Best Blink 182 Albums


The Top Ten

1 Enema Of The State

Forever number one - The8Bit

DUMPWEED, Going Away to College, Aliens Exist, What's my Age Again, The Party Song. Enough said


Dude come on. How can you start with Dumpweed and not be at the top. This contains all types of songs here. You have "Adams Song" for the low and "all the small things" for highs. They have great deep cuts like "Mutt", "Aliens Exist" and the speed demon "The Party Song"!

2 Blink 182

A perfect album, this album blends the sensibilities of latter day Blink with the fun and energy of their early material. Every song serves its place on the record and the record flows together seamlessly. Simply a masterpiece in pop-punk.

Better than enema, in my opinion.

This album is an absolute MASTERPIECE... do you hear me? MASTERPIECE. This is the very first album I have listened through all the way without skipping ANY of the songs. Plus, this album shows a fantastic mature side of Blink 182 while remaining pop punk. With an opener like Feeling This, you know the album is going to be good. I miss you is one of the greatest songs ever written (their best in my opinion). Down is the perfect mix of maturity and punk on this album. All of this features an interesting mix of the cure and Blink, while I'm lost without you delivers a somber, slightly depressing, yet quality ending to the album. This is probably my favorite album ever, and it is worth ten times the money I paid for it

This album is one of my all time favorites. Also, blink-182 is one of my favorite bands, I love most of their music and this album is their pinnacle! They experimented a lot and had great success, in "Feelin' This" there is a lot of overlapping vocal parts and different sound effects and a synthesizer used. "I Miss You" is this dark and beautiful love song and "Go" is a short, fast-paced, punk-rock jam and that shows a little but of the variation on this album.

This album flows so beautifully and has so many great songs. This was also a big turning point in terms of maturity where a deeper emotional side of Tom and Mark are mentioned throughout the tracks.

3 Dude Ranch

Gives you a new view on life, a better life.

Alright so I haven't listened to blink in about one year, so I figured that I would try to see if their music still held up. I popped in my dude ranch CD and it still rules! The most punk rock energy and had better songs that Cheshire Cat (although they are both great). But if someone told me blink isn't relevant I would direct them to this record

It's the best album of all time ever

If people who voted on this list actually listened to all blinks albums they would realise that dude ranch is undoubtedly a punk masterpiece and their best album

4 Take off your Pants and Jacket

Personally my favorite album of blink-182 - vhfnell

Listen to the songs after the hits... After stay together for the kids you might think oh I don't know any of these.. But they are great! It is better than enema all the way thru (enema does have the better top 3 songs) but this has first date, rock show, stay together for the kids, anthem part II, but listen to every single song. You will like every one. Reckless abandon and roller coaster are my two favorites

As a teenager, I can relate to this album. It basically talks about parties, dates, friends, having crushes on people, relationships, it's just great and relatable.

This album has a song for everything you're going through as a teenager. Being hurt, shut down, going to a party, meeting a girl, going through a family divorce, being isolated or lonely. You name it, this album has it.

5 Cheshire Cat

Amazing masterpiech, from toast and bananas to wasting time some classics on here and I can't emphasize this more, listen to this full album. if we were including demos I wouldve voted for buddha but I don't know, still goooddd

Perfect skate punk masterpiece. This and Dude Ranch are the best Blink albums before they went down the more commercial pop punk route.

Relatable lyrics, not a single bad song on the album

I'll be honest, I never cared for this one. Too many filler tracks. At this point in their career, they had simple melodies, but haven't fully found their identity yet. And for some reason, I liked Buddha more. - marmalade_skies

6 Neighborhoods

To be honest, I really like this album. It is undoubtedly a different sound than before, but it isn't like they aren't the same band anymore. While songs like "Up All Night" and "Ghost on the Dancefloor" bring a new sound to the band, others like "Heart's All Gone" and "MH 4.18.2011" sound much like their earlier songs. Even if She Falls may very well be the best song ever written, and overall, it's just a great album from a great band who have finally come back and saved music from (c) rap and pop

Up All Night is amazing and hard, I like how Blink 182 matured in this album, I actually like it better than California due to the interesting maturity of this. This album proves that Blink-182 can play harder rock. Tom has awesome vocals by the way, but one con in this album is that Mark barely sings, I think he needs more songs because he has a good voice too.

