Blinded by Barker? PuppetMasterIX
Let's get one thing out of the way: This song is hard. It is indubitably the most difficult Blink-182 song in the entirety of Rock Band Drums. However, it is also one of the least technical, making this a bit hard to recommend.

The main beat is absurdly fast, and in structure resembles something you would expect from a thrash metal song (complete with ridiculously quick double kicks). Picture a very slightly slower Blinded by Fear with the bass variation of songs like Blackened, and you have what is essentially what the beat is like; not a pretty visual, ain't it? The main beat is the one reason why this chart is so hard to grasp or enjoy. If there was an upside to this, it would be that they don't last for such a long, continuous amount of time as Blinded by Fear's beats (though the fatigue is still exacerbated by the ridiculously fast double kicks).

Despite that madness, you do get some moderately lengthy breaks from the action, and they also allude to the groove that Blink-182 songs typically go by (tom patterns, variable punk beats, etc.). However, they aren't necessarily as unique here as they are in some of the band's other songs, so while they are certainly more fun to play than the murderous verses, they aren't necessarily a decent selling point.

Overall, drummers might want to stay away from this song. I wouldn't fully consider it a completely asinine chart to play, as the parts that aren't painful are rather still fun to play, but the "Blinded by Fear on punk-roids" vibe emitted by the song's main parts is almost guaranteed to turn most drummers off.
