Drummer Travis Barker shared a clip of the band’s “First Date” video on Instagram with the caption “20 years.” Singer Mark Hoppus had more to say with, “Hell yes. 20 years ago today Take Off Your Pants and Jacket came out. After the overwhelming and unexpected success of Enema of the State we wanted to write a darker, harder album that pushed the boundaries of what blink-182 could do. I love this record. Thank you to everyone who listened to it then and continues to put it on two decades later. ♥️ Endless love to @travisbarker @tomdelonge and Jerry Finn.” What is your favorite song off of Take Off Your Pants and Jacket?
