Arguably one of the most influential groups of the nineties, pop punk pioneers Blink 182 formed in San Diego in 1992 with front man Tom DeLonge, bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus, and drummer Scott Raynor making up the trio. They achieved their first taste of mainstream success with 1997's Dude Ranch which featured their fast paced teen anthem Dammit. Touring in 1998 saw drummer Raynor depart the group, replaced by new member Travis Barker. Further success beckoned when they released their smash hit Enema of The State in 1999, full of their signature tunes Adam's Song, All The Small Things and What's My Age Again. These hits made them MTV favourites and led to their cameo in the teen comedy American Pie.
