Barry, 26

Do you remember how you first started listening to Blink?
I was 11. My older brother had a copy of Dude Ranch.

Do you have any specific memories tied to listening to that album?
His friend gave him the CD because he hated it and was like, "Here, take this." He took it home and played it in the bedroom. I was like, "Oh, this is fantastic!"

Is your brother still a fan as well?
Yeah, he's coming now. He's on his way...

Do you think Dude Ranch was your first taste of punk music?
Yeah, definitely.

Listening to it now, do you feel any sort of disconnect in how you relate to it?
Oh, no. Just the opposite. I feel like a lot of people fell off the bandwagon too easily, and I always questioned why because I've always been happy with them.

Would you say you have a favorite song or album of Blink's?
No, I could never do that. Well, maybe favorite album, the self-titled album.
