BLINK-182 highlights of 2000...

...performed on 07 September 2000
MTV Video Music Awards
Official VMA Site

Mark Hoppus appears in the new clip by Fenix TX, who are currently touring with BLINK-182 & BAD RELIGION.
Mark is eating cereal and watching T.V. soaps, while being distracted by the song "All My Fault", performed by the band next door to his apartment.
(Fenix TX used to be known as River Fenix, but were forced to change their name by the family of that late actor.)

BLINK-182 appeared on TRL Superstar LIVE show.
Live performance taped on the Boardwalk in
San Diego
(Mission Beach's Belmont Park).
Four-Hour show from Tuesday, 23 May began airing on MTV Saturday, 27 May, to kick off their
SoCal Summer.
BLINK-182 and other local bands from San Diego will appear in the future, as 4 MTV series will be taped here for the next three months.

"Adam's Song" peaked at the number 2 position on Billboard's MODERN ROCK radio singles chart
(chart week ending 27 May 2000).

BLINK-182 Returned triumphantly to their hometown of San Diego, to play a SOLD OUT concert with BAD RELIGION on 11 May

On Friday, 28 April 2000, they played on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." They performed "Aliens Exist", which was a last-minute change. Tom does the vocals on that one, but Mark sings on the current single "Adam's Song," which they didn't do because of his strep throat illness. This was the third time that they played on this show since the release of "Enema of the State." That L.P. is expected to reach the 5 million sales level worldwide by this summer.

"All the Small Things"
peaked at Number 6 on
Billboard's HOT 100 Chart.
(19 February issue)
This was the first Top 10 hit for them on the pop chart...

BLINK 182 have been able to enjoy their success and new-found attention.

The San Diego alt-rock band has helped promote true education to worldwide viewers of MTV and MTV-2, in TWO COOL WAYS. They are naked in every scene of their recent videoclip "What's My Age Again ?", and have made similar appearances in two current clips, their own "All The Small Things", as well as Lit's "Zip-Lock."

shown here: running through "Zip-Lock"

They also say in interviews that they want to promote body acceptance. They are seen streaking through the streets naked, and also playing the song in a studio setting. They also perform naked wherever they can, and have only run into problems in foreign countries so far. On Saturday 29 May, they did this on MTV Live, on the very first day of the "ISLE of MTV", a summer-long stand in the Bahamas. MTV did not censor the nudity in any way, and showed many side and back views of the singer's bare bottom. Carson Daly, the MTV V.J. asked the band a few minutes prior to the performance if they wanted to perform without clothes, and he said that it would be O.K. if they wanted to. They had assumed before that, that they wouldn't be allowed to.

"BLINK 182 are the pride of San Diego"
  • This quote above is from the 21 June 1999 edition of NEWSWEEK Magazine. Here's more of what the article says:
  • "The video for 'What's My Age Again?' features the trio romping about in their birthday suits, covered only by an armada of tattoos."
  • "Now they're headlining the Warped Tour....It will be hard to miss them: they're the ones without any clothes."
