Blink-182, formerly known as simply Blink, is a Southern-Californian punk rock band that was formed in 1992 by Tom Delonge and Mark Hoppus. The group is notable for the lyrical content of their songs which is humorous and often uplifting. The history of Blink began in 1992 when Hoppus moved to San Diego, California, and was thinking of starting a band, and was fortunately introduced to Delonge. The two of them later decided that they needed to look for a drummer, and DeLonge discovered Scott Raynor at his school who played drums. Thus the three of them started considering a number of names, before they agreed to call themselves just "blink." So, they started a trio band, which later on consists of Thomas (Tom) Matthew DeLonge on guitar, Markus (Mark) Allan Hoppus on bass, and Travis Landon Barker on drums.
