Boxing Day Tab
This is a pretty accurate tab of Boxing Day, the brand new 2012 song by blink-182. The 
intro is only preliminary as I need to work it out a bit better. Timings are difficult to 
tab but easy to play so if you need help with timings you can find my cover here

Have fun!

About the artist behind Boxing Day Tab:

Blink-182 was an American trio that played pop punk[1][2][3] music. The band originally formed in 1992 in Poway, California[4] (a northern suburb of San Diego) by Tom DeLonge (vocals and guitar) and Mark Hoppus (vocals and bass), who quickly recruited Scott Raynor (drums)[5]. Originally, the band's official name was "Blink", but "182" was appended early in their career following an objection from an Irish band with the same name. In 1998, midway through a U.S. tour, Drummer Travis Barker, who was touring with The Aquabats on the same tour with Blink-182, later played the set because Scott Raynor had to leave for the day. After the set, Mark Hoppus and Tom Delonge sat down and talked about Travis Barker joining the band. The next day he became a member of the band and replaced Raynor permanently. DeLonge left the group in early 2005, with the band portraying it as an "indefinite hiatus". DeLonge went on to play alternative rock in a band called Angels & Airwaves, while Hoppus and Barker continued in a similar genre with their band +44.

Blink-182 were known for their catchy, simple melodies, teen angst and lyrical toilet humor. They have sold almost 22 million records worldwide and have gained a strong cult following since their establishment during the mid-90's and especially during the start of their "indefinite hiatus". Songwriters Hoppus and DeLonge cite punk rock bands such as NOFX, The Cure, Dinosaur Jr., The Descendents and Screeching Weasel[6] as their early influences, although the band's songwriting and production were driven by a pop sensibility. The band was primarily known for popular hits such as "All the Small Things", "Adam's Song", "What's My Age Again", "First Date", "The Rock Show", "Dammit", "Feeling This", "I Miss You" and "Stay Together for the Kids".
