Blink : Take Off Your Pants And Jacket - NME
Blink might never find themselves in danger of becoming respectable, committed as they are to three-chord kicks, bathroom-graffiti gags and staying quicker on the trou-dropping trigger than Britney Spears. But as they plow in their relatively un-self-conscious way through the emotional hurdles of lust, terror, pain and rage, they reveal more about themselves and their audience than they even intend to, turning adolescent malaise into a friendly joke rather than a spiritual crisis.
Instead, the dumbass cartoon twerps of Take Off Your Pants and Jacket are a significant band in spite of themselves. For those about to jacket, we salute you.

They're good for filling up the seats up front. Pity the headliner, for instance, that gets blown off the stage by the band before it.

Take Off Your Pants and Jacket
All I did all day long was skateboard. It was all I cared about. So I didn't notice too much [else going on]. When I got home [one] day, my dad's furniture was gone, my mom was inside crying and everything just erupted at that point. I was 18, sitting in my driveway when it all went down. So I just took everything from that day and put it into a song. Bassist Mark Hoppus called "Everytime I Look for You" the most obvious combination of the band's disparate elements, including "distorted drone guitar, poppier verses and chorus, [and] punk to bombastic [drums].
