Lite Salad Days With Blink-182
By Joshua Klein
Special to The Washington Post
Wednesday, June 20, 2001; Page C05
Once upon a time, punk rock meant independence, anger, rebellion and frustration. It still means these things, sometimes. But since the alt-rock explosion in the early '90s, punk music has meant something else as well: money. Where a band like the Sex Pistols or the Clash once proved anathema and uncooperative from a marketing standpoint, now bands like California's Blink- 182 are essential tools for reaching that ever-shifting (but always youthful) target demographic.
Though Blink-182 has rebellion distilled to an image, the band members are no part-time punks. Those tattoos are permanent, and the trio should be commended for its dedication to cheap concert tickets and all-ages shows. The band embraces its stardom like it's a fluke, having fun as a fly in the ointment even as it skirts overexposure, yet exuding an irresistible fountain-of-youth appeal all the while: The bouncy and bounding Blink-182 will make you feel like you're a kid again, and if you are a kid, the band will make you feel you're the center of the universe.
But successful formulas have their downside, too. Blink-182's infectious pop, power-pop, pop-punk, but never powerful songs begin to blur into an anonymous wash of West Coast harmonies, fast drums and anthemic guitar riffs a mere third of the way into Blink-182's fifth studio album, "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket." The lead track sports the cookie-cutter title "Anthem Part Two," and even if the song features plenty of sturdy pop elements -- chiming guitars, exciting drums, endearing vocals and ear-catching chord changes -- it does sound a tad familiar, overlapping with the lingering singles from Blink-182's last studio album, the still successful "Enema of the State."
Elsewhere, immediately likable tracks like the propulsive "Online Songs," "First Date," "Please Take Me Home" and "The Rock Show" sound like soundtrack fodder of the highest order in search of a corresponding teen flick. More varied tracks like "Stay Together for the Kids" and "Roller Coaster" are remarkable not for the small stylistic risks they take, but for how little those risks really register.
The same could be said of the band's adolescent lyrics. As enjoyable, disposable and ultimately good-natured pop music, Blink-182 obviously has its heart in the right place, but clearly the mind doesn't matter. "She makes me feel like it's raining outside," whines guitarist Tom Delonge, the more adenoidal of Blink-182's two vocalists, in "Story of a Lonely Guy." But what does that really mean? He feels wet?
If Blink-182 is soaking in anything it's fame and fortune, and there's nothing on the innocuous "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket" that indicates the band will loosen its grip on the youth of today anytime soon. But in listening to the disc, it becomes immediately clear why a pop-punk predecessor and trend-setting band like Green Day felt compelled to move from its no-nonsense, snotty punk roots. Stagnation is only one small step away from satisfaction, and while Blink-182 still rocks the house, it might start thinking how better to rock the boat.
-Travis was featured on the cover of a drumming magazine where he won for best drummer of the year.
-There is an interview on MTV.com with Mark about the new album. Its a really good read. Check it out HERE

-5/8/01 -I added a new pic of the band in the pics section. There will be more soon as soon as I get my pics from the concert scanned.
-Blink new video for "The Rock Show" will debut on Friday May 18th on crappy TRL.
-Last night, May 7, was the concert at 9:30 Club here in Washington DC. It was an amazing show. I saw Tom breifly before the show. I shook his hand right before security pushed him backstage. He has two huge guys guarding him. I was mad that I didnt get a picture with him, but I've met him before so it was no big deal. As for the show, it was great! Their new songs were awesome. Then there was the return of Satan, of Mark, Tom, and Travis Show fame, who recited one of his poems. Tom and Mark were funny as usual. At the end, Mark did a little drum solo which was pretty funny. I didn't know he knew how to play. All in all, it was a great show and cant wait to see them with New Found Glory this summer!
-4/30/01 -Blink's new single The Rock Show is out now and it is an amazing song! Look out for it on the radio.
-4/29/01 -Well I'm really tired of people emailing asking for the lyrics for The Rock Show so here they are!!
Hanging out behind the club on the weekends
Acting stupid, getting drunk with my best friends
I couldn't wait for the summer at the Warped Tour
I rememeber that it's the first time that I saw her there
She's getting kicked out of school cause she's failing
I'm kinda nervous, cause I think all her friends hate me
She's the one, she'll always be there
She took my hand and I made it, I swear
Cause I fell in love with the girl at the rock show
She said, "What?" I told her that I didn't know
She's so cool, better sneak me in through the window
Everything's better when she's around
Can't wait until her parents go out of town
I fell in love with the girl at the rock show
When we said we were gonna move to Vegas
I rememeber the look her mother gave us
Seventeen without a purpose or direction
We don't owe anyone a fuckin' explatation
Black and white pictures of her on my wall
I waited for her call, she always kept me waiting
And if I ever got another chance I'd still ask her to dance
Because she kept me waiting
Fell in love with the girl at the rock show (Repeat 5x)
I'll never forget her
