Aliens Exist

Album: Enema Of The State (1999)
  • This is a goofy song by blink-182 where they express their belief in aliens. They like to pretend that things like aliens and unicorns exist... or maybe they really believe it. >>

  • The last line of the song, "Twelve majestic lies," refers to an alleged government conspiracy group called Majesty 12, who supposedly cover up UFO and Alien activity.

    Tom Delonge told Mic in 2016: "The very last line of that song references this urban legend in UFO folklore called Majestic 12; these documents that got leaked in the '80s that described an entire organization of top-level scientists, military people and intelligence officials that manage the information of this phenomenon. I put the name in that song, and the irony now is that I'm dealing with people from the modern version of whatever that group is called. It's a big deal."
  • In 2015, Tom DeLonge claimed during an interview with Paper Mag that he had made contact with aliens and was in danger.

  • Daniel from Winchester, OhioTo this day I still don't believe this is real song.
  • John from Chester, VaOn the Mark, Tom, and Travis Show version of this track, Tom sings "I got an injection of blood from the erection, my best friend thinks I'm just humping guys" rather than "I got an injection of fear from the abduction, my best friend thinks I'm just telling lies."
  • Daniel from Winchester, OhI didn't think this was a real song at first, until I found this Songfact page on it..
  • Jake from Millerton, PaOn their live CD Mark says "Tom has sex with guys" after Tom says "Twelve majestic lies"
  • Jessica from Newport, PaI've listened to this song a million times, blink is my favorite band of all time. Thanks for the "twelve majestic lies" part, I've always wondered what that meant. Like, did he tell that many lies, or what? Thanks for clearing it up.
  • Tim from Utica, NyThis song is pretty kewl
