Greatest Hits is the first greatest hits album of American rock band Blink It was released on October 31, by Geffen Records. Greatest Hits was created by Geffen shortly after the band's February breakup, termed an "indefinite hiatus" by the label. Tensions had risen in the group and guitarist Tom DeLonge desired to take time off. Bassist Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker argued with DeLonge regarding the band's future and their possible next album, and heated exchanges led to DeLonge's exit. The compilation collects the band's most successful singles with one new song and a non-album track.

A tribute to the band who made growing up optional
Blink are back with a new album and tour, and we asked their fans to select their best songs. The group hasn't played with DeLonge since October of , though he still insists he's somehow even in the band. That's a little confusing since he isn't on the album, won't be on the tour and has been replaced. Anyway, we asked our readers to select their favorite Blink songs. Here are the results. Blink's song "Down" was their last single to hit radio in a big way before the group completely melted down. The Enema of the State track "Mutt" played a huge role in the band's breakthrough. They first cut it in with original drummer Scott Raynor for the American Pie soundtrack, which is where they met producer Jerry Finn. By the time sessions began, Raynor had been replaced by Travis Barker.
19. Stockholm Syndrome (blink-182, 2003)
With such shifting tones — both sonically and philosophically — different fans from contrasting eras will surely have their own opinions on which sorts of songs belong on a list like this. Yes, they could. Tapping into the airy, intelligent musicality of that self-titled and letting Matt really cut loose for the first time in its depiction of lovelorn depression, No Heart To Speak Of proves that blink still pack the ability to match the feats of their past. Depicting a scene where one half of a couple begs the other to stay as the raindrops plummet outside, it luxuriates in the raw emotion of that bargaining and ultimate loss.

Blink formed in Poway , a suburb of San Diego, California in The trio consists of bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus , drummer Travis Barker , and guitarist and vocalist Matt Skiba replacing Tom DeLonge who helped found the band and played in it until The band is considered a key group in the development of pop punk music; their combination of pop melodies with fast-paced punk rock featured a more radio-friendly accessibility than prior bands. The group, with original drummer Scott Raynor , emerged from the Southern California punk scene of the early s and first gained notoriety for high-energy live shows and irreverent lyrical toilet humor. The band were initially known as Blink until an Irish techno band threatened legal action; they appended "" randomly. However, the band proceeded to make up many reasons for the number, such as the number of times Al Pacino said the word 'fuck' in the film Scarface , Mark Hoppus' goal weight, and others. Raynor was fired midway through a tour and replaced by Barker.
