  1. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    Holy shit that looks gnarly! Hasn't he had throat problems in the past as well?
  2. Feldmann

    Totally agree, I don't mean they became more relevant than EVER, just more relevant than the dead-period that preceded California, and the really slow crawl of the Neighborhoods era that didn't produce giant hits like Bored To Death (or their old even bigger hits).
  3. Feldmann

    That's well-said, however I think Feldmann is the only one who has come out with more credibility than he had before. He had success with shitty pop bands and now he gets to glom onto the Blink name and it probably feels pretty cool. Blink and Skiba both got a bigger taste of pop relevance/visibility/money but it seems like their reputations among hardcore fans took a hit from the Cali era. I know that's something this board will never see eye to eye on haha but that's DEFINITELY the sense I get from the outside world.

    Haha I'm not sure Travis has even mentioned ska publicly since leaving the Aquabats, let alone thinks of himself as an "OG rude boy"
  5. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    Not sure, but at the exact same time Rock Against Bush came out, Tom was literally campaigning for John Kerry. So I don't think it's quite fair to think they were afraid of losing fans who liked Bush.
  6. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    Yup same here, always kinda surprising to see people saying shit like "snowflake" and hating liberals on a Blink message board haha
  7. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    They like it man. We can't blame it on the suits or the label. The Mark+Travis+Skiba+Feldmann model is how they prefer to run the band now. They just released 30 songs that way in less than a year, after taking nine years to release the previous 30. Obviously a lot of us think the new iteration sucks, but unfortunately there's just no way we can pretend "our band" is still in there somewhere taking orders or under some outside control. This is the Blink that they want, these are the songs they want to be writing and releasing now.
  8. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    Some people like Feldmann, some people don't, but regardless I don't see any way they work with a different producer next time. I remember a lot of people wondering if he was basically a label plant but the ship has sailed with that theory, they just straight up love the guy and the Blink 182 music they make together.
  9. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    Have we gotten any info about Travis's documentary, other than knowing he talked to Tom for it? Like, what it's about, release date, how it's going to be released?
  10. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    Man I forgot how shitty the bridges were on that EP, especially Disaster. It's like they were reserving that spot to come up with something for it later, counted wrong, then said fuck it we'll just copy/paste a drumroll and a chorus and call it good haha
  11. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    I like the direction they were going in on DED but none of the songs have stuck with me very much. Definitely seemed like it was going to be a great stepping stone though, they were focusing in on a more natural sound than the sorta all-over-the-place vibe of Neighborhoods. Then they obviously left behind that sadder twinge to their music on California.
  12. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    They love the guy, love his factory approach, love his production style, and love what he writes for them. That's just what Blink is now and there's sadly nothing we can do about it. siiiigh...............................
  13. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    Fuuuuuuuucck I wish that would somehow get released.
  14. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    I'm not 100% positive on how this works, but I believe you get paid royalties when a song you "own," AKA have songwriting credit on, gets sold or performed. Tom obviously doesn't have any songwriting credits on California, so I don't believe he would have any reason to get paid any royalties from the album (other than some sort of payment to use the name Blink 182 like some people have suggested)
  15. What Are You Listening To Right Now Pt. 2

    @Kay That was the first song that got me hooked on his music a couple years ago and he's become one of my absolute favorite artists since then. If you like his solo albums go back and dive into his old band Bomb The Music Industry too! Enjoy!
