Blink-182 - The Early Days

The boys of Blink-182 are made up of San Diego natives Tom DeLonge (guitar/vocals), Mark Hoppus (bass/vocals) and Travis Barker (drums.) Blink-182's original line-up had Scott Raynor on drums. The band started out as a mariachi band playing at weddings and birthdays and called themselves El Cuatro and the Cajones. That was short lived. Blink-182 lost the ponchos, plugged in their amps and have been rockin' ever since.

Blink-182 Grows Up

Blink-182 released their first full album, Cheshire Cat in 1995 on Grilled Cheese Music. In '96 MCA Records snagged Blink-182 and they released their second album Dude Ranch in '97. By the end of 1998 Blink-182 had been tagged as one of the most popular pop-punk bands of the year. Dude Ranch was a big success, which had a lot to do with the popular single Dammit (Growing Up.) Teens caught the Blink bug when Enema Of The State hit record shelves in 1999 and their popularity exploded. It was a sad day for girls everywhere when, in May 2001, Blink-182 hottie Tom DeLonge got hitched to his long-time sweetheart Jennifer Jenkins. The following month the band released Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. The first single The Rock Show is a big hit and the video. Blink-182's self-titled album is due out in November of 2003.

I think this is great because its being more realistic. Times have changed and it's time to accept changes.
