why is it cool to hate Blink 182?

it seems that in the process of being hip, artistic, and anti-mainstream we have to despise any band that:
- has super catchy major key melodies
- easy instrumentation
- doesn't contain deep poetic lyrics
- the highschool popular crowd listens to

WHO CARES? their songs are fun, upbeat, and uplifting for the most part. go ahead, listen to Cheshire Cat or Dude Ranch. it'll make you feel good. maybe even bring back some good memories. when i was in highschool i went through a very long phase of hatred towards them. i loved them in the nineties but once i started digging deeper than the mainstream, i was under the impression that i had to avoid everything that was popular and associated with the "preppies". i learned eventually though, that regardless of mainstream or underground status, good is still good.


i'm glad their back. am i a big fan? certainly not. but i enjoy the shit out of their stuff. they're just a few guys who have a lot of fun while making music that other people can have fun while listening to. who can oppose that?

that's the whole point. they were normal guys, just like your friends down the block, who had a really really good time playing music the way they felt like playing it.
and they got big during that whole period of bubblegum, innocent pop star worship (remember when they actually talked about whether brittany or christina were virgins?), and you had these pop artists who rehearsed dances and had special effects and treated themselves like the biggest, more important divas on earth, and then Blink was just turning it all into a big joke. i didn't appreciate this before, even when i liked them the first time, but looking back, they were extremely refreshing. not all music has to take itself seriously. i enjoy plenty of music that is held in "high esteem", like Persian classical music, gagaku orchestras, western-European classical, French melodie and chansons, but i also love simple, fun, catchy pop rock and happy stuff that doesn't need to be held up at a high standard.


and anyway, look at the sahara tent. there are people who are not only running naked, like you complained about, but sucking on pacifiers, wearing furry things, flinging lights around, and dancing to 100 songs in a row that are all set around the same beat (thump thump thump thump), simple structure, and simple instrumentation that didn't even have to be played because it was all programmed. but if you mention Blink 182 or anything of that sort, people go crazy and start complaining. but if you mention the dance music played at coachella, maybe one or two people would wine, but that's it. but it's the same case. it's simple music that's based off of simple beat patterns and made so people can have a great time while listening to it. the style annoys my ears, and i don't have much interest in taking part in the rave culture, but i don't complain that it's just big stupid monster. it's just another form of music and performance made by people having a good time.

Obviously you only paid attention to what was on the radio or MTV. Dig deeper and you might find some stuff that was less childish

Here's what gets me about blink 182 being "back" and "reuniting." One story I read said they're rumored to open for Green Day this summer. Green Day hasn't put out an album since '04, which is right when blink broke up and I think even had their last album.

What's really the difference then between Green Day coming out with new material and blink 182 reuniting? Its the same mainstream pop punk sound but just different wording in terms of how both bands are resurfacing. This is probably the best example of how phrases like "breaking up," "hiatus" and "reuniting" have cheapened over the past years.
