Even their older stuff? I don't get why, Dude Ranch through TOYPAJ have a pretty similar sound to the alkaline songs posted in this thread to me I'm enjoying both at the moment haha

I don't think they sound similar at all. Even their early stuff. But the sound isn't even the part that does it for me. I can't stand Blink's lyrics and I don't respect them as people or musicians (except Travis, he's one hell of a drummer).

This is just my opinion.

Yeah, the Blink dudes are definitely fans of the Trio. Tom even said that he went back and re-wrote some of his lyrics for the S/T album after listening to Skiba's lyrics, because he thought they were so good. But yeah, there's no way you can write a pop-punk song and not rip off someone. There are only so many chord progressions.

no care just enjoy the music. guitar is bound to sound similar but you can always experiment with your voice and lyrics because it's something that is unique to you.

there are seriously only so many chord progressions. of course, they're going to get re-used and recycled. the songs themselves are completely different

Give Alkaline Trio so more listens, they're a very excellent pop punk band. They are a dual vocals band like Blink as I'm sure you found out with you've got so far to go. Good Mourning is my favorite album, but be prepared for yet another change in the vocals as one of the singers sang his part of the album with blown out vocal chords.
