This week pop punk kids everywhere got the news that blink-182’s first album without Tom Delonge was complete. I’m sure that I’m not the only one who is eager to hear what Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio) brings to the table.

That being said, today’s Throwback Album is blink-182’s 2001 release “Take Off Your Pants and Jacket”. The follow up to their breakout record “Enema of the State” is celebrating it’s 15th anniversary this year. This record has been considered the most “fun” record that blink has ever put out due to the summer time pop punk sounds songs like, ”The Rock Show” and “First Date” surrounding humor filled immature tunes like, “Happy Holidays You Bastard” and “Mothers Day”. Through the fun and the humor though their deep songs like “Stay Together for The Kids” that was wrote about a time when Tom Delonge was 16 and his parents broke up. It’s a song that truly shows that even though it is rare, blink has a darker and more emotional side to their song writing.

Personally this is my favorite blink-182 release to date, and with the news of the new record being finished, the blink-182 hype is strong and alive!
