blink-182 Biography

blink-182 are one of the biggest mainstream rock crossover bands of the 21st century, sustaining multiple iterations to sell over 50 million albums worldwide and notch two No. 1 albums in two decades. Formed in 1992 by bassist Mark Hoppus, guitarist Tom DeLonge and drummer Scott Raynor, the pop punk pioneers became staples of their local San Diego scene as well as the Warped Tour circuit before breaking through with their sophomore effort Dude Ranch (1997). The Aquabats drummer Travis Barker took Raynor's place ahead of blink-182’s 1999 breakthrough, Enema of the State, and with this new core lineup, the group earned their first of eight Top 10 albums behind their first Hot 100-charting hits “What's My Age Again?” and “All the Small Things.” blink-182’s 2001 follow-up Take Off Your Pants and Jacket debuted atop the Billboard 200, while 2003’s self-titled album revealed a significant artistic shift on singles like “I Miss You,” which would top the Billboard Alternative Airplay chart. Following a hiatus, the trio reconvened for 2011’s Neighborhoods before Alkaline Trio singer and guitarist Matt Skiba took over for DeLonge in 2015. 2016’s California became blink-182’s second No. 1 album, featured their first Gold single in over a decade, “Bored to Death,” and went on to score the group’s first Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album in 2017. The core lineup of Hoppus, DeLonge and Barker officially reunited in 2022, and ushered in their album One More Time… in October 2023.
