Blink-182 is an American rock band formed in Poway, a suburb of San Diego, California, in 1992. The band currently consists of bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus, and drummer Travis Barker. Blink-182 is considered a key group in the development of pop punk music; their combination of pop melodies with fast-paced punk rock featured a more radio-friendly accessibility than prior bands. Founded by Mark Hoppus, guitarist and vocalist Tom DeLonge and drummer Scott Raynor, the band emerged from the Southern California punk scene of the early 1990s and first gained notoriety for high-energy live shows and irreverent lyrical toilet humor.
