Despite the fact that no porn stars grace the cover of Take Off Your Pants & Jacket, don't think for a minute that Blink 182 have abandoned writing about sex, toilet humor, and the kinds of awkward social moments familiar to every teenager. With plenty of pop-punk hooks and choppy guitar riffs in their arsenal, Mark, Tom, and Travis pick up where they left off on Enema of the State, opening with the generational diatribe "Anthem Part II." From here this goofy trio taps into the ups and downs of adolescent angst, including the pain of unrequited infatuation ("Story of a Lonely Boy"), divorce ("Stay Together for the Kids"), and the feeling of being an outsider amid high school's vicious social tribes ("Give Me One Good Reason"). Blink's knack for delivering four-on-the-floor tempos and catchy sing-along choruses keeps things from getting too weighty, and the band's flip attitude makes for plenty of funny moments, from a 40-second, punk-fueled flip-off of an ex-girlfriend ("Happy Holidays, You Bastard") to a dissection of the terrors and insecurities associated with early courtship ("First Date"). Blink 182's combination of pop smarts and endearing vulnerability dispels any notion that they're only capable of being the Adam Sandlers of punk rock.
