Blink-182's 'Boxing Day'

Blink-182 have released "Boxing Day," the first cut off their upcoming EP Dogs Eating Dogs, which the band will independently release on December 18th. The tender, mid-tempo acoustic track (which you can hear below) is miles from Blink's goofy and lewd yuletide classic "Happy Holidays, You Bastard," but "Boxing Day" doesn't skimp on catchy hooks and sing-along choruses.

"This EP is a hundred times better than Neighborhoods, because we're all in a room together," drummer Travis Barker told Rolling Stone earlier this month. "The rule is there's no rules. 

Dogs Eating Dogs will be available in three different holiday bundles, which you can pre-order on Blink-182's site now: A "Santa's Lap Package," which will come with a special poster, t-shirt, holiday wrapping paper and card; the "Nice Package," which includes a special fleece, holiday wrapping and card; and the "Naughty Package," which comes with a shirt and card.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
