What's Your Age Again? Happy Birthday to Blink 182's "Enema of the State"

Pop Punk Turns 20

June 3, 2019



Over the weekend, pop punk celebrated a huge milestone. Blink 182's Enema of the State turned 20 years old. 

Now I know what you may be thinking. What does this matter? Well this was the album that collectively threw Blink into the mainstream and brought a whole generation, my whole generation a soundtrack to high school! 

20 years ago today in a galaxy far, far away....Enema of the State was released and forever changed our lives. Thanks to you, it took our band places we never could have dreamed of going. And it was a ton of fun! Share your stories about Enema. Tell us about the first time you heard it and what it means to you. #Enema20
