Meaning and history

Blink 182 Logo history
The logo of the band is very straightforward, it consists only of their name “Blink-182”. It was developed after the band received its current name. The thing is that from the outset their name had been «Duck Tape», but quite quickly the band was renamed as “Blink” that better fitted the style of their music. Nevertheless, an Irish band which had the same name, stated that they would force their American counterparts to drop the name in court. To avoid troubles, the San Diego group added the number 182 to its name.

None of the musicians has ever explained the real meaning of that number. They usually say that it was chosen by random. There have been speculations that the number is composed of two parts, 18 and 2, which correspond to the ordinal numbers of the letters “r” and “b” in the English alphabet. These should lead to “Rancho Bernardo”, a community in the northern suburb of San Diego, the place of origin of the band musicians. Another version was suggested by Travis Barker, the drummer of the group, that “182” is the American military radio code meaning “murder”.
