Blink-182 gets straight to the point in their latest release, “Generational Divide,” which clocks in at exactly 50 seconds long.
The tune, released on Friday (June 21) also comes with a video of the band playing in a concert poster-covered room. “Is it better, is it better now?/Are we better now, are we better now?” Mark Hoppus sings against the exploding drums and guitars. “All we needed was needed was a life line/We swore we’d be better than the last time/Donate, tell me that you’re alright/I’m not the generational divide,” Matt Skiba mirrors.
“Generational Divide” is the latest of the band’s short songs. In 2017, they released the 35-second “Can’t Get You More Pregnant,” and a year earlier both “Built This Pool” and “Brohemian Rhapsody” from their 2016 Grammy-nominated album California were less than 30 seconds long.
