    While Green Day was arguably the first punk band of the ’90s to achieve crossover success, blink-182 launched a second wave of punk-pop fever towards the end of the decade that centered more on goofy, slapstick humor and adolescent angst (the name of blink’s first hit was “Dammit (Growing Up)”). The SoCal trio features one of the best drummers around, Travis Barker (formerly of the Aquabats), the distinct snotty whine of frontman/bassist Mark Hoppus, and the power chords of Tom DeLonge. The band enjoyed major commercial success beginning in 1997 with its sophomore album, Dude Ranch, which escalated with 1999’s multi-platinum Enema of the State (featuring the singles “What’s My Age Again” and “All the Small Things) and peaked with 2001’s chart-topping Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. Going on indefinite hiatus in 2005 after DeLonge left the band to form Angels & Airwaves, blink-182 reunited for a tour in 2009 and released its sixth album, Neighborhoods, in 2001.
