Pop-punk idols Blink-182 are a group whose sound defined a generation of early millennials, including Alex Pall and Drew Taggart themselves. Their Take Off Your Pants and Jacket LP was practically a holy book for many late 20s- and early 30s-somethings during their angsty teen days.
The same could be said for The Chainsmokers‘ influence over the later millennial generation. With chart-toppers like “Paris” and “Closer,” which actually nods to Blink-182 in the lyric, “”Stay and play that Blink-182 song,” the Chainsmokers have entered into the mainstream consciousness for years to come.
How fitting then that the two groups are in the studio together working on a future collaboration. The Chainsmokers were so elated, they took to Twitter to release some of their excitement. “Just did a session with blink182 and wrote an amazing song,” The Chainsmokers tweeted. “We can die happy now.”
Mark Hoppus, a member of Blink-182, also spoke publicly about the collaboration: “We’ve been friends with them for a few years and have tried to collaborate a bunch of different times. But today our schedules aligned and we were all in the same room at the same time.”
The project sounds like it’s in its early stages, with no release date is in sight…but one can bet that when it does see the light of day, the collaboration will be instantly plastered across the radio.
