Published Apr 27, 2017When you've spent decades writing super simple nursery rhymes, it's hard to fault you for expanding your reach a little. That's precisely what California mall punks Blink-182 have done with their latest track.
In a statement about the song, they said, "This is the strangest song blink have ever recorded. It's in 6/8 time. It's aggressive and one of our favorites from the deluxe because of it."
Simply called "6/8," the song is certainly strange. While the odd time signature doesn't particularly stand out, the fact that this is a Blink-182 stab at metalcore certainly does. The end result is weird as all hell, yet we can't stop listening.
Listen to the entirely peculiar "6/8" below. The song will appear on the deluxe edition of California, due out on May 19 via BMG.
