I was watching videos from Blink-182's Coachella performance and reading the set list, I realised it was really heavily weighted to Enema of the State and Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. I already listened to Take Off recently, so I listened to Enema instead.

There's just not one bad song. Puerile, sure. Some lyrics are quite dated, to childing 90s humour. But it's really catchy pop-punk, just pure nostalgic fun.

If the new Blink-182 album is in the same vein as these two, and the setlist plus new song EDGING suggest as much, then we could be in for some classic Blink.
