We kick off our batch of episodes devoted to our awkward teenage years with a look at a band that sings about boners and dysentery: the one and only Blink-182 and their 1999 record Enema of the State. And while the juvenile lyrics, addictive melodies and fast-tempos certainly appealed to a younger crowd, it was perhaps their music videos that catapulted Mark, Tom, and Travis into the mainstream stratosphere. Whether it was streaking through the streets of L.A. in or poking fun at the boy bands that shared the TRL spotlight, the trio was a pretty consistent fixture on MTV's Total Request Live, and solidified Blink-182 as the adolescent kings of pop-punk rock.
