Blink 182 “Down”


The song revolves around longing in a relationship, set to a rain-drenched soundscape. The original version of “Down” ran over six minutes long, and contained a drum and bass breakdown from drummer Travis Barker. Rumors circulated following the song’s release that DeLonge penned the track on experiences with a previous girlfriend.

It is one of the few Blink-182 songs to feature vocal contributions from Travis Barker, who provides the whispered lines before the choruses.
