The blink 182 general discussion topic

Recommended Posts

Always thought that it was quite cool that Mark and Tom were wearing a Dance Hall Crashers shirt and Unwritten Law shirt in the M&M's video and then 3 years later they mention those bands in Josie :)

that is super weird how none of them noticed it

Anyways, doesn't look looe a big deal, as far as it seems like nobody noticed it over all this years until someone pointed it out in 2018 :P

Other than that, my bet is that they sent the wrong version of the song. Like a not final one or the working one. I'ms saying this because I can't believe he passed that mistake on the studio, when we knoe they hear isolated tracks over and over and over. So, maybe they had the ggod one ready to go, but just sent the bad one for the final master. Shit like this happens from time to time.

Similarly, is anyone else bugged by how “alone” is kinda cut off at the end of the first chorus of I Won’t Be Home for Christmas?

This reminds me of this Reddit thread about little nuances like this in their songs. Pretty interesting read, especially if you hadn't heard them before.

Holy shit, I've never noticed some of these. Didn't realise the riff in the intro of Dumpweed was slightly out of time. Sounds like the hi-hat and riff don't stick in time with each other now that I hear it. If it wasn't for that reddit thread I wouldn't notice that at all haha.

Does Scott Russo actually do a bunch of backup vocals on Dude Ranch? Listening now to see if i can tell. 

Also i never knew what mark was saying in violence. I could hear it but never paid attention to it. 

Edit: can kinda hear the russo thing but it also just sounds like mark.

yes. i don't know about "a bunch" but he's on there. most notably in the outro "wah wah wahs" on untitled.

I know this isn't blink but it reminded me of the whole discussion about Mark changing the lyrics to Apple Shampoo. What do you guys think?

It's in part because of the line "Once a whore, you’re nothing more/I’m sorry that’ll never change"

Every song that has ever offended someone should either be censored, changed, or never played live or on the radio EVER again.

I don't have an issue with the lyric itself, the song overall is quite childish. As a songwriter though, I can totally see where she's coming from. She probably feels very embarrassed by the song overall not just that lyric, purely from a 'catty girl aggressive bullshit' perspective. She's not a kid anymore, it's an ugly representation of being a teen and Paramore have grown up a lot thematically since then. I can see why fans would be pissed though, it's like their biggest hit. But you can still listen to the record, and there's a loads of old live recordings. No one is really losing anything. Her song, her band, her choice.

A ton of bands usually kinda denounce their early stuff as childish and stop playing it entirely.  Not sure if anyone here has ever been a fan of Bring me the Horizon but they never play anything off of their first two albums anymore, same with The Devil Wears Prada for the most part.

pretty much agreed. As someone who has wanted to see Paramore for the past ten years and has always had something get in the way of me seeing them when ever an opportunity to do so arises, I'm a little bummed that if I do go see them now that I won't get to hear the song that made me like them in the first place. But, eh. Nothing is as bad as being a longtime blink fan and wanting to hear deep cuts live lol.

I mean blink still sings "need a girl that I can train" so changing Apple Shampoo lyrics always felt super overblown to me. Wouldn't change my opinion at all of the rendition if I was lucky enough to hear it live. Especially when Tom sang "I'm so sick/of blowjobs/I hate them" in Always.

Sucks for Paramore fans. We went through the same bullshit with Adam's Song.

Didn't Adam's Song finally make a comeback? I could be remembering incorrectly but I swear they played it with Matt at least once.
