Tom DeLonge (born December 13, 1975 in Poway, California) is an American singer-songwriter who has performed with the bands Blink-182, Box Car Racer, and Angels and Airwaves. DeLonge plays several musical instruments, including guitar, bass, trumpet and piano.
Tom DeLonge wrote a song called "Good Day" for a rapper named Talib Kweli. But Geffen Records told Tom to keep it for his band Angels and Airwaves' album We Don't Need To Whisper. Talib Kweli then sued Tom for "loss of earnings."
I think it's because Tom thought that they were going to be the next coming of Jesus Christ, so to speak. That's where the "Angels" part comes in. Then, since it would be playing on the radio (supposedly); "Airwaves". Airwaves= Radio. That's where it comes from.
Made an album with a band called Boxcar Racer which he fronted, made a supergroup called Angels & Airwaves which has released 3 albums, currently in the making of another, 1 film and also, making another.
Depends which song you're talking about... Blink or AvA. But if you're talking about the song where he sings about his dad cheating on his mom and leaving and all that good stuff.... It's called Rite of Spring and it's by Angels And Airwaves.
