    If this is gonna be another "R blink182 punk or not" discussions I want no part of it.
  3. This has been done before way too many times. Some people think they're talentless idiots, some people think they make catchy tunes that are fun to listen to. No-one can agree on whether or not they are punk, so nearly all threads on them turn into flame wars before being closed by angry mods. I can see this one going the same way.

    For the record, I don't really like them, its just not my kind of music.

    Here are my opinions on Blink-182:

    -They arent punk
    -They arent sellouts
    -Their new music sucks ("Enema" and "Jacket")
    -Mark is a decent bass player, his style is perfect for Blink-182. Playing more would only hurt them.
    -I like Blink-182, they are cool guys. But again, theyre not punkers or punk rockers.

    I don't particularly like them, but if millions enjoy their music, then that should be good enough.

    I've put off posting here for a while now. I don't care for Blink-182. I'm just not into them. I also don't care for Mark's bass lines either, but they are perfect for that type of music(what ever it is). If someone likes them, ok. If not, ok.

    This has been done to death. If you don't believe me, do a search. I am closing this one down.
