Blink-182 was an American pop punk trio formed in 1992 in Poway, California.

The band, then known simply as Blink, originally composed of vocalist and guitarist Tom DeLonge, drummer Scott Raynor and vocalist and bassist Mark Hoppus.

In 1998, midway through a U.S.

tour, drummer Travis Barker replaced Raynor.

DeLonge left the group in early 2005, with the band portraying it as an "indefinite hiatus".

DeLonge went on to play alternative rock in Angels & Airwaves, while Hoppus and Barker continued in a similar genre with their band +44.

DeLonge cites punk rock bands Descendents and Screeching Weasel as influences, although the band's songwriting and production were driven by a pop sensibility.

Blink-182 are known for their simple melodies, teen angst and lyrical toilet humour, and by their hit singles "Dammit", "What's My Age Again?", "All the Small Things", "Adam's Song", "The Rock Show", "First Date", "Stay Together for the Kids", "Feeling This" and "I Miss You".
