What's My Age Again? (2:29)

Cover of Enema of the State

From Enema of the State and 12 other releases

“What’s My Age Again?” is the first single released from blink-182’s third studio album Enema of the State, originally released in 1999, this song was Travis Barker’s first single with the band. The song peaked at #2 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart as well as #19 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The single was later re-released following the success of “All the Small Things”.

The song was originally going to be titled “Peter Pan Complex”, furthering the theme of the song — about an extremely immature youngster who, despite being 23 years old, still behaves like a prepubescent child.

The music video (released in 1999) was directed by Marcos Siega and Brandon PeQueen and involves the band running through the streets naked, an act later parodied in the band’s 2000 single, “Man Overboard”; they run through television shows, outdoor sidewalks, and picnics; do some dances, and attract a lot of attention. The band members were wearing thongs for the outdoor scenes but were naked for the indoor scenes. It was comically censored throughout the video, except at the end of the video, in which it was shown uncensored. Porn star Janine Lindemulder is featured in the video. She also appears on the front cover of Enema of the State.

In 2001, vocalist and bassist Mark Hoppus stated that:

    My early teenage heroes! Back when I was fond of blink-182, mostly because of Mark. Over the years my musical preferences have evolved a lot, but still a nice trip down memory lane listening to them :)

    It's so cool that this album came out when I was a year old. I just wish I had it. Enema Of The State is pretty much my favorite Blink album.
