CD bites. If you don't even have the balls to try something new, you don't deserve to be allowed to speak your opinion. That's why I don't comment on reviews of CD's I don't have or aren't planning to have.

Ok I'm a Blink fan, but even I think this album is pretty bad. Not much different than EOTS, like they said it actually is a bit more punker/harder edged, but for any other band this would probally be considered going soft.
Some of the songs are good, but the album lacks a message(like all of the previous) If your a Blink fan you'll like it, but don't expect this to change anybodys opinion on them.

I guess anybody that has used public transportation is a sellout for using a form of transportation system the GOVERNMENT set-up.

I kind of agree with you.

You do have a point, but I'm saying that if a band is going to have shit all over this site they better be a punk. I'm not saying other stuff than punk is bad, I listen to Pantera, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, and Nirvana at times, but this is a punk site, for punk fans and punk bands. Bring all the other stuff somewhere else.

The best part is hw much you all waste your time reading this review and you say how much you hate and despise Blink yet you manage to read the review and then go on and give feedback on the band. Who cares what genre Blink falls under, if you like their music thats cool and if you dont thats cool too. But dont waste your time aguing how pop they are o how unpunk they are. And how is it that all of you have heard the album to make a judgement about it? You must have downloaded it from the interet which means you spent more time getting something from a band you said you hate and that you truely like the band but are in the closet about it. Who cares if they are or aren't punk listen to thier music if you wish, dont be ashamed of it. You all should come out of the closet. But I will agee with you all that TRAVIS BARKER is a flamming homo-sexual, he corrupts the very city i live in wit his presence.

I've never heard anybody say a band is "too punk." If Blink182 played only punk I wouldn't say they're "too punk" cause hell they never will be "too punk." The Bee Gees play instruments. There not a pop band? So does tons of bands that are pop as hell. Hanson for example. If you can play a guitar and write a song it doesn't automatically make you rock and roll, punk, or even metal. Blink is a poppy-punk band. I'm not saying they're horrible, but their fans should just stop trying to prove Blink182 is a punk band. THEY'RE NOT. Get over it.

Yes they are pop punk even if they play instruments. There pop punk because your ear drums will pop if you listen to this crap too many times.And i hope it was a bunch of 12 year old kids that beat up Travis to show how pathetic he is

It's not funny that Travis got beat up, but it is funny that your dick is miniscule in size. Blink 182 is not pop, neither is Sum 41. If they were pop, they wouldn't write their own songs, they wouldn't use instruments, they would use damned synthesizers and drum machines and everyone would be complaining that they try to put too much punk stuff in their music! You people all say that Blink and such bands, which are labelled as punk are too poppy. If they were more poppy than punk, you'd all be complaining that they're too punky.

Drummer nr 1 in punk is Rodrigo of Satanic Surfers (specially on "666 motor inn" and nr 2 is Jordan of Strung out.

What makes a band like Blink182 sell millions of records and a band like Bad Religion or The Stooges or Dead Kennedys or Black Flag or the Ramones for that matter, sell like shit? Is it that they're so talented? Are they great live performers that give 100% percent into every god damn show? Are they great songwriters? Can they make the catchiest songs in all of punk? Then why are they so popular....If Mark looked like Joey Ramone, and Tom looked like Greg Graffin, I honestly think they'd be nobodies. They're not a horribly awful band, but they are NOT better than 95 percent of any other punk bands out there. OK, buy the new album, but If your going to buy their album go buy ten other albums of bands that actually deserve your support and attention.

PennywiseMatt (June 1, 2001)

A step forward from the crappy pop cd, yes not even pop-punk, enema of the state, but they still haven't gotten bck to Dude Ranch, a great albu i might add. If they could get back to Cheshire Cat that would b the geatest thing ever, thas quite possibl one of the best albums ever. But this is a step, the ext is the exile of the gay homo sexual known as Travis Barker. He and Fred Durst need to go rn off andgiv each other head. BRING BACK SCOTT "MAD DOG" RAYNOR. He was the on who got Blink to where they are. Shit Scott tha aqui mofo messin wit my lady, got to b runnin chod upside his head, know what im sayin man... damn that was great.

whoever said that blink is better than fugazi is a fucking moron, fugazi unlike blink has stayed true to thier punk roots and refused to play ball for any corperation. They do things on thier own terms and dont really care if no one else likes it, they are true originators and visionaries in the punk scene. The said thing is that many people are too dumb to realize this or to try and challenge themselves with some that streches thier minds. I say forget blink and save your money for the new fugazi, or any of their old stuff that you dont have. Or at least buy a poppy band that is still underground and on a independant label, at least they really need your money.

Travis is an incredible drummer.
