We all know that vinyl has made a heck of a comeback in recent years, but HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT CASSETTES?

More specifically, have you heard about Blink 182 cassettes? In case you haven’t, Vulture reported that SRC Vinyl is re-releasing some of Blink 182’s beloved pop-punk albums on tape including Dude RanchEnema of the StateThe Mark, Tom and Travis Show; and their self-titled 2003 work.

The cassettes will be available in various colors for $11.99 on Dec. 8. Only limited quantities will be available, so probably go ahead and buy a used Sony Walkman to prepare.

 

I first heard Blink 182 around the same time I got my first (and only) detention in 7th grade. I remember sitting on a bench outside my middle school waiting on my mom to come get me since I’d had to stay late. Wearing my first pair of straight-leg jeans and a pair of hot pink Converse, I felt completely rebellious as I listened to “What’s My Age Again?” on my brand new mp3 player. I can only imagine how the experience would have been better if I’d had an (even then kind of vintage) cassette player to hear Delonge’s angst-ridden voice.

Although the band has been fractured of late, with members committed to other projects and some reported squabbling between the group, we’ll always remember the good times.
