My subject of choice is on my favorite band called Blink-182. I chose this artist because of the impact they had on my life as a teenager. Lets start off on who the band is and what they do. Blink-182 is a pop-punk band that was formed in 1992 and still plays music today; their members are Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker. When they formed in 1992 they sang songs of what life’s like as a teenager and the ordeals that teens go through.

Its weird how such a sad song can be so good and addicting. It’s the most played song on my iTunes because its one of my favorite songs. “Adam’s song” definitely helped me get through Spencer’s death, and that’s one of the many reasons that Blink-182 is my favorite band. “Adam’s song” is not the only song by Blink-182 that means a lot to me. Blink-182’s song “Don’t Leave Me” was about a messy breakup and that the guy wants to start over again but the girl wont. This song is basically a story of my last...
