Generational Divide

  • This, er, blink-and-you-might-miss-it song runs just 49 seconds. Matt Skiba takes the vocal lead on the frantic punk ripper, while Mark Hoppus repeats the line, "Is it better, is it better now? Are we better, are we better now?" His diss is directed at people who criticized their previous single, "Blame It on My Youth," for being too poppy.
  • The band gave the song its live debut on June 20, 2019, during a secret show for fans at USC's Galen Center in Los Angeles.
  • The song is not blink-182's shortest. Two tracks on their California album are even briefer; "Brohemian Rhapsody" runs for 30 seconds and "Built This Pool" is a mere 16 seconds long. By comparison, 2017's "Can't Get You More Pregnant" is of epic length; it takes up a whole 35 seconds of your listening time.
