Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge Had Actual UFO Footage After All

The pop-punk icon has been called out by the U.S. Navy for sharing classified intel.

Tom DeLonge is serious about extraterrestrial life. While he continues to make music fronting the band Angels & Airwaves, the former member of Blink-182 has become notorious for his devotion to outer space—specifically, the existence of life on other planets. Now, none less than the U.S. Navy is saying that DeLonge is really onto something.

Three videos published by DeLonge’s To the Stars Academy have officially been classified as “unexplained aerial phenomenon,” Navy spokesman Joseph Gradisher told Vice. The news was first reported by John Greenwald on his site The Black Vault, the largest civilian archive of declassified government documents. He had contacted the Navy about the three videos on DeLonge’s site earlier this year.

“I very much expected that when the U.S. military addressed the videos, they would coincide with language we see on official documents that have now been released, and they would label them as ‘drones’ or ‘balloons,’” Greenwald explained. “However, they did not. They went on the record stating the ‘phenomena’ depicted in those videos, is ‘unidentified.’ That really made me surprised, intrigued, excited, and motivated to push harder for the truth.”

The truth—which in this case comes from the person behind such Blink classics as “What’s My Age Again?” and “All the Small Things”—is really out there.
