For our Sidetrack this week we dive into Box Car Racer, the shortly lived side project of Blink 182's Tom Delonge. During recording sessions of Blink's second studio album, "Take Off Your Pants And Jacket", Delonge began experimenting with different guitar stylings with an acoustic in hand. Coupled with an increasingly grim day-to-day life while recovering from a back injury, Delonge also began writing songs with darker and darker lyrics. With the help of Travis Barker behind the kit, Box Car Racer gave Delonge an outlet to express the darker side of his songwriting.
