Blink-182: Getting kicked out of high school for showing up drunk to a basketball game can yield only disastrous results; unless you're in Blink-182. The group has become one of (if not the most) popular pop punk bands ever, due to their upbeat songs with irreverent lyrics and extremely energetic tour dates. In a career that's spanned almost twenty years, Blink-182 has managed to shock and excite rock and punk fans of all ages with their albums and concert dates. Despite a semi-absence for the past few years, Blink-182 is back with a new lineup.

Blink-182 (which was Blink at this early date) was started in San Diego, CA in 1992 by Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Scott Raynor, who all went to Poway High School together. Blink-182's third demo, Buddha, helped them score a show at SOMA, one of San Diego's only all-ages venues. Their humorous concert dates gained them a small following and their first full-length album, Cheshire Cat, in 1994. The band's first big break came with the release of their second album, Dude Ranch, in 1997. The album's single "Dammit" became a huge success and prompted the band to head out on multiple tour dates in '97 and '98. It was during one of these US concert dates that drummer Scott Raynor was asked to leave the band. Hoppus and DeLonge asked The Aquabats drummer Travis Barker to fill in and he was soon hired full-time.

Immediately after welcoming Barker to the band, Blink-182 set to work on their third album, which would launch them all into stardom: Enema of the State. The album featured hit singles "What's My Age Again?", "All the Small Things", and "Adam's Song". The record was followed up in 2001 with Take Off Your Pants and Jacket, the success of which proved that Blink-182 was here to stay. Hit singles included "The Rock Show" and "First Date" with the album eventually going double platinum in the US. Due to DeLonge's back problems, the band took a short break, but regrouped in late 2002 and began working on their self-titled fifth album.

Critics and fans alike praised the newest album as an evolution of the band's sound and a maturing of the band. However, behind the scenes tensions were running high as DeLonge expressed interest in canceling the album's promotional concert dates. After a heated discussion, the concert tour was canceled and the band went on hiatus, which soon led to DeLonge leaving the band permanently. It wasn't until Travis Barker was nearly killed in a plane crash in 2008 that the three bandmates reunited, both as a band and as friends. The announcement of their reunion came at the 2009 Grammy Awards, along with the news that a sixth Blink-182 album was to be released in the summer of 2011.

However, Tom DeLonge's commitment to reigniting the band was short lived, and Hoppus and Barker decided to move on without him. DeLonge was replaced in 2015 by Alkaline Trio guitarist Matt Skiba. Skiba's first album with the band, California, is their first record in five years.

Good Charlotte: With three platinum albums and insanely popular tour dates, Good Charlotte has become one of the most influential pop punk bands of the past ten years. Good Charlotte first broke on to the scene with their single "Little Things" and have gone on to perform with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Yellowcard, and Forever the Sickest Kids. After years of experimenting with their upbeat, pop punk style, Good Charlotte recently returned to their roots with 2010's Cardiology, which has come as a welcomed comeback to their fans. Those excited about the group's return to form are ecstatic over their ongoing tour dates in 2011, which will be wrapping up in Europe this August.

Though they started out with little musical ability, identical twins Benji and Joel Madden decided to form a band in 1995 after attending a Beastie Boys tour date. After filling Good Charlotte with childhood friends, the band released their self-titled debut in 2000, which was supported by their first hit single, "Little Things." They hit it big in 2002 with the release of The Young and the Hopeless, which has gone triple platinum and featured the popular singles "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" and "The Anthem." Good Charlotte's experimentation with alternative styles on their next two albums would scare off some of their fans, but returned to their hit sound with 2010's Cardiology.

Good Charlotte is celebrating their return to fame with many tour dates in 2011, which are concluding in Europe this August. Still to come are shows at the Big Day Out Festival, the Open Air Festival, and Pukkelpop. With Good Charlotte at the best they've been in years, fans should take this opportunity to catch their few remaining tour dates in 2011.
