Agreed. I'd only be ok with this if blink opened for GD. GD opening for blink again would be mortifying.
Anyway, still don't think i'd be that bothered (besides the fact that i'd get to see GD of course). Every report i've heard about blink says that they are shite live. Not trying to rail on lbink that much, i do like them (albeit as a guilty pleasure) but in all fairness, i'll never know why GD were the ones opening last time around.
Because Blink were more successful. GD took advantage as a way to get themselves some new fans. And Mike Dirnt thought it was a good way to get the best Pop Punk bands of the era to stand separate from the rest of the mainstream garbage (I'd like to remind everyone that Blink came from a punk scene, the same cannot be said for any band that followed them).
Don't really mind Blink, but I'm not sure if I'd like this or not.
Hey hey hey. They are a great live band with an energetic performance. Anyone who says otherwise obviously hasn't seen them.
They would be perfect for opening for Green Day.
They might be good live, but they're song writing at least, in my opinion, is very lacking. They're also one of those modern pop punk bands that is totally Blink obsessed and lacks their own image: A friend of mine saw them live and she told me that they told the same jokes from Blink's live album The Enema Strikes Back! and their whole scene kid look is done by a thousand other bands (I know image isn't important, but it's just plain annoying).Had they come around earlier I would have a higher opinion of them, but at this point, they are everything that's wrong with the genre right now.
Say what you want about Blink, I'm used to green day fans insulting them, but self titled is a little masterpiece nobody will say a bad word for it :angry
The Untitled album is incredible. I used to absolutely hate that record and now it's probably my favorite Blink record. I consider it a work of art. Definitely their American Idiot. I just wish it didn't fuck up all the pop punk bands that followed that album.
