** Their self-titled album, that came before the hiatus, was also noticeably different from the rest of the blink-182 catalogue, with a more somber and introspective tone, almost to the point of being a TropeCodifier of {{Emo}} as we know it.

The album itself is somewhat a SpiritualSuccessor of Tom's Box Car Racer project and clearly went on to influence Angels and Airwaves.

Added DiffLines:

* VocalEvolution: Tom is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fqUL6N-XTA frequently noted for this]], as his voice varies from high-pitched and nasal to more mellow depending on the era of the band. Even more so when considering his other projects, where he sounds almost completely different.

* {{Manchild}}: "What's My Age Again?" is about a 23-year old who is about to get laid, but he gets distracted by the TV, so the girl leaves, and he prank calls her mother in retaliation.

As of 2015 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.
Blink-182 are also known for their gross-out sense of humour, which they use for stage banter, and occasionally gets used for songs.

** The Dogs Eating Dogs EP goes like this: Neighborhoods styled song, oldschoolish blink song, (practically) an AVA song about the ZombieApocalypse, [[OutOfGenreExperience a folk song]], and another Neighborhoods song with [[AWildRapperAppears rap guest vocals]] at the end. People who weren't pleased with the direction blink has been going still aren't pleased now, but otherwise, the reception has been refreshingly positive.

* TakeThat: [[WordOfGod According to Tom and Mark, "Man Overboard" isn't about Scott Raynor]], the band's original drummer who left the band under mysterious circumstances and deny that the song is a mean-spirited attack against Scott (the song is about an unnamed drunken friend who Mark is glad is not around anymore and one of the rumors about why Scott Raynor left the band was that he had a drunken problem that caused Mark and Tom to fire him over). But the band won't say who the song is about and moreso, they had refused to even play it live up until their 2011 shows due to people repeatedly asking whether it was about Raynor.

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.

** They also seem to enjoy yelling things of varying obscenity, like "Fuck [[TheOprahWinfreyShow Oprah]]!" and "Orgasm!", right before starting a song live. About half of ''The Enema Strikes Back! The Mark, Tom & Travis Show'' is stage banter between songs, rife with them. The [=iTunes=] version even has an expanded tracklist with one long hidden track consisting of ''nothing'' but banter.
