Blink 182 Day – July 1, 2023

Blink 182 Day is celebrated each year the 182nd day of the year. This year, it takes place on . The band was formed in a suburb of San Diego and was known as Blink, and its original members were bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus, drummer Travis Barker, and guitarist and vocalist Matt Skiba.

History of Blink 182 Day

Blink 182 Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the existence of the band, its members, their music, and widespread popularity. The band has had quite a few name changes, initially being christened as Duck Tape, and later adopting the name Blink. However, they had to add 182 as another artist was using the name Blink. Though no one really knows why that specific number was chosen, albeit some theories say it’s because of how many times Al Pacino says a certain curse word in the movie Scarface.
