This weekend saw KROQ host their annual Halloween Costume Ball in Los Angeles. The shebang was headlined by our spooky overlords blink-182.
The band rocked up dressed head to toe in Joaquin Phoenix’s interpretation of The Joker. Honestly, Mark Hoppus makes a pretty convincing supervillain.
Blink made their way through a thrilling set of fan-favourites. They also managed to slip in a sneaky Misfits cover, delivering their take on the spine-chilling classic ‘Skulls.’ You can watch their performance below.

The band recently delved into the controversy that shrouded their tour with rapper Lil Wayne.
If you need a refresher, back in July, two weeks into their co-headliner tour, Lil Wayne stormed off the stage during a show in Virginia. Stating that he wasn’t feeling the crowd, and that the show was “probably” going to be his last on the tour.
Thankfully, Weezy went back on his word, and remained on the tour — save a few dates as a result of illness or legal complications.
“Yesterday was krazy!” Wayne shared at the time. “But I want all my fans to know I won’t be quitting this tour! I’m having too much fun with my bros blink-182. Bangor, ME See you tomorrow!”
Now, in a new interview with KROQ, blink detailed the experience of touring with Lil Wayne.

When asked, “How much of a nightmare was Lil Wayne?” the band leapt to his defence.
“He was awesome,” Mark Hoppus replies. “He was awesome, his band was amazing, his whole crew, everybody. It was so fun all summer long.”
The trio continued to explain that there was always a reason for Wayne not being able to show up.
“The one day where he walked off stage, he had said, ‘I just felt like they didn’t like me,’ so he walked off stage,” Barker shared. “‘I didn’t want to put them through it. I just wanted you guys to be able to get on and do your thing.’”
Wholesome and heartwarming. Love you forever Weezy.
