Blink-182 recently released a new song and music video with Steve Aoki, and wow… So much to talk about. The lyrics are wack, the video is wack, the collaboration is wack, Steve’s Kill Bill jumpsuit is kinda cool but also kinda wack, and there’s just a lot of things going wrong with a band that’s been so important to us over the years.
That then begs the questions… Did the integrity of the band leave with Tom? Have they sold out? Do we care if they sold out? What does the future of Blink-182 look like moving forward? Before we can answer those questions, we gotta do what we do best: speculate wildly over unimportant details of the music video, and break down the lyrics that are super self-explanatory, but not before totally forgetting to mention major details like the blinding and totally cringe-worthy Smirnoff vodka ad that totally just made matters worse.
Also, Tom is starting a vlog (but don’t tell Pat), the guys discuss publishing their first book, our sister station “Oh, Canada” drops in to give some takes on Mr. Aoki, and we all take a little bit of time to relax.
