If you've never heard of those songs, or you heard them and thought they were rubbish, congratulations! Your opinion is shared by 99.9% of the earth's population. Sadly, fans' insistence that Tom peaked with Mutt has really bummed him out over the last decade, so he's spent most of it trying to carve a niche as a creative force. Except no one likes his 'serious phase' or his black clothes, so he quit in 2004 and now he's quit again...OR HAS HE????
Tom claims he hasn't left the band. Mark and Travis claim this is bullshit. I'd pull some quotes from their Rolling Stone interview clarifying the situation if I could be bothered, but this is the internet! I'll embed Mark's tweet so you know I'm not making this whole thing up.
So what's next for Blink-182? Matt Skiba, of Alkaline Trio, is replacing Tom for coming shows. No word on a new album, which is probably for the best if you heard Neighbourhoods.
Yes Mark. We don't need Tom or this town.
