Blink-182 have given us a new anthem for the pandemic. The first release since last year’s NINE, ‘Quarantine’, sees Blink offer up some fire commentary on the United States and their approach to the virus outbreak.
Absolutely roasting those who didn’t take it seriously, Blink-182 sing, “It’ll disappear in April/ Just like a miracle/ We don’t need social distance/ We don’t need old people.”
“So throw the shop doors open/ And save our economy/ We don’t need ICU beds/ Or PPE.”
And, our fave line, “I thought that things were fucked up in 2019.” Because, same.
It’s a catchy AF punk-rock jam too. It’s filled with quick bars like something off The Offspring’s Americana but has peak nostalgic Blink vibes too.
‘Quarantine’ is set to appear on the forthcoming Blink-182 EP. The EP was slated to arrive by the end of our Winter — but with only one single so far, and Winter ending pretty soon — it might be a bit longer.
The EP it apparently set to feature Lil Uzi Vert and Pharrell Williams too.
Blink-182 are nominated for two VMAs this year. They’re up for ‘Best Rock’ and ‘Best Music Video From Home’, both for ‘Happy Days’.
