If Mark and Tom from Blink-182 were married, Travis would be their child. When Blink-182 broke up Tom started the band Boxcar Racer with Travis. That didn’t last long, Mark Hoppus wanted custody of Travis, eventually Mark won and now is in the band +44 with Travis.
Ok so that story is a little far fetched. A lot of people are wondering if Mark and Tom are fighting, or had a fight and that is why Blink-182 ended.
Those Are All Lies!
Mark and Tom did not get in a fight, so why did they decide to break up the band? Well it is a little complicated. While on tour Tom was tired and burned out, he wanted to go home and be with his family so they canceled the tour. Tom then got to spend six months at home with his family in San Diego. They intended on recording again but Tom did not want to leave his family so he refused to record outside of his home in San Diego. This complicated things led to heated conversation but they eventually worked things out. Tom was the first say he was not a member of Blink-182. After a decade of being a band it came to a crashing halt. Tom changed his phone number so that Mark and Travis would stop calling him trying to convince him to change his mind.
So They Did Fight
In an interview with Mark he never said he disliked or was angry at Tom for leaving the band, he never even said they fought. The only thing he did say about it was they had “heated conversation” But that heated conversation did not take place until after Tom decided to leave, of course Mark would be upset about that. Their fight was not the reason Tom left, they bought because Tom left. That is a totally different situation.

Blink Will Never Get Back Together
Some fans still believe Blink-182 will get back together, I am here to tell you that they won’t. They made great music for more than a decade what more could you want? There is only so many cds a band can come out with before they turn into U2 who has been making music since the late 70’s early 80’s (seriously, are they guys EVER going to quit?) Blink had a lot of great decade I am glad they stopped while they were still going strong, all bands have to stop eventually right? If they don’t they become over done.
