Blink 182 Albums
Blink-182 albums are often filled with bathroom humor and tongue-in-cheek lyrics. However, when listening to their albums in chronological order, the way the band matures both musically and personally is quite apparent.
- "Dude Ranch" In 1997, the trio released "Dude Ranch" and promoted the album with "Dammit," the lead single. After the successful promotion of the album, Blink-182 was thrown into the mainstream music industry and "Dude Ranch" was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
- "Enema of the State" After being launched into the public eye after releasing "Dude Ranch," Blink-182 created "Enema of the State," and released it in 1999. It was an album that touched on topics such as health care, politicians, and even aliens combined with a teenage sense of hilarity.
- "The Mark, Tom, & Travis Show (The Enema Strikes Back)" Blink-182 released "The Mark, Tom, & Travis Show" featuring live performances of some of their most popular songs. Songs included "What's My Age Again," "Adam's Song," and "All The Small Things." Even though it's filled with comical sexual references, the album still proves their musical ability is a punk force to be reckoned with.
- "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket" With a title such as this, the album was almost guaranteed to be interesting. Blink-182 showcases their more mature writing ability and fill the albums with catchy hooks. The album is easy-on-the-ears and after selling more than 350,000 copies within the first week, it's no wonder it was the band's second best selling album.
- "Blink-182" The trio all became father's before the release of their self-titled album. It features an obviously more mature tone with more experimental styles of music. It's evident that the band experienced life changes before writing the songs for "Blink-182." If you're unsure about a more mature sounding Blink-182, rest assured that there are plenty of fast, hyphy, up-beat tunes to life your spirits.
