Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 did another Twitter Q&A last night and even said it’d be a “fantastic” idea to do a 20th anniversary show for The Mark Tom and Travis Show.
This Blink-182 commercial for Take Off Your Pants and Jacket resurfaced on my social media feeds this morning and I couldn’t not share it.
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.”
Tom DeLonge sat down to talk with Kerrang:
“I get it – trust me, I love blink and it’s given me everything in my life,” Tom says. “And, you know, I plan on doing it in the future. But right now there’s just no way – I have way too much going on because Angels & Airwaves is a part of To The Stars, and that’s why it works.”
Blink-182 is currently number two in the in-museum “vote your choice” fan vote for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:
Since the start of the year, Blink-182 has led the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s in-museum “Voice Your Choice” fan vote. But a new contender has emerged.
Motley Crue overtook first place in the kiosk-driven voting this weekend. The popular ‘80s metal band has been surging since the release of “The Dirt” on Netflix in March.
Blink-182’s new single “Blame It on My Youth” is up on Apple Music, Spotify, and YouTube. There’s also a lyric video.
I’ll have more thoughts on the song throughout the day, but first impressions are it’s good, I like that they’re mixing it up, and I’m pretty sure they worked with Tim Pagnotta and Sam Hollander on this one and it’s a great combo.
Blink-182 will release their new album’s debut single, titled “Blame it On My Youth,” tomorrow.

Mark Hoppus talked with NME about the Fyre Festival disaster:
“It was pretty shocking,” Hoppus told NME of his first viewing of the documentary. “It was shocking but not entirely surprising. We had indications kind of early on that there were problems. Our production crew was having problems getting even the most basic of answers as to staging, power and things that you would normally have well in advance of the show. That being said, us and our crew have always prided ourselves on being able to put on a good show.
“If you give us electricity and a stage then we will do our best to put on a great show. We continued in good faith, the show got closer and closer. Travis [Barker, drums] doesn’t fly so he was going to have to get on a boat for several days to get there then our production crew just said, ‘I don’t think that this is going to happen, I think we should pull out now’. That’s when we issued our statement.”
