Blink-182 is a post punk phenomena and just pure fun music. They are fun to listen to, dance to or just jumping up and down to. The band was formed in 1992, in Poway, California. The American pop punk rock band first gained notoriety in the early 90’s. The band was first known as Blink, but they had to change their name due to an Irish band Blink already owned the rights to the name, and threatened legal action if they band didn’t change their name, so the 182 appeared. Blink 182 has sold over thirty five million albums worldwide.
Blink 182 consists of three members, founded by Tom DeLong, Mark Hoppus, and Scott Raynor, but since 2015, the line-up of the band has consisted of bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus, drummer Travis Barker and guitarist and vocalist Matt Skiba.

Blink 182 created a new logo. The new logo is a smiley face with X’s for each eye and five arrows on the left side of the face. Barker came up with the logo. He wanted to brand an icon that was specially designed for the band. The cover of the Blink-182 album has just the band’s name, then the logo with the ‘smiley face’.
