    The blink 182 general discussion topic

    All in fun, I think it's mostly funny because of Mark mocking Tom's also-goofy dancing in AVA over the years.

    Yeah for sure, he would have been fucking crazy to think that was a possibility in 2016 but maybe he's more ruthless than we've imagined haha. It's possible he was more interested in that Fall Out Boy type of reinvention as a pop act than re-establishing Blink 182 as a cool pop/punk/rock band, which as a genre obviously doesn't get anywhere near the same type of radio play as the 90s/early 00s.

    Eh I don't know, California was a #1 album and is their only #1 other than TOYPAJ, Bored To Death was their first #1 single since I Miss You, I can't imagine he expected or even hoped for bigger mainstream success than that. I do agree that it seems like he's aiming for a whole different type of pop hit now but I can't imagine it's because he was bummed about Cali.

    Definitely better than the first one because it isn't aggressively ear-splittingly obnoxious, but still not my cup of tea. So interesting to hear Mark straight up going for pop stardom in 2019. Beyond the last song's comparisons to Fall Out Boy this one DEFINITELY sounds like it could be a pop radio hit in that vein of like One Republic or Bastille or whatever. They know what they're going for, that's for sure.

    The Tom Delonge Meltdown Watch Thread (Meltdown Inactive)

    I honestly have no idea, the previous report was picked over when it came out and I think someone said it's not great but not nearly as drastic as it looks to non-accountants haha

    What album?

    As someone living in perpetual frozen tundra winter right now I'm just jealous that you have a yard to mow

    The Tom Delonge Meltdown Watch Thread (Meltdown Inactive)

    Haha that's awesome man, teasing aside it's interesting to hear the perspective of someone who heard all of his stuff at once instead of being a Blink fan first!

    The Tom Delonge Meltdown Watch Thread (Meltdown Inactive)

    I have a weird relationship with AVA because I somehow was able to make a pretty clean break after Blink broke up the first time. I was obviously curious what the former members of my favorite band were up to those first couple years, but once I saw Tom's nonsense interviews and I heard the first AVA album I knew I just wasn't interested at all. Same went for Travis's reality show haha. I liked +44 more but wasn't nearly as obsessed as I was with Blink. That mid-2000s era was pretty weird for each of them and also happened to coincide with a golden age of indie music that I was all in on. As AVA went on I checked out I-Empire and liked about 5 songs, then never listened to a full album of theirs again until Dream Walker, which was because Tom was back in Blink at that time so I got curious I guess. That didn't grab me either though. It's kinda weird to have one of my favorite and most influential singer/songwriters have an entire catalog of music that doesn't interest me at all haha, but it's just never worked for me. ....I'm still very interested in what he puts out next haha.
