One fan was quick to point out the similarities between the remix snippet and blink’s track, “Adam’s Song” to which Barker replied:
“Drums very inspired by Adams Song, I wrote those parts”
Yesterday, Barker posted a short video discussing the Lil Peep remix and how he was inspired by the older blink track.
“I still really, really love the original. It just puts you in a mood, you know? You never listen with those ears like, ‘what if I was gonna remix this?’ but you just hear the potential of so many other things it could be.”

“XXX and Peep were two of my favorite artists,” Barker says in a statement about the release. “Both changed music in their own way. Having the opportunity to put my spin on ‘Falling Down’ was truly an honor. From the first time I heard the song I loved it. The true challenge was how could I manage to make it better…I’m really proud of what came out of that.”
