Blink 182 - Blink-182 Hold Auction For Japan

Blink-182 singer Mark Hoppus is auctioning off band mementos to raise money for victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

Original handwritten lyrics from the song 'Rock Show' have already had 79 bids and reached $20,300 on internet auction site eBay, with the sale continuing for another six days.

Other items include the orange shirt worn by Mark in the 'Dammit' video - which has reached $2,226 - and a promotional CD of 'What's My Age Again' which is so far at $2,025.

All proceeds from the sales will go to the American Red Cross, which is assisting with aid efforts in the devastated country.

Mark confirmed over the weekend he was left stunned and upset by the earthquake in Japan - which measured 9 on the Richter scale, devastating parts of the east coast of the nation - and planned to hold the auction as soon as possible.

He wrote on his twitter account: "So sad for what's happening in Japan. Gonna dig in the bins & find some old blink-182 items to auction for the Red Cross.

"What would you be most interested in? Promo items? Posters? Books? Stickers? Original lyric sheets? Guitars? (sic)"

The bassist - who is joined in the band by Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker - has since tweeted links to Blink-182 trading cards and smiley-face stickers, and thanked those bidding in the items.

Mark wrote: "Thanks to everyone at @ebay for their help with the auctions. They are going above and beyond. Respect. (sic)"
