Mutt.   Would have never thought people start voting Adams Song this early. It‘s the best song Mark has ever written IMO. Also the guitar intro is so iconic that they made a whole doubl

I've always thought GATC was one of those moments where they just hit on something that allowed them use every strength they had in this era perfectly, and would've done just as well as WMAA/ATST/Adam

Dumpweed is the best opening song on any blink album, that riff just fucking smashes it so hard.

nope! but first date ain’t bad, y’all are just following how tom feels about it

Tom feels about it? What has he said? I assume he’s embarrassed because he should be. Lame, boring single just for radio and it didn’t even do well. The video was its only saving grace. I actually went back to the TOYPAJ thread and you strongly laid out your case for why First Date is so great. It’s clear we are not fans of the same band. You love the poppy, generic and dull singles of blink and that’s your band. Blink had a lot more depth than that , and unfortunately some of you never understood or got it

brother i’ve been making my case for years that blink’s best output was their more progressive moments — songs like stockholm or feeling this or kaleidoscope. even the losers like fighting the gravity have something interesting to offer. my ideal blink would be the one that never broke up in ‘05 and continued to tread a path no one ever got to. they were on the verge of something great

my enjoyment of first date has nothing to do with this. blink excelled at this type of fun, generic, ear candy. it’s got a bomb melody, sensitive and saccharine lyrics, and a bridge that combines the best of the band in that era. like you said the music video is the funniest the band ever got.

my reply is based in my observation that first date was a beloved, classic blink hit until 2006 or so, when tom referred to it as some throwaway that “teenage girls can drive around and listen to” or whatever — which was super wrong and short-sighted. then he started outwardly mocking it in concert and seems like fans began to dislike it to. more often than not the ones that have some sort of complex about tom and used to dress like him and shit
