Inside AP.net Mark Hoppus recently described the meaning behind the new album title, Blink 182 Neighborhoods, to MTV. It's pretty similar to what he wrote on Google+, but flows a little better.
From the Article"As Blink-182 reformed, we came to realize that, as close as Travis [Barker], Tom [DeLonge] and I are, we are all very different people. With very different tastes. Travis just released a hip-hop album, Tom always talks about U2, Coldplay and the Police, and I listen to obscure indie rock stuff," Hoppus wrote. "We each bring a very different aesthetic, talent and sound to the band. And in the differences between our ideas, the struggle and edge of all the different directions, is where the good things happen when we write together. "So we're each like different neighborhoods in a city. Everybody in the world thinks of something unique unto themselves when they hear the word 'Neighborhoods,' " he continued. "To some it is a big city, others a small town, others suburbia, everything. The world is wide, exciting and very different. That's what Neighborhoods means to me."

Pretty cool name for the album. I hope the artwork kinda interlaces with the concept of the title. Could be really awesome. The song is amazing and I'm pretty sure it's only a fraction of how amazing the album will be

Ten years ago no one would have thought they'd have a title that had a deeper meaning to it.

They shouldn't have to defend or describe the meaning behind it, it should be able to stand on its own.
Kind of a lame album name in my opinion but it's not like it matters - I'm just excited to hear it!

After listening to "Up All Night" 5 or 6 times, it's really starting to grow on me. I didn't hate it at all when I first heard it, but I can't say that I was all that impressed either. I'm actually liking more and more each time I listen to it though. I wouldn't call it one of their best songs, but I think it shows a good progression from their last album, and I have high hopes for
