So even though people with their own bands have a different thread to talk about it, I just wanted to share that my band (which is also a trio) was asked to perform a blink-182 cover set on a festival called "The Kids Aren't Alright", in the campus of a big university here this week.

What do you guys think of the set-list?

Dumpweed
Up All Night
Anthem Pt. 2
Feeling This
What's My Age Again
Go
Mutt
Violence
Down
Easy Target
Stay Together For The Kids
Always
Happy Holidays, You Bastard
Story of a Lonely Guy
I Miss You
After Midnight
The Rock Show
First Date
Josie
All The Small Things
Fuck a Dog
Dammit

I think that I wish blink would play a setlist more like this one.

i would have picked half the set to be singles and the other half to be deep cuts. i mean, come on! you're making your own blink-182 setlist, essentially. show no mercy!

i would have liked to see some more Dude Ranch stuff on there. like Pathetic, Emo, Dick Lips, Waggy, or Enthused. and i (of course) would have been stoked if 21 Days was on there. and where is Carousel??

Yeah they've been together for fucking ever, since before Urethra Chronicles Part I that's for sure, at least. Both of them and their wives.

I don't think blink were that huge when they met though were they? I think either Mark or Tom met their wives while on the set for All The Small Things, but I could be wrong.

Even so, she's hot as hell. Good job, Mark.
"All The Small Things" was written for Tom's now-wife, and Mark was with his at least before MT&TS

Actually, I believe Mark's wife was working at MTV or something and Tom asked her out on behalf of Mark, haha

Yeah I agree man, unfortunately our lead singer/guitarist is not a blink addict like myself, so we had to go with the songs he already knows/remembers, since the show is this thursday and we only rehearsed yesterday. I miss Reckless Abandon, M+Ms, Carousel and Waggy so much on this set hahaha

I like the use of synths as well, actually. I don't think it makes them sound like AVA, whenever blink uses synths it still has a cool blink vibe to me.

NOOO!!

There is actually a Swedish band that's currently recording the whole "Neighborhoods" album as it should have sounded...
Blink must have the most hardcore fans ever..

They have also made alot of AVA songs in pop punk fashion, and all blink 182's acoustic songs:

Even though I'm a huge fan of pop-punk, I'm always glad to listen to blink doing their own thing and growing out of this genre. Personally I like their self-titled/neighborhoods songs better than the beggining of their career.

Nevertheless, this band is doing great covers!

I'm not a big fan of pop-punk for the most part, so it's whatever. Blink's best album is not a pop-punk album.

Completely agreed. I can't stand Enema anymore and TOYPAJ doesn't fair well with me anymore either.

Agree with all that shit. Neighbourhoods is my second favourite blink album and it's probably because it doesn't sound like a pop punk album.
