Who's the better blink-182 singer?

Updated on December 14, 2010

History

Blink-182 consists of three band members. They are: Thomas Matthew "Tom" DeLonge, Jr., lead guitarist and vocalist, Mark Allan Hoppus, bass player and vocalist, and Travis Landon Barker, the drummer.

Today, we will be focusing on Tom and Mark, the two singers. Tom DeLonge was born on December 13, 1975. He is an American vocalist and guitarist for Blink-182, Boxcar Racer, and Angels & Airwaves. Tom received his first instrument, a trumpet on Christmas of 86'. He then got a guitar on his 11th birthday. He formed the band Duck Tape, with Mark Hoppus, born March 15, 1972, in 1992. They recruited drummer Scott Raynor, and renamed the band to Blink.  The band was threatened with legal action by an Irish  pop band of the same name in 1994, and, to avoid a legal dispute, the band appended "182" to the end of their name. In 1998, they fired Raynor due to drinking problems, and they then recruited Travis Barker.

      Having more hits and being featured in more songs doesn't make Tom the better vocalist. In fact, his voice is actually pretty terrible. Mark's voice is better than Tom's by a longshot.

      they're equally talented, and i like that they both do vocals and that they don't just have one singer. it gives them more variety in their albums and it shows that the band is more focused on the instruments and music,as well as the lyrics, than they are about how good the singing sounds. (which if you want amazing voices listen to fake pop or opera or some shit and leave the good punk music for us)
