    Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 talked with Pedestrian.tv about the possibility of an Enema of the State 20 year anniversary celebration.


    We have talked about doing Enema Of The State in its entirety as a celebration of the 20th anniversary of that record coming out.

    After hearing that song yesterday, some Enema would do them some good.

    Only Enema songs Matt hasn't played are Anthem and Aliens Exist. Fine with me.

    What a weird alternate universe to live in to think that Mark is hurting blink and Tom wasn't lol

    You mean the nail that included them having a resurgence, their first #1 certified gold hit and #1 charting album in a long time, sold out arena tours, etc?

    Yeah such a terrible nail.

    Just because they're "popular" again doesn't mean its quality. Hopefully the new album is really good and I'll eat my words, but I have a feeling there will be diminishing returns until Mark hangs it up or brings back Tom out of desperation...

    Millions of people love Blink-182, today, and their recent album. Millions of people get happiness out of their music for the first time in a long time. The California success speaks to that.

    People conflate "not for me" with "no one should/does like this."

    The idea that the band is "dead" is just absurd to posit given these facts.

    I absolutely think the band should continue. but i would want to see them to do that album in full if Tom was coming back.

    matt sounds better singing those songs than Tom has in over a decade

    Anyone who wants Tom back doesn't know what Tom has sounded like vocally for over a decade. Admittedly Matt's not amazing from what I've heard of them live, but he's leagues ahead of where Tom is today and is certainly serviceable which is far more than anyone could say for Tom.

    Might be Spider-Man...

    He really does though....and it's always been an odd wtf is he doing scenario. We all know Toms never been the best singer, especially in a live setting, and punk isn't about being the best, it's about emotion. His insistence at the AVA vocal wailing technique just doesn't translate to blink.

    ha this was my second thought

    Weird without Tom but weird with Tom's "new" singing voice as well

    I don’t think anyone will argue that Matt isn’t a better singer but the thing I loved about blink was the contrast between Marks voice and Toms voice. That’s gone now.

    Now it’s two dudes that can’t sing that well who sound similar singing shitty lyrics.

    So the classic blink formula they just sound slightly more similar? Not seeing the issue really.

    I liked Blink with Tom, I just really don't get some of these complaints to be honest.
