""The band was originally composed of Tom DeLonge (vocals, guitar), Mark Hoppus (vocals, bass) and Scott Raynor (drums). In 1998, midway through a U.S. tour, drummer Travis Barker replaced Raynor. DeLonge left the group in early 2005, initiating an indefinite hiatus. DeLonge went on to form Angels & Airwaves, while Hoppus and Barker continued playing music together in +44. On February 8, 2009, Blink-182 announced that they are continuing as a band.
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.