I listened to all of their Albums, and I can without a doubt say, that I think that this one is the best one. Maybe it is because I grew along with this band, but I think the arrangement and the way that they deliver the sound has never been better on any of the other ones. I just love it!

I really like this album, even if it has a different sound. Songs like "Ghost on the Dancefloor", "Even if She Falls", "Up All Night" are beautiful.

7 California

In my opinion, this is my least favorite Blink-182 album. Matt is a good musician, but he is just not suited to be in the band. I have to admit, I like Bored To Death, that is a good song. But their lyrics aren't as good anymore, and Mark doesn't sound as good as he used to be. Matt sounds too much like Mark, so there is nothing really interesting, I have to admit, I like his guitar riffs. But I don't get how this got good reviews, this is actually my least favorite Blink-182 album. The band is really not as good without Tom, the one who started the band, and his voice is part of what made Blink iconic, I loved hearing it, and he always plays those catchy, loud guitar riffs with those amazingly written lyrics. But I support the fact that he needs to do what he wants to do.

At first listen, all any real blink fan hears is, "no Mark, no blink". But give it a chance and any real blink fan will notice this is as blink as blink has been since "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket". It is right there alongside "Take Off" and "Enema" for their 3 phenomenal albums.

This album is good, but I would still call it their worst one. There is way too much emphasis on the vocal aspect of each song, and it feels like the instrumental portion is neglected. NEVER in a million years would I say that Matt Skiba was the problem here; he's awesome. The one to blame is John Feldman's over-producing.

It's not a bad album. The first song definitely leaves a mark. There's some good lyrics on here and catchy tunes. The problem is that 5 or 6 of the songs sound exactly the same. - marmalade_skies

8 Buddha

Listen to 21 days and all their "demos" of chesire cat songs. Worth listening to all the way!

This is the most punk rock, skate punk Blink-182 album in my opinion. I love the skating vibes in this album and the rawness of it.

That carousel bass intro... Damn really sets the mood for the whole album

This song is top 5 worthy. How is Neighbourhoods above this?

9 The Mark Tom and Travis Show

couldnt decide between this and toypj but its just hilarious - bmsn14319


This album is just hilarious.
"When I was in 5th grade, I found out that my dad's wiener was bigger than mine, and, still is.

10 Dogs Eating Dogs

An absolutely amazing EP. Blink's usual sound aside, songs like Dogs Eating Dogs and Disaster are absolute tunes. Disaster especially is a phenomenal song.

I feel like this EP is extremely under rated. It may not have the punky-sound from their earlier albums but it's still great! Not a single bad song.

Dude what, this album deserves the number 4 spot and dude ranch deserves 3

Sounds like a perfect continuation From their self titled album. 100 times better than neighborhoods!

The Contenders

11 Greatest Hits

All of my favorites, I like how (my favorite blink song) Dammit and Josie sound remastered, and how Whats My Age Again, All the Small Things, my other favorite Adam's Song, Down, and Always don't have the connections on them.

Has all the best of blink-182, more of a compilation album then actual album but has all the best of the pop rock band

Greatest hits. Is it enough?

Legitimately all of their best songs

12 They Came to Conquer Uranus

Zulu and wrecked him are very good songs

Great demo album☺

I love the new album. Yes, Tom isn't there, but the lyrics are so meaningful, especially for a Blink album. After hearing some of the singles, I really thought it was gonna suck, but it looks like that's what they had in mind. The album is Blink 182's sound but modernized. No, it's certainly no Enema of the State, but still worth your time.

Best Blink-182 album. I said it. - TobyT

Lol so good

Best thing they’ve released since self titled
