Here’s a little Flash Back Friday for you courtesy of Twitter account, UberFacts. In a tweet from the account that only posts “the most unimportant things you’ll never need to know”, they shared some news about Blink-182.
Back in 1998, just prior to the release of Enema of the State, Blink-182 had the task of naming their limited liability company. The name they chose? Poo Poo Butt, LLC.
Why? So they could make business men say it in meetings – because they thought that would be hilarious.
The company no longer exists, but UberFacts tweeted the fact overnight. In true Mark Hoppus fashion, he proudly quote retweeted the fact to confirm.

Back on Monday, a slightly more mature Blink-182 released a third track off of their forthcoming album, ‘Happy Days’. The new track has all that classic Blink anthemic goodness.
Overnight, bassist Mark Hoppus announced he’d be auctioning off guitars, mics, and other Blink-182 stuff for a good cause, including his 2002 Fender Custom Pink Plaid Precision Bass guitar. The funds raised from the auction, including $5k of his own, will go towards The Trevor Project, a charity that works to provide life-saving crisis intervention and mental health services to LGBTQ+ youth.
Listen to ‘Happy Days’ below.
