Closing with a Song: Adam's Song - Blink 182

There was no way getting around doing Blink-182’s “Adam’s Song” this week. Every bit and piece of it was leading to this. Mark Hoppus was in Bleeding Audio. Female director. The Decline of Western Civilization was about punk music. My only hesitation is the song being kind of a bummer, but in turn that led to a really meaty discussion with plenty to discuss.

Joining me again is Bleeding Audio director, Chelsea Christer. We had PLENTY to go over here talking about the stylistic choices and direction of the video as well as Columbine and her own experience of life during that time being from Colorado. At the end of the day, I was glad I made this choice.

Due to copyright and fair use laws as well as Apple and Spotify sweeps for such things, I’m not going to roll the dice and be including a clip of the song in the episode. However, you can watch the entire video before listening right here.

The Brandon Peters Show will return Monday (12/7) with Secondhand Lions with guest Molly Farnsley, creator of Everpresent.
