The same date when the Communist Party of Spain was started in 1921. The same date that Travis Barker and Joseph "Rev Run" Simmons tumbled from their mother's insides and thought, "WASSSSSSSSSUP, PLANET EARTH!"

now that we've all had our laughs here, you know Travis Barker wasn't Blink 182's original drummer right? he was, however, in the Aquabats previously...but still not even a founding member of that band.
