Better late than never. Tom DeLonge has finally lent his iconic vocals to the viral “I Miss You” video from last week.

Indie icons, led by Dr. Dog’s Eric Slick, parodied the viral celebrity “Imagine” video with their own version of the blink-182 classic. It was hilarious, but the only thing lacking was a member of blink-182. Now, DeLonge saved the day.

It all started when some celebrities, led by Gal Gadot, tried to cheer us up during this coronavirus quarantine. They were ultimately laughed at and ridiculed. 

 

Then, Eric Slick included Pedro The Lion‘s David Bazan, Mac DeMarco, a late addition by Phoebe Bridgers and many more in a parodied “I Miss You” sing-along song á la Tom DeLonge.  

 

Well now, DeLonge has finally joined in and it couldn’t be sweeter. DeLonge seems to even be hyperbolizing his own sound in the short clip that has him confusedly belting the beginning of his verse. 

More Tom DeLonge/blink-182 

Have you ever wondered what “Mr Brightside” by the Killers would sound like if it were written by blink-182? Of course, you haven’t because that’s such an oddball combination. Well, one musician wondered and because of that curiosity, we have one of the coolest mashups of all time.

SugarpillCovers took Brandon Flowers‘ sweet-as-honey vocals and overlaid some Tom DeLonge-sounding riffs, classic Mark Hoppus bass and Travis Barker drums.

blink-182, rose to fame for their lyrics, coupled with overdriven, yet twinkly riffs, ferocious drums and fun Mark Hoppus moments and basslines. They aren’t ever thrown into the mix with the Killers unless you’re talking about really good bands that consistently pump out great albums.

But what if blink-182 wrote “Mr. Brightside?” Honestly, we think it would be even more entertaining to see what would happen if the Killers wrote “Dumpweed” but we digress.

YouTuber SugarpillCovers put on his thinking cap and showed off his musical talents with the below video. Check it out and imagine a world where these two were a single band.

It’s particularly fun when you imagine DeLonge singing some of the lines. “Now they’re going to bed/And my stomach is sick/And it’s all in my yead.”

Hats off to you for creating this masterpiece. It certainly helps kickstart the imagination during coronavirus quarantine.
