* {{Adorkable}}: Not the band members themselves, but "First Date" is pretty much the most awkwardly adorable thing ever.

Blink 182, also known to everyone else as Blink-182 or blink-182 if you want to be exact, is a three-piece pop-punk band from Poway, California. The band was formed in 1992 by Tom [=DeLonge=] (vocals/guitar), Mark Hoppus (vocals/bass) and Scott Raynor (drums). Raynor left the band in 1998, to be replaced by the semi-legendary Travis Barker (the guy with the tattoos who survived that plane crash). [=DeLonge=] left the group early in 2005, putting the band on hiatus until 2009, when they got back together "for real", according to them (due to Travis surviving said plane crash). They celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2012, released their latest EP, Dogs Eating Dogs in December of that year, and are set to work on a new album in 2013. [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly Their current sound]] is a mixture of the traditional blink sound and various elements of the groups they formed during their hiatus.

Recently Tom [=DeLonge=] was "confirmed" by his bandmates that he has left the group [[HereWeGoAgain again, citing reasons to focus on other projects]]. The confirmation and the aftermath of it was...messy. As of July however and [[RunningGag months of shoving in and promoting him]], Mark and Travis announced that Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio would be their new vocalist. Their sound now is influenced by more modern pop punk as well as taking cues from both AlkalineTrio and older Blink.

** Heck, they even influenced '''Music/OneDirection'''. Their first video for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJO3ROT-A4E&list=UUbW18JZRgko_mOGm5er8Yzg "What Makes You Beautiful"]] was filmed at Santa Monica Beach, along with 1D having similar outfits and the video being filmed with the same angles, but the content [[{{Reconstruction}} wasn't]] PlayedForLaughs. This lead to jokes that blink had ''retroactively'' parodied them, a decade before 1D came into existance. Later on, their video for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_v9MY_FMcw "Best Song Ever"]] would evoke classic blink videos by taking the piss out of 90s boy band cliches, taking even more of the piss out of themselves, introducing characters that wouldn't feel out of place in the "First Date" video, and [[http://assets7.gcstatic.com/u/apps/asset_manager/uploaded/2013/29/one-direction-best-song-ever-16-1374574802-custom-0.png Zayn Malik]] beating [[http://s13.postimg.org/5d1jibpxz/blink_182_All_The_Small_Things_mp4_snapshot_01.png Tom]] in the [[{{Crossdresser}} crossdressing]] department. Louis Tomlinson has even covered "First Date" live, which Mark was actually curious about.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Started to head this way with the self-titled album and dove right in after they reunited with ''Neighborhoods'' as they had gone through a significant amount of turmoil throughout the hiatus, especially with the death of their long time producer Jerry Finn and the near death of Travis.

* MushroomSamba: "Neighborhoods" has the song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w18wV72OgwE Fighting the Gravity]], a little ditty Mark wrote about what he was going through when he was accidentally slipped LSD in a drink. Spoilers: It wasn't a fun time. Even for "Neighborhoods", it was A exceedingly different sounding track.

** Tom's "departure" is seen as this. Mark and Travis state they got an email from Tom's manager, confirming that he had "exit the band" and he had "not taken interest in blink anymore" (which is considered by ''a majority of fans'' false due to Tom's energetic attitude during 2013-2014, especially at the Readings Festival). The two broke the news to the media, but then Tom posted on his instagram that he had ''not'' left the band. ''But then'' Mark and Travis went to Rolling Stones and confirmed that Tom was in fact out. The entire spectacle was a huge ''public break up'' which left fans devastated, but no one really knows what happened (or Tom's position due to the ambiguity of it, although the majority of the media thinks Tom has 'left the band for good'). Nobody really knows.

** "I Miss You," which is a jazz song performed entirely on acoustic instruments. Mark even plays a double bass.

* RepeatAfterMe: In their live album ''The Mark, Tom, and Travis Show (The Enema Strikes Back!)'', Tom addresses the audience: "I want all of you to say FUCK with me!" On the count of three, the audience yells out-- you guessed it-- "Fuck with me!" Mark asks Tom why he would want them to say that. [[DontExplainTheJoke They explain that Tom wanted them to say fuck, but he wanted them to say it with him]]. They try it a second time, and get it right.
