Of all the bands that have made their name in the pop punk scene over the years, very few can claim to be as iconic and prevailing as Blink-182.
This three-piece rock outfit got their start in the southern California skate punk scene before rising to the mainstream and taking the world of music by storm. And despite lineup changes, a notorious hiatus, and personal tragedy among the band's members, Blink has endured for just over twenty-five years now.
In addition to their various demos, EPs, and compilations, Blink-182 has a released a total of seven studio albums over their long career. When listened to in succession, these records really paint a picture of just how much their style has evolved over time, as well as of their uncanny ability to go from carefree to poignant and back again at a moment's notice.
Now that Blink's most recent studio release, 'California' (and its deluxe edition), has been out for some time, it seems as good a time as any to try and decide which album from this iconic group's heterogeneous catalog is the very best.
A film-loving wrestling fan from west Texas who will live and die by the statement that Return of the Jedi is the best Star Wars movie and unironically cherishes the brief moment and time when Deuce & Domino were WWE Tag Team Champions. Hates honey, but loves honey mustard.
