The Contenders

11 Blink-182 Blink-182 Blink-182 are a Pop Punk band formed in 1992. Original lineup were Mark Hoppus (Bass Guitar, Vocals) more.

I added this, but I don’t know what happened though. But Tom DeLonge is definitely part Native American from his mothers side. And you can even tell just by his facial features, the eye shape, the cheekbones, the lips, width of nose, shape of face. I guess Tom is mixed race. He is mostly European (possibly French, English, and some Spanish) though, with a hint of Amerindian. His mom is Mexican and his father is European. I don’t think Mark and Travis are Amerindian though, at least from what I know of. Mark is Scandinavian with Central European(Finnish, Swedish, German, French) and Travis is Southern European with Central European(Italian, English).

I don’t know if this counts, but I heard Tom DeLonge is part Latino, Mexican to be more specific, don’t know the percentage though. That means he has Native Mexican blood with some Spanish, so I think he counts, since Native American and Native Mexican are the same thing. His mom pretty much looks full blooded Latina, so maybe even half Latino. Not to mention, his features of Native American descent are pretty obvious, his eyes, the cheekbones, the facial bone structure, the lips. Mix that with his French and English European descent and you will get a Mestizo look or Italian look. I don’t know about Mark and Travis, I think they are definitely 100% European for sure.
