Nobody likes you when you’re 23 — unless you’re the band that soundtracked the lives of countless teenage troublemakers. Pop-punk fans are rejoicing following news that blink-182 will release a follow up to 2011’s Neighborhoods in 2016. The news is bittersweet for longtime fans, as it will mark the band’s first album without founding member Tom DeLonge, who quit the group in 2015 after 23 years. “We are right now going through what so far has been a friendly divorce with our former guitarist,” Mark Hoppus said on the Das Process podcast earlier this year.

Blink 182 Article Alternative Nation
John Feldman, the producer of Blink-182’s new album California, revealed in a recent Fuel article that “San Diego” is about former Blink-182 singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge.
“The history of the song [is about] growing up in San Diego, having so many of their work partners being from San Diego and having a member who lives in San Diego who is no longer in the band…it was a song that Mark didn’t want to write. I brought up the idea that you have to write about shit you don’t want to write about. You have to write about shit that’s right there on the surface.
There’s clearly a lot of feelings involved with having a best friend who is not in your band anymore, having a best friend with all that stuff that went down. Every band has these issues. To write a song, now, in their minds, to go back to San Diego, playing shows and tipping their hat to the city that allowed them to be a band…to me, Blink put San Diego on the map. If you think of its geographic location, they’re the band that made San Diego relevant as a city. I say that with the utmost respect to San Diego because I was born in San Diego, I grew up in San Diego but no body gave a fuck about San Diego. It was just like a place and suddenly Blink happened and it was like Seattle.
The song acts as a bittersweet homage, a goodbye to this city that none of us live in anymore but owe so much to, while acknowledging the interpersonal relationships within the band.”
