I don't really understand why people hate blink-182 so much. This is the band that quotes George Carlin, runs around on stage naked and has lines like "It would be nice to have a blow from your mom." Sounds way more entertaining to me than Coldplay or anything Thom Yorke ever did.

It sounds like the stuff 13 year olds listen to when they're trying to be cool edgy and rebellious. It's a "no thanks" from me. I'll shut up about it though.

I like Coldplay, Thom Yorke, AND Blink 182. I like mixing it up

I don't understand why people love Blink-182 so much. They sound like a half-assed version of NOFX and considering that NOFX themselves are pretty half-assed sounding, I guess that makes Blink-182 only about a quarter assed. Where's the fun in 1/4 of an ass?

good point

I don't love them that much, but I was exposed to their music when I haven't heard many other rock-in-general bands before. It's as easy as that, I listened to dance crap before and then you hear Blink, RHCP, Korn, the Offspring and Marilyn Manson on MTV/the radio, you start liking that kind of music and listen to all their records. I would have needed an older brother or friend to show me the "real" rock,punk,metal stuff.
Now, having listend to those bands several years in school and after, you can start to acknowledge that there is "better" music, broaden your horizon, diggin deep into music history. But it doesn't erase the period of hundrets of days listening to Blink. You still have your favorite songs.
So now I'm also excited about what they'll come up with. Though actually, I'm not even that excited. But as soon as the album is out I will get it.

And of course, it all started by watching MTV and those bands -as someone already argued- doing catchy music with sometimes even great riffs. Maybe not original or pure, but my rock-virgin-mind fell for it.
+ I like the contrast of the two different voices of Blink 182

You could record repetitive flushing noises and the worst seventies punk song through a tin can while a baby wails and still come out with something more enjoyable than Fat Mike's singing.

Right. And Blink-182 sound half as good as that.
