    Would you go see Blink 182 live?

    I don't know why it's so shocking to people that Mark Hoppus + Matt Skiba + Travis Barker + John Feldmann would be able to write a bunch of songs when at the studio 18 hours a day for 2 months? They are all very creative people, Skiba is a brilliant song writer and John lives and breathes this stuff. Hell I come up with a new melody or chorus idea almost every day at some point and I'm a computer nerd at a desk in Indiana. I have no problem with the "first thought, best thought" approach, it's a technique to get the creative juices flowing and you can always scrap or refine afterwards. I'm sure there was tons of material that didn't work and they scrapped it, but also some good that comes out of it - which may not have happened if you're staring at a notebook second guessing everything.

    This is a valid complaint, but 1. Tom is gone (so there goes most the humor), and 2. As mid 40's musicians, they decided to sound the best they could w/backing tracks as opposed to raw dogging it. (They did this before Skiba, so it's not unique to this era). I don't think anyone prefers 2018 Blink over 2001 Blink, but things have changed so it's a matter of getting NOTHING or something. I choose the latter, as I've had plenty of good times with the band/shows/songs/community in the past 3 years that wouldn't have happened otherwise. They were in the studio from 7am to 3am the next morning for 2 months straight recording California, so to say they weren't passionate or tweaking things to make them perfect isn't valid. I'm sure they tried plenty of different lyrics/choruses, SOOHM they said went through 5 different choruses and they kept going at it as they wanted it to be perfect. You can sing your lines a million times, the Feldy processing you hate would be there regardless. This is fan fiction to justify hating Cali/current Blink direction IMHO. For every "TAKE YOUR TIME AND CARE MORE!" style post, there is a counter argument that they pooped out Rock Show and First Date in a day...which are 2 of their biggest hits. I actually really like Skiba's live tone, it's the main thing he brings to the band live IMHO.

    The blink 182 general discussion topic

    Ehhh that looks about the same to me, just buzz cut so it looks better. I'd probably go with this look, rock a hat, or pay for hair transplants. Get in touch with LeBron's peeps. I remember that first Kerrang magazine from the Cali era, Mark totally looked like he had Botox... not sure why he would be opposed to hair transplants if so.

    Disagree with that part, many enjoy California - their new original* music (*unless you're trying to take this down the Feldy rabbit hole), and current act. So I don't know how any aspect of current Blink could be considered a "failure", other than a vocal minority disliking the direction, hating Skiba, or hating Feldy.

    Blinkbots? As in big fans of Blink? Well yes, I'm sure there will be big fans of Blink that go to Blink shows...? Not sure what point you are trying to make there. Did you expect Creed fans to fill GA? I'm totally fine with people hating this entire era, refusing to go to shows, etc. But to act like current Blink is some monstrous failure is what is hilarious to me. If they were as awful as people make it out to be, no one would be at the shows, or buying records. I have been to plenty of Cali era shows and had a blast, along with thousands of other people. So while I prefer OG Blink as most do, I'm very pro "It's-Ok-To-Like-Current-Blink-And-Acknowledge-They-Are-Successful", whereas the thought of them being successful without Tommy Boy sends many of you into panic.

    My clip, was miserable should've stayed at home watching Brendan Dassey and his mom say "Yeahhhh" back and forth. Surely the record company paid for all these people to be there, there's no way anyone would pay ~$60 to be this miserable!

    ^ is that Speedo? Was he baptized or something? Again, I was *there*. Great crowd, big pit going most the show a bit further back. You guys are lame or cheap as hell if you'd rather watch Netflix than catch Blink nearby IMHO.

    Crowd was energetic, I was *in it*. It's showing that people are having a blast at current Blink shows. If they are as awful as everyone here claims, it would've just been me and Famous Burrito on the floor. Or did the record company buy these fans and successful shows as well?

    Miserable crowds at my shows, should play retirement homes or retire IMHO. Wouldn't drive 10 minutes ffs. *potato quality*

    Shocking, 11 people who hate current Blink and complain about them everyday wouldn't pay to see them live! Thankfully you guys are in the extreme minority. Of course you can pick any subject in the world and find comments on the Internet of people hating it. According to many of you, Blink should be playing at retirement homes in front of 20 elders. Amazing that they seem to sell so many tickets and albums still??? Awesome shows, was sold out both nights! First night had a great mosh pit going. I will say Obvious was super random, don't think most people had really heard it.

    You can't compare the two, because as I pointed out above Mark clearly doesn't count DLX as a "new album". It didn't have singles, radio promotion, videos, etc. So for your example to work, you would have to compare that to OG California, and yes, that would be crazy if they didn't play BTD/SOOHM/KOTW/Cynical/etc. right after release... but they did. I see what you are saying, and I wish they viewed DLX as a new album and played more of it live, but for whatever reason Mark doesn't, so the same logic can't apply. Trav even wanted to play more of it live but got vetoed.
