Mark Hoppus Q&A on Twitter (November 27, 2019)
The flight I was on got diverted due to weather and I had to hire a car to drive me to where I’m going so I have time to answer any questions you may have or give you life advice of varying quality.
Favorite song off of untitled?
Depends on the day. Today? I Miss You.
Any plans for a South America tour Esther with blink or Simple Creatures?
If SC got an offer for a SA tour we’d be there in a minute. Harder for blink to tour there.
Can you guys play songs from Neighborhoods? 😤
Yes we can. And we have. We may again at some point.
Fav song from California?
Is blink-182 releasing a Christmas song or a Christmas EP? 🎄
Is it a cover or original song
What was your favorite music video to shoot?
Rock Show or Always
What artists have you worked with on your upcoming collaboration EP? Pharrell, Uzi, Juice WRLD, Lil Aaron? Anybody else?
At my concert in West Palm, did you or did you not say the lyrics: please tell mom this is ALL her fault?
I did. Sometimes I throw it in there to see if people are paying attention.
My son is learning guitar. Any tips you have to get him more into it? He mostly plays at church and shows little interest in the music I play but I know I can get him to rock. Any easy songs to learn?
Dammit. (Clean version)
Hardest blink song to play live and sing at the same time?
I really wish I hated you.
My daughter wants to know who came up with the blink bunny and why’s it a bunny
Scott did a drawing of a rabbit with a pocket watch. That’s where it started.
Did you guys write the melody/lyrics for Robert smith in all of this - or did he come up with it?
That was all him. We sent him the track and he sent it back with his verses all done.
When will the chainsmokers collab be released?!
What has been the hardest moment for you as a musician? Also can I get in on this too? 😭
After blink broke up in 2005 I felt like I’d lost a huge part of myself.
Which song/album took the longest time to make and why?
(Your songs are, by the way, fantastic and gives me so much new energy. i have listened to NINE ever day since it was released so good and it helps me on long and hard days) ❤
The untitled record took nearly a year to make. On NINE, I really wish I hated you took the longest to write and was the most work.
What does the phrase "the past is only the future with the lights on" mean to you?
What is past is prologue.
Would you ever consider a TOYPAJ show/tour similar to the Enema tour/the Untitled shows?
Is TOYPAJ good enough?
