I forgot it was actually Backstreet Boys - Nsync - 98° - and Blink 182 that led the way back in the day.

Your opinion doesn’t really matter because your brain is faulty. It’s ok though it’s not your fault

First of all, I don’t have a truck. Second of all, there’s nothing wrong with them. Go tell that to Your lord and Savior Tom, he literally drives F150s and all you do is suck him off over lame and mediocre songs like Rebel Girl. You think feeling this is vintage blink, and claim ATST isn’t poppy. You’re dumb as fuck

It's not fun to think about but yes, there was a short time when Blink definitely had some kind of label PR pushing them out to cheesy teen pop-culture magazines along with all the boybands and starlets and makeup tips.

This is certainly not where I found out about them, but I'm sure quite a few people did:

Thank you for taking the time to put this together. Just solid proof of what some people here are in denial of. It was clear as day they were being pushed like that, and At least I know for certain Tom has acknowledged and admitted it (although he claims he wasn’t happy about it). Yet some fools on this board will still try to act like this wasn’t the case.

Yeah it just took about 30 seconds of googling haha. I think it feels weird because I assume pretty much none of us here knew of Blink because of that kind of marketing in 1999/00, definitely don't associate them with those kinds of acts, and maybe didn't even realize it was happening at the time. But you're right that Tom and Mark have talked about how much they hated that portrayal and fought against it after feeling like they were a part of a label "machine" at that time.

Yea I definitely didn’t find out about them from those magazines lol. Just MTV like probably most of us. I’m sure bands like Limp Bizkit and even Eminem were also part of those magazines to be fair

anyone who was ever on MTV/TRL at the time was included in those magazines. 

Not necessarily like blink was. Quit trying to reason, just accept it.

He was huge on TRL, regardless if you don’t remember. And if you wanna talk about same time as blink…Kid Rock was all over TRL same time as blink. Was he all teeny bopping in the magazines? Just accept it man, denial is just a River in Africa.

But was he on all the covers tho? I don’t care, it’s a simple principal. Some people can admit the truth and others can’t. You’re the latter. It’s ok.

Liar. Travis would make a great Joe C.

For some reason I always remember back in the day in an interview , and Travis was asked about new music that he liked or whatever. He said he thought Slipknot was alright but that he didn’t like Kid Rock. Then I remember Kid Rock saying in an interview after the 2000 VMAs what acts he liked and blink was one of the bands he shouted out. Also on a podcast about a year ago Rick Devoe said somehow blink was with Pennywise, Kid Rock, and Joe C of all people in a van, and I think someone like Fletcher got em all pissed off calling him a midget lol. And that’s my daily incoherent rambling thanks for reading

Yeah Mark kind of seems like he doesn't want to do shows this year. They only have a few dates scheduled this year but I don't see any of them happening.
