Rabbit Hole: Used to refer to a bizarre, confusing, or nonsensical situation or environment, typically one from which it is difficult to extricate oneself; an allusion to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. To go “down the rabbit hole” is to enter a period of chaos or confusion.
After a long goodbye with founding member Tom DeLonge and the addition of Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba, Blink 182 is quickly approaching the release of California, the pop-punk band’s first album in five years.
On Wednesday, Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker joined Zane Lowe on the Apple Music Beats 1 radio show to premiere the speedy “Rabbit Hole” on the heels of previous releases “Bored to Death” and “Built This Pool”.
“I won’t fall down that fucking rabbit hole/ I’m barely standing on the ground/ All the hints that you leave are too hard to believe at all/ I won’t fall down that fucking rabbit hole with you, with you, with you, with you again!” Mark Hoppus and Matt Skiba adamantly sing over fast and commanding guitar riffs.
