Consisting of demos, Blink-182's first album, Buddha, may be a little generic, but it's nevertheless a solid skatepunk record that illustrates the group's flair for speedy, catchy hooks and irreverent humor.


Buddha is the third and final demo by the American rock band Blink-182. Recorded and released in January 1994 under the name Blink, it was the band's first recording to be sold and distributed. Blink-182 was formed in Poway, California, a suburb outside of San Diego, in August 1992. Guitarist Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus were introduced to one another by Hoppus' sister. The duo recruited drummer Scott Raynor and began to practice together in his bedroom, spending hours together writing music, attending punk shows and movies and playing practical jokes. The band had recorded two previous demos in Raynor's bedroom — Flyswatter and Demo No.2 — using a four track recorder.



Many of the tracks on Buddha appear on Cheshire Cat (their first album), and a few even came from the Flyswatter demo (which makes Buddha look like Enema by comparison in terms of production). Some of the songs are truly great - "Carousel" is widely regarded as their best song ever - and show that even when they were 18 years old, blink knew how to rock. The best songs are "Carousel", "Girl Next Door", and "21 Days" ("Girl Next Door" is actually a cover of a Screeching Weasels song).


Blink 182 - Carousel

Out of all the amazing intros blink has done, I still think this one is the best.
