Blink-182 (typeset "blink-182" on most official merchandise) was a pop punk band originally formed in 1992 by Tom DeLonge (vocals and guitar) a northern suburb of San Diego. Originally, the band's official name was "Blink", however, the numerical three digit suffix was appended early in their career following an objection from an Irish band with the same name. Travis Barker replaced Raynor on drums in 1998, midway through a U.S. tour. The group effectively broke up in early 2005, portraying it as an "indefinite hiatus". DeLonge went on to form Angels and Airwaves while Hoppus and Barker spawned +44.
