DS Interview: Josiah Hughes (Blink-155 Podcast)

Two Canadian sellouts started a podcast in which they discuss every single blink-182 song. They titled it Blink-155, named after the amount of songs the band had at the podcast’s inception. Two years in, Exclaim! journalist Josiah Hughes (also of Pre Nup) and major label shill Sam Sutherland (also of Junior Battles) are well past 100 episodes and make over $1,300 a month in Patreon support.

To get to the bottom of this senseless endeavor, I interrupted Hughes mid-settling in to his new Montreal apartment to talk about if Dude Ranch is a dirty joke, being friends with the singer of Imagine Dragons, and why he started a blink-182 podcast. You can read our discussion below.



Blink-155 Releases “Free Punk Lyrics” Compilation (not for free)

Blink-155, a podcast run by members of Junior Battles and Pre Nup, has released a 39-song compilation of artists using lyrics from a Tumblr page called Free Punk Lyrics.

As explained on Bandcamp:

“‘Free punk lyrics’ was a joke Tumblr started by Alex and Josiah in 2011 where they would write absurd punk lyrics in four minutes or less. The lyrics were posted online under the pretense that upcoming punk bands could use them for free. It’s all right there in the name. 

In 2018, listeners of the Blink-155 podcast started making real songs out of the lyrics posted on Tumblr. 39 tracks later, the Free Punk Lyrics Compilation is here.”

The album is available on Bandcamp and can be streamed below.
