    That seemed to take a while...

    Man this song woulda done so well if it had been pushed through the Summer with a well done video to go with it.

    Blink's new album isn't really Autumny.

    I'm not sure why it took them this long to release a 2nd single. Bored To Death was released in April...

    Yeah this seems like a really poor time to release it to radio. I would have thought a summer release right in the middle of their tour would have been better but hey, what do we know?

    This song will do super well no matter what. It's very catchy

    Should've been "Sober".

    This song is really catchy too though.

    Agreed. Though maybe Sober will be the third single.

    I would've went with Los Angeles as the 2nd single in August. That would've been a sports anthem with the Rams coming back.

    That's a good point—how is this not the theme song for the Rams? Good opportunity for the band to make a million or so.

    Someone dropped the ball on that one. I could've seen that song being the same as Fall Out Boy's My Songs as the most annoying sports song of the summer/fall.

    Yeah, even though it's my least favorite song on the album, "Los Angeles" in the late summer/fall then "Sober" release come winter to promote the deluxe edition re-release of the album would have been my pitch. Songs sound more in line with "Bored to Death" IMO.

    Superb choice for the next single. Interested to see the music video.

    There are no answers. Only choices.

    I agree with others in that the release of "She's Out Of Her Mind" seems out of place for this time of the year. Los Angeles would have been a decent single (hopefully, it still will be).

    On a personal note, I would love to see them release "The Only Thing That Matters" as a single.

    Song is great, will probably get a good amount of radio play. Chorus is huge.

    Loving this Blink comeback.

    And the Dodgers playoff run! Not that they could have predicted that.
    Also, they need to save sober for the summer. That has huge crossover potential.

    Oh man, so many better options. Like the song, but they have about ten choices that would be better.

    Subgenres Should Die

    And again, song I don't really care for. Lyrics are ace. Matt Skiba is my god, but I'm enjoying the new album by The Sums(anyone get that? lol), and shockingly Green Day much more. I didn't think they had RR in them anymore.

    We know it from the silence

    This one is actually one of my favorites off the album, I agree with this decision

    Subgenres Should Die

    Blink-182 is the definitive "weak singles, kickass rest of the album" band. Well, at least since Enema. Best song on there was Going Away to College, best on TOYPAJ was "Give Me One Good Reason", best on S/T was "Stockholm Syndrome" the dueling vocals are some of Blink's best, and on Neighbourhoods it was "Kaleidoscope" or "Natives". Still processing the new album, but I always go back "Los Angeles".

    I actually have nothing to complain about. The song is catchy as fuck and I enjoy it. Should do well regardless of season.

    It's all rock & roll.

    Great choice for a single, though there are a lot of great contenders on the album. Kind of wish they released it earlier, though. Not because of the season, but it felt like Bored to Death was the only single for a while there.

    I didn't love this album. But damn, if I didn't love those melodies on this song:
    "She's a-a-a-antisocial, a-a-a-antisocial, and-and-and she's an angel, yeah!"
