#85 – Blink 182 – M&Ms
I got into Blink 182 when the rest of the world did, back in 1999 when they released Enema of the State. I had a punk loving pal who used to give me shit for wearing their gear; he listened to their tunes before they went mainstream. To my credit, at least I went back and gave their early stuff a chance. Turns out it was really pretty awesome.
M&M’s was my favorite. I don’t associate it with any one particular memory. It doesn’t remind me of a girl or a time in my life. I don’t even put it on many playlists anymore. But when I started picking out songs that could make this list and compared them against each other, M&Ms beat a lot of classics.
It’s just a really standout, really remarkable tune.
