I think there's a rule that 50% of all new posters have to say "I like everything except country and rap" in at least one of their first 15 posts.

I personally was super stoked to hear the news. Now, I realize that Blink is not an amazing band as far as music lovers are concerned. Its just one of those bands that I fell in love with in middle school and I still love it. I really think that there is some great potential in those three guys. If you listened to their last release you will notice that it was a huge step away from their really immature lyrics from the previous albums. Also musically it was a lot more interesting and better. So, I am just really excited to see what this album will sound like.

Now, I can honestly understand why a lot of you dont like Blink. However, I dont see why some of you act like its an awful thing that they are back together. I mean you have to take it for what it is. Its pop punk and they are by far the best pop punk band out there.

@Janszoon, I'm beginning to notice. :p

About Blink, I think it's a very american genre. That kind of music was never really popular here in Norway at least. I find stuff like NoFX and punk covers of old pop songs quite embarassing ..

No, it means we have to hear how amazing blink is from our annoying friends all over again. Band of our generation, I'm told.

Absolutely nothing wrong with Blink 182. For what they are/were, which is a straight out Pop Punk band, they were pretty damn good. I'm intrigued by what the next offering will be like

I've just never been interested in it. As for country, I live in the country. It just seems so underwhelming. Oh listen to him sing about fields, I live in the middle of about 7 of them. I also hate the songs about alcohol and parties. I don't like the note range that they stick around either. For some reason there is always a note range I am hoping for before I hear the song. Some examples

Andy Blueman - Nyctalopia
Andy Blueman - Neverland
DJ Shah feat. Adrina Thorpe - Back to You (Aly & Fila Remix)
B. Fleischmann - Static Grate
Radiohead - Motion Picture Soundtrack

I can't really explain it, it just has a heartfelt sound to it. If anyone could help me out, THANK YOU! As for rap, there isn't enough expression, and if there is then it's about stuff I can't really relate to. Come to think of it, both genres have songs about very specific things. Maybe that's why I don't bother with songs that have vocals unless they're in someway cryptic.

There's actually a lot of rap with pretty abstract lyrics.
