The blink 182 general discussion topic

I like stand up and comedy movies but SNL or sketch comedy as a whole has never appealed to me, including MadTV. I can't remember the last time I actually saw an episode at airing time ... probably mid-90s. That isn't a diss, it's just not for me. I'm sure it's fine if you're into that sort of thing.

just was reading the new book by dave grohl, the storyteller, which is entertaining. i didn't know this until now, but apparently both foo fighters and blink share the same tour manager, gus brandt. i'd been reading this whole book wondering why he kept referring to a "gus" while on tour, then it hit me haha. don't know why that surprised me, but i found it interesting nonetheless.

blink gets exactly one mention, in the context of performing a big day out 00:

Other than Blink-182, we were without a doubt the nerdiest, goofiest, most annoying band on the bill. I mean, there were real heavyweights on this one—Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, Primal Scream, just to name a few—and I can safely say that none of those dudes would ever be caught dead riding around on those dork-mobiles in broad daylight.

I always forget about this clip. Still makes me laugh.

“What the fuck mum? We said no!”

Toms acting is actually the worst which always makes me laugh.

I saw an interview with Chris Shiflett like 10 years ago where he was showing around a studio and he said "this the room where I auditioned for Foo Fighters but it's also known for being the room where blink-182 decided to break up in 2005" so random haha

I follow SNL similarly to how I follow Blink, almost like a sports team that I always root for even when they're down, and yeah that episode was an embarrassment. Never seen an entire episode just pander to someone like that.

Just caught up and watched last weeks episode. I don’t see how they pandered or did anything different than with any other host. Seemed like a typical/mediocre SNL episode to me.

The Travis/MGK bit was pretty funny but the skit as a whole sucked. I’ll take the 2021 blink SNL reference either way though lol.

Did they really ever decide that in a room? I thought Tom just stopped talking to them.

I kinda remember that they actually spent a few hours arguing in a room once and after that Tom stopped talking to them. I always thought it was a backstage, but I'm sure Chris Shiflett knows more about their break up because blink and FF have the same manager. If he said that it happened in that studio, I think he probably heard it from the manager.

For those that want to see. Good to know the world sees his behaviour as cringe as we do haha

MGK is literally the guy who said “I am weed” and made Megan Fox think "wow this is HOT, let's date". Now there's a big chance Travis and KK are a little bit better than that.

Yeah, I think they were getting ready for the tsunami benefit show.

Edit: the tweet was deleted, but here's a screenshot...

On the one hand, I kind of agree with her, on the other hand it’s dumb to say outloud and considering her history of beefing with musicians she really should learn to just back off. Skiba already hates her n all lol
