"It doesn't matter if you're good at anything, just try your best. Then there's the idea that individually they're flawed but together they can do amazing things.

"We were massive underdogs at the beginning of the competition and I'll put my hands up say and I didn't think we were going to go all the way. But, as you can see, we are never beaten.

But the people who listened to Blink knew that we were silly and whatever, but we wrote songs about divorce and suicide and depression. Those kids that were listening to Blink are now the ones that control all these outlets that used to just write us off." - Mark Hoppus
