Remembering How You Felt: Music’s Timeless Ability to Capture the Past, and Influence the Future // By Derek Shelton of THIS IS YOUR LIFE

 Somewhere down the winding road of this fucked up journey that is life, we are exposed to forces that will change our lives forever. We are influenced, consciously and subconsciously, to incarnate the person that we have become today. We are collections of experiences, breathing collaborations of the variant influences that shape our lives. We can take them all in, but we can never truly let them go. Like millions of others, musical experiences have shaped who I am today with an alarming resonance. Once a new song wisps into your eardrum for the first time, love it or loathe it, you will never be exactly the same again. This is that simple story, a story unique as it is trite; a glimpse of the past, a splash of the present.

 

Today marks the release of “pop-punk” juggernauts Blink 182’s sixth studio record, ‘Neighborhoods,’ an astoundingly mature release that has kept my record player humming over and over all morning. This is a record I never dreamt I would like, a record that shouldn’t even have existed given the history of the band, but this is a record that is digging its roots deeper and deeper with every spin. Perhaps it is the impending change of seasons, the light rain drizzling outside my window, or the sense of uncertainty that laces my conscious spiral into adulthood, but this record is striking all the right chords at this moment of my life. While significantly produced, I feel like everything works together well, and I enjoy the diversity of the songwriting. The lyrics are hard-hitting, well-developed, and surprisingly dark and poignant, a definitive departure from the band’s releases a decade ago. I love this album because it feels like how I feel now; it incorporates a maturity that I feel in my own life, and that I seek in music that I connect with today. This record is a compilation of fourteen heartfelt songs that reflect the personal struggles the trio have overcome since their nosedive into superstardom, a record of pain, reflection, and forgiveness, of respecting the past and embracing their future.

 

Let’s backtrack a little over a decade, from a computer chair in a crowded city apartment to a suburban middle-school classroom, to visit my past self. In 1999, Blink’s ‘Enema of the State’ tore the world, and Cave Spring Junior High School apart. This seminal record would rocket a four-chord California pop-punk band into one of the biggest acts in the world, filling colossal arenas across the globe, and holding a tight grip to the fm airwaves. One fateful afternoon in Tech-Ed class, I stole this record from my best friend Shea Coffey, and I never gave it back. I was immediately hooked, and it changed my life.  Sure, it was a complete dick move, but I can’t say I regret it. As huge as a mainstream success as Blink became, they were still my band, a band that my gangly, awkward, girl-crazy middle-school self could more than identify with. We were the ‘loserkids,’ the ones out of place, seeking acceptance, desperate for something to grasp onto. I love this album because it feels like I felt then, and it will always remind me of how incredibly arduous yet fun it is to grow up. This is a collection of mostly immature songs about growing up, finding solace with your friends, and being terrified of the future; but that’s who I was, and surely a part of why I loved it so. It’s funny; in a lot of ways so little has changed from now and then.

 

I feel lucky to have been able to connect with a progressing band multiple times down my own path in life. I love that one of the bands that got me into punk is still prevalent in my adult life, and that I can embrace who they are today just like I did almost a decade ago. Blink is an easy band for a punk-purist to criticize, and an easy band to slap a bullshit “sell-out” stamp onto if you have been ‘in the pit’ for the last twenty years. Without wasting keystrokes debating subjective preferences, I am stoked that they are writing the music that they want to write, and being the band that they want to be. Produced or not, pop-punk or stadium rock, I love what they are doing, and am grateful they are once again active. Music shouldn’t be about whom else likes it, it should be about what you like and identify with. Maybe you just had to be there, struggling to survive middle-school, or here, trying to piece together your oncoming adult life…I’m just grateful to have the music and the memories.
