"Stay and play that Blink-182 song/ That we beat to death in Tucson" becomes a reality.
The Chainsmokers have become the kind of stars that will define a generation of music tastes. Songs like "Closer" and "Paris" are just too big to ever be truly forgotten, and there are kids who will one day revisit those hits with a warm nostalgia that'll last throughout the decades. The same is true for pop-punk idols Blink-182. Take Off Your Pants and Jacket is a sonic bible for many millennials -- The Chainsmokers included. The dance-pop duo even name-drops the trio in the lyrics of "Closer" ("Stay and play that Blink-182 song/ That we beat to death in Tucson").
Of course, no one is more excited about the fact that The Chainsmokers and Blink-182 just wrote a song together than Alex Pall and Drew Taggart themselves.
"Just did a session with blink182 and wrote an amazing song," the duo tweeted. "We can die happy now."
