So crazy that he came up with the intro riff while trying to learn this:

Can totally hear it.

That's incredible, also my favorite Green Day song (top 5) and never heard the connection now can't unhear it.

Never would have thought green day inspired wmaa.  The whole story was cool about it starting as a joke. Kind of disappointing there was no real meaning behind the '23' thing because so many personally connect to that line myself included lol.

I mean come on. The whole guitar chord progression for the chorus sounds heavily inspired by Green Day. You’d have to be a fool to not hear Green Day influence in WMAA.

I've noticed there isn't much pro shot footage of blink from the TOYPAJ era. I know there's songs like Anthem Part 2 and the three singles of the album that had pro shot footage for TV, CD's, DVD's or whatever but I can't remember seeing them perform any other songs that were pro shot.

They did play Reckless Abandon a lot but if I remember correctly all the pro shot footages of that song seems to be from the smiley face era and onwards.

I'm aware blink did play the majority of the TOYPAJ album during 2001 and 2002, but all I ever see on YouTube are shitty videos recorded by fans using handheld cameras. It's weird considering there's shit loads of pro shot videos of blink in the Enema era and the smiley face era.

Shame because I'd have liked to hear good quality live videos of them playing Story of a Lonely Guy, Please Take Me Home, Online Songs, Everytime I Look For You, Give Me One Good Reason and Please Take Me Home.

I’ve always been bewildered by this. I’m my opinion, that TOYPAJ tour in 2001 was as good as they ever sounded live.

Am I?

I do listen to Madonna - Like A Prayer every morning and I don't know many others that do.

That’s actual my favorite Madonna song by a long shot. I think I have a new found respect for you Jan.

Oof, this interviewer is always so boring though, I always wonder who they know to get these connects

Usually they reach out to the agents ... musicians are pretty willing to talk though, Ry could probably get an interview set up if he reached out via Twitter to Mark or Travis.

A lot of these folks are approachable and totally down to chat and reminisce, sometimes it’s as simple as asking - most are flattered to be asked to come on any pod. If anyone thinks of realistic guests I should ask, as always please lmk. 
 

Mark/Trav/Tom are 100% aware of the pod, I think my best shot would be with Mark one day, but he has a “no pods” rule because he gets asked so often which I understand. (Unless of course Jim Adkins/Chris DeMakes/good friends ask lol) So just continuing to build it up until one day hopefully he wants to come on!

I think toms your best bet when he starts promoting his new album, he was on shitloads of podcasts for radio shows during lockdown... plus your already pretty chummy with his tour manager 😆
