So that's why Untitled shows are not on the weekend.

Interesting. I would think that the majority of BlizzCon attendees would be all like "Fuck Blink-182"

This was the convention where Tenacious D played a few years back right?

This is about what I'd expect from a typical BlizzCon goer.

OK, sorry but let's correct this: Bad Religion is a punk rock legend. Black Flag would be a punk rock legend. The Dead Kennedys would be a punk rock legend. If members of the Ramones came back to life and showed up at Blizzcon, that would be a punk rock legend and a miracle. Blink 182 is a pop punk band - they are not a legend. Flame me all you want, I actually think they sound OK, but unless you were around when punk was born, you are not a legend... yet.

BlizzCon is Blizzard Entertainment. They made monumental gaming classics such as Starcraft, Warcraft, World of Warcraft and Diablo. Its their gaming convention. I'm a massive fan of blizzard games, as they are some of the most intellectually stimulating and addicting games I've ever played, and I've only heard wonderful things about BlizzCon.

With that being said, many people at BlizzCon will be happy about Blink 182 performing.

And on another note, who gives a shit if they are called legends? You seem to be offended by some random author's language in promoting an artist AT THEIR CONVENTION that is VERY well known. If its going to ruin your day that this guy called them legends, you really got to get it together, dude.
