The US & England Are Divided on How to Pronounce Blink-182 & Twitter Is Feuding

In the United States, Blink-182 is pronounced "Blink One Eighty Two," but a wave of confusion crashed over the Internet on Tuesday (Nov. 20) when The Late Late Show with James Corden's co-head writer Ian Karmel started a Twitter forum with the band's Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge.

"The British call Blink-182 'Blink One Eight Two' and I'm not saying that's WHY they lost the Revolutionary War, but..." Karmel instigated. Corden himself even weighed in, nothing that both countries are wrong, since "they technically should be called Blink One Hundred and eighty two."   

The rest of the Twittersphere quickly gave their two cents. See some of the international debate below.
