The band hang out with Bart - well, they can certainly relate to 10-year-olds...

BLINK 182 are to appear in ‘THE SIMPSONS’

Singer Mark Hoppus told US website that the show, which features the likenesses of the group, should be aired in 2003.

He explained the plot: “Bart discovers that he was a former child actor when he was a baby and that Homer spent all the money he made.

“So he becomes legally emancipated and he kind of like hits the road and he runs into something like the Warped tour, but it’s called the Skewed tour. And he hangs out with Blink 182.”

Other bands who have appeared on ‘The Simpsons’ include REM, Smashing Pumpkins, U2 and [a][/a].
