The text below applies to [4] the band from Dublin, Ireland.

Blink were noted for their mixture of humour and melancholy. They released three albums: A Map Of the Universe by Blink (1994), The End Is High (1998) and Deep Inside The Sound Of Sadness (2004). A Map of the Universe by Blink was a top ten album in their native Ireland. The End is High was a Billboard magazine album of the week and Deep inside the Sound of Sadness was nominated as Best Irish Album of the Year in the 2005 Meteor Music Awards.

The band Blink-182 originally called themselves Blink but changed their name after a threat of legal action - a fact they were demonstrably unhappy about at the time, referring to the original Blink as a ‘shitty Dublin pop band’

Formed in the mid 1990s by Dermot Lambert, Robbie Sexton, Brian McLoughlin and Barry Campbell, Blink’s inclusion on a CD for a trade festival in New York sparked a review, leading to an A&R storm as international music executives chased the dreams and dollars of ‘the next U2’, which ended with the band signing with EMI for their debut release.
