Blink 182 "The Rock Show"

"The Rock Show": is a song recorded by American rock band Blink-182 for the group's fourth studio album, Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. It was released as the lead single from the album on June 25, 2001. The track was composed primarily by bassist Mark Hoppus about meeting a girl at a rock concert. It was inspired by the band's early days touring punk rock clubs, mainly in their hometown of San Diego.

The song's creation stems from Blink-182 manager Rick DeVoe's opinion that the album lacked a catchy, "feel-good" song. Hoppus composed "The Rock Show" in response, while guitarist Tom DeLonge composed the album's second single, "First Date".
