Re: why there are so many travis barker haters???
I officially don't hate TB. I officially do not like Blink 182, and I hate to think that there's people out there that think they're punk rock. The Minutemen, Minor Threat, the Dead Milkmen, The Stooges, Television, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, Devo, Cramps, The Clash, & the Ramones and all the other greats that you'd never or rarely hear on the radio. Those are bands that I think of when I think of punk rock. No one debates whether TB can play. He keeps good time, is a very effective showman but for me that's a moot point because I'd never buy a Blink album. In my mind Travis Barker is this generation's Tommy Lee.
