These guys get bashed on here a lot. I think it's because most (all?) of their songs are simplistic and because they're "pop punk". Who gives a shit? Just because it's poppy and catchy doesn't mean it's bad. Some of the melodeath shit out there Children of Bodom is catchier and poppier than Blink in my view.

Seriously, almost every album of theirs, apart from the debut which I wasn't really into is just really good songwriting. Simple, yes. But still catchy as hell and with really solid memorable melodies.

Plus a lot of their lyrics are hilarious, which is a nice bonus. You know what... anyone can play really technical shit if they practice guitar 8 hours a day, but the fact is a lot of these tech death bands out there that some obsess over (and believe me, I listen to plenty of metal) can't write anywhere near what this teen pop punk band can. And it's not cause it's "above me" or some other pretentious bs. I listen to Gorguts, which is some of the weirdest shit known to man.

I guess what I'm trying to say is... Blink is the shit. There's billions of imitators out there... All American Rejects comes to mind as one particularly forgettable band, but they all suck and deserve the hate. But Blink? No. Sorry, they're really kickass songwriters, even if Tom's voice does suck live.

If you're talking about Blink 182, you are oh so wrong. I dare you to go to /b/ and say they are awesome or whatever you think they are.

The more you complain about a band/artist being flamed, the more they get flamed. If you like Blink, then that's cool. It shows massive insecurity about your taste in music when you feel the need to defend a band that you like just out of the blue.
