Best Coast Cover Blink-182

Blink-182 had a very good run around the turn of the millennium, with a personal brand that fell somewhere between Weezer and Jackass and made them icons to kids looking for goofy/smart alt.heroes capable of consistently churning out MTV-playlist dominating pop-punk. (See: “Adam’s Song,” “Stay Together For The Kids,” “All The Small Things,” etc.). These days they’re reformed and close to finishing work on a new LP, the first since their 2003 self-titled release. Accordingly, you can expect an uptick in Blink awareness and wares across the board: Mark Hoppus hosts a show on Fuse (disclosure: I’m on it this Friday, talking about festivals and 69 Love Songs), and artists like Best Coast and Wavves go on said show to tell him they love early Blink. (It’s mutual.) Bethany went one bigger the other night, getting Spectrals onstage and covering Blink-182’s “Dammit” (that’s that video in which Mark Hoppus has remarkable hair just kidding that was all of them). She tweeted it out, and now it’s here, sloppy but fun and reverent:


The original. Fun guys:
