Blink-182 Isn't the Only 1999 Band That's Making New Music & Here's the Proof
According to Tom DeLonge's Instagram and Twitter, apparently the memories of teens running amuck, neck tattoos, spiked hair, and head-banging '90s music were too much for his band to ignore. The mega-popular punk band Blink-182 is ready to make another album and continue making mom's complain that their kids are scoundrels. Sometimes the temptation is just too damn sweet.
Blink-182's yet-to-be-titled album will be the seventh in its repertoire, and, if we're being serious, will hopefully be as iconic as 1999's Enema of the State, you know, the album that included the only three songs you knew the lyrics to: "What's My Age Again?", "All the Small Things," and " Adam's Song." (If you knew more than those three, then we're pretty sure you can classify yourself as an actual fan of theirs and not someone who ironically-not-ironically screams "Ugh, I love this song" at house parties.)
And, honestly, if the band isn't aiming to revamp their late '90s/early 2000s image, then what's the point even? All we can say is that DeLonge, Travis Barker, and Mark Hoppus better have some pretty amazing ideas if they want to one-up lyrics like "We started making out, and she took off my pants/But then I turned on the TV" and "And that's about the time that bitch hung up on me/Nobody likes you when you're 23." Amiright?
But, if their next album doesn't jump to the top of the charts like it did 15-ish years ago, then, at the very least, they can add themselves to the list of early '90s/late 2000 bands that are currently working on new music or have released an album in the last year.
Most of the band might be gone now, but Mark McGrath was really the band anyways, right?
The band is currently working on Stampede of Disco Elephants (although it will never beat their album titled Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water).
Not only did they release a compilation album in 2013, but they're set to release a brand new album this year.
Still not over the fact that "Semi-Charmed Life" is about meth.
Some people say I look like me dad.
But we all know which band we actually want to make a comeback, right?
This means they'll also make another TV show, right?
