Have We Been Pronouncing "BLINK-182" Wrong All This Time?
There's an ongoing debate on the internet right now as to how Blink-182's name should actually be pronounced, and you'll be shocked to learn the real deal.
It all started when The Late Late Show with James Corden co-headwriter and stand-up comedian Ian Karmel sparked a Twitter debate with the band's members Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus.
The British call Blink-182 “Blink One Eight Two” and I’m not saying that’s WHY they lost the Revolutionary War, but...— Karmitzvah (@IanKarmel) November 19, 2018
The Late Late Show host couldn't help but to chime in, saying everyone has gotten it all wrong. "They technically should be called Blink one hundred and eighty two", Corden said in his tweet.
Don’t start this. I admit we are wrong on this. America calls them Blink One eighty two. Which is also wrong. They technically should be called Blink one hundred and eighty two. Don’t take some moral high ground here. https://t.co/zm2Gpb6xtT— James Corden (@JKCorden) November 19, 2018
Amidst the fan debate and confusion, Blink-182's ex-singer and founder Tom DeLonge finally came to the rescue to settle the argument once and for all. It's crazy how we've been wrong all these years!
It’s actually— Blink eighteen-two. People have all gotten this wrong for years. Sometimes this can happen with very complex, thoughtful and elevated art. https://t.co/jmsfv401KF— Tom DeLonge (@tomdelonge) November 19, 2018
