    The pop punk trio blink-182 was formed in the suburbs of San Diego, California around guitarist/vocalist TomDelonge,bassist/vocalistMarkHoppus, and drummer Scott Raynor. Originally known as simply Blink, the band debuted in 1993 with a self-released EP, Fly Swatter.Afterreleasing the album Buddha in 1994, the trio signed to Grilled Cheese/Cargo and released CheshireCat thefollowing year. The threatof alawsuit from a similarly named Irish band forced them to change their name to blink-182, butthe group earneda higher profile touringtheworld with Pennywise and NOFX on the 1996-1997 Warped Tour, plus appearing oninnumerableskate/surf/snowboarding videos.

    The third blink-182 LP, Dude Ranch, was jointly released in 1997 by Cargo and MCA. Dude Ranch expanded the group'saudienceandwentplatinum by the end of 1998, due in part to the popularity of their infectious teen anthem, "Dammit (Growing Up)." Thegroupalsosignedofficially with MCA, which released the band's fourth album, Enema of the State, in the summer of 1999. Thealbum, produced byJerryFinn(Green Day, Rancid), also welcomed a new member into the trio's ranks; Travis Barker, formerly withthe Aquabats, settled in ondrumsafterRaynor left midway through a 1998 U.S. tour. Enema was greeted with almost immediatesuccess, and helped the bandachievethemainstream status of toilet-humored pop-punk kings that Dude Ranch had only hinted at.Driven by the commerciallysuccessfulsingles"What's My Age Again?," "All The Small Things," and "Adam's Song," music videos forthe three songs (whose clips includedthemesofstreaking and boy band spoofs) were MTV smashes as well.

    After selling over four million copies of Enema of the State, the trio played on with the limited-edition release The Mark, Tom,andTravisShow(The Enema Strikes Back) in fall 2000. The album featured the band's radio hits in a live setting, intertwined with theirquirkysense ofhumoras well as the new song "Man Overboard." Take Off Your Pants and Jacket, issued in spring 2001, saw theband return to theirSoCalpunk rockroots. Maturity, of a sort, came with 2003's self-titled album, released on Geffen. Not only didthe album sport a song ("AllofThis") thatfeatured Robert Smith of the Cure, but "I Miss You" also topped the modern rock charts in2005.

    In February 2005, however, popular as ever and seemingly indestructible, blink-182 unexpectedly announced they would begoingonan"indefinite hiatus," supposedly to spend more time with their growing families. Asking fans for help in selecting tracks,thegroupissuedGreatest Hits that November. Bandmembers also continued on with other projects: Barker -- who had previouslyreleased analbumwithDelonge as Boxcar Racer -- continued playing with the Transplants and running his clothing company,Famous Stars and Straps.Hisfamilywas also spotlighted in the MTV reality show Meet the Barkers. Hoppus carried on with hisAtticus fashion venture, began producing --starting with Motion City Soundtrack's Commit This to Memory -- and hosting his ownpodcasts. He further began work with Barker inanewband, Plus 44. Delonge also continued work with his lifestyle clothingcompany, Macbeth, and formally announced his newproject,Angelsand Airwaves, that fall.---- FROM MTV.COM « hide
