About Blink 182
Blink 182 Tickets
If you’ve turned 23 in the last decade or two, there’s a good chance someone made a Blink 182 joke at your expense. The joke comes from the song “What’s my Age Again?” and goes: “Nobody likes you when you’re twenty-three.” It’s kind of a rite of passage – like people aggressively singing Taylor Swift’s 22 to you, the year before. And while most Blink 182 fans are farther from their early twenties than they’d like to admit, the band’s latest album has gained them some Generation Z fans. So if you’re a feeling-older-every-day millennial, don’t be surprised if you see some “babies” at the next Blink 182 show. Their music is something we can all enjoy!
Making the Band
Unlike the genre-similar and influential band Green Day, Blink 182 was formed in sunny San Diego. It’s made up of Tom DeLong, who plays guitar and sings, Scott Raynor on drums, and Mark Hoppus on bass (and vocals). They first got together in 1993 but didn’t put out their first real album, Buddha, until ’94. That album brought them to the front of people’s consciousness and got a lot of play on the radio. Back when Buddha first came out – you still had to buy it on CD’s – or even cassette tapes! The old days indeed. The band gained even more traction from playing two years of Warped Tours, setting the stage for their most successful album ever…
Enema of the State
If you’re a cusp millennial (born in the early ’90s), then this is the album you probably know the best. It came out in 1999 and has the song “What’s My Age Again?” that we talked about above. It also includes “Adam’s Song,” which is the depression anthem that made us all cry into our portable CD players. Though they took a lot of time off over the years, they recently put out the album Nine. It’s full of “Adam’s Song”- (esque) sentiments and will have you singing at the top of your lungs (with your door closed).
