simple.at first they wanted to be called Blink,but didn't want to get sued by an Irish band with the SAME name.So they added the 182,which according to wikipedia spanish,the 182 represents the number of times the word "f**k" was said in Scarface.THATS HOW BLINK182 CAME UP WITH THIER NAME
Tom, Mark, and Travis were originally known as just "Blink" until a Japanese band already named Blink threatened to sue if they did not change their band name. Therefore, 182 was added. The three say 182 was the amount of times "f***" was said in Scarface.
Mark and Tom were skateboarding and Tom came up with blink. There was a band with the same name so they had to add the 182. The number has no significance. They just picked a random number and they made up different stories for how they got it. Really, it was just random.
its actually because their name means f**k RB. rancho bernardo highschool. R is the 18th letter of the alphabet and B is the 2nd. they went to poway and one of them went to RB high. and i go there so i know this
They first choose there name to be Blink when Mark and Tom were skateboarding Tom said" how about Blink?" but they were threatened by a Irish band named Blink if they didn't change there name they would sue. So they choose the number 182 because in the movie Scarface they say the "F" word 182 times
