Blink-182 have been a dominant force in the pop-punk scene for over two decades. With their honest lyrics, catchy riffs, and accessible melodies, it’s easy to see why the band have been so successful.
Though many hardcore fans love their earlier, more rugged sound, the bulk of the band’s most recognisable material was released in the late 1990s and early 2000s. It was during this period that Blink-182 had a string of hugely successful albums and singles, many of which remain pop-punk anthems to this day.
Whilst there are certainly more experimental bands out there, Blink-182 didn’t shy away from taking risks. This was particularly evident on their self-titled album which featured a more varied roster of songs than any of their previous releases.
They also deserve praise for their consistency. Sure, some records are definitely better than others, but all of their studio albums are worth listening to. Even without founding member Tom DeLonge, the band have continued to put out plenty of great tunes in recent years.
As such, Blink rightly deserve their reputation as one of the best pop-punk bands on the planet…
