Four Blink-182 Albums Get Limited-Edition Cassettes


If you're in the sweet spot of being a Blink-182 superfan and a cassette tape revivalist, this is your moment. We won't even bother you with our thoughts about the questionable sound quality or durability of the medium.

For a tidy $12 apiece, you can now pre-order 1997's Dude Ranch, '99's Enema of the State, 2003's Blink-182 and the 2000 live album The Mark Tom and Travis Show. They all drop on Dec. 8 and are limited to 2,500 copies apiece, with three cassette designs available for each. (Hat-tip to Modern Vinyl for the news.)

Hit SRC Vinyl to grab the Blink-182 tapes. Each one has a solid (previously published) writeup by Stephen Thomas Erlewine. Buddha, the band's full-length 1994 demo, is already available for $10.
