Biography

San Diego, United States (1992 – 2005, 2009 – present)

Blink-182 is an American band formed in Poway, a suburb of San Diego, California in 1992. The trio consists of bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus, guitarist and vocalist Tom DeLonge, and drummer Travis Barker. The band is considered a key group in the development of pop punk music; their combination of pop melodies with fast-paced punk rock featured a more radio-friendly accessibility than prior bands. The group, with original drummer Scott Raynor, emerged from the Southern California punk scene of the early 1990s and first gained notoriety for high-energy live shows and irreverent lyrical toilet humor.

DeLonge left the group in 2005, sending the band into what was termed an “indefinite hiatus.” Following the dissolution of the band, Hoppus formed +44 together with Barker, while DeLonge put together his own outfit, Angels & Airwaves. Following the death of long-time producer and friend Jerry Finn, and Barker’s near fatal plane crash, the trio reunited in 2009 and their sixth studio album, Neighborhoods, was released in 2011.

Early years (1992-1998)

In May 1993, Blink recorded their first demo tape, entitled “Flyswatter”, in drummer Scott Raynor’s bedroom. A 4-track was used to record the material. According to Hoppus, only around fifty copies of the demo were produced to give to their family and friends. Before the end of the year, the band released another two demos, one commonly known as Demo #2 while the other was entitled Buddha. Of this last record around 1,000 copies were produced by Filter Records, an independent record company headed by Hoppus’s boss.

    Sometimes I sit at home and wonder if she's sitting at home thinking of me, and wondering if I'm sitting at home thinking about her, or am I just wasting my time?

    Сначала бы всё творчество, биографию изучили, а потом уже утверждали мол "говно!" и т.д. Не нравится, промолчите, быдло останется быдлом и от мнения тупого школьника, слушающего АК-47 и Гуфа тут всем ни горячо, ни холодно, просто закройте варежку. ВСЕМ МИР! PUNK`S NOT DEAD!
