Off The Record – ALBUM FOCUS – Enema Of The State, Blink-182

Have you ever wanted To listen to a new band or musician and not sure where to start? Well, instead of listening to their commercial music, why not start with something off the album first!  Today we look at an old album because sometimes it is fun to look at ones from the archive. Todays album is a really great punk rock album and really defines how great Blink were in their peak – Enema Of The State


I remember the first time I heard it as a teenager – it made me happy because it was so heavy with guitars and a great drum beat. It is such a great track with a strong energy.

Don’t Leave Me

This is a real solid punk rock song, this has real heavy guitars and an addictive drum beat that makes this such a fantastic. The lyrics really define this era of Blink-182 and it is this sort of style of melody that made them as big as they are.


Aliens Exist

I think this is an important song to mention as this whole ideology behind the song has lead to Blink 2.0 and farewell to Tom. Right from the beginning, Delonge has been a huge fan of Space and other life forms and this song was one of those songs that really defined this love. It is also one of their songs that a lot of fans loved watching them perform live.


Going Away College

In some ways, this is sort of like the romantic song of the album as it is about love when you go away to College. It has some really lovely lyrics and the thing that makes this song absolutely stand out is the wonderful guitar riff that intertwines to the song throughout the song.



Every album needs a great song to finish and this one is such an iconic Blink song it is really hard not to mention it. The guitar rifts at the beginning are absolutely outstanding and really in some ways define Blink musically in this era.
