    In todays mainstream music, when you turn on the radio you are bound to hear at least one song about the collapse of a relationship. Do not get me wrong, a majority of these songs I consider my anthems but we have all seen a different inspiration for the music that is hitting the radios today. Blink 182 has always been known for their fun-loving, upbeat music that you would hear at the beginning of a party to set the mood for the night. With the release of “I Miss You”, a new interpretation of the pop rock boy band was discharged. “I Miss You” is a dismal song that creates a connection with listeners who are going through a rough time socially.

As far as sound goes, that’s pretty much the case, the two bands are worlds apart in terms of genre and their respective fan bases. However, what they have in common is something much more fundamental. In 1986 Van Halen had become one of the most popular bands of their generation, but a nasty divorce between lead singer David Lee Roth and the rest of the band left them in a tough…
