Blink 182 is one of if not the single most influential bands of the past 20 years

Blink 182 has always written sincere and fun music.  Their lyrics aren't always the best, and their musicianship certainly isn't awe-inspiring, but they bring an energy and passion that most bands/artists just don't have.

They will definitely go down in history as one of the most influential bands of all time.

They're certainly one of the catchiest mainstream punk bands. Who doesn't know all the lyrics of "All The Small Things?" and that video mocking the backstreet boys was classic

I couldn't disagree with you more. I own every Blink CD and have seen them perform live about five times, but too me, they were just like every other pop-punk band. Green Day is one of the best bands of the past 20 years and easily one of the top three bands that inspired Blink. Billie Joe Armstrong is a lyrical genius and the music is nothing short of perfection.

I definitely think both bands have their strengths, but I think Blink really brought the genre to the forefront of mainstream media. No doubt Green Day played a huge part not only in defining the genre, but also making bands like Blink possible. I just don't think they really had the impact on future generations of bands that Blink did. I guess my title should be changed, because I'm not trying to say Blink is better, I'm just saying that I think they will be cited before a lot of other bands with fans and bands a like in today's scene.
