I actually saw Puddle of Mudd last year won free tickets to their show here in town. Was more impressed by the other bands on the bill. We ended up leaving half way through their set lol. 

They played BatFest a few years ago in Austin and everyone ignored them.

Wow, I swear Puddle of Mudd used to be a decent live band. Only ever liked 3 songs by that band and that was just the 3 singles from their most famous album.

Dunno what on earth happened to his voice in recent years, but they definitely used to be a decent live band.

I assume drugs and alcohol.

it's quite an accomplishment to take a shitty song and make it even shittier.

Yeah, I've always felt that guy doesn't have a good idea of how a BCR song should sound. For starters, they never sound like BCR. And his verses all of a sudden go so quiet and just don't fit in well with the heavier intros. I know BCR often had quiet verses and heavy choruses/intros but the quieter verses always worked and fit in well with the rest of the song.

His covers always sound like completely different songs too. I get people should have their own spin when it comes to covers, but you should still be able to tell what the song is IMO. If the guy never had the Tom vocals and the description in his titles, then I'd just guess it's one of his own songs.

At least with blink covers like A Letter to Elise & Another Girl Another Planet, they sounded like blink-182 songs but you could also tell they were covering those songs. The riffs, melodies and everything were still the same.

I do think that guy did a decent AVA styled Up All Night Cover though.

They used to be actually one of the better, he was a good vocalist that's what's so unfortunate this went viral

his approach reminds me of those clips that take a major key song and make it minor, or vice versa.

Yeah, definitely. I feel like it works for them songs as well as BCR and +44 but I can't help but feel that the BCR styled covers he's trying just sound weird after the riffs.

I used to love "Blurry". Still think it's in the "decent song by shitty band" category.

Yeah, I legit like some nickelback songs but it doesn't make me think nickelback are actually any good.

Since we've been in lockdown and I've been working from home, I've been blazing the untitled album. It's absolutely glorious, I always thought Dude Ranch was my favourite album, but honestly, Untitled is god tier. 

What I wouldn't give for the true follow up album to Untitled.

Maybe its the quarantine talking, butI actually think they still have it in their locker (Mark, Tom and Travis) if they actually focused solely on making music and hired an old house again.

The fact that they wrote some of the best songs on Neighbourhoods in one of the few 3-day in-the-same-room stints proves they deffo still have that ability, that musical chemistry hasn't waned I don't think, just their objectives and what they see the band as. Making of Untitled is the GOAT lockdown watch

Absolutely, I would just love for the 3 of them to do it again, even if it was one last album and one last tour and it meant that was the end of Blink, I'd die happy. Neighborhoods was ok but it just feels so disconnected.

So, @daveyjones and I spoke for 4 hours last night and haven't even gotten into the Josie video and Scott's departure... (Lasagna was covered.) This may become a #saga.

 

 

@daveyjones and I met up once before he moved out of Cali, and god damn, it was like meeting up with a blink museum curator. Super nice guy too. Seriously is the real deal and probably the best source of old info of blink on these boards.

He's a legend for sure and I'm glad that he's part of our blink community, really glad to have his insight and point of view here, much appreciated!

Can't wait to hear his episode!

I had the same thoughts after DED, I still feel that an album full of songs written and recorded by the three of them in the same room would be an amazing thing, even by the today’s version of them.
