    Alex Melton has done a cover of Blink-182’s “Bored to Death” where he tries to emulate what it would sound like with Tom DeLonge doing vocals as well. Gotta say, as a long impersonator of Tom voice, this is pretty damn impressive.


    I was curious to know what the new Blink-182 single would sound like if Tom was still in the band, so I recorded a version doing my best Mark and Tom impressions, and just trying to get a passable attempt at Travis’s ridiculous drum parts.

    I prefer Matts vocals then. Really cool though!

    That was very cringing to watch. Couldn't finish it.

    Overacting Tom's vocals seems like low hanging fruit at this point, and it has been for a while now.

    This video did make me wish I knew how to play guitar and bass, though.

    I do like that he actually took it seriously, and genuinely tried to emulate Tom as opposed to another joke cover. The beanie was a nice touch.

    It seemed like he was overdoing it a little bit. It sounded great besides that.

    Genuinely enjoyed the hell out of this. It was a nice balance of imitating the dude without making too much fun of him. He even strummed like Tom does where he makes the parts look a lot busier than they really are.

    Is saying "goals" still a thing? If it is, then that dude has achieved my basement goals.

    People have told me I have Tom's voice despite trying to emulate Adam Lazzara for a decade now.

    I feel like he overdoes the accent a bit, but this was actually pretty good.

    I've been wondering if Mark/Travis have seen this video by now. I'd like to think they were laughing their asses off when hearing it. Not in a malicious way or anything. It's just such a messed up parody that you can't help but laugh.
