Blinkin' good

Rock band Blink-182 are the latest artists to get involved in trying to help the victims of Japan's devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Frontman Mark Hoppus has set up an eBay auction site on which he's offering up a number of rare items in an effort to raise funds for the American Red Cross in their efforts toward disaster relief.

Items include the original handwritten lyrics sheet for the group's early hit, The Rock Show, which is already drawing bids in excess of $20,000, used backstage passes, the band's dressing-room sign from the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards and the orange sweater Hoppus wore in the Dammit video.

Just hours after the quake struck, Hoppus tweeted: "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."
