How do you pronounce “blink-182?” SPOILER: This is just silly.
James Corden, a Brit, takes issue with the way we in North America pronounce the name “blink-182.” It’s “blink-one-eighty-two,” right? Well…
Don’t start this. I admit we are wrong on this. America calls them Blink One eighty two. Which is also wrong. They technically should be called Blink one hundred and eighty two. Don’t take some moral high ground here.

But then Tom DeLonge–who, of course, was a founding member of the group but is no longer in the band, decided to confuse things–just for fun.
It’s actually— Blink eighteen-two. People have all gotten this wrong for years. Sometimes this can happen with very complex, thoughtful and elevated art.
