Video: Blink 182 - "Up All Night"

OK, if you're familiar with this blog you are probably a little surprised or confused as to why a Blink 182 video is on our site but stay with me here.

Admittedly I'm not the biggest Blink 182 fan in the world, I've always enjoyed their music and even caught them in concert way back when. They've always been a fun band that never take themselves too seriously which is always a big plus in my book. A perfect example is the band's latest music video. For the video the band took footage from YouTube of people using their music without the bands permission and created a whole new video around all the footage. That's right, they didn't have YouTube take the fan made videos down instead they kind of rewarded their fans for just being fans.

I can't think of a whole lot of bands who would of done anything quite so cool. Nowadays you can't even watch music videos on YouTube unless you sit through some boring ass advertisement first, it sucks and makes me nostalgic for the old days of YouTube. In any case I just wanted to say kudos to Blink 182 and declare them really cool dudes.

You can also catch Blink 182 in Tempe on Friday, September 30th when the play this year's Fall Frenzy. It's actually a pretty solid line-up this year with Blink 182, Matt & Kim and Jimmy Eat World.
