Blink- 182

Blink-182 was an American trio that played pop punk and punk rock music.

The band originally formed in 1992 in Poway,Calefornia by Adam Johnson(singingvocals) and Tom DeLonge(guitar) and Mark Hoppus (vocals and Bass), who quickly recruited Scott Raynor (drums).

Originally, the band's official name was "Blink". Mark founded the "182" when one day reading the doctors papers on his fridge. The "182" came from his weight that was reported on the paper offcially renaming the band Blink-182.

In 1998, midway through a U.S. tour, Raynor and Johnson announced that they were leaving the band, due to undisclosed reasons. Drummer Travis Baker, who was touring with The Aquabats on the same bill as Blink-182, joined the band and replaced Raynor permanently.

DeLonge quickly took over the vocal position left free by Johnson but later left the group in early 2005, with the band portraying it as an "indefinite hiatus". DeLonge went on to play alternative rock in a band called Angels & Airwaves, while Hoppus and Barker continued in a similar genre with their band +44.

Blink-182 were known for their catchy, simple melodies, teen angst and lyrical toilet humor. They have sold almost 22 million records worldwide. The band was primarily known for popular hits such as "All The Small Things", "Adam´s Song", "What´s My age again", "First date", "The Rock Show", "Dammit", "Feeling This", "I miss you" and "Stay together for the kids".
