Blink-182: Greatest Hits [DVD]
1

Sound — 10
The music on the DVD is all taken from the blink-182 Greatest Hits cd, so the sound is great, and the music is... great. All the videos are well directed and well put together, that it almost looks like they are playing them live. The earlier videos are almost like movies themselves, keeping you entertained by telling a story, that helps the people that aren't smart interpreters understand the songs. These are music videos so the songs are edited... sorry... no swearing.

Content — 9
This DVD is a best of collection, including every music video... except for two. Okay three if you count the alternate version of Stay Together for the Kids and that's the one I remember seeing on MTV when that song was a single. Okay four if you count Anthem Pt. 2 (live in Chicago) which might've been released as a single, but was not on the greatest hits cd. I was very satisfied of the content, although there are no special features.

Production Quality — 10
Like I said before, these videos are very well put together. Almost looking like they are playing the songs live. They also have shot most of the videos to look like your watching a video of what's happening in the song. Yes, I know, you're saying "most videos are shot like that", but these ones are not like most videos, these videos have Blink-humor (dirty jokes).

Overall Impression — 10
This DVD is great. There is nothing SUPER special about this DVD, but it's still a great buy. All the videos are very-well put together, and this DVD includes all of my favorite Blink songs. The down side, it is missing "M&M's" and "Not Now", which are singles and had official videos made for the songs, also, there should've been at least some type of biography or clips of them playing a show, kinda making it like the Urethra Chronicals. If I lost this, I would defiantly buy it again. I gotta have my blink!

They are both very popular bands, and very commercialized, but wheres the love for MCR?? Personally i like them both, but I'de have to say MCR's music is much more profound/creative.
    if youve ever heard MCR play metal youd know they make music for money thats why they are shit...they switch to whatever it is they do now so they can make money and ended up ****ing themselves..each new album it a disappointment to there fans...blink 182 on the other hand..you have to have some skill to make a song of curse words and still make it sound good..yes there songs are simple guitar wise but they seem to rock those power chords like no tomorrow

MCR is a great band but they have got a long way to go before they are even a touch on blink. as for blink's music not being as creative as MCR's, you've clearly not listened to all blink's work, or you just don't understand it. They put their heart and sould into every lyric, every chord, every note of every song (except of course the joke songs lol).
    sometimes they put more into the joke songs

    Wow, if you would have taken out the "shitty" in the post, it would have almost been valid. Stop being a dick. And what's up with the review? Did a 12 year old find UG a little too early in life?

    Because MCR are just a bunch of wanna be emo loser kids whereas blink just did there own funny thing like family reunion. its respectable to make a song where every word is a swear word

    Just because you don't their music, it doesn't mean they're 'a joke'. No matter how simple the music is, it is brilliant.
