Blink-182 is an American pop punk trio from California that consists of Tom DeLonge (vocals and guitar), Mark Hoppus (vocals and bass) and Travis Barker (drums). The band is celebrated for their humorous lyrics and catchy songs like ''Damn It'' and ''Rock Show.''
Blink-182 formed in 1992 in San Diego and originally called themselves Blink. They added the 182 part after learning that another band already used the name ''Blink.'' They released their first full album, 'Cheshire Cat,' in 1994. It was followed by their second album 'Dude Ranch' which featured the hit single ''Damn It.'' It wasn't until they released their third album 'Enema of the State' in 1999 that the band really took off. It featured the mega hit singles ''Adam's Song,'' ''All the Small Things'' and ''What's My Age Again.''
In 2005, the band broke up due to constant fighting. DeLonge formed the band Angels and Airwaves while Travis Barker joined the Transplants with Rancid's Tim Armstrong and Mark Hoppus formed Plus 44. None of the new bands came close to matching the success of Blink-182.
In 2008, the band members reconciled after Barker survived a tragic plane crash. They performed for the first time in many years at the Grammy Awards in 2009.
Blink-182 is currently working on their first studio album since 2003.
