Mark Hoppus on New Blink-182 Podcast

Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 is on the latest episode of the Blink-155 podcast. He shows up around the two hour and thirty minute mark and talks about fan reaction to the band’s new single:

I remember when we first put out “Feeling This,” and people were like, ‘Oh my gosh what is this? It has weird drums in the beginning and it has screaming. And Mark is screaming ‘I’m feeling this,’ and does Mark think he’s rapping in the bridge?’ There was all of this negative feedback on “Feeling This” and it’s, I think, one of our best songs.

He then goes on to say the new album is being mixed right now but doesn’t have a title, they think they’re doing writing for it, they tried really hard not to write California again, and the album will have “really aggressive stuff […], stuff that’s probably even poppier than ‘Blame It on My Youth,’ and weird stuff.”
