Watch Mark Hoppus Play blink-182’s Dammit In The Last Of Us Part II

The Last Of Us’ Ellie performs blink-182’s pop-punk classic Dammit – with a little help from Mark Hoppus…

After Metallica (sort of) starred in The Last Of Us Part II last month when Ellie covered Nothing Else Matters via Twitch streamer KnotsWithFoxy, now blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus is bringing his own band’s music to the videogame by performing Dammit.

As is in keeping with the game, the musician works out an acoustic rendition – played by Ellie – of the track as he goes (as captured on Twitch), giving the Dude Ranch single an entirely new feel from its anthemic, pop-punk original.

Clearly, Mark is a tiiiiiny bit out of practice, however, as he amusingly forgets the lyrics after the opening lines: ‘It’s alright to tell me what you think about me / I won’t try to argue or hold it against you / I know that you’re leaving, you must have your reasons…

Wait, how do the lyrics go?” he laughs. “What’s the next line?! Oh yeah, that’s right: ‘The season is calling, your pictures are falling down.’”

Is the leading member of a supergroup that has created hit after hit since 1992. Forgets lyrics to his most played song,” joked one comment, while another viewer wrote, “Mark: what’s the next line? Me, screaming at the screen: THE SE4SoN IS CALLiNG!!!”

As well as gaming and streaming on Twitch, Mark has been working on new music in lockdown, with bandmate Travis Barker recently revealing that a blink-182 song called Quarantine is coming.

All Time Low frontman Alex Gaskarth also hinted at a new Simple Creatures release back in April, teasing: “We’re already working on potential quarantine music while we’re all on lockdown. [Mark]’s in Idaho – he escaped while he still could – and I’m stuck home in Maryland, so we won’t be doing it in person but we’re sending ideas back and forth and we’re always talking about what the next steps are for Simple Creatures. It’s in the works.”
