Blink-182: Tales from Beneath Your Mom by Mark HoppusTheyre young. Theyre sexually active. And they play their own instruments.In a time when overproduced boy bands and teen sensations are saturating the music market, the boys of blink-182 are a breath of fresh air -- proving that sugarcoated acts arent the only thing that can get nominated for MTVs Video of the Year.
Blink-182 Tales from Beneath Your Mom is chock full of the outrageous bands behind-the-scenes antics, juvenile sense of humor, and never-before-published photos. Bandmates Mark Hoppus, Tom Delonge, and Travis Barker join Marks sister, Anne, in this exciting tell-all book about life on the road and backstage.
From their early days jamming in Toms garage, to dominating MTVs TRL, to going multiplatinum with their album Enema of the State and being voted The Sexiest Rock Band by Teen People, fans can at last get an inside look at the video-streaking, toilet-joke-living, self-styled punk/pop band that has all the kids asking, Whats My Age Again?

Reading 2014: The Ultimate Review
The excitement for the band's performance was there from the crowd, but not, it would appear from the band themselves. Four years is a long time in the music world. Albums can be conceived, created and released, continents can be toured, and countless festivals can be rocked. Ever since their hiatus between , Blink seem to have lacked any sort of urgency to release new material. And with solo and side projects offering an almost constant distraction from the main project, the question has to be asked: has the fire finally gone out for the Peter Pans of pop-punk? When Blink headlined the Main Stage at Reading Festival in , they were reportedly asked by organiser Melvin Benn to come back again 'within five years' as soon as they had stepped off stage.
Thursday 26 September Music festivals feed. By Patrick Smith. There was an air of nostalgia on the final day of Reading Festival, with its line-up comprising veteran pop-punks Blink , mid-Noughties indie boppers The Kooks and soul revisionists Jungle. Headliners Blink turned 22 this year, and a career-spanning set featured nods to their early rough-and-ready days. Though the melodies were as direct as ever, the band were let down by a tinny sound, particularly on opener Feeling This from their eponymous album. At their best on record, and with virtuoso drummer Travis Barker orchestrating their muscular drive, the band sound like a classic power-pop trio, sped up double-time.

I fucking hate Blink Michael McIntyre is big but at an artistic level he is colossally unimportant and colossally unfunny — just like Blink The announcement that the idiotic three-piece will headlining next years Reading and Leeds Festivals has once again brought loads of people out of the woodwork who think that three men in their late 30s Mark Hoppus is 41! You remember NOFX, right — the politically aware, dryly satirical, take-a-pop-at-the-social-elite skatepunks who shit incredible tunes for breakfast? Well, they got superseded by the American Pie soundtrack.
