So me and HostileBelief have been chatting in a PM together, both discussing one of our favorite bands, Blink-182 and their musical talent. We decided it would be fun to do a debate oriented around them, and their bands.This debate specifically centers around their side projects from blink-182, during their few hiatuses throughout the years.
