Blink-182 releases Enema of the State
Enema of the State is the third studio album by American pop punk band Blink-182.
Recorded at various locations throughout California with producer Jerry Finn, the album was first released on June 1, 1999 in the United States on MCA Records. "What's My Age Again?", "All the Small Things" and "Adam's Song" were released as singles, each highly successful.
The follow-up to the band's successful sophomore record, Dude Ranch, the band booked multiple recording sessions to produce the album. Shortly before production began, the band fired original drummer Scott Raynor, who was replaced by Travis Barker. The band strived to achieve a cleaner sound in the studio than that of their previous efforts. The iconic album cover features porn star Janine Lindemulder in a nurse uniform.
The highly anticipated record received positive reviews from professional music critics and was a major commercial success worldwide. It has sold over 15 million copies worldwide, making it the trio's highest selling album. In the years following the album's release, Enema of the State and its pervasive impact on music has allowed critics to regard it as a landmark pop punk album.
