+44 to play Blink 182 songs again

They admit they love their former band's songs

+44 have admitted that they are going to play songs by Blink-182 again.

The band, which features former Blink-182 members Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus, have said that despite saying they would never play songs by their former band they have had a rethink.

Posting on their Myspace blog Hoppus said: “For the past year-and-a-half we have been saying how +44 will never play Blink-182 songs. In interviews, when people ask about it, we say it won’t happen, we think it’s lame, etc.

“Last week we changed our minds. And tonight (May 16) we played ’What’s My Age Again’. You see, Travis and I LOVE our history with Blink-182, and it seems a shame to let those songs sit dormant forever because of what happened two years ago.

“And that song is SO much fun to play. So why not? It was awesome to play. So why not? It was awesome to play that song live again. We’re having the time of our lives out here. See you at the shows.”
