  1. How long until he loses his mind over how successful and great the new single/album is? Was the Rolling Stone interview just a precursor for what's to come? Should we get something viral going like tweeting his twitter handle with the new single? Troll the shit out of Tom?

    Video Games Thread

    Yeah I loved that game growing up. I’m hoping they release it on 3DS at some point since the graphics look doable.

    The Beaches

    Anyone here heard them? I wasn't a huge fan when I first heard their stuff, but after seeing them live I have become a huge fan. They put on a fucking awesome live show...one of the best that I've heard in terms of comparing it to their album sound tbh. I've heard people describe them as a "female version of the Strokes" which I think is a decent description. I think they're on the verge of blowing up; they already have in Canada.

    Just discovered the band RVIVR, pretty interesting punk band. Only heard a couple songs but they're pretty solid so far.

    The Tom Delonge Meltdown Watch Thread (Meltdown Inactive)

    Travis still seems to have a fair amount of respect for Tom, though. Like in that interview he talks about what a good songwriter Tom is. So I think for that reason alone, there is a chance that Tom and Travis collaborate on something down the road.

    What's The Last Movie You Watched?

    Aquaman was all about the cheese and the over-the-top action sequences. It's not a movie that takes itself seriously at all. When they kept referring to the "ocean master" I laughed my ass off in the theatre based on how dumb it sounded. I still enjoyed it for what it was though; a mindless blockbuster action movie with terrible dialogue.

    What's The Last Movie You Watched?

    Yeah they really screwed up the film and left out a lot of important stuff from the book. One thing that annoyed me about the book was the Sixer bad guys, they were not really believable and it was just dumb. I heard the author is writing a sequel, which is totally uncalled for and unnecessary. Talk about cashing in.

    The Ultimate Recommend Thread

    The Menzingers. Currently the best punk/pop-punk band IMO. The band is incredibly genuine and honest, and you quickly get the impression that the majority of their songs and lyrics are coming from real experiences that the band has had. Their lyrics are the strongest part of their songs, but they also have great melodies. Hard to recommend just one song, so I'll just say that you should start with the album On the Impossible Past. If you prefer something more pop-punk or produced, go with After the Party.

    Game of Thrones - Season 8

    Watched this the other day: The TL;DR is that when the Night King is about to die, he will transfer into Bran's body based on his warg abilities (like the guy warging into the eagle when he died to Jon Snow). I know there's theories that Bran is the Night King, but I like this one more.

    The Stand just got announced as a new mini series with 10 episodes on CBS. @Margie Whipple's Rage @Kay I just bought the book Tranny. You read it a while back, right? How was it?

    The Tom Delonge Meltdown Watch Thread (Meltdown Inactive)

    No shit music is subjective. You're mischaracterizing the band to something they aren't, that is what I'm taking issue with.
  15. The easy answer is kicking out Tom and hiring Skiba and Feldman. But I think there may have been red flags along the way that demonstrated that either: their hearts weren't in it anymore; that they had become a parody of themselves; or that they just wanted to stay relevant and make money. Outside of the numerous issues with Tom, this always stood out to me as something that the band NEVER would have done in their heyday: While I realize that Blink probably didn't have control over this, as it was based on the director of the music video, it still is reflective of where the band was trending at the time. When you look at all of their past music videos, they are either joke/parody videos or very serious and artistic. Up All Night is trying to be serious but comes off as cringey and edgy and appeals to 13 year old girls that just had their first period and want to rebel against their parents. When you compare it to their last music video, Always (not counting Not Now as it was a compilation), it's night and day in terms of artistic integrity.

    The Tom Delonge Meltdown Watch Thread (Meltdown Inactive)

    What you're describing isn't Sum 41, but rather hardcore/emo bands like Atreyu instead. Sum 41 is a pop-punk band that has a lead guitarist with a metal background that inspired a lot of the riffs (Hell Song is a good example). They did go heavier with each subsequent release, but it worked on an album like DTLI. It's funny that you use music videos to justify liking stuff; Sum 41 had some good ones like In Too Deep and Fat Lip. Your opinion sounds like it's been tainted with your hate for edgelords and overusing the term to justify your opinion.

    Meh this just seems like a dumb hot take/edgy post. Sales and the pop-punk community disagree with you. Another great album from Jerry Finn.

    All Killer, No Filler and DTLI have aged well IMO. Never got into Chuck so can’t comment. Makes No Difference also aged well.

    Banner Pilot

    I just got into Iron Chic as well, they're a solid band. They remind me of this band that I stumbled on a few months ago:

    Banner Pilot

    This band might be the closest thing to Blink in terms of instrumentals that I've heard. The lead guitarist reminds me of TOYPAJ Tom, especially the tone/style he uses in the Please Take Me Home solo/bridge. The bassist might be my current favourite punk bassist, he carries a lot of the melodies and plays a balanced style that is a happy middle ground between overplaying/shredding and matching the guitar. To me, the bassist is a more talented version of Mark Hoppus (not a slight against Mark, but more a testament to how good this guy is). This sounds like it could be a Mark Hoppus bass line: An example of how the lead guitar is similar to TOYPAJ Tom: Favourite song is probably Spanish Reds, the chorus lyrics are really great IMO. The guy's voice is kind of annoying (reminds me of an edgy version of Bowling for Soup or other generic pop-punk bands). But other than that, I really dig the band's lyrics and bassist.

    2018 "New Album News" Thread

    Starting to look like Blink is going for a more poppy, mainstream album. They'll try to replicate what bands like Fallout Boy and Panic! at the Disco have done. Given their age, and Mark's creativity well drying up, I don't think it's going to work very well. And if it does, it will be in large part due to other song writer's helping them. The entire thing comes off as a desperate attempt to stay in the mainstream/spotlight. If this album is even more produced and fake compared to California, then this band is fucking done.

    Tried. I opened the image in a new tab, copied the image address, and that's what happened. Tried doing the [ img ] tags and it didn't work. This forum is shit for embedding pictures, and I can't upload files because of some ridiculous 0.001 kb file limit. Soooo not many options available.
