  1. this band sounds SO much more like Imagine Dragons than BIOMY does, it's kind of weird how people have started pointing to this as an example of something good Mark is doing in comparison to Blink. It's much worse to me.
  2. That's so interesting, those were definitely my years in the wilderness as a Blink fan haha. I was SO bummed when they broke up and then only very half-heartedly followed their new projects during the breakup. AVA was laughable to me especially after Tom's batshit new persona at the time, +44 was cool but didn't quite hit me in the same way Blink ever did, Travis was becoming more of a tabloid/reality show presence, I just feel like that breakup period up until the plane crash was a time when I just had less and less interest in what any of them were up to. I wasn't into that era of pop punk music at all either which didn't help I suppose. When the plane crash happened it made me remember how important they had been to me, and shortly after there was a report that Tom visited Travis in the hospital and they all sat down and talked at some point, and it snowballed up until the reunion of course, and from then on I've happily kept them back in my life haha. Not occupying the same spot they did when I was obsessed with them and their music pre-2005 but more like the sorta crazy extended-family members who you sometimes laugh and roll your eyes at during Thanksgiving dinner but you always love them anyway haha.
  3. Yeah he's obviously not talking about "little girls" haha but it's definitely become a really outdated type of lyric. I associate lines like that with like the 50s and 60s oldies love songs, there's no doubt it gives off a more awkward vibe coming from a 43 year old in 2019 haha. But again, it's obvious that it's not about being 43 and being in love with a teenager or something so it doesn't bother me.
  4. People were still comparing HAG to Dude Ranch years later too, so strange. That song is fast but would have been a GIANT outlier on Dude Ranch haha
  5. Yeah there are genre charts and that's where Blink and most other rock bands usually make their mark. Pretty sure the only top 10 OVERALL hit Blink has ever had was All The Small Things. In comparison on the Alternative chart they've had top 10 hits with: WMAA ATST - #1 Adam's Song Man Overboard Rock Show First Date STFTK Feeling This I Miss You - #1 Down Up All Night After Midnight Bored To Death - #1 SOOHM
  6. I guess techinically yeah haha but I just meant like "the big single they push really hard with the purpose of promoting the upcoming album"
  7. The whole release of BIOMY still seems strange to me and makes me think its chart performance should come with some context: 1. At this point it's obvious that this is definitely not the big lead single of the album cycle. Based on the interview yesterday the album is still several months away and not even finished yet. It's a single they released in order to promote a tour, which doesn't really have a comparison in their careers, at least not since they joined the big leagues. 2. There isn't a music video. Since Dammit every Blink single has had one. Even Not Now had a video even though they were broken up at the time. (Wishing Well or other "promotional singles" don't really feel like they count in this discussion). Obviously music videos don't get played on MTV or anything anymore but they still end up being featured tons of music blogs and generate new #onlinecontent that gets seen by a lot of people. 3. They haven't done any of the usual promotional pushes like big magazine features, late night performances, etc. It is what it is, a song they threw out there as a stop-gap to get back on peoples' radars before the tour. It's not a great song, I don't think it's awful either, and the fact that it's #14 is pretty decent when you factor in the rest of this post. I know times have changed a TON in the music world but reaching #14 puts it right below Down (reached #10) and right above Not Now (#18), HISALP (#32) and Always (#39) as far as Alternative chart performance.
  8. Pretty rad, props to that radio station for doing this!
  9. In this scenario why are people referring to Simple Creatures as if it was a big hit that would've made Mark want to change Blink's sound? I never heard a single person talk about them outside of this board and the songs were awful?
  10. Haha Matt never showed up. #Prayers4Matt
  11. He keeps trolling by saying that Blink fans who don't like Lil Wayne are racist
  12. Haha exactly. "HEY WE GOT A RESIDENT 'BLINK-HEAD' ON THE LINE HOW BIG OF A FAN *ARE* YOU?" Favorite band of all time, love Blink! "HEH HEH RIGHT ON, SO TELL US HOW STOKED ARE YOU FOR THIS ENEMA OF THE STATE 20TH ANNIVERSARY" It's gonna be so cool to hear all those songs live, can't wait! "RIGHT ON RIGHT ON WELL THANKS FOR COMING ON AND UH, HAVE A BUD LIGHT FOR US WHILE YOU'RE ROCKIN OUT OK?"
  13. It's a radio interview, not a TED Talk haha. Go get em Jar Jar!
  14. One of my best friends is a lifelong Blink AND Alkaline fan and he is even more broken up about the whole situation than I am haha. He just wants them to go their separate ways so Matt can go back to Alkaline fulltime and he can try to forget this ever happened.
