Enema of the State was an enormous commercial success, though the band was criticized as synthesized, manufactured pop only remotely resembling punk and pigeonholed as a joke act due to the puerile slant of its singles and associating music videos.
The album sold over 15 million copies worldwide, catapulting the band to become one of the biggest rock bands of the turn of the century. ", "All the Small Things" and "Adam's Song" became hit singles and MTV staples, generating heavy radio airplay.
Don Lithgow, owner and operator of DML Studios, recalled that the trio's celebrity had increased considerably during the recording process: "[It] was different than their other sessions — girls hanging around outside, calling their friends on cell phones. To record Enema of the State, Blink-182 turned to punk rock producer Jerry Finn, who previously worked on Green Day's breakthrough album, Dookie (1994).
Hoppus and De Longe were impressed with his work when they recorded "Mutt" for its placement on the American Pie soundtrack.
Finn was key in producing the fast-paced, melodic mixes, creating pop punk with a more radio-friendly, accessible polish.
"A few of us were standing behind the stage and vividly remember the feeling of this is the new Blink.After a long series of performances at various clubs and festivals and several indie recordings throughout the 1990s, Blink-182 first achieved popularity on the Warped Tour and in Australia following the release of their sophomore effort Dude Ranch (1997) and its rock radio hit "Dammit".To record their third album, Blink-182 turned to veteran punk rock producer Jerry Finn, who previously worked on Green Day's breakthrough album, Dookie (1994).Enema was the band's first album to feature second drummer Travis Barker, who replaced original drummer Scott Raynor.The group recorded with Finn over a period of three months at numerous locations in their hometown of San Diego and in Los Angeles.Enema of the State is the third studio album by American rock band Blink-182.Produced by Jerry Finn, the album was released on June 1, 1999 by MCA Records.Guitarist Tom De Longe and bassist Mark Hoppus primarily culled stories from friends and autobiographical situations to craft summery tracks revolving around breakups, suburban parties and maturity, as well as more offbeat subject matter such as UFO conspiracy theories.The cover artwork for Enema of the State features porn star Janine Lindemulder famously clad in a nurse uniform, and the title is a pun on the term enemy of the state.Finn was harder on the trio to record better takes, and Hoppus credited Finn with knowing a great deal about punk rock music, but also helping the band establish a more pop-inspired sound.In addition, the band had so much fun with Finn that there were days when very little work was accomplished: "Recording can get pretty monotonous, but at least we could laugh with Jerry," recalled Hoppus.
