MTV spoke with Blink-182's Mark Hoppus to get the real story about rumors that his former band may be reuniting.

He said in part:

"None of us know exactly what's going to happen. I do know that we're all very stoked to be talking again, laughing and letting the past remain in the past.

"But we're also coming together after an extremely acrimonious band breakup, a lot of anger and frustration with one another and four years of not talking.

"I think that we need to get back to a certain point as friends before we could ever take a stage together again, because that's what we always based everything on.

"If - and this is a big if Blink-182 were ever to re-form, it would have to be the most amazing, ridiculous, mind-blowing show and tour ever.

"I feel like, as bitter as our breakup was, we stepped back at the top of our game, and we'd have to come back even stronger and better than before."

Thanks for the report to Antimusic.com.

    wow. wishing death on someone for being an overrated drummer? this is low, even for an online community. on topic, am i the only one that thinks people need to leave this alone? the members of blink 182 aren't just members of blink 182. they're people. let them have their lives, and when they wanna talk about music, let the heckling begin. til then, can we just leave it alone?

    I agree with tmwtp, blink-182 are people, and they have to live their one lives, even if that means no blink-182. i am a fan of blink-182, and hopefully my band can open for them one day (laughs) but yeah, i do hope they re-unite, but if not, atleast I still have their cds

    "If - and this is a big if Blink-182 were ever to re-form, it would have to be the most amazing, ridiculous, mind-blowing show and tour ever." Hopes are up. I'm listened to these guys all my life, and up until their really whiney, emo-shit tracks. And I can still actually tolerate them.

    someone's mom didn't breast feed them. But on a different note! One important part of this interview was left out, the part about he and Tom. "On His Relationship With DeLonge: "Right now, we're getting back to just being friends. I talk to Tom several times a week, sometimes several times a day, and you know, he's still the same Tom that I talked to on tour buses four years ago. He still talks about UFOs and lasers and conspiracy theories. We talk about new bands we dig Vampire Weekend and the movie 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall.' We also make stupid fart jokes. God help us, we're grown men still making fart jokes. ... Who knows? I know two things: One, I'm just glad we're all friends again, and two, none of us know anything for sure beyond that." " They're still the same dumbshits they always were =) You just can't tell until they're together.
    uhh_me?

    I love blink-182 as much as the next guy, but I just can't help but think that they're doing this because the sales of a new blink record > all the records they made since the break.

    Seeing blink back on the top of the pop rock charts instead of hinder, tokio hotel and the likes would be awesome.

    hahaha, thats awesome. Fun pop-punk from the late 90s/early 00's is exactly what today's emo ridden scene needs. *ignores some of the self titled stuff*

    :O!! OMG! this is going to be the greatest reunion ever! I thought that Blink was dead, i hope that they reunite... if not i'm going to be very disappointed hahaha

    Ugh, this is what i don't understand. I really don't like Opeth, so i DON'T click on their articles, and I definitley don't wish death on band members. Hoping someone will die is one of the most cruel and cowardly things a human being can say.

    They're just rumours. I'm only getting excited when there are tour dates (in England...) announced.

    I would defineatly go and see them. but it wouldn't be the same unless delonge changed. I saw him w/ angels and airwaves and he's a little weird now.

    Wow maybe u shoulve made sure that u comment on pages that u actuallly like instead of being an a**hole
    TheChaz
    Honestly, the album would be freakin amazing but the tour would suck because of Tom. I saw angels & airwaves live and Tom was ear-piercingly bad. Also, he was like super weird and talking about all this super random crap, so unless something crazy happens the tour would fail. Mark still rocks though.
