Blink 182 Overview: Blink 182 is an alternative rock band. They frequently address emotions in their music, but in a depressing way. They use deep lyrics to appeal to a young, struggling audience. They redefined music, by adding elements of pop and elements of rock together.
The New York Times
said that they, "[took] punk's already playful core and [gave] it a shiny, accessible polish."
They started out as any ordinary "garage band" in 1992, just playing to get away from reality. The band started out their career just as 'Blink,' Tom DeLonge had picked the name, and it was pretty random, they had used a few, such as Duck Tape and Figure 8, but none had really stuck. However that name was also short lived because there is an irish band also called 'Blink' and they were forced to change their name to avoid legal action. They added the '182' for no reason, just to get out of the copyright infringement.
Blink-182 was a very influential band, in 2011, The New York Times stated that "no punk band of the 1990s has been more influential than Blink-182." The band did have their ups and downs, and in 2005 they even split up for a few years (2005-2008). But then in 2008, Barker and Goldstein were involved in a plane crash seen on tv by DeLonge which made him realize he wanted to sing with the band again. This leads to their reunion in 2009 and release of their new album entitled "Neighborhoods," the new beginning for the band as a whole. They became the most influential band of all time!
