Did anyone manage to get any of the limited edition TOYPAJ merch managed to get the faded t shirt in a small hoping theyd run big but it's way too small. Looking for a medium or large if any one wants to swap/sell.

Not even crediting the uploader of this gem (who is Jim McLain) and Blink 182 Online (for reference this footage was posted early June on the comprehensive and timeline thread) once again ...

Stop acting like you found the rad and cool discoveries merci beaucoup

Also This is the earliest known performance of Mutt, and quite possibly its first performance ever.

@daveyjones This is definitely not true as Davey confirmed and saw that song performed the previous month in February on the San Diego date so that's false information. Get your facts right

so, i got to see green day live for the first time last night and was honestly blown away. extremely tight as a band, high-energy, old-school rock showmanship/crowd work, fans coming up onstage… it was just a great show. it got me thinking about how much blink truly sucks live,  and why that is. and i guess the difference is that neither mark or tom have a big interest in classic rock showmanship, and that’s okay. tom also clearly has little interest in music anymore, whereas the whole green day entourage seems like it’s the first gig they’ve ever played. that enthusiasm really translates well to a big crowd given that these bands will never play smaller rooms again, and it’s something blink sorely lacks. apples to oranges i guess, but green day live was extremely fun in a way blink has never been for me

Green Day is just a much better band, as far as musicianship goes. I love blink a billion times more, but it’s the truth. Without the studio magic Mark and Tom would have never sounded good. They were capable of being fairly good live, but that was during a time when they were still excited about their careers and were trying. That didn’t last very long.

Listening to NINE for the first time in a while (at 5 in the morning lol I need to sleep) and honestly this album kicks ass. I mean I always liked it, but going back to it it's still just as great now that recency bias is no longer in effect. The back half is especially great.

Can anyone record this for those of us without Apple Music? This is a historic moment in Blink history that needs to be documented and shared with the world (only barely hyperbole).

I never watched Mark's TV show because I didn't have the Fuse channel, and I can't listen to his radio show because I'm not gonna subscribe to Apple Music. I miss the good ol' himynameismark podcast days.

Hopefully someone records this!

Does literally anyone here have Apple Music? I think I only know one person in my life who uses it over Spotify.
