[Song Discussion] - Anthem pt. II

The opening track of Take Off Your Pants and Jacket led by Tom. The instrumentation in the song is all around good with capable verses and a strong chorus. Lyrically this song shines as a great introduction continuing off where Enema of the State left off. In Part 1, the song discussed life on a sma...

[Song Discussion] - Voyeur

Track #2 from Dude Ranch with Tom having the lead vocals. The riff and melodies are simple enough to make Tom's lyrics easy to hear. I like how the guitars amp up during the second half of the verses. The chorus, from a sonic perspective, is pretty average - nothing special, though I like Mark's &qu...

Re: blink-182: Song of the Day

I'd rather not have a mega-thread with 200 pages in it. Those get spammy. Also, I want people to be able to search for threads. I do think there should be limits. I don't think there should be more than 5 or 6 song discussions on the front page. As for the pattern, I pick the song randomly. I try do...

[Song Discussion] - Easy Target

This relatively song off their Untitled comes late in the track listing, and in between tracks like Here's Your Letter and Asthenia, Easy Target is often forgotten. I like this song a lot because it's a straight to the core punk song, but it has the DNA of Untitled (raw, but clean, somewhat aggressi...

Re: [Song Discussion] - Disaster

It's definitely true that this song is indicative of an identity crisis. In 2012, they couldn't be pop-punk teenagers forever and the formula was getting old. Tom had been informed by AVA, Untitled, Box Car and such. The direction of new Blink, before Skiba arrived, was very shaky. But it also enabl...

[Song Discussion] - Disaster

I'm thinking of making a series in which every so often we can discuss a random song. It starts out with a noticeably warm and quick bass riff with some moderately paced but heavily executed drumming and alien outerspace-like synth. Added, is Tom's AVA-like guitar riff. Vocally, Tom delivers higher ...

Re: Pixies

Pixies was probably the best band to come from the 80's.

I'll avoid new Pixies because it's basically just a Frank Black solo album.

Re: Uncanny similarities between The Beatles and Blink 182

When it comes to similarities, the only thing I see ... were the lead singers And that they have a similar songwriting dynamic of one being the stable one who wants to play the same music and the other being the inconsistent avant-garde. Then, like John and Paul, they had a falling out, as did Tom ...

Re: California Official Discussion

I can't understand the hate. I don't agree with the process. How some songs were made. I still feel like the album is very blink. You compare this to ToyPaj or Enema its very much in that vein. . ppl athey always say what blikn is what blink isnt. this ios not bliknk. its not blink without _____ an...

Re: Uncanny similarities between The Beatles and Blink 182

I mean, yeah I guess you could find similarities if you looked hard enough, but I urge caution when bringing The Beatles into a conversation as a base of comparison. The Beatles changed the culture of the world and impacted music for all of modern history. Blink has had a very curious and unique im...

Re: Is "California" a step forward, step backward, or status quo?

While California is nostalgic, I don't agree that it's Blink trying to be something its not. It doesn't feel like they're trying to artificially engineer their music to what it used to be. It just sounds like three guys having a lot of fun, working together and making good music. I never got the imp...
