Blink 182 and Green Day mystery
From: Michael Vickers
I wanted to know the meaning behind the names of two
bands. Green Day and Blink-182. I figure that Green Day has to do
with their marijuana days. As for Blink-182, I heard that there was
an Irish band named Blink, and they added the number based on how
many times the f word was said in godfather, but where did the Blink
Buzz was one of the first to send in this answer:
The group Green Day got its name from an early
detractor of the group, a teacher I believe, in the high school they
were in when they started the band. The quote was something like "It
will be a Green Day in Hell before you make any money playing music"
Then we got this email from Alison and silly me
thought that she must have discussed this with Buzz about what they
thought the right answer was then I did notice there was a little
difference... not much but there is one.
I heard that Green Day came from once when they were
talking to someone, perhaps a teacher, about their band and how they
were going to be famous. The teacher replied "It'll be a green day
in Hell the day that you become famous." or something along those
lines. It may just a be a rumor thought, so you may want to check.
And last but not least one of our very own SQA
crew members, Paul came up with this:
There is no meaning behind the numbers in Blink 182,
they just picked random numbers.
