The blink 182 general discussion topic


Recommended Posts

That's possibly the best blink bootleg. I think its the same setlist as the Mark Tom and Travis show. Way better since it's not edited, funny banter with the 21+ crowd. 

I like when Tom's string breaks during Dammit but he gets a new guitar just in time for the chorus. Mark yells in happiness and Tom starts laughing.

Finally got this painted up, I think it turned out pretty nice!  

holy fuck I'm shaking.  Producer calls me at 12:15 says he'll be calling back in about an hour.   Called at 1255 and it was Mark pretending to be the producer, I mentioned  how blink-182online wa

I had completely forgotten about this performance:

It's like Big Day Out but on speed, out of a 80 minute set I'd say about half of it is music and the other half consists of them being idiots.

Pretty entertaining!

i have not seen this in years. it might’ve been one of the first blink videos i ever watched. going to have to sit down and watch again haha

that's the casbah, a classic 21-up alt rock club in san diego. i've seen everyone from the dismemberment plan to unwritten law there.

edit: i just watched the vid. terrible performance. is this a nostalgic clip for some of you folks, as @boxelder mentions?

i think it was one of those full blink shows on early youtube, back when i first got into the band in '09 or so. just found it so funny. not as great as big day out, surely, but both are classic examples of how sloppy and stupid this band was, in an endearing way

Yeah, I got into the band in 2005-2006 and I believe this and Big Day Out were my first encounter with the stage banter and I thought they were hilarious and cool. I was 14 in 2006 and 14 years later I no longer think they were the greatest comedians or coolest people but it's fun to watch this with nostalgia glasses.

Around the same time in  2006 I also found this video and it made me question if it was the same guy in both clips:

That clip has always been so weird to me.. it sounds like shit but still I connect deeply with it emotionally

I think it's a more well known bootleg than others since it's during the Enema era and the entire show is on video, it's always been easy to download or view over the years. 

Do you prefer the shorter setlists of the older shows or is it just the newer songs you don't like? I personally think Mark and Tom sometimes get too tired and sloppy with shows over an hour.

it's tough to say. i think this particular show at the kasbah is an objectively bad performance, though it is a nice novelty to have a record of. if i had a magic wand, i'd wish for a blink that was more like bad religion live. about an hour and a half, diverse set offerings, many deep cuts, constantly inventing themselves.

though i grew up with them and i love them, it's a fair statement that blink are lazy and unimaginative live. they were like that in 1999, they were like that in 2004, they were like that in 2010, they were like that in 2016, and they are like that now.

Hmm is this the most dead period of this site in years or does it just seem like it? Nothing going on in Blink-land (understandably) but in past down periods we at least had Oliver here to stir up some controversies. Anybody know what he's up to lately?

I pop in as much as I can but even I'm thinking of checking out the other forums on the site. It's just hard to care about blink these days. There's so many other amazing bands that need our support. And, yknow, the pandemic. It's put a lot of shit into perspective and worrying about a bunch of rich, feuding 50-year olds in a 90's band seems petty these days.

I enjoyed Nine for what it is but i'm definitely not even remotely excited for the next blink record or EP or quarantine song or guest vocal or whatever the hell Mark and Travis are doing with the band these days. Will I check it out? Sure. But blink truly wowing me across an entire record is long over.

I don't even think Tom coming back would get me pumped like it did back in 2009 because it'll be the original reunion 2.0, only now Tom will have a low-budget movie to sell rather than modlife.

I don’t know if this has been discussed yet, but Mark recently confirmed that blink asked Green Day to do a Pop Disaster 2, and Green Day declined. Not surprised at all that GD didn’t want to do this with the current lineup. Funny that blink thought to even ask, IMO.

Green Day wouldn't want to do it even if it was the old line up. They hated Blink and the last Pop Disaster tour.

Yea, I know. But especially given how much blink fell off, they don't even seem like blink...it makes sense. Now to play devil's advocate, GD did agree to do that tour with Fall Out Boy before Covid happened, which is strange. FOB is and has always been way more lame than blink, and they basically turned into an electronic band..but yet GD likes them? Seems weird.

Green Day fell off as hard if not harder than blink. Green Day most likely wanted to be top dogs on this new tour so they picked bands that allowed them to be that. With blink it would’ve been co-headline again.

Oh please, you’re letting your love of blink blind you. Green Day has been bigger than blink for all years except 1999-2003. No way in hell it would be co-headline.

Dude for all of the shit California and Nine get, you can't tell me Green Day is even in the same realm anymore with the absolute piles of garbage they've put out since American Idiot.

Based on commercial sales, yes I sure can. When do you see blink on commercials or hear them on the radio? I know I’ve seen Green Day promoted a hell of a lot more. I love blink a billion times more than I care for Green Day, but some of you are allowing that love for blink to skew your opinions

After Green Day released the trilogy of flops they fell off hard and nothing they’ve released since then has brought them back.
