When I first heard that Blink-182 hadn’t been nominated for a Grammy before this year, I thought that I had to be wrong. There was no way that they have made so many smash hits without being recognized. Well, believe it people because it is true. They have made smash hits like “What’s My Age Again”, “Adam’s Song”, “Stay Together For The Kids”, and have never been nominated, until now.
Their newest album California, finally earned them a Grammy nod, and I hope that they win. I really do. These guys are icons, even with Tom gone from the band, they are still working their asses off and making great music.
Mark Hoppus is out of his mind excited and I don’t blame him one bit.
Congrats guys! I hope you win!

I will say that the only thing that bums me out about this new tour and song, and well album as well is that Tom Delonge has been replaced. If you remember he kind of went off the deep end for a bit talking about aliens and different things, according to Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker, he also wasn’t on board for any new music, so the band had to move on without him. Tom was replaced by the lead singer of Alkaline Trio, Matt Skiba, who kind of sounds a lot like Mark Hoppus, so it’s a little weird.
Anyway, the song is called ‘Bored To Death’ and I get a very +44 vibe from it, but it isn’t a bad thing. I do enjoy the song, I just miss Tom’s voice.
I am happy that Blink-182 is back though, they just make me happy.
