Some Blink-182 Albums Are Being Re-Released on Cassette. Gawd.

The silliness of the cassette revival continues with Blink-182 decided to play along through the re-release of four of their biggest albums: Dude Ranch, Enema of the State, The Mark, Tom and Travis Show and Untitled. About $12 USD each.

Why? Certainly not because anyone has been clamouring for cassette versions of these albums. They’re designed as collector’s items, tchotchkes that will never be played but gather dust on a shelf somewhere as their owners hope and pray that they increased in value over time.

Here’s what you can order–if you must. (Via Modern Vinyl)
