Added DiffLines:

** ''California'' seems to be equally as divisive for the fans as Neighborhoods was, with many seeing it as boring with overwrought production and trying too hard to appeal to 90s nostalgia songwise.

Added DiffLines:

** ''California'' seems to be mixed between those who see it as a return to form and those who see it as a boring, irritating retread.

* AwesomeMusic: For a pop punk band, they seem to hold a lot of regard for people, becoming less of the generic pop music and making music for everyone. "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket", "Enema of the State" and ''especially'' [[GrowingTheBeard the untitled/self titled album]] showcases the band's career as a whole.

* BaseBreaker: '''Tom'''.

to:

* BaseBreaker: '''Tom'''. Either he's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold with a slew of projects under his belt that didn't help blink's future... or he suffers from SmallNameBigEgo. Most fans TakeTheThirdOption and seem to see him as a JerkWithAHeartOfGold ''suffering'' from SmallNameBigEgo. His CreatorBreakdown behavior following his removal/departure from blink doesn't help matters either.



** Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio being the replacement for Tom, at least for current shows. Some fans ''really'' see him as a good part, but there's a minority who still feel he can't replace Tom. ''It gets'' '''[[FanDumb very]]'' '''''[[HateDom very]]''''' messy.

* EpilepticTrees:'''Is Tom Out of Blink'''/'''What Will Happen to Blink?'''. Basically over the recent events with whether or not blink-182 is done for following arguments between the three when Mark and Travis basically announced 'Tom is out of the band' despite the fact Tom stated he is not out of the band and did not quit as they said. This resulted with PoorCommunicationKills and eye rolls by nearly '''everyone''' by what's happening..

This resulted with PoorCommunicationKills and eye rolls by nearly '''everyone''' by what's happening..'''everyone'''. While Matt is now a full member of the band, Tom keeps insisting he's still a part of the band, but it's known if he's speaking the truth.



* GrowingTheBeard: Most people would think they began to do this around ''Enema of the State'', as when they went on, the band became less about making dick jokes and toilet humor and more serious topics such as suicide ("Adam's Song" off of ''Enema of the State'') and broken homes ("Stay Together for the Kids" off of ''Take Off Your Pants and Jacket''). The self titled/untitled album on the other hand, showcases the band's maturity in music, being a complete devoid album of comedic songs and more about broken relationships, growth in families, and more darker types of feelings. Tom's work on Box Car Racer and Travis's working on Transplants helped matters as well.



** Tom again veered into Jerkass Woobie territory when he was, ''in a sense'', kicked out of the band, due to his workaholic tendencies (with focusing heavily on AVA and such) keeping the band from making an album. In his departure letter (made ''after'' he was kicked out), Tom confirmed that Mark and Travis (mainly their lawyers) were going to force him to [[ExecutiveMeddling sign a contract that could have hurt the entire projects Tom had planned beforehand]], and confirmed that he wasn't happy doing with blink because of his changing style. Basically, [[TearJerker Tom didn't want to leave blink despite feeling like he didn't have it in him anymore but still went through it because he loved being with his two friends]]. And suffice to say, [[TookALevelInJerkAss Travis and Mark don't seem such like saints after this...]]

** It sort of becomes a mix of subverted to something the band had to do: Travis and Mark clarified in interviews Tom was holding the band back, which could make sense since Tom was focusing on his own stuff with AVA/His "To the Stars" projects and the range of PoorCommunicationKills didn't help matters either. However since the announcement of ''California'', Mark and Travis seem to be on speaking terms with Tom and Tom has wished his bandmates the best of luck.

*** A perfect example of this are the "WHO THE FUCK IS MATT SKIBA" shirt, due to Mark's podcast interview with Matt. '''Majority''' of people find this a stupid joke and see it more as a way to mock Tom and arguably those who don't agree with the new change.

* FridgeBrilliance: "Adam's Song" contains a brief reference to {{Music/Nirvana}}'s "Come As You Are". I didn't think much about it until I realized that the song was about suicide which was how Music/KurtCobain died.
