Im extremely curious how some of you got into blink way late when they weren't in their peak.

I got into blink really late, 2010 I believe, but kinda funny how it was...

 

I remember that around 2004, I was like 9, and would only listen to I Miss You. Forward years after this, I had 2 "blink" songs on my playlist: I Miss You and My Own Worst Enemy (NOT a blink song, its actually by Lit, but it was there named as a blink 182 song, lol).

 

Since I really liked these two songs, I ended up searching for more blink stuff, and realized that everything was great... Started to listen to all of their albums and just fell in love with the band.

 

Sucks that I wasn't a fan in their prime tho

I got into them around Take off your pants and jacket, but it wasnt super serious seeing as how i was like 10. Always kinda liked them but then it was about grade 11 i think when i really got into them. About 2007. Ive been crazy about them ever since.

I would say they were role models for me around the end of high school too. From back when they were huge though. Now i couldnt really care less about what they do outside of music

i mean, i guess i was. i think i'm a little younger than most people on here. i loved ATST on the radio as a kid, and WMAA too. it wasn't until a friend of mine re-introduced them to me when i was 15 (2008) that i dived headfirst into blink fandom. it only got worse in the two years after that, and i'm still just as in love with them today as i was 7 years ago. blink, like, does something to my brain. it's like crack. i can listen to it at any time, even though i've heard each song literally probably tens of thousands of times.

I got big into blink when TOYPAJ came out. Found them out when i got NOW 3 lol. Ive for the most part grown out of them, but almost anything pre 2005 i can put on at anytime, never feel like skipping a blink song. Idk if its the memories that go along with the songs or what, but they don't get old. I remember joining this forum idk I think 04, and here I am still checkin back to see whats up with this stupid band lol

I want to say that I got into blink around 2010-2011ish, judging by when I registered here. I had WMAA on my mp3 so I was somewhat familiar with them. I was watching Loaded (or whatever show that played their videos and talked about their history), which was featuring blink-182 on FuseTv and the host mentioned AVA. I don't know why but I searched for them on Youtube one day and remember being in awe of what I heard, which was The Adventure, Start the Machine, Call to Arms, etc. I look back and laugh now but back then I thought it was so fresh.


 


After some time I looked into blink's discography after exhausting AVA's and I soon wanted to hear more. I remember thinking that Feeling This was such a odd sounding song, mainly because of Tom's vocals. My interest grew and grew and now I guess I would call myself a fanboy lol. So yeah I got into them pretty late and after digging AVA first. :grin:


 


Edi: Now I want to say it was around 2008-2009 because I got into them a few years before I graduated (2011) and before Neighborhoods was released. So yeah, around then.
