Modern rock history was made on May 14th of this year, when Blink-182 played its first show in four years. The trio had a messy breakup in 2005; singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge formed Angels & Airwaves, and that was that. Then drummer Travis Barker survived a plane crash, everybody had time to re-think, and DeLonge, Barker and bassist Mark Hoppus finally decided the time was right. Blink’s tour is already one of this summer’s blockbusters, with Rock Band favorites Weezer, All-American Rejects and Panic At the Disco providing support in different cities.
That first show happened at Paramount Pictures in Hollywood, where Blink-182 were the surprise addition to a bill that already included Weezer and Barker’s other project DJ AM. The first song of Blink’s reunion was longtime live fave “The Rock Show,” so it's only fitting that it’s also in our Rock Band three-pack. So is “Feeling This,” which was also in the set that night. They didn’t play “Down” that night, but it’s a safe bet that the song (from their last pre-breakup album) will turn up in their sets over the summer. Hoppus said afterward that the reunion show was one of the greatest nights of his life, so this three-pack should help you pick up the celebratory vibe.
