Prepare to feel old because blink-182’s Enema Of The State turns 21 years old today. The band’s third album with the iconic nurse on the cover contained some fan favorites, including “Adam’s Song,” “What’s My Age Again?” and “All The Small Things.” The latter featured the vocal stylings of both Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus, with a young Travis Barker on drums.
Celebrate the anniversary of one of the most influential albums in alternative music by seeing if you still remember the lyrics to their most popular song to date.
More on blink-182
Hoppus recently answered some fan questions while playing the Nintendo game and spilled some secrets about blink-182’s next album. He also shared what he knows about a possible blink-182 reunion with Tom DeLonge.
Travis Barker appeared on an emo remix of Demi Lovato’s “I Love Me” in May. He’s also been working with Machine Gun Kelly on his pending pop-punk album Tickets To My Downfall out this summer. The musician/actor dropped the first official single, “Bloody Valentine,” which Barker recently appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden to perform with him.
Now, it appears Hoppus is back to focusing on blink-182 music. During his Animal Crossing livestream, he was asked if he had any upcoming plans to record new music soon. He revealed that blink-182 are already recording for their follow-up to 2019’s NINE.
“I recorded literally yesterday, so [the] upcoming recording is already happening,” Hoppus says.
“It was new blink and not Simple Creatures or anything else,” he says.

Following this, Hoppus confirmed there is a possibility that the collaborations that were a part of the NINE recording process but were never released will be on the next album. Back in April, blink-182’s collaboration with Miley Cyrus on their song “I Really Wish I Hated You” leaked. The song was originally recorded for NINE, but the version without Cyrus’ vocals made the album.
Hoppus also touched on the topic of DeLonge rejoining blink-182. In May, the Angels & Airwaves vocalist shared that he plans to rejoin blink-182 when the time is right. He also revealed that he still talks to both Hoppus and Barker often.
However, when asked during his livestream if DeLonge is rejoining the band, Hoppus kept his response simple. He also didn’t elaborate on any details about the potential reunion.
“I don’t know,” he says.
