SPIN: Blink's Bailout Package

Beneficiary: Blink-182
Cost to taxpayers: $3 million
The last thing Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker, and Mark Hoppus want to do is get back
together. They just made that dour comeback announcement at the Grammys because
Travis has medical bills to pay, Tom's Angels & Airwaves didn't end up making "the best fucking album anybody has heard in 20 years" like he promised, and Mark… Well, I have no idea what he's up to. He's probably just strapped for cash. So, let's save them the trouble of reforming for one subpar album ('cause how can you improve on an album title like Take Off Your Pants and Jacket?) by just giving them a million bucks each. Word to the wise: Don't invest it.

spin has always hated on blink. i bought an issue when i was at an airport in 2004 because it was the 10 year anniversary of kurt cobains death and most of the issue was about that. they had a review of blink in there and called them rip offs of the descendants and they have a review of the last descendants album and said "they did blink before blink knew how to do blink". that quote always stuck with me and pissed me off.
