Another girl, another planet

The Only Ones are an English rock and roll band. They were initially active in the late 1970s and were associated with punk rock, yet straddled the musical territory in between punk, power pop and hard rock, with noticeable influences from psychedelia. The band reformed in 2007 after the band's biggest hit "Another Girl Another Planet" was used in a Vodafone ad campaign in 2006, and the same song was used as the intro theme to irish DJ Dave Fanning's radio show They completed a small UK tour in June 2007, and more dates were played in 2008 and 2009. A collection of new material was recorded in 2009 and the songs were given an airing at a concert in London in December that year.

Blink-182 is an American pop punk band from California, formed in 1992.The band formed as "Blink" with vocalist and guitarist Tom DeLonge, vocalist and bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Scott Raynor. In 1998, midway through a U.S. tour, current drummer Travis Barker replaced Scott Raynor.
After releasing debut album Cheshire Cat (1994), the band achieved moderate success with Dude Ranch(1997), now having sold over a million copies. However, the trio achieved even greater success with the multi-platinum selling Enema of the State(1999). Their following two albums maintained their popularity; Take off your Pants and Jacket (2001) and Blink 182 (2003) before DeLonge left the group in early 2005, initiating an indefinite hiatus. DeLonge went on to form Angels&Airwaves, while Hoppus and Barker continued playing music together in +44. After some tragic events involving the band and its entourage, Blink-182 reunited in February 2009 and a new album is in the works.
Blink-182 has sold over 25 million albums worldwide.
