Blink 182 – The Rock Show

Blink 182 is a pop punk / punk rock / skate punk / alternative rock band from San Diego, California in the United States. They were formed in 1992, disbanded in 2005 and reformed in 2009. Blink 182 was originally known as Blink. Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker are the current members of Blink 182. The Rock Show was released on the Take Off Your Pants & Jacket album in 2001. The song was written by Mark Hoppus after the producer for the album told the band that they needed “feel-good” songs on their record. The video for The Rock Show was directed by The Malloy brothers (who have been responsible for directing tons of music videos over the last 10 years for artists like Weezer, Vertical Horizon and others). Take Off Your Pants & Jacket was the band’s 4th studio album. This is one of my favorite songs of the decade and for this reason it has been selected for readers of Running Wolf’s Rant.

This is the video for The Rock Show followed by the lyrics:

Hanging out behind the club on the weekend.
Acting stupid, getting drunk with my best friends.
I couldn’t wait for the summer and the Warped Tour.
I remember it’s the first time that I saw her there.

She’s getting kicked out of school ’cause she’s failing
I’m kind of nervous, cause I think all her friends hate me.
She’s the one, she’ll always be there
She took my hand and I made it I swear.

Because I fell in love with the girl at the rock show
She said ‘what?’
And I told her that I didn’t know
She’s so cool
Gonna sneak in through her window .
Everything’s better when she’s around
Can’t wait ’til her parents go out of town.
I fell in love with the girl at the rock show.

When we said we were gonna move to Vegas
I remember the look her mother gave us
Seventeen without a purpose or direction
We don’t owe anyone a f****’ explanation

I fell in love with the girl at the rock show
She said ‘what?’
And I told her that I didn’t know
She’s so cool
Gonna sneak in through her window
Everything’s better when she’s around
Can’t wait ’til her parents go out of town
I fell in love with the girl at the rock show

Black and white picture of her on my wall
I waited for her call
She always kept me waiting
And if I ever got another chance
I’d still ask her to dance
Because she kept me waiting

I fell in love with the girl at the rock show
She said ‘what?’
And I told her that I didn’t know
She’s so cool
Gonna sneak in through her window
Everything’s better when she’s around
Can’t wait ’til her parents go out of town
I fell in love with the girl at the rock show

With the girl at the rock show [x2]

I’ll never forget tonight (with the girl at the rock show) [fade out]
