This is a popular "mystery" often perpetuated by fan of the band. Although the band themselves have joked about the number having a meaning, they have said that 182 means nothing.


After the release of Cheshire Cat the band was threatened with legal action from an Irish band that shared their name. Blink added a "182" to there name to avoid problems.

List of SpeculationEdit

  • 182 is the number of times [Al Pacino said] the F word was said in the movie "Scarface".
  • 182 stands for "RB" (R=letter 18, B=letter 2), which stands for rival high school Rancho Bernardo.
