Blink-182 Named Most Animal-Friendly Band

ABC/Paula LoboWhen it comes to the treatment of animals, Blink-182 pays attention to all the small things. The pop-punk trio has been named the Most Animal-Friendly band by peta2, PETA's youth division.

Each year, peta2 honors celebrities who support animal rights with the annual Libby Awards -- "Libby" is short for "liberation," as in animal liberation. Other winners of the 2016 Libby Awards include AFI frontman Davey Havok for Hero of the Year for Animals and pop star Miley Cyrus for Best Voice for Animals.

"Today's hottest stars don't hesitate to take time out from judging a hit television show or dropping a highly anticipated album in order to speak up for animals," says peta2 Senior Director Marta Holmberg. "peta2 is recognizing Miley Cyrus, Davey Havok, blink-182 and other celebrities who are encouraging fans to eat vegan, shop cruelty-free, and more."

All three members of Blink-182 are either vegan or vegetarian. Havok also is a vegan, and he starred in an anti-leather campaign for PETA earlier this year.
