The Ongoing History of New Music, Episode 774: The Rise and Fall and Rise of blink-182, Part 2

It’s rare that a band that has two acts, although not impossible. The survivors of Joy Division managed to do quite well as New Order. The Barenaked Ladies were once written off as dead before roaring back to life. And how many times has Black Sabbath risen from the dead?

Green Day is another example. They’d run out of gas by the end of the 90s and contemplated breaking up for good. But then they reinvigorated themselves with their American Idiot period and continue to do well.

And there’s the story of blink-182. By 2000, they’d made it to the top and were selling tens of millions of albums. But then things started to go sideways.

However, like Green Day, they were able to recover from a near-fatal career nosedive–but not before enduring some serious (and literal) casualties. That’s just some of what we’ll cover on part two of a three-part look at blink-182.

Songs included in this show:

blink-182, Bored to Death

blink-182, Man Overboard
