Box Car Racer was an American punk band formed in San Diego, California, in 2001.
The group consisted of guitarist and vocalist Tom DeLonge and drummer Travis Barker, both of Blink-182 alongside guitarist David Kennedy of Hazen Street. Anthony Celestino later joined the band as a bassist. DeLonge created the project to pursue darker ideas he felt unsuited to his work with Blink-182.
