Scott Raynor (born May 23, 1978) was the original drummer, and founding member of Blink-182 (1992-1998), until he was asked to leave the band in mid-1998. He was eventually replaced by Travis Barker.

He was an avid Metallica fan in his youth. He became a drummer when he joined his first band with some friends because they called all the "good instruments" before Raynor could choose.

When asked about his expulsion from Blink-182 in an interview [ [ Interview with Scott] C-Rogalski] , Scott said the following:
quotation|I think the greatest misconception was that I was fired for drinking. I received a phone call from Mark, Tom, and Rick (manager), one afternoon after a recent tour. They gave me an ultimatum to quit drinking and go into rehab. I didn't think I needed to go to rehab so I asked for the weekend to think about it, they agreed. I went out and got drunk. After that weekend I realized that I had a drinking habit that I needed to break so I told them I would go to rehab but they said they didn't trust me. So I asked if there was anything I could do to stay in the band and they said no. So I was never given a reason. Another misconception is that I am somehow upset or bitter about this. When they said they wouldn't trust me to quit drinking I realized that I was not in the company of friends. And I wouldn't have wanted to be in a band whom [sic] are not my friends. |Scott Raynor| []

After that there were some reports that Raynor was shot dead in 2003, following a dispute with his new band Grimbly. This turned out to be a hoax. He said on his message board that he is alive, but a homeless man from San Diego was apparently killed in incidents linked to the rumour.

Alternative sources claim Raynor's departure from Blink-182 had nothing to do with his drinking habits. A fan web page [ [ Bio] Atomik] claims Scott left the band in pursuit of his college degree. None of the band members have recently spoken about Raynor, hence rumours and hearsay are constantly floating about.

Some suggested the lyrics of the song "Man Overboard" off the live album "The Mark, Tom, and Travis Show (The Enema Strikes Back!)" were directed at Raynor, but Hoppus denied this rumor when he guest presented "Loveline".

On August 14 2006, released an exclusive interview, in which Mark Hoppus answered 20 questions, for which fans had been seeking an answer, since the hiatus of Blink-182. When asked about his thoughts on Scott Raynor, Hoppus said he would prefer not to answer, and that Raynor had discussed the matter of his own will in interviews. Fact|date=August 2007
