Review Summary: so thats that. blink 182 is loved and hated by many critics and punk rock fans around the world, but one things clear. Blink-182 will still hold a place in many pop punk fans' hearts

In the world of pop punk in the late 90s you have bands like green day and the offspring releasing hit after hit, but then you also have a band known as BLINK-182 who have since then proven themselves to be hit song writers in their own right. Blink-182 is most commonly known as the 3 guys who ran around naked in the video for their song "whats my age again", but before they rised to mainstream success and world domination, they were just a punk band from san diego with a few a lot potty humor and catchy pop punk songs about being in love, falling outta love, boredom, parents, etc.
So here is the infamous song by song summary/rating

The album dude ranch starts off with a bang!

1. Pathetic- 8/10
Pathetic shows Blink's use of two lead vocalists right away when you hear tom and marks voices clashing together. guitar is pretty good, bass is audible and good, and drums are fast and well... good. good song

2. Voyeur- 7/9
A pretty good song about lust and being a creeper. Tom's voice may be annoying to some, but to the people who can stand listening to him, you'll love his yong rasp and signature blink type-singing. good guitar, bass, drums.

3. Dammit- 9/10
Probably the most commerical successful song and one of the best on the album. dammit has an addicting main riff for guitar and any guitar players who love playing blink-182. marks vocals sound young and raspy and this is just an all around amazing song. scott raynors drumming is also at its best.

4. Boring- 6/10
Pretty much a filler. Its a short song. Its toms voice. Its a cool intro. Its an ok song. Funny Outro.

5. Dick lips- 8/10
A very good song that tom wrote about getting drunk at a school basketball game and losing his parents' trust. this is a song a lot of people can relate to. (the losing parents trust... not getting drunk at a basketball game) Toms singing is good... the guitar is good. bass is good. drums are good.
GOOD SONG!!!

6. Waggy- 7/10
Waggy is a pretty good song that is sung by mark. it seems like a filler at first, but yet when listening to it... the more and more you listen the more and more you like the song. Especially when hoppus sings about jacking off in his room alone. :P

7.Enthused- 8/10
This is another very good song sung by tom. The vocals are catchy and the guitar in the intro is amazing.

8. untitled- 8/10
just like enthused this song is also very good. its sung by tom, has catchy vocals, a cool plam muted guitar riff, and a message a lot of people may relate to. funny skit at the end too.

9. apple shampoo-8/9
Another good song sung by mark. The lyrics is very well written and everything else is also well done.

10. Emo-7/10
This song is pretty good. The message is pretty easy to figure out-its about just wanting more in life
guitar, bass, drums-all good. marks vocals good. and when tom joins in with mark in the end.. its kinda cool

11. Josie-9/10
An amzing song. fast, catchy, fun, and exactly what old school blink should sound like. everything is well done and played.

12. A new hope- 7/10
Pretty good song about starwars. -MARK HOPPUS'S FAVORITE MOVIE!!!! GOOD SONG!!!! especially toms guitar work

13. Degenerate- 7/10
A joke song about a man who always gets arrested. its pretty funny. toms singing is gold. and its just an all around funny good joke song.

14. lemmings- 8/10
Very good song. thats all i can say about this. listen to it a few times and you'll love it

15. I'm sorry- 7/10
This is a pretty good song to end the album with. toms voice is (no surprise) the same ol' chipmunky slightly outta tune thing you've heard before. mark joins in singing im sorry tons of times and at the end theres a pause then another joke skit comes in with mark and marks dog.
