    Blink 18-poo-doo-magoo bring up the bile from the back of my neck, the ***in suck horse cock and should be killed and all of their 'work' destroyed. they suck pure and simple.
    Jacharias P, if they suck so bad, why do you read their news stories? Maybe if they suck so much you should spend the time you do dissing them writing your own songs so you can put some better music out there? Oh, wait, that probably won't happen...people who vent their spleen for no reason on bands they say they don't care about usually don't get too far...they're too busy informing the world of their ridiculous opinions that no one really wants to hear.
    I can't believe they are relaseing "Down" There are shit loads of better songs on the CD! Easy Target, Obvious,Violence.... Arg h well Blink Rule, Come back to the UK!
    blink are badass, and oh yeah obvious should be the next single, not down
    wooooo...i'm not much of a fan of blink-182 anymore, but i'm definitely gonna go when they come! No one ever comes to Canberra- we always get bypassed from Sydney to's about time someone came.
