    Mark Hoppus' Friday Pick: Handsome Furs

    At SPIN.com, we get pitches from aspiring writers all the time, but one we received last fall was quite different. It came from Blink-182's Mark Hoppus, who said he was dying to write a column about his favorite new bands for us - so we hired him! For four months, the bassist-producer-social media maven contributed a weekly piece called Hopp on Pop, profiling acts like Japandroids, Mumford & Sons, Uffie, and dozens more. But that was just the beginning. Starting this week, Mark is taking his tastemaking talents to the Fuse network with his new show, A Different Spin, which airs at 7 P.M. EST and finds Hoppus talking about all things music with co-host Amy Schumer.
