I don't hate it, but I think it's a bit of a mess. Although, I wasn't keen on Feeling This when I first heard that and I grew to love it..... but I can't see myself loving this after a few listens. Hopefully the other songs will be better.

They've obviously chosen this song because this was the first song they had done and was promised to the fans 2 years ago.

Putting the AVA influence aside....

If this was a teaser track, I'd say alright, not bad.

But this is their fucking single. This is the one they figured would define the past 8 years that would reintroduce the world to blink 182 8 years later.  :lol: what a joke.

It fails badly. This thing won't go shooting up the charts. This thing won't return Blink to  its former glory.

I hope we get some good songs on the album and they can makeup for this.

you are such a Debbie Downer, my god, why can't you just explain how you feel, and not what you perceive the aminstream to feel.  Who cares if this gets a lot of radio play or not?  Do You like it?  I do?  Its not theres best, but it's still a great fun listen, I dunno how you can deny that.

AVA influence aside.

You really think this holds a candle to Josie, Dammit, Carousel, What my Age Again, Rock Show, Adam's song, even Feeling this?

Gets your ears checked brotha.

Sorry to be a "debbie downer" but its disappointing to me. Oh well.

IMO there shouldn't be ANY FUCKING AVA in Blink 182.

If Tom wants to write AVA songs, write them in AVA. This is shit. Travis has some good drumming and the guitar chords are decent but the entire song is destroyed by the fucking AVA pre chorus.

Tom is no longer able to seperate anything from AVA and that is a complete shame. He is no longer able to write a song without drawing on AVA.

What a fucking shame. I feared this would happen. I've feared it for 2 years and now its time to face reality.

stupid post is stupid.  you're asking for there to be no ava in blink, but by doing so you therefore ask for no blink in AVA which in turn means noblink in blink.  Come on man, Asthenia could just as easlily have been an AVA son gand you know it.  Plus if blink never broke up, you know that instrumentally, the next blink song would have sounded a lot like WDNTW.  Stop being so negative and open your hoirzons.  Just cuz the sound is similar to AVA, doesn't mean it sucks like AVA.

Oh please. Nothing on Untitled could have been part of AVA. You can't say that Blink's next step was what AVA became. Plus 44 was NOTHING like that.

disagree, we know WDNTW was built on a foundation of blink songs, and Asthenia more than anything sounds very very AVAish, don't know how you can disagree with that.

Only gotten the chance to listen to this song once because I'm in class, but does anyone think that it doesn't sound like a single?

It's still a great Blink song, but it just feels like it would be a lesser known Blink song on the album, rather than the first single to be released.  Not all that catchy, but once again, I've only listened to it once.

I really like it though, good to know Blink still holds very much the same style as before.

I agree, its a very good song, I don't think this was their best choice for a single, but that could be because not enough of the album

was finished, or its just an album that doesn't lend itself to a decent single, like the rest of the album is just as good, but ther isn't any one stand alone brililant track type of deal.

Either way I'm happy.  I think it's the former, where they still have to finalize most of the other tracks and this was the only finished product.

I agree with the statement that I just can't see this being on the radio too much, or being too popular, but for fuck sakes its new blink after 8 years and I can say that I've listened to it maybe 15 times now, learned the entire thing on guitar, and I just could not be happier. I absolutely love it. I could just be that I love blink too much that keeps me from not liking anything they do, but its growing on me so much. I hope they get a more catchier single that can promote this album, but from the sounds of this song I'm really looking forward to the album. To the people saying it sounds too AVA, its supposed to! They've all talked about how the new material draws on all of their projects, maybe this song does a little more than some of the other songs. I'm very happy about it.

I'm hoping, if worse comes to worst, this album is to Blink 182 as Relapse was to Eminem.  They're rusty and this album just greases up the wheels for a great follow up (Eminem with Recovery).  This might be a transitional album for the better.

I love it, but I definitely think it leaves me feeling like I wish there was one more verse or just something more than the back and forth (pretty short) verses and the quick chorus.  I just wish there was more of them, lol.  After 8 years, I pretty much knew that when I heard the new song I was going to wish I could hear more.

Still, I love it.  Got the chills, teared up, everything.  Felt great, awesome moment.

This is blink, the amount of time they've been gone they could release nearly anything and have it chart well. The second single will be the true mark IMO.

The first single will sell through the roof because it's blink returning from the dead. Once that hype dies down and the album/second single are released people will be buying it on it's own merits, not just because it's the first thing they've come out with in 8 years.

i loved replase....whats not to like about "I was born with a dick in my brain, yea fucked in the head"

i'm pretty sure the majority of blinks hardcore fans favourite songs won't be the wmaa, rock show, feeling this's of the album.....heres your letter was my fave track and that was never in contention to be a single

I think it's fucking awesome.

Yeah I'll admit, it's not as good as I hoped the first single to be.  There's parts where the background noise should be quieter and the guitar should be louder.  The sound quality is brutal.  But it's stuck in my head and it's not going away.  It's a fucking blink-182 song.  Tom and Mark's voices together sound amazing.  The vocals are great.

It's much more BCR than it is AVA sounding, that's for sure.

at first i thought, well it's okay! but it's such a grower, seriously! i listened to it about 15 times and i fucking love it.

the only thing that could be better is toms voice in the prechorus, thats really ava and unnecessary
