    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.

    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.

    Give what you can.

    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.

  21. 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.
